The Rubric Report
The Rubric report allows an administrator to select rubrics and view the associated assessment data. By default, the report will show all assessment data for the rubric. However, reports can be customized by selecting filtering values to refine the displayed data.
Building a Rubric report query
A Rubric report query is built by choosing a rubric on which to report and giving the query a name. Optionally, data filters can be added to refine the reported data.
To build a simple Rubric report query:
- From the Reports page, click the Create New Report button and select Rubric Report.
- On the Select Report Criteria page, click inside the Rubric field, and select a rubric from the drop down list.
NOTE: Only rubrics that have been assessed and submitted will appear in the rubric list.
- In the Query name field, type in a name for the query.
- Click the RUN button to display the data for the selected rubric
To add optional data filters to a report:
- After choosing a rubric, click the Add Filter button to expand the filters menu.
- Select a filter by clicking the plus (+) icon next to the filter name.
- After selecting a filter, click on the filter’s text field, and select the value that should be included in the report from the drop down menu.
- Click the RUN button.
To remove a filter from a report:
- Hover over the filter field, and click the trash can icon that appears.
- Confirm by clicking the Delete button.
The Rubric Report screen
The Rubric report lists all elements of the selected rubric, displays the percentage and number of times each performance level was scored for each rubric element, and calculates the mean score and standard deviation for each rubric element.
The top half of the report displays scores using colored bars, with each color representing a performance level. The bottom half of the report displays the same scoring information, but in a table format.
By default, the report displays all elements and performance levels. However, the drop down menus near the top of the report can be used to select and view specific elements or performance levels, or elements associated with specific standards.
TIP: Associated standards are indicated in the table view with a S:1, S:2, etc. icon next to an element name. Click the icon to view the associated standard.
TIP: Clicking on a number in the grid will display a list of the students that were assessed at that performance level, the student’s assessor, and the timestamp of the assessment. From this list, clicking on a specific assessment will open the student’s assessed submission.
Total Rubric Score
Below the Rubric Results by Element, you will also find the Total Rubric Score. This table displays the total number of assessments that have been completed with the rubric, as well as the mean and standard deviation.
NOTE: If N/A was selected in one or more elements in a rubric assessment, that assessment will not be included in the total rubric score calculations
Adding additional queries
Once a query has been built and run, additional queries can be built to appear on the same report screen, “side-by-side.” This is very useful for comparing assessments among different sections of people. For example, one query may be the rubric scoring for the current semester, and the second query is the scoring for the previous semester. Or one query may be female students, while another query is male students. The scores from the two queries can easily be compared in one report.
To add a query to an existing report:
- Create a query and run the report.
- On the report screen, click the Add Query button.
- Build the query, just like any other query.
- Click the RUN button.
The report will now display both queries on the report screen. By default, the rubric scoring data will be sorted by element. To sort the data by query name, click the Section By drop down menu, and select Query.
TIP: The visibility of each query can be turned on or off by clicking the checkbox next to the query name.
Copying, Editing, and Deleting Queries
Queries that have been added to a report can be copied, edited, or deleted from the report. To manage a query, hover over a query and select:
- pencil icon – edit the existing query
- paper icon – copy the query and, optionally, edit the query
- trash can icon – delete the query from the report
Saving and Exporting Reports
Reports can be retained for later use. There are two methods for doing so: saving and exporting.
Once a report is generated, it can be saved for later use. Saving a report does not save the data in the report. Rather, saving a report saves the parameters that were set when building the report. A saved report can be re-run at any time, and the report will be updated with current data.
To save a report:
1. Build and run a report.
2. Click the Save Report button.
Once a report is generated, it can be exported to a CSV or PDF file.
To Export a report:
1. Build and run a report.
2. Click the Export to PDF or Export to CSV button.
