First off, the Monitor tab provides a couple of statistics based on the practice exercises the students have completed.
Our formative tests give extra insights, depending on the type of test you have chosen. We offer two types of tests: automatic tests and manual tests. Keep reading to find out which information you can extract from Grasple.
1. Practice analytics in Monitor per student
On the page Monitor, you can find information about the activity of your students. On the first tab, under “Students”, you can see how many students are invited, registered, and active in the course. You can also see how much progress the students have made; this is a percentage of the completed lessons versus the total amount of lessons in your course.
In this overview, you cannot see which specific lessons the students have completed, only their progress on the entire course. Formative tests are a good way to see which subjects could use some extra attention in class.
Furthermore, by clicking on a student's name, an overview of the student's progress over the whole course is displayed.
2. Practice analytics in Monitor per subject
In the “Subjects” tab in Monitor, you can see how many students have completed a specific lesson, and how well the students did. The percentage at the right hand side of the row shows how many questions have been answered in one attempt. So if that percentage is very high, the lesson was apparently not very difficult.
3. Automatic tests
In an automatic test, a student will get X randomly selected exercises from the lessons in the selected module. The test is thus unique for every student (good against cheating). The results of the tests are categorized per subject, which makes it easy to extract which subjects the students have mastered, and which subjects need a bit more attention. Take a look at the following screenshot.
4. Manual tests
In a manual test, you choose a certain amount of exercises which will be given to all students. The results are more straight-forward than those of the automatic tests: you will see a bar graph with the distribution of the grades, and you can see the three exercises with the lowest scores. This way, you can see which questions need to be discussed in class.
If you select one of the exercises via the question with lowest score OR by pressing on the eye icon in the results, you can see the answers given by the students. You can turn the options “individual answers” and “student names” on or off, such that the statistics can stay anonymous. Take a look at the following screenshot.
Icons in the result pages
In the overview pages there are 5 icon-color combinations that can appear for a student-question combination. Each icon-color combination is explained below:
- Green circle/answer: this means the student scored all points on this question.
- Orange circle/answer: this means the student scored some of the points on this question.
- Red circle/answer: this means the student scored none of the points on this question.
- Red question mark: this means the student skipped the question (and thus is marked incorrect).
- Grey question mark: this means the student did not received the question in their test (for example when using Question Pools).
NOTE: having question pools in your test will result in many question not received by students, resulting in many "grey question mark" icons in your overviews.
