Using Attempt Statistics and Download Results in Grade Center

Curious about which questions students missed most often on a blackboard assessment? Or the answers a specific student made for each question on a test? Well blackboard can provide answers to these inquiries by using the Attempt Statistics and Download Results from the drop down menu on the columns found in the Grade Center. These tools are helpful by allowing instructors to see which questions students had more difficulty with, leading to either rewriting the question for future examinations or perhaps not counting it towards the end grade for the assignment.

Instructions to use Attempts Statistics:

1.) Enter the course you wish to work in, with the Edit Mode ON.
2.) Go to the Full Grade Center from the Control Panel.
3.) Navigate to the grade column for the assessment you wish to view.
4.) Click the drop-down menu for the grade column, and select Attempt Statistics.

5.) On the new page, a breakdown of each question with statistics will be displayed.

6.) Click OK to return to the Grade Center.

Instructions to use Download Results:

5.) In the Download Results page, select the delimiter type (either comma or tab) in order for it to be viewable in Excel or a similar program. You may also select how the information will be displayed, by user, or by question and user; valid or all attempts.

6.) When done with the settings, select the button labeled Click to Download Results.
7.) In the pop-up window, select Save File.
8.) The title of the file will be "title of assessment.download.xls". Open the file.
