Each slice of the assessments chart corresponds to a grade item or a category of grade items (for example, Projects or Quizzes). The size of each slice corresponds to the overall weight of the grade item or category. If a particular slice corresponds to a category of grade items, its outer edge is broken into as many sections as there are grade items. For example, in this chart, the Quizzes slice indicates that there are three grade items associated with the category. You can click slices that contain multiple grade items to view a chart focusing on those grade items. To return to the general view of the predictive chart, click the center of the chart.
The assessments chart also displays the class range for each grade category. The class range consists of all grades for the category from all participants in the class, excluding the bottom 25% and top 25%. The closer to the outer edge of the chart the class range is, the higher the class range grades are. For example, in this chart, the Learner Grade is closer to the outer edge than the Class Range in the Quizzes slice. Therefore, the learner achieved a grade in the top 25% of the class in this category. This gives instructors a quick and easy way to identify where their learners' grades fall in the class range.
