Use Case 11


Student responses are an important source of data for many research questions. As such, their raw response data and associated scores must be stored in an accessible (i.e., viewable or downloadable) format.


Student response data has been uploaded (i.e., there is data to work with!)

Basic course of events

    • Researcher is interested in misconceptions in genetics.
    • Researcher searches database for appropriate genetic assessment items.
    • Researcher downloads student answers and scores to those items (could be a few responses or thousands).
    • Researcher codes those responses according to their 'misconception' rubric.
    • Researcher uploads their rubric (and perhaps even tags assessment items with that rubric).

    • Faculty member would like to use part of an assessment for an in-class quiz. S/he is unsure is these particular assessment items were used as clicker questions or on an exam.
    • S/he looks to the point values assigned to the assessment items and the entire assessment for an indication.

    • Any other ideas?
