How do I view reports for an assessment in New Quizzes?

You can view reports for an assessment created in New Quizzes. The reports available in New Quizzes are the Quiz and Item Analysis and the Outcomes Analysis. The Quiz and Item Analysis report includes statistics for the entire assessment and individual items. The Outcomes Analysis report includes outcome mastery statistics for all students who took the assessment.


  • It may take up to 24 hours for assessment information to display in New Quizzes reports.
  • Outcomes associated with questions from item banks do not display in the Outcomes Analysis report.
  • If you edit an assessment after students have already attempted the assessment, the Outcomes Analysis report will not include results previous to edits being made.

  • Cronbach’s Alpha [6]: measures internal consistency of how closely related a set of items are as a group

View Item Analysis

In the Item Analysis section, you can view statistics for specific questions in an assessment. The following item analysis statistics are available:

  • Difficulty Index [1]: shows how hard it is to answer the question correctly. Calculated by dividing the number of correct answers by the number of times the item was included in the assessment.
  • Discrimination Index [2]: measures how well a question can tell the difference between students who do well on the exam and those who do not. Calculated by subtracting the bottom 27% of difficulty index scores from the top 27% of difficulty index scores.
  • RPB (Point-Biserial Correlation Coefficient) [3]: measures the correlation between a given item and the total score.
  • Mean Earned Score [4]: displays average point score.
