How do I view statistics about a completed assessment?

Updated

Statistics for student submissions to an assessment, such as average scores and standard deviation, can be viewed in the Tests & Quizzes tool. If the assessment has automatically graded questions, statistics at the Question level can be viewed on the Item Analysis page, which provides an overview of the percentages of questions answered correctly, and how many times an answer option was selected.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the course Tool Menu.

Select the Published-All View.

Select the Published-All option in the View drop-down to view the assessments that have been released to students.

Go to the assessment submissions.

Select the Scores option from the drop-down menu for the assessment that requires scoring changes.

Alternatively, select the numeral of submissions within the the Submitted column to view the submissions for that assessment.

Select the Statistics tab.

View Statistics page.

Statistics displays information including the number of students who submitted the test, average scores, standard deviation, how many students selected particular responses to each question, and the percentage of students who answered an automatically graded question correctly.

NOTE: If you have allowed multiple submissions for your assessment, you may have multiple view options on the Statistics page: either the Highest or Last Submission, or All Submissions. Available view options depend on your assessment settings. For example, if the highest score for a multiple-submission assessment is set, the Highest Submission view is available by default. If the Average Score for all submissions is set, the All Submissions will be the only view option on the Statistics page.

Select Item Analysis to view question-level statistics.

View Item Analysis page.

If the assessment has automatically graded questions, the Item Analysis page provides a table overview of the percentages of students who answered each automatically graded question correctly, how many students selected a particular answer option for each question, and how many of the students who submitted the test provided No Answer to that question.

NOTE: If  multiple submissions are allowed on an assessment, there will be two view options on the Item Analysis page: either the Highest or Last Submission, or All Submissions. Available view options depend on the assessment settings. For example, if the highest score for a multiple-submission assessment is set, the Highest Submission by default. If the average score for all submissions is set, only the All Submissions will be displayed on the Item Analysis page.
