How to Create and View a Quiz Report

The purpose of this article is to explain how to analyze the results of a quiz given in the Brightspace learning environment. More information on viewing quiz statistics can be found here.

Overview of Quiz Reports

You can view and export quiz reports to a CSV or Microsoft Excel file for data analysis. The file contains all applicable information from the quiz so that you can query, sort, and evaluate the data without being connected to the learning management system. You must set up quiz reports in the Reports Setup tab for the appropriate quiz before you can view or export reports.

All statistics are calculated based on a user’s first attempt of the quiz. If a question is changed after attempts have occurred, then only the attempts on the newest version of the question are included in the statistical calculations.

Average grade is calculated only for first attempts of the quiz.

For all reports, you can set a release date and select roles to release the report to.
