In this video, we will show you how to use assignment reports as an educator.
To access assignment reports as an educator, you must be a portal educator and be signed in to educators.nagwa.com.
When you first sign in, you will default to the “Analytics” page, but if you are elsewhere, click on “Analytics” in the toolbar.
You’ll see useful summary information for your portal, including the number of students, the number of worksheet questions answered, the number of assessment questions answered, and the number of videos watched!
If you scroll down, you’ll see a chart showing the number of active and closed assessments and a graphic to show the portal-wide data for correct, incorrect, and unanswered questions.
At the bottom of the page, you’ll see links to two groups of reports: “Assignments” and “Worksheets”.
Assignment reports provide you with information on how your students have performed in the assessments that you have created and assigned to them. The worksheet reports will give you information about the ready-made worksheets that your students have practised independently or under your direction.
We are going to focus on assignment reports here.
Let’s first click on “Assessment Reports”. Here, you’ll see a list of all the assessments assigned to your students with summary information about each assessment. To see the results of each individual assessment, scroll to the right-hand side and click on “View Reports”.
Now, you’ll see a list of all the students to whom the assessment has been assigned. If you’d like to see the results of a particular student on this assessment, click “View Report” next to the particular student that you are interested in.
Now, you’ll see a list of all the questions in the assessment and the answers the student provided. If they answered a question correctly, their answer will be highlighted green. If they answered incorrectly, their answer will be highlighted red and the correct answer highlighted green.
If we head back to the bottom of the “Analytics” home page, we’ll now look at “All Courses with One Course per Line”.
This is a diagnostic report that provides data based on the lessons from which the assessments were built. For example, if you created an assessment for your students based on solving linear equations but chose questions from three lessons contained in the course, you would receive an analysis of how your students performed on the questions from each lesson.
You’ll see the list of all courses aligned to your classes with one course per line. For example, we have assigned the “Mathematics GCSE Higher Level” course to our “Transfiguration-4” class, so we’ll see this course appear in the list of all courses.
These reports allow us to easily see the progress of our students in relation to a particular course and highlight any areas of weakness.
The table provides summary information about the course and the students enrolled in it. If you scroll to the right-hand side of the table, you will have the option to view the report information by class, by lesson, or by student.
For example, if you would like to view the performance of a particular class enrolled in a course, click “Classes” and you will see a list of all classes enrolled in the course with one class per line.
Find the class that you are interested in and you will be able to see the summary statistics for this class. We are going to look at our “Transfiguration-4” class. You can then filter the report by lesson or by student.
To see the class’s performance per lesson, scroll to the right-hand side and click “View” under “Lessons”. You will then see the summary statistics of the class for each lesson in the course.
As your students complete more questions from lessons in the course, the report will fill up with data providing you with information on how the class is progressing. For example, we can see here that this particular class has been more successful with “Least Common Multiple” than with “Greatest Common Factor”.
It’s also worth noting that you can download an “XLS” of the report at any stage. And you can update the columns visible in the table by clicking the “i” and then deselecting the information that you don’t want to view. The table will then update as you deselect or select the options. You can also view visual charts of the reports by clicking “Charts” at any stage.
If we head back to the bottom of the “Analytics” home page again, you also have the option to view an assessment report showing “All Students with One Student per Line”. This report shows all of your students and their summary statistics. If you want to look at the results of all the assessments sent to a particular student, for example, for a parents evening, you can scroll to the right of the report and click on “View” next to the student of interest. You can then see summary statistics for each assessment along with the ability to view the student’s actual answers by clicking “View Reports”.
Again, you can simplify the table by clicking “i” and then selecting or deselecting any columns. You can view charts for each reporting level and download an “XLS” version of the report.
