Quiz Statistics provide information on how students performed on a D2L Brightspace quiz and a detailed analysis of each question.  Quiz data can be exported to an excel or CSV file. Once students have completed a quiz in Brightspace, instructors can view and export the following statistics:

  • User Stats – Statistics for individual users.
  • Question Stats – Statistics for each quiz question.
  • Question Details – Detailed analysis of each question.
PLEASE NOTE:

  • Quiz statistics are not computed for questions in a Question Pool.
  • Statistics are calculated based on a user’s first quiz attempt. If a question is edited after attempts have been submitted, only the attempts on the newest version of the question will be included in the statistics.

Viewing Quiz Statistics

The Quiz Statistics page has three tabs: User Stats, Question Stats, Question Details. You can view and/or export user or question statistics from each of these tabs. See D2L’s View Quiz Statistics documentation for more information about quiz statistics in Brightspace.

Quiz Statistics Key Terms

Standard deviation (SD): How much variation there was in the scores for this question or a measure of the spread of scores about the mean and hence the extent to which the question might discriminate. If F is very high or very low it is impossible for the spread to be large. Note however that a good SD does not automatically ensure good discrimination.

Discrimination index: This is the correlation between the weighted scores on the question and those on the rest of the test. It indicates how effective the question is at sorting out able students from those who are less able (students who score highly on this question are the same students who score highly on the whole quiz).

Point Biserial: Point Biserial calculates any possible correlation between the question score and the total quiz score. It measures the strength of the correlation between the two values, and shows either a positive or a negative relationship ranging from -1.00-+1.00.
