How do I export a spreadsheet with assessment scores and student responses?

Tests & Quizzes offers two export options to download student responses, scores, and other details about an assessment as an Excel spreadsheet:

  • Classic Export: A basic text-only spreadsheet that contains the students' total scores for an assessment, their answers to questions, and comments you entered for the students while grading.
  • Formatted Export: A spreadsheet with multiple tabs that contain detailed information about the assessment and submissions. You can deselect various options to include less information and make the spreadsheet easier for you to read or analyze with your own software.

For information on entering assessment grades and comments, see How do I grade Tests & Quizzes?

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

Select the Published Copies tab.

Select the Published Copies tab to view the assessments that have been released to students in your site.

Go to the assessment submissions.

Select Scores from the Action drop-down menu for the assessment.

Alternatively, you may select the number of student submissions in the Submitted column to view the submissions.

Select the Export tab.

Select your export options.

Classic Export

To download a basic text-only spreadsheet, select the Export button for Classic Export.

Depending on your browser settings, you may be asked to save or open the file.  Once downloaded, you can open the file in a spreadsheet program, such as Excel. Skip to the step describing the classic export spreadsheet.

Formatted Export

By default, the Formatted Export spreadsheet includes four tabs (Overview, Student Responses, Question Details, and Item Analysis) with eight Export Options that you may uncheck to exclude unneeded information from the export:

  1. Info Block: A blue box that appears at the top of each of the spreadsheet's four tabs, displaying the assessment's title, ID, creator, creation time, UVACollab site from which it is being exported, and total point value.
  2. Overview: The first tab in the spreadsheet, which displays a table of Overall Results with the following details:
    • Each student's last name, first name, and user name (UVA computing ID or non-UVA email address).
    • Submission Order - If a student made more than one submission or completed a retake, multiple submissions for the same student are listed with the order in which they were completed.
    • Each student's total score.
    • When each student started the assessment (Start Time), when the assessment was submitted (End Time), and how much time the student spent on the assessment (Time Taken).
    • Correct Autoscored Responses - How many automatically-graded questions each student answered correctly. True false, multiple choice, matching, fill in the blank, numeric response, and calculated questions are automatically graded.
    • Assessment Comment - Any comments you entered for students on the Total Scores screen.
  3. Student Responses: The second tab in the spreadsheet, which displays the students' answers to the questions. By default, if the assessment has multiple parts, each part of the assessment has its own table of results. The tables include the following information:
    • Each student's last name, first name, and user name (UVA computing ID or non-UVA email address).
    • Each student's part score.
    • The students' responses to each question.
    • Correctness - For automatically-graded questions, whether the answer was correct or incorrect.
    • The student's score for each question.
    • Comments you entered for students while grading individual questions.
  4. Question Details: The third tab in the spreadsheet, which displays the question type, instructions and answer options for each question, as well as a Question Correlation (export option 8 described below).
  5. Item Analysis: The fourth tab in the spreadsheet, which displays the same information as the Item Analysis tab found in the Scores screens. For details, see How do I view statistics about a completed assessment?
  6. Separate Parts: If the assessment has multiple parts, uncheck this option to combine the tables for each part found in the Student Responses tab of the spreadsheet into a single table. Note: It is recommended that screen reader users uncheck this option to access the preview.
  7. Show Comments: Uncheck this option to remove the Assessment Comment column from the Overall Results table in the Overview tab, and the Comments columns from the tables in the Student Responses tab.
  8. Question Correlation: A random ID number assigned to each question. When the same question has been used in multiple assessments, you can use its correlation number to identify it and compare student results across assessments and UVACollab sites.  The Question Correlation option is only available when the Question Details tab is included in the export.

Note: When Anonymous Grading is enabled in the assessment settings:

  • A random submission ID number will display instead of the student's name and ID for each submission
  • The Submission Order column will not be included in the Overall Results table.

Preview formatted export. (Optional)

The Export Preview is a display of the formatted export spreadsheet embedded directly on the page.  As you uncheck and check the boxes for the Formatted Export Options, the Export Preview will update automatically to reflect the changes.

To navigate the preview with a keyboard:

  1. Use the Tab key to enter the preview.  If this is your first time accessing the preview, you will be placed on the first spreadsheet tab that you have included in your export options.  If all Export Options are enabled, you will land on the Overview tab.
  2. While a spreadsheet tab is selected, you may use the left and right arrow keys to switch from one tab to another. The available tabs (Overview, Student Responses, Question Details, and/or Item Analysis) are determined by the Export Options you have enabled.
  3. From your selected spreadsheet tab, use the Tab key on your keyboard to navigate to the first table in the spreadsheet. You may use the Tab key and Shift + Tab to navigate from one table cell to another, and the arrow keys to scroll within the preview.
  4. To exit the preview, either Shift + Tab back to your active spreadsheet tab or Tab forward through the end of the spreadsheet.

Skip to the step describing the formatted export spreadsheet.

  1. Question Correlation: A random ID number assigned to each question. When the same question has been used in multiple assessments, you can use its correlation number to identify it and compare student results across assessments and UVACollab sites. If the correlation number is not needed, you may remove it from the export. See the section on export options above.
