How do I add analysis tags to an assessment?

Analysis tags allow for remedial content to be suggested to students after their assessment is completed. This recommended material will focus on the learning areas that the student struggled with during the assessment.

 

Assessments made by the Education Perfect team, for example Proficiency tests, generally have analysis tags and recommended remedial content automatically. You can add your own tags and recommended content when building a custom assessment for your students.

Open the Content Library. 

Make sure you have Edit mode selected. 

Navigate to the assessment you wish to add analysis tags to and click the Edit button on the righthand side.

Analysis tags can only be added to exam type content. To check the type of content, select the material and look on the righthand side of the screen for the Type section. There are three different content types - List, Smart Lesson and Exam.

Go to the Analysis tab. 

To create new analysis groups, click the Add button on the lefthand side.

Analysis groups break up the different skill areas covered in an assessment. You are able to set different recommended material for each different analysis group, allowing you to provide recommendations based on the specific skills each part of the assessment focuses on.

Name the analysis group and give it an appropriate description. Click Add Smart Lesson to select the recommended lessons appropriate for the analysis group you've created.

Note: You will only be able to select recommended material within the same module as your assessment. If the material is elsewhere, you'll need to move it to the correct module.

Once you've selected the appropriate lessons, click the Import button to add them as recommendations for this analysis group. 

Now that the recommendations are selected, you are able to set their Trigger Range on the righthand side. This determines at which performance thresholds the recommendations are made. The default is 0-70%, which means that if a student scores below 70% on any sections of the assessment this analysis group applies to, the recommendation will be made. Another way to use this function is as an extension activity. For example, you could create Extra for Experts content which is assigned to students who scored very highly in a skill.

To tag areas of the assessment with a specific skill, go to the Exam tab.

Select a section of the assessment, which are displayed as folders under Exam Structure on the lefthand side.

Tick the relevant tags in the Analysis Tags window on the right hand side. Once you are finished, click Save Changes.
