The Student responses report provides an overview of individual students' skill proficiencies and responses on a Quill Diagnostic.

Updated over a week ago

The Student responses report provides a student's Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) data and shows a student's percentage score and the number of skills for which that student is proficient for a Baseline Diagnostic (Pre) that a student completed, an overview of a student's specific answers to the questions on the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre), and whether or not they correctly used the relevant writing skill when responding to each prompt in the Baseline Diagnostic (Pre).

Understanding the Student responses report

When you click on the Student responses tab, you will see a table displaying both the number and percentage of questions that each student correctly answered when completing the Quill Diagnostic. Furthermore, you will see the number of skills for which each student was proficient out of all of the skills assessed in the Quill Diagnostic.

This table in the Student responses report is the only report where you can see the number and percentage of questions that a student answered correctly when completing a Quill Diagnostic. In all other reports and in the student's dashboard, the Quill Diagnostic will only be marked as Completed.

Clicking the View button for any student in the Student responses report will lead you to a page with each of the responses that that student submitted for each of the questions in the Quill Diagnostic.

On an individual student's Student responses report, you will see the student's answer for each question in the Quill Diagnostic and whether or not the student used the skill addressed in the question correctly.
