Additional Grade Details - quartiles, median, etc

Jump to solution

The course coordinator for one of our high-enrollment programs would like to have more descriptive data about assignment grades.  In particular, she is looking for median and quartile information.  I have been scouring the New Analytics group and the community as a whole for any insight into whether there is a plan to include these grade details, either in the new Analytics tool or directly in the Gradebook columns.

What are the future plans for these kinds of things?

Hi, Valerie,

Our team currently has median, high, and low scores per assignment grade in development. So watch for it coming soon!

Yes! Our faculty would like this type of information as well. I think many have become accustomed to Median since it was the only value available in the current (old?) analytics. I know they will greatly appreciate having the average/mean readily available, but I can see them wanting both. They would love quartile and standard deviation information as well.

As a student, I would also find it very helpful to know the median grade on an assignment. I currently see min, mean, and max per assignment. Having median instead of, or in addition to, the mean would be very useful, particularly when there is a large range between min and max.

I would love to have the option of having the Gradebook show the median, standard deviation, maximum, and minimum scores.  I don't want to have to export my grades data to Excel to get this information, and it is annoying to have to click click click to get this sort of data (but not medians, I note) via editing the exam in question.

Also, in the interest of transparency, it would be excellent if I could have these data revealed to the class as well.

This was in development in 2019?  Will it ever come out?  Or is it hidden somewhere inconvenent?
