Today’s Tip is for users of Quaver’s Curriculum!

To kick off the 2016-2017 school year with a bang, we are sharing back-to-school tips that will help you dive right into Quaver’s resources!

Have you ever experimented with Quaver’s Assessment Reports?

You probably already know that when you assign an assessment to students through Quaver’s Teacher Administration Tools, they are automatically graded and appear in your Quaver GradeBook. What you may not know is that your GradeBook is more powerful than it appears! Not only does it show each student’s individual grade, but it also offers reporting on the overall performance of the class on each assessment.

Quaver’s Assessment Reports allow teachers to see how many students answered a question correctly or incorrectly – allowing you to evaluate class comprehension and adjust your teaching if necessary.

How to access Assessment Reports:

1) Access your Teacher-Only Resources

Once you’ve logged in to your QuaverMusic.com teacher account, you can select either the TEACHER tab, located at the bottom of the screen, or the yellow TEACHER ACCESS Bus Stop sign, located on the lower left side.

2) Head to Teacher Admin

You will be directed to the Teacher Dashboard, a hub for all your teacher-only resources. Go to the top of the bulletin board and click the TEACHER ADMIN icon.

3) Choose UPDATE GRADEBOOK

Under the On-Going Tasks on the Teacher Administration Panel home screen, choose to UPDATE GRADEBOOK.

6) Analyze the Data

Boom-Chicka-Boom! You’ll see more data on which students missed what questions – helping you easily see which concepts may need more focus.

On the left, you’ll see Grade Distribution among the class. The Percent Missed graph on the right shows the percentage of the class that missed each question. To see which students answered the question incorrectly, simply click on the question.

You can use these graphs to dazzle your Principal! Let them know how the results you receive will drive your lesson planning.
