For any quiz containing MCQs, this tool provides tables showing:
- Summary statistics for quiz results
- Answers given by each student to each MCQ
- Total number of students choosing each option in each MCQ
- Students yet to complete the quiz
This allows a teacher to quickly see which students are struggling, which questions are causing problems, and which distractors (options) are never being selected.
- To access the tool, click the quiz and select MCQ breakdown from Results (making sure to click the arrow icon and not the ‘Results’ text) in Quiz administration.
- You can then filter the results according to group and type of student. In the example below a group EC100.A:1 and Registered students have been selected. You can either view results in the screen format or select Print view on the right for a more compact printable version.
- Sample summary: provides an overview of results helping you to see at a glance how many have taken the quiz and how they have performed.
Options chosen: shows how each student has done on individual questions and overall. You can see which questions were challenging e.g. only 41% students got Question 4 right whereas 94% got Question 7 right.
- The Option counts: section shows a usage count for each answer option, enabling you to spot questions where certain options are never or rarely chosen. For example, Question 10, which many got wrong, shows a strong preference for incorrect option 1 with little use of other options. Questions 7 and 8 show a similar pattern with option 2. Since a principle of good MCQ design is that all options should be plausible, you may decide to rework such questions.
- The final section of the report contains a list those who have yet to complete.
