Insight reports are a powerful and flexible way to view your students' performance. In this article, we'll explore:
How to find data reporting tools on Albert.
How to apply filters, to automatically generate custom reports.
How to easily run item analysis (question-level analysis) in a matter of seconds.
How to view performance data related to Standards
How to view your student's performance data: both at a high-level and at a detailed level.
How to interpret data and export results.
Where do I go to create a data report?
Once logged in, click on the Classes tab at the top of the page.
Click on a classroom. Note: if you do not have an active classroom, you'll need to create one before you're able to view insights. If you need help creating a classroom, please see step two here.
Click on the 'Insights' sub-tab, as shown below:
Reports are automatically updated based on changes that you make to the filters.
Let's briefly explore these filters, which are located on the left-hand side of the page:
By clicking on this filter, you can select subject/guide level that you've added to your classroom.
The report displays usage data related to the subject you've selected.
Note: this filter is only relevant if you've added multiple subjects to your classroom.
If "Most recent" is selected, this filter will only return data from your students' most recent attempts.
For example: if a student has placed four attempts on a given question, and "Most recent" is selected, then their first three attempts would not be included in the report.
If option 1, 2, or 3 is selected: this filter scopes the report to either the first, second, or third attempt for a student.
For example: if 2 is selected, only the users' second attempt on a given question will be included.
By default, this filter is set to "custom" which automatically spans from the date the class was created to the current date.
However, Albert provides a few "quick options" for you to select from, by clicking on the "Date" filter.
For example: by selecting "last month", you'll only view data related to questions that were answered by your students in the past month.
By default, the start date will be the date that you created your class.
This filter can be changed by simply clicking on the Start Date filter, and inputting the desired start date.
By default, the end date will be today's date.
This filter can be changed by simply clicking on the End Date filter, and inputting the desired end date.
Now that we've covered filters, let's explore how you can actually leverage this data!
Let's start with an example of how the insights page looks:
Metrics (the section next to filters)
Mastery Levels Graph: The color-coded bars represent the proportion of students who fall into each mastery level category. For a refresher on mastery levels, please see this help article.
AVG ACCURACY: The percentage of questions answered correctly, scoped according to the filters you've selected.
AVG TIME SPENT: The average number of minutes that students spent on questions, scoped according to the filters you've selected.
QUESTIONS IN GUIDE LEVEL: The total number of questions that all students have answered, scoped according to the filters you've selected.
As we covered previously, you can always change/update the filters simply by clicking on them and selection a new option. Changes will be displayed automatically!
Response Matrix (Excel): Exporting Data
By clicking on this button (located below the Filters section on the left-hand side), you'll download a detailed excel file related to performance, which is scoped to the filters you've selected.
There are 3 ways to group detailed performance data: by Student, by Questions, and by Standard
This section is located at the bottom of the insights page, directly below the "Metrics" section.
By default, the "Students" tab is selected
Simply click on the "Questions" tab to view more complex question-level analysis.
To view how your students performed on individual standards, simply click on the "Standards" tab.
Within this section, you can use the search bar to retrieve data related to a specific set of students, questions, or standards (depending on which tab is selected). For example, in the image below, the results return any students with the name "Jane".
By clicking on the icon located directly to the right of the search bar, you can select from three performance-related filters, to customize the scope of these reports.
Exporting Data: By clicking on the ellipses and clicking "Download CSV", you can quickly export this detailed performance-related information to a CSV.
