Using the Item Analysis Report to target your instruction

While most instructors use the assignment results report in Connect to track student results, there are several other reporting options that often go overlooked but provide easy access to valuable information about your students’ learning.
Connect Report Options List

For example, let’s take a look at the following item analysis report.
The Connect item analysis report can be used to identify the success rate of individual questions in your assignments. This information can be useful in areas such as planning lecture topics and/or assessment review, helping make your time with students more targeted to their needs.
Sample Item Analysis Report

In the example above, we see the success rate for six questions in our assignment across multiple assignment attempts (i.e., first attempt vs. last attempt). After reviewing the report, we might decide that the success rate for the question on the “path of blood” is too low and is an area worth extra investigation. Connect offers a quick export of this information to Excel or allows you to print out a record for further analysis.

Remember that all of this information and more, is only a few clicks away in the Reports tab, to help enhance your Connect experience.
