LearnUCS Quick Hit: Item Analysis - Tests

A little know feature that was added during our upgrade is the "Item Analysis" tool.

Item analysis provides statistics on overall test performance and individual test questions. This data helps you recognise questions that might be poor indicators of student performance. You can use this information to improve questions for future tests or to adjust credit on current attempts.

The video below shows how to use this very straightforward but powerful feature:

New students in the School of Arts and Humanities take a quick test after having a health and safety briefing.  This year the test has been created in LearnUCS and the students have started taking the test, below are some screen shots showing the results of the Item Analysis in the test.

The image below shows the quick break down of the test, giving a summary to date.

The image below shows the more detailed information of all questions.  You can see the question at the bottom students have had more problems answering correctly than the others.  From this screen you can click on the question to check that the answer is setup correctly, or to decide if it needs amending.  If you were to make a change you can have the question auto-marked again to correct the scores. 

This tool offers a powerful feature for those that are already using the Test/Quiz engine or a new incentive for those thinking of using it.

As always please email if you would like to discuss your use of LearnUCS.
