Quick Guide - Create a Summary Assessment or a Demographic
Summary assessments show summative data (e.g., total score for a test) as opposed to question-by-question response data. A student demographic is just like a summary assessment except it tracks non-assessment data (e.g., # of cans donated in a drive, peer buddy hours, etc.), and it can be added to Illuminate using the same steps below.
While more detailed lessons are available in our "Summary Assessments" manual, this quick guide can be printed as a single, 1-sided sheet.
1. Add the columns to be included in your assessment. Click Add a New Column.
2. Enter a name and choose the Column Type from the drop down menu.
3. Enter the Column Values you will be inputting.
4. Repeat these steps for each column you want to add > click Save.
Tip: If you plan to pull this data into a custom report, be sure to make use of the Number and Boolean options. Number allows you to filter by greater than and less than. Boolean allows you to filter by Yes/No or True/False.
