Getting insights into student performance in Peergrade

We recently launched our new summary page on Peergrade! 🎉 The new summary page looks at student activity on a class level giving you an oversight of who has submitted, who forgot to give feedback and how students have progressed throughout the course. Let’s take a look at just a few of the ways the summary page can be put into action!

Using the summary page

The summary page can be filled with as much or as little data as you need, you’ll find it on your class overview page in the top header. Using the ‘Toggle Column’ button, will allow you to select which data points you want displayed. After exploring the Toggle Column button, you can view endless combinations of student data.

Exporting insights

The new summary page makes it easy to customize export of data from your classes. Choose the data points you’d like exported from the Toggle Columns button. Once the correct data is displayed in the chart below select ‘Export, you’ll choose which file type you’d like and then your export will download automatically!

Monitoring student progress

View student progress across assignments by comparing completion of submissions, reviews or by taking a look at scores.

The Introduction to Entrepreneurship class required students identify a problem and create a business proposal that would solve the problem. I wanted to get an idea if students were incorporating their feedback and improving their business ideas and submission from one assignment to the next. On the Summary page, I’ve set the columns to only show the submission score for the completed assignments. I can now see student submission scores from their first and second submission. I can see that the majority of students are on par or improving from one assignment to the next. Here’s a screenshot of what it looks like:
