Understanding the Analysis Report

The Performance Analysis report displays the competency level for each category or learning outcome.  The professor has predetermined the specific category or learning outcome that was tagged to each question delivered on the assessments.

Topic = broad descriptor for each set of learning outcomes

Category/Learning Outcome = specific benchmarks

Exams/Assessments = # of exams this learning outcome has appeared in and has been graded

Questions = # of questions answered tagged with this particular learning outcome

My Average = % of questions answered correctly

Peer Average = % of questions that have been answered correctly by peers answering same questions

Improvement Area = check mark indicates areas that require additional academic focus and effort. (Learning Outcomes are marked as needing improvement if the score is below 50% or 20% below the class average.)
