Exporting quiz statistics

With the New BeachBoard you can export quiz statistics and reports to a CSV file for data analysis. The CSV file contains all pertinent information on the quiz so that you can query, sort and evaluate the data without being connected to the learning management system.

Export quiz statistics

  1. From the Manage Quizzes page, click the Statistics icon Statistics icon beside a quiz name.

Exporting User Stats for quizzes

User Stats CSV files contain performance data by user, including: the user’s Org Defined ID, username, first name, last name, quiz score, the value the quiz was graded out of, the user’s score as a percentage, and the class average.

Tip: Create a column to calculate the median score on the quiz to consider the class’s performance from a different perspective. Use the formula <=median(x1:x5)> to calculate the median.

Exporting Question Stats for quizzes

Question Stats CSV files contain data about the average score on questions by points and percentage.

The question title, text, bonus status, and difficulty level are included in the CSV file so that data can be analyzed without referring back to BeachBoard.

Tip: You can sort, query, hide and delete data to help your analysis and create charts or graphs to visually represent trends.

Exporting Question Details for quizzes

Question Details CSV files contain detailed information about each question in the quiz, including a list of all of the answers provided for each quiz attempt, how many users chose each possible answer, the total number of responses, and the average score on the question. Question Details reports can help you evaluate trends in answers and look for questions that were unclear or difficult for a number of users.

The question title, text, bonus status, and difficulty level are included in the CSV file so that data can be analyzed without referring back to BeachBoard.

Tip: Create a column that calculates the average score for all question attempts as a percentage by dividing the Average Score column by the Out Of column and multiplying by 100. Next, create a custom filter for the new Attempt Average column that displays only rows where the attempt average is less than 51%. This way you can quickly review questions that users struggled with and adjust grades or your lesson plans accordingly.
