New: Understand your whole class at a glance with quiz analysis

Being able to see every answer from every student is useful, but sometimes you can’t see the wood for the trees – it’s just too much detail. For a long time, I have wanted to offer key-concept analysis of every assignment, but have stumbled on the problem of finding someone to group our 120,000+ questions into meaningful categories.

Finally, we have a solution. It’s called “crowdsourced analytics”, and I am delighted that we are launching it today. Here’s how it works…

  1. the first teacher to analyse a particular quiz enters their own analysis keywords, and groups the questions under them.
  2. every teacher who assigns that quiz to their own student has the choice of using the existing keywords, or adding their own.
  3. there is a hidden voting mechanism that will promote the most popular keywords so that over time a consensus of the most useful analysis terms will emerge.
