Using Assessment Analytics 2.0 allows you to take a deeper dive into the performance of assessments that are given in Otus.
This article is written specifically for Assessments that use the points grading scale. If you are looking for details on how to analyze an assessment that uses a standards-based grading scale, click the button below:
Step 1: Navigate to the Analytics module. Note - the screenshot above is from within a teacher account. If you are an administrator, the Analytics module is located second from the top.
Step 2: Select Assessment 2.0.
Step 3: Check the date range.
💡 Tip: The default date range is set for the previous 7 days. If the assessment you are looking for does not fall within that date range, it will not appear in the dropdown menu. For best results, we recommend changing the date range to All Time.
Once you have identified the necessary date range, you can click into the Search Assessment field to see a dropdown list of the assessments that appear within that date range. You can also search using keywords.
Assessment Status Widget
The assessment status widget will show you the overall completion status of the assessment.
On this widget, you will find:
The number of students in each submission status; Not Started, In Progress, Turned In (not pictured), and Graded
The performance breakdown allows you to a summary of the results, including the highest score, average score, and average time to complete.
The x-axis contains the percentage ranges.
The y-axis represents the number of students.
The default display (shown above) is the Overall Performance, which represents all of the students that took the assessment. Each bar represents a 10% range; they are listed highest to lowest from left to right. Hovering over any of the bars will show you the number of students that performed in that range.

➡️ Other Performance Breakdown Options:
In addition to Overall performance, the performance breakdown can be analyzed in other ways.
By Class: If multiple classes took this assessment, you can see the average percentage of each class.
By Student Group: If students in your classes have been assigned to district-created groups, you can see the average percentage of each group.❗Note: only district-created groups will be represented here.
By Gender: If students have an assigned gender attribute, you can see the average percentage separated by gender.
By Grade Level: If students have an assigned gender attribute, you can see the average percentage separated by gender.
By Ethnicity/Race: If students have an assigned an ethnicity/race attribute, you can see the average percentage separated by ethnicity/race.
Example of a Student Group performance breakdown:
Note: This section is only available on Advanced and Simple assessments. If you are viewing a Rubric assessment, this section will be a Rubric Analysis (click here for more information)
The Question Analysis table will show the performance of each individual question on the assessment. You can see this analysis in two forms:
Table displaying all questions
❗ Is the Question Analysis table empty? That indicates the assessment is a + (plus) assessment, which is a grade added directly to the gradebook. Plus assessments do not have individual questions, therefore, the Question Analysis table will be empty.
The default sort order lists the questions in order. You can change the sort order by clicking on the heading of any column.
Let's analyze the first row of the table to better understand the columns:
➡️ Individual Question
Clicking on any row in the table will show a more detailed view.
➡️ Items with Multiple Questions (Advanced Assessments Only)
Do you see questions that have a decimal in the question number? For example:
This means that these items had more than one question in them. In the example above, Item 13 had two questions; each question is given its own row in the table, so the first question is 13.1, and the second is 13.2. You can see the same situation with Item 14. When you click on the particular question, it will show the item in its entirety to maintain the integrity of the assessment, but the score you see will be for that individual assessment.
This section identifies all of the standards assessed on the selected assessment, in addition to the mean (average) performance on each standard across all students that have been graded.
Hover over the standard title to see the full description of the standard:
The performance on the standards is calculated by mean.
Select any section of of the horizontal bar chart to see a more specific breakdown of the performance:
To see only the students that performed at a certain level, select that level. The example below shows only student that performed in the 41-60% range.

Note: This section is only available on Rubric assessments. If you are viewing an Advanced or Simple assessment, this section will be a Question Analysis (see above)
