Using Assessment Analytics 2.0 allows you to take a deeper dive into the performance on assessments that are given in Otus. To access Assessment Analytics 2.0, follow the steps 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 from the Otus Team: 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.

❗ This article is written specifically for Rubric Assessments that use the points grading scale. If you are looking for details on how to analyze a different type of assessment, check out this article.
❗ Please note - Assessment 2.0 is updated nightly. For example, if you are looking for an assessment that was graded today, it will be available to view in Assessment 2.0 tomorrow.
The completion widget will show you the overall completion status of the assessment.
1: A visual depiction of the number of graded (dark blue) assessments relative to the total number of students this assessment was assigned to.
2: The number of graded assessments.
3: The total number of students this assessment was assigned to.
4: The percentage of assessments that have been graded.
The performance breakdown allows you to a summary of the results, including the highest score and average score.
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. For details on the other ways to see the breakdown (by class, group, or gender), keep reading, or skip ahead 🔗 .
Customizing the X-Axis
➡️ Change Order: you can choose from highest to lowest (default) and lowest to highest.
➡️ Edit X-Axis: you can change the percentage ranges.
As shown above, the default contains 10 ranges (the maximum amount), with equal intervals of 10.
💡 Tip from the Otus Team: the ranges do not have to be equal intervals; the only rule is that they have to add up to 100.
See below for examples of customized ranges:
Example 1: Four ranges with equal intervals of 25.
Example 2: Three ranges, which do not have equal intervals. The first interval is 70, the second is 15, and the third is 15.
❓ What do these buttons do?
1 - Removes that range (x)
2 - Adds a range (+)
3 - Evenly distributes the intervals based on the number of ranges you have (=). See example below; originally, the three ranges were 70, 15, and 15. Selecting the = button changed them to equal intervals of 33 (to the hundredths place).
❓ Can you customize the y-axis?
When looking at Overall performance The y-axis will always remain the number of students. The intervals will change based on the total number of students being measured. It is not something that can be customized
➡️ Other Performance Breakdown Options:
In addition to Overall performance, the performance breakdown can be analyzed in three other ways:
If multiple classes took this assessment, you can see the average percentage of each class.
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. If district-created groups haven't been assigned to your students, you will not have any data to display with this option.
If students have an assigned gender attribute, you can see the average percentage separated by gender.
❗ Note: if gender has not been an assigned attribute in your classes, you will not have any data to display with this option.
The Student Performance will show the performance of each individual student that was assigned the assessment. You can see this analysis in two forms:
The default sort order is alphabetical by last name. You can change the sort order by clicking on the heading of any column.
Let's analyze the last row of the table to better understand the columns:
Clicking on any student in the table will show a more detailed view of that student. Let's click on the last student, also used in the example above.
The rubric analysis will show details regarding how many students performed at each level of the descriptor.
In the example below, there were three descriptors on the rubric assessment, so there are three horizontal bars representing the number of students performing at each level.
Each section has the descriptor details, including the description and criteria for each performance level.
If you are looking for other ways to filter the data, you can select the filter icon in the top-right corner. When you make any selections here, the Run Report button will flash, indicating that you need to re-run the report to show the results for the selected filters.
Otus Live Video
Below is a video from our Otus Live series that show how to analyze rubric assessment data in Assessment Analytics 2.0. This video first shows a points-based rubric example, then moves into a standards-based rubric example.
When I use the filters, the report isn't updating. Why is that? You will want to select the filters first, then select Run Report.
Can I pull up data for prior school years? Yes; administrator accounts have this ability. This can also be done using Historical Analytics.
How long does it take for an assessment to appear in Analytics 2.0? Assessment 2.0 is updated nightly. For example, if you are looking for an assessment that was graded today, it will be available to view in Assessment 2.0 tomorrow.
Can I see how long it took for a student to complete an assessment? Time to complete is not available for rubric assessments, but it is available for Advanced and Simple assessments.
