This export allows you to view how each District Created Item performed on a particular District Custom Assessment. Use the results to help identify unfair or biased items, reveal item difficulty, and determine if the item is capable of accurately measuring student performance on a particular concept. This information can then be used to refine and improve the test items.
Note: Only users that are members of the Creator and/or Approver permission groups will have access to view the distractor numbers and the corresponding answer choice via the main Editor page in the user drop-down menu.

What to Look For
As you read the data, notice the following:
View the number of student responses for an item compared to the number students that correctly answered the item. Did the majority of the students get the question right or wrong? Was the item too easy or too difficult?
If a large number of students answered an item incorrectly, is there a particular distractor that was selected most often? Use this information to potentially identify a common misconception among students for the concept it is assessing.
View the number of students that answered each distractor. Are there any that were not selected by any students? Consider adjusting your distractor.
