Viewing Student Results

As an instructor, you can view student grades for all assignments as well as view in-depth student and class-wide performance reports for individual assignments.

Viewing Student Results For All Assignments

The Student Results Table and the Activity List Page both give an overview of how students are doing on all assignments within your student set(s). Specifically, the table on the Activity List Page displays your class’s average grade for each available assignment as well as the average time spent on each assignment. The Student Results Table breaks this down further, giving you a report of each student’s grade for, and average time spent on, each assignment.

Student Results Table

You can view results for all activities, broken down by student, by clicking on the “Student Results” button in the top right-hand corner of the Activity List Page.

Once you click on this button, you will be taken to the Student Results table, which displays the grades for all students for all submitted assignments within a particular student set.

By default, the Student Results table will display results for the Student Set you selected on the Activity List Page. However, you may see the results for other Student Sets on this page by selecting the Student Set you would like to see from the “Show Results for” dropdown menu.


In the Student Results page, you can see a breakdown of all the students’ grades for each assignment, as well as a breakdown of how much time students spent on an assignment.

Viewing Individual Student Grades

To see student Grades for each assignment, click on the word Grades in the upper right-hand corner of the Student Results table.

This will display a table with the students’ names and email addresses, the students’ average grades on all Smartwork5 assignments, and the students’ grades for each assignment. This table will display any assignment where at least one student has attempted a question.

Important Note: Once you set a Grades Accepted Until date for one assignment, the system will only calculate assignments with Grades Accepted Until dates when averaging students’ final grades for the course. This means that once you set a Grades Accepted Until date for one assignment, all assignments without Grades Accepted Until dates will not be calculated into students’ overall Smartwork5 averages.

The grades are shaded in a spectrum of red according to a how low or high they are, with grades of 100% displayed in white. The closer a grade is to 0%, the darker it will be; the closer the grade is to 100%, the lighter it will be. This is done to help instructors quickly identify students who may have struggled on an assignment.

If a student did not complete an assignment, the grade will be blank in the table.

You can filter your results via the search bar. You may filter by student name or student email.

You can export the data in this table to a .csv file by clicking on the “Export Report Data” button in the top right of the Student Results Page.

 

Viewing Time Spent in an Activity

To see the Time student spends in each activity, click on “Time Spent” in the upper right corner of the Student Results page.

You can filter your results by entering a student’s name or email address into the search bar.

Activity List Page

The course Activity List Page shows an average of all student results by assignment. To see this, select the student set for which you would like to see data in the student set drop-down menu.

Once you select the Student Set, you will see that the assignments with assigned Grades Accepted Until dates will automatically filter to the top of the Activity List Page.

The Activity List displays an aggregate of student results in the following categories:

  • Submitted grades – this is a count of the number of students who successfully recorded their grades for the assignment. This count does not include students who started the activity and did not record their grades.
  • Average Time Spent – this is an average of the amount of time students spent in the assignment.
  • Average Grade – this is the average of the grades students earned on the assignment.

For each assignment with recorded grades, you can access in-depth performance reports for that activity by clicking on the “Report” button. We will discuss this further in the next section.

Exporting Data in the Activity List

To export the Activity List data to a .csv file, click on the “Export Report Data” button in the right hand corner, above the Activity Table.

Viewing In-Depth Performance Reports For Each Assignment

You can view student results on an assignment level in the Assignment Page, or by going to the Class Activity Report for a particular assignment.

Assignment Home Page
