After posting and grading a Performance Assessment, you can use the Summary Report to review the performance for each exam-taker and each category. If a rubric was used, you'll also see statistics for each dimension of the Rubric.

Before You Begin

To ensure that the report is complete, wait until all assessments have been submitted and graded.

Note: You can generate the report at any time, but if assessments are still being submitted and/or graded, the data will be incomplete.



  1. Select the Assessments menu.
  2. Select the performance assessment that you want to review.
  3. Select the Reporting/Scoring tab, and then select Summary Report.


  4. Select the categories to include.
    • Select Categories: Use this button if you want to see a list of categories and select them one by one. The list will include all categories that you have permissions for and that were used on this assessment.
    • Use Top 25: Use this button if you want to include the top 25 most-used categories in the assessment.


Report Details

The Summary Report will appear in a PDF Viewer window.
  • Assessment Performance: This section shows you the overall outcomes of this assessment.


    • Average, Low, and High scores
    • Total Student Performance Histogram: This bar chart shows the number of exam-takers who scored in each percentage range. 
  • Learning Outcomes (Category Performance): In this section, each selected category is represented by a number line with indicators for the Low, Average, and High score. If a rubric was used, you'll also see the total number of dimensions that were tagged with each category. (Some dimensions might have been tagged with multiple categories.)

    Note: If no categories were assigned, then no data appears in this section.
