Item Analysis - New Teacher Dashboard

The Item Analysis report helps teachers determine which items or concepts were mastered, and which should be revisited, as well as help identify small groups of students with common needs and close the gaps in your class. It shows a bar graph for each question on a test and the percentage of students that answered correctly, incorrectly or have not yet been tested. School and District Admins have the option to filter this report by grade level*. Step-by-step instructions can be found below the video:
