Four quiz reports are available in FLO:

  • Grades reportshows all the students' quiz attempts, the overall grade, and the grade for each question. There are links to review all the details of a student's attempt, just as the student would see it (student view)
    • Useful for tracking student progress, identifying students at risk, identifying problem questions (either difficult or badly designed) or easy/difficult questions (by time taken)
  • Responses report: similar to the Grades report, except that it shows the responses the students gave, rather than the marks they earned. It is also possible to show the question text or the right answer, to compare with the student's response. This is helpful when the question is randomised
    • Useful for identifying student misunderstandings (individual and common), gaps in their knowledge
  • Statistics report: gives a statistical (psychometric) analysis of the quiz, and the questions within it. The front page gives a summary of the whole quiz. Links drill down to a detailed analysis of specific questions
    • Useful for analysing individual questions and question behaviours (e.g. random guess score) but you will need to understand statistical terminology
  • Manual grading reportallows the teacher to manually grade questions in the quiz 
    • Useful for online marking of essay questions (more a marking facility than a report) – these can't be automated like other formats for questions (eg multiple choice). You can also mark short answer questions if required

Generating and interpreting these reports can help you refine your quiz and question bank for the next cohort/overtime.

The Grades report tells you about student quiz attempts, displaying the overall grade, and a summary of each correct/incorrect answer. It also reports on the State (student progress through a quiz), the time the quiz was started/completed and the total time the student took to complete it. You can re-grade quiz attempts by selecting Re-grade selected attempts. A bar graph summarises the grade range and frequency.

responses report data


The Statistics report provides a statistical ('psychometric') analysis of the quiz and the questions. The report has three sections:

  • an analysis showing all questions in table format
  • a bar graph of the percentage of correct answers (the 'Facility index') and the 'discriminative efficiency index'.
