Evaluating Student Results by Item

After creating and distributing Managed Assessments, educators can evaluate student results using several assessment reports:

Note: Each report is available for inactive/archived courses and sections in addition to ones currently in session.

AMP Assessment Reports Area

To open and review reports for Schoology Managed Assessments, click Assessment Reports in the menu on the left side of your home page. This brings you to a tiled list of your assessments, in alphabetical order from left to right and top to bottom. Click an assessment’s tile to open its Assessment Summary dashboard.

From the dashboard, you can review high-level item- and student-based information about the assessment, and select from the different options to drill into those reports.

Item Performance

The Item Performance chart displays the number of items in the assessment, and a circle graph shows your students’ performance based on their average score, color-coded in three bands:

  • High (Green): Greater than 75%.
  • Medium (Yellow): Between 50-75%.
  • Low (Red): Under 50%.

The total number of students in each band displays to the right of the labels in the report key.

Click the View Item Performance button to review a more granular breakdown of your students’ item performance on the assessment.

  • Item: The middle column displays the item prompt. Click any prompt to open its Item Information report.
  • Average Score: The right column shows the average score percentage of all students who took the assessment.
