Otus allows you to upload any kind of 3rd party scores by specifying a minimum score and a maximum score, setting some target sets, and uploading a CSV file with student emails, attempt name and date, and scores.
Fore more info on how to upload 3rd party assessment data, click HERE.
Once the data is uploaded to Otus, you can analyze it by navigating to our analytics module.
This page will show you a tile for every 3rd Party assessment you have uploaded into Otus. Click the tile with the data you wish to view. Each custom assessment can contain multiple tests with multiple attempts, in case your 3rd party assessment company tests multiple times a year, or tests different subjects. Once you've selected the proper tile, select the assessment you'd like to see for that company, and a target set you'd like to show referenced in the analysis.
Depending on what type of 3rd party assessment you select, you may see a pie chart, bar graph, or line plot with student data!
As you scroll down, you'll view an individual breakdown with color coded groups for each set of students in a different target set. By selecting a section of the graph, you can create a flag for students in that section.
At the bottom of the analytics page, you will see a spreadsheet with a row for each student who attempted the assessment. Switch between different attempts with the drop down at the center. Click on a student row for an individual breakdown of their scores for this assessment.
Horizontal Bar Chart Color Key
The image below shows our color scheme for bar charts that have multiple groups. Red will always be the group with the lowest data point, and purple will be the group with the highest.
- If there are greater than 10 target sets, then the scale will repeat itself, but at 50% opacity
- If there are 2 items, the lower is red, the higher is purple
