Releasing Student Results - New Portal Beta

August 7, 2017 Kelly Basara

Timely feedback on assessments can be provided to students that impact their learning experience. Releasing results is a quick and easy way to show students how they performed on a recent exam that enables them to monitor their own progress and make adjustments to their studying strategies.

Users may choose the specific information they want to release to students after each assessment. The report will show their grade versus the class average, as well as give them a breakdown of their performance based on categories.


Releasing Student Results

1. Navigate to the Assessments tab within your course.

2. Select the delivered assessment from the list.

3. Choose the Reporting/Adjust Scoring sub-tab.

4. Click on the green Release Results button.

5. A new modal window will appear, showing the options provided when releasing results to students.

6. Fill out each section completely:

Step 1: Select the report sections to release

  • Student Overview - Shows the student's score, statistics, and average score for this assessment.
  • Category Performance - Shows the students performance per category within the assessment.

    • ​Only release incorrect questions - Displays only the questions the student answered incorrectly on the assessment.
    • Release answer choice only; without question stem or answer text - Displays only the answer choice selected by the student for all questions on the assessment.
  • Only release categories visible to students - If this option is selected when releasing results to students, it will not include Category Types marked as "internal use only" in the Category Performance section (For more information on creating categories, view our Creating & Adding Another Category reference guide).
