Many thanks to Olivia Oldham a 6th grade teacher at Riverton Elementary for the great feedback. Student’s in Olivia’s class are bringing their iPod Touch’s to school for their formative assessments. Here is feedback in an email we just received.
“I LOVE my students using their ipods! They think it’s fun and I don’t have to do any grading! I just analyze what questions they missed so it can guide my reteach. One of the things I’ve been thinking a lot about is the Item analysis button. I like seeing what percentage of my class missed a question because that allows me to see which questions were frequently missed. However, It would be helpful for me to see it more of number of students instead of a percent. What I do for my reteach is call the students that miss a particular question back to a small group. It would be helpful to have a list of student names who missed the question appear under the graph.”
Great thoughts on the Item Analysis feature that we plan to incorporate into MasteryConnect!
