Running a Report for Assessments

There are two types of reports that can be generated to show the results of assessments created within the LMS: Assessment Responses and Assessment Response Questions.


Go to the Report list

  • Click Reports in the left navigation area.


Part 1: Run a new Assessment Responses Report

  • Click the New Report button in the top right corner of the page.
  • Select Assessment Responses as the report type.
  • Give the report a title in the Name field.
  • Click the Create button.

Select the Filter Criteria

An Assessment Responses report generates high-level information concerning assessment responses, e.g: response status, response score, and response time. This type of report will allow you to view general information concerning assessment results. To do this, you could set up your Filter Criteria and Report Columns as seen above.

Filter criteria is WHAT information you want to see and the report columns are HOW you want to see it. You access the filter criteria by clicking the Edit Query button, and editing, adding or deleting columns to the report.

So, in this case, we are telling the reporting tool that we want to see all the assessment responses (report type) for the last 60 days. We are telling the reporting tool how to display this data by specifying to show the user's full name, the assessment name, when the assessment was completed, the enrollment status and when the enrollment was created as report columns.

Preview the Assessment Responses report

  • The report will automatically preview the top 100 results in the window at the bottom of the page.
  • Click the Save button at the top of the page to save all of the results.


Part 2: Run a new Assessment Response Questions Report

Return to Reports list

  • Click Reports.
  • Click the New Report button.
  • Select Assessment Response Questions as the report type.
  • Give the report a title in the Name field.
  • Click the Create button.

Set up report parameters

An Assessment Response Questions Report will generate detailed information, showing information for specific questions on an assessment. You may want to be able to see the average score per question in comparison with the highest possible number of points. Sorting the data in this way will indicate which questions your students are missing frequently.

This will allow you to potentially improve the content from which the most missed questions are drawn or modify the questions as they may be written in a way that is confusing to some users. To generate this data, you could set up your Filter Criteria, Group This column and Edit Columns as seen above.

This set of criteria will generate a report that looks like this:

  • You can save the updated report by clicking the Save button (and entering a new name if you wish).
