Response Analysis Tool
Response Analysis offers new analysis functions to
inQsit. The page has four main tables.
General Information. The general information table gives
low, high, mean, median and standard deviation values for
the scores and duration values. It also shows the first and
last start times for the particular assessment module.
Score Distribution. Shows the number and percentage of
students that received scores in each of 10 percentages from
0-10% up to 90-100%. With sufficient numbers of respondents,
this table should look like a modified bell curve in the
upper score ranges.
Duration vs. Score. This table shows both the
distribution and average scores based on how long the
respondent took to complete the test/survey. There are five
(5) evenly spaced time frames from the shortest to longest
This table will help you determine the optimum time limit
for your tests. Remember that one way to deter cheating is
to find an appropriate time limit that lets students get
done with the test without providing too much time. If most
of the students are responding in a shorter time period, but
the average score is staying the same, it is likely that the
shorter time period might be a reasonable time limit target.
Start Time vs. Score. Similar to the second table, this
shows the count and average scores based on when each
respondent started the test or survey. This table can be
used to help determine if additional time is affecting the
average score. If it is, perhaps additional randomization
features might help.
This page also lets you analyze linked assessment modules
together for a comprehensive look at a test given to
multiple classes or surveys given by several surveyors.
Pull-down List Processing
Safari users now can use the same pull-down, or select,
list processing as Firefox users have natively. Instead of
having to scroll to the entry, they only need type the
For example, when the main inQsit page loads, I only need
type "f o r t" to select my area.
IE Users should also enjoy this feature. Prior to the
list processing code was added for IE, I would have had to
type "f" thirteen (13) times to reach my area name.
Also, when either the main inQsit page loads, or the
subsequent page if your account has sub-folders, you can
immediately start typing the area or folder name. You don't
need to click on the pull-down list before typing.
