Event Date & Time

  • December 9, 2020
    1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Event Description

Have you used Quizzes on Canvas to assess your students’ learning? How well did the questions help you gather evidence of learning? Are you concerned the questions may be too hard or too easy?

This workshop provides an introduction to Canvas Quiz Statistics, a learning analytics tool that provides instructors with useful data and visualizations, including an overview of students’ highest and lowest quiz scores, the average amount of time spent in a quiz, the distribution of student responses, and other data to let you know which questions worked and which did not.

Come and explore these features with us. By the end of the workshop, we hope you will be able to:
* Locate Canvas Quiz statistics
* Interpret quiz statistics data
* Begin to reflect on and refine your quiz questions
