What student progress data is available on Checkology?

Checkology is designed to offer you a variety of data about student progress so you can pick and choose what to incorporate into your own evaluation system. This article goes over the following types of data and where you can locate each in your educator account:

  • # correct
  • # of points
  • Duration
  • Status
  • Submission timestamps
  • Pre/post survey results

(Watch the video to understand points or read the article below to learn more about different types of data.)


Types of student progress data:

# correct

This number displays how many assessments the student got correct out of the total number of auto-graded assessments in the assignment. For example, "12/14" would mean a student answered 12 auto-graded assessments correctly out of 14 total auto-graded assessments in an assignment. Auto-graded assessments include yes/no, multiple choice, and matching questions.

 Please note: the # correct does not include teacher-evaluable assessments.

To learn more about teacher-evaluable assessments, visit the evaluating student work article.

# of points

This number displays how many points the student earned out of the total number of points a student can earn completing an assignment. Students are awarded points for successfully answering assessment questions as they navigate through lessons, challenges, exercises, and missions in their assigned course. The number of points a student can earn depends in part on the type of assessment question they are answering.

How are points calculated?

How do students earn points?

Different types of assessment questions are associated with different levels of points:

  • Quick, auto-graded assessments (such as multiple choice or matching questions) = students can earn up to 10 points
  • Short answer written response questions = up to 25 points
  • Full answer written response questions = up to 50 points
  • Student uploads = up to 100 points

Students can also receive points for activity on their class Discuss Wall. By posting on a class discuss wall, a student can earn 10 points. Some assessments in lessons are teacher evaluable (such as written response questions), meaning you can grade them by giving students full, half, or no credit for their answers. The level of credit a student earns impacts the amount of points they receive for that assessment question.

How do I know how many points a student can earn?

When viewing your course, you can see the cumulative total of the number of points a student can earn by successfully completing each lesson, challenge, exercise, or mission. For example, the "What is News?" lesson is worth 240 points because it contains 4 quick assessments (worth 10 points each) and 8 short answer assessments (worth 25 points each).

You can also see how many points your course is worth cumulatively by clicking on "Manage" next to "Students" and then finding the column entitled "Points" on the student management screen. Here you will see how many points a student has earned in their assigned course out of how many total points the course is worth.

Status

This icon indicates whether a student's assignment is "Complete," "In Review" (ready for your evaluation), or not started yet.

  • Complete = The green check icon   means the assignment has been submitted and that you have either completed grading or there are no teacher-evaluable assessments for you to evaluate.
  • In Review = The orange dots icon   means the assignment has been submitted by the student but it still has assessments that need to be evaluated by you.
  • Not started yet = The status box will be empty to indicate either that the student has not yet begun the assignment or has begun, but not yet submitted the assignment.

Pre/post survey results

The pre- and post-platform assessment helps you assess students’ prior knowledge and measure concrete learning gains for many Checkology assignments. If your pre/post assessment setting is on, you will be able to view students' prior knowledge and learning gains using the "Pre/Post Assessment" tab. In this area, you can use the three buttons at the top of the screen to toggle between three different views of pre-/post-assessment results data:

  • Pre-Assessment: Only pre-assessment responses from students.
  • Post-Assessment: Only post-assessments responses from students.
  • Matched Data: A matched view that compares pre- and post-assessment responses to show growth.
How do I access pre/post survey results?

Click the "More" tab in the top navigation menu and, then, select "Pre/Post Assessment" from the dropdown menu.
