On the Activity Analysis report, teachers can see how students responded to each prompt in an activity and get a clear analysis of the skills they demonstrated.
Table of Contents
How do I find the Activity Analysis report?
Click the My Reports tab and click on the Activity Analysis sub-tab.
How do I read the Activity Analysis?
The landing page of the Activity Analysis report displays all the activities that you have assigned your students. To the right of each activity's name, you can see how many students have completed the activity and the average score for the activity.
You can click the name of an activity to see more details about your students' performance on that activity.
How do I read the Student reports view in the Activity Analysis?
Clicking on the name of any activity brings you to the Student reports view of the Activity Analysis report. Here, you can see each student's score, how much time they spent in the activity, the number of prompts to which they responded, and the average score of all of the scored activities that they have completed on Quill.
Clicking on the student's name in the Student reports view shows you that student's responses to each prompt, the time that they spent on the activity, and their percentage score for that activity. For each prompt, you can see the directions the student saw, the prompt itself, the response that the student submitted, and the targeted feedback that they received.
When the student submits an incorrect response, you will see the writing skill that they incorrectly used highlighted in yellow beneath the targeted feedback that they received.
In the Target skill section for each prompt, you will see the target skill of the prompt highlighted in green, and when the student submits a completely correct response that correctly uses the target skill, you will see the targeted skill highlighted in green beneath the correct response.
To toggle between seeing the Student reports view for different students, click the dropdown menu in the upper right corner of the page and select different students' names.
How do I read the Questions reports view in the Activity Analysis?
Click on the Questions reports tab to see the average score for each prompt in an activity for a class.
Each row will be shaded a different color, and the color reflects the average score for a prompt in an activity for a class.
Green means that the class frequently demonstrated the target skill of that prompt and had an average score of 83-100% for that prompt.
Yellow means that the class sometimes demonstrated the target skill of that prompt and had an average score of 32-82% for that prompt.
Red means that the class rarely demonstrated the target skill of that prompt and had an average score of 0-31% for that prompt.
How do I use the Activity Analysis to inform my writing instruction?
The Activity Analysis report allows you to dig more deeply into students’ performances in their activities and shows exactly how a student responded to each prompt. For each prompt, you’ll see every response that the student submitted, the feedback Quill provided each time, and when the student correctly used the target skill of a prompt.
This report can illuminate where a particular struggle might be stemming from, whether it be from the concept itself, maybe a mechanical struggle, or interpreting the feedback to make corrections.
