To access its Dashboard, select the "View" button next to a class.
On the main Dashboard page, the How is My Class Doing? panel provides class-wide metrics on average performance (1), time spent on assignments (2), and participation rates (3). This panel also allows you to compare your current class's average performance against the combined average of all of your class sections to date (4). As your students complete more work in the platform, the Dashboard will also populate strengths and weaknesses (5) to show you your students' strongest and weakest topic areas.
At the bottom of a class Dashboard, you will find panels which allow you to view Assignments, create Quizzing Assignments, and check your Gradebook.
To view your students’ performance on each assigned topic, click the "ASSIGNMENTS" tab at the top of the page, or the "View Assignments" button located in the Learning Assignments panel at the bottom of the Dashboard.
In the Assignments view, you can review due dates, student participation/completion rates, and average time spent on specific Learning and/or Quizzing Assignments.
The Assignments page will open by default to the full list of Learning Assignments for your course. For each topic listed, you will see the assignment Start Date (1) and End Date (2), the rate of Participation showing how many students began the assignment (3), the overall class performance for that assignment (4), and the average Time Spent on that assignment (5).
Class performance (4) can be reviewed at a glance based on the following performance key:
- Red thumbs-down: The average score for the class on the assignment is less than or equal to 69%.
- Yellow thumbs-up: The average score for the class on the assignment is between 70–79%.
- Green thumbs-up: The average score for the class on the assignment is 80% or above.
You can use the Display tab to view separate listings of class performance on Learning Assignments (6) and Quizzing Assignments (7). When in the Learning Assignments display, you can quickly access your Class Setup by clicking the "Edit" button (8), or click "Show Details" for a given topic (9) to review individual student results.
Clicking "Show Details" allows you to view more top-down metrics for the subtopics within a module.
The Details view shows the participation rate, average performance and time spent for each topic within the learning assignment, as well as the Post Assessment. To see how individual students performed on a specific topic, select Show Students.
The Show Students view allows you to see each student's performance-based score on the activity you've selected, as well as date completed and time spent. For Post Assessment assignments, you can also view each student's answers by selecting Results.
In addition to Learning Assignments, you can view metrics for quizzes by selecting the Quizzing Assignments tab at the top of the page.
The Quizzing Assignments display allows you to review the start date, end date and number of questions for each quizzing assignment you've created, along with rates of student participation, performance and time spent. Select the Show Students tab to view individual student results.
You can add new quizzing assignments to your course using the Add Quiz button (1) in the upper right corner. If students have not begun working on a quiz, you can select the Edit button (2) to update the parameters and questions in that quiz. The settings icon (3) can be used to Preview a finished quiz as it will appear to your students, or to Delete a quiz you no longer want to assign.
