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 (very important). 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.

In this article, you will find the following sections:

❗ This article is written specifically for Simple Assessments that use a standards grading scale. If you are looking for details on how to analyze a different type of assessment, check out this article.


Completion Widget

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.


Item Analysis

The Item Analysis will show the standards performance of each individual question on the assessment. You can see this analysis in two forms:

Table

The default sort order is lowest to highest in order of performance based on the number of students that earned each performance level. You can change the sort order by clicking on the heading of any column.

Let's analyze the second row of the table to better understand the columns:

  • Question: This is question #1.

  • Student Breakdown: This shows the breakdown of how many students performed at each performance level for that question. Hovering over any section will display the performance level and the number of students. On this question, 5 students earned Mastery.

  • Number Correct: Five students earned full credit on this question.

  • Number Incorrect: Four students did not earn full credit on this question.

  • A, B, C, D: One student chose A, two chose B, one chose C, and five chose D. The orange color indicates an incorrect answer choice, while the blue indicates the correct answer choice. True/False questions will only have options A and B, where A represents True and B represents False. Short answer questions will not have any information in these columns (see the first row as an example)

  • Q Type: This was a Multiple Choice question (other options are True/False or Short Answer).

Individual Question

Clicking on any row in the table will show a more detailed view. Let's click on the second row of the table, also used in the example above.

  • You will see the content of the question, along with the answer choices, with the correct answer indicated in dark blue.

  • To the right, you'll see that 5 out of 9 students earned the highest performance level on this question. The doughnut chart shows the relative percentage of students that earned each performance level.

  • You can navigate to the next question or go to the previous question by using the arrows in the top-right corner.

  • To go back to the table, close out the individual item analysis by selecting the x in the top-right corner.


Student Performance

The Student Performance will show the performance of each individual student that was assigned the assessment. You can see this analysis in two forms:

Table

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 first row of the table to better understand the columns:

  • First and Last Name: The first and last name of the student is Chandler Bing.

  • Submitted: This student submitted the assessment on January 13th, 2021.

  • Item Breakdown: This is a visual representation of how many questions the student performed at each level. Hovering over any section will display the name of the performance level and the number of questions. This student earned Mastery on 5 questions.

  • Email: This is the student's email address.

  • Site: This is the school the student is rostered in.

  • Grade: The student's grade level (if assigned) would be in this column.

Individual Student

Clicking on any student in the table will show a more detailed view of that student. Let's click on the first student, also used in the example above.

  • You will find the length of time it took the student to complete the assessment in the upper-right corner.

  • The table contains details for each question; the score, type, and selection (which can also be considered their answer).


Optional Filters

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.
