How to capture details in assessment scoring
Sep 11, 2011
I am in desperate need of assistance.... I have a requirement to create a whole bunch of assessments to benchmark user knowledge.
Each assessment is divided into 5 knowledge categories, with the learner being presented with a randomised selection of questions from each category each time they access it. This part is easy!
What I then need to be able to do it analyse the results to see which category (if any) each learner hasn’t passed. This is where it gets more complicated…
I upload the assessments to our LMS, however it’s not capable of providing me with detailed information – it only presents the number of times the learner has accessed the assessment, and what their last and highest score is. Through the LMS, I have no way of knowing which questions were even presented to the learner, let alone which categories they may have got some questions wrong in.
My clunky workaround is to use the Print Results button at the end of the assessment, and tell learners multiple times (including on the first and last windows of the assessment) that they MUST print results and give to their manager if they don’t pass, and then pass it to me to analyse. Trouble is, this isn’t working – learners are forgetting.
I’ve also tried the Email Results button, but this seems to take ages to do from the learner’s point of view, and the information captured in the email doesn’t contain everything I want, unlike the Print Results output.
All I can think of, short of buying a new LMS, is to see whether I can make the Print Results button mandatory. Is this possible? Or, are there any brilliant ideas out there that I’ve not considered?
