Displaying Student Statistics

The Student Statistics, the bottom group of items in the dialog box that appears when View > Statistics is selected, offers a choice of statistics to help you measure a student’s relative performance. Because this data appears in each test column to the right of the student’s actual test score, you can select only one of these statistics to appear at a given time.

Percent

If you select the student statistic Percent, GradeQuick will list the percent correct next to each test score. For example, if you select Percent, the 48 number in the test column represents the score on the test. The number 96 represents the percent correct on the test. This is especially useful on tests with scores that do not have 100 possible points because it instantly gives you a percent score for each student on that test: you can write that on the graded exam you return, without having to calculate it yourself.

Rank

If you select the student statistic Rank, the numbers 84 12 might appear in a student’s test column. This would mean that the student scored 84 points on that test, and ranked 12th in the class on that test. Another column, to the far right, next to final Avg, would also appear with the student’s overall class rank, based on his or her final average.

Percentile

If you select Percentile, the numbers 84 36 might appear in a student’s test column. This would mean that the student scored 84 on the exam and that 36% of the students scored below this student on that test. If the number 70 appeared to the right of 88.83 in the Avg column, this would mean that 70% of the students had final averages below 88.83%. The highest percentile possible is the 99th percentile; the lowest is 0.

Quartile

If you select Quartile, the numbers 84 1 might appear in a student,s test column. This would mean that one-quarter of the class scored below this student on that test. The highest class quartile possible is 3; the lowest is 0.

Deviations from Mean

If you select Standard Deviation, the numbers 89 0.4 might appear in a student’s test column. This would mean that the student’s score of 89 points on that test was 0.4 standard deviations from the mean.

Normalized

If you want to see a Normalized score next to the raw score, select this statistic. GradeQuick uses the default mean of 75 with a standard deviation of 10 to compute the normalized score. You may design your own normalized score by entering your own mean and standard deviation if you choose Averaging Methodin Grading > Grading Preferences. You can also use this normalized score, instead of the raw score as the basis for final grade assignment.
