Discover how to get the most out of misconceptions to help support your students effectively πŸ“

Updated over a week ago

With the use of diagnostic questions, we reveal students' misconceptions and offer guided support to help resolve them. We track their progress and inform you of where students go wrong and why.

You can view our misconception data from hundreds of thousands of students prior to assigning work to help plan for error, as well as view your own students' misconception results once they start to complete assignments.

How to view misconception data before assigning a topic quiz:

  1. Click on the "+ Set Work" button in your navigation panel.

  2. Find a quiz you'd like to preview and click on it.

  3. Click on a question to enlarge it, then select "Show answers".

  4. You can now click on each answer in the bar chart to reveal each answer's explanation. This will highlight what the most common misconceptions are from students who've previously answered this question - great for planning ahead of lessons!

How to view your students' misconceptions after they complete a topic quiz:

  1. Go to your Results page.

  2. Click on the name of a quiz you'd like to view misconception data on.

  3. Select the Misconceptions tab.

The Misconceptions tab allows you to dig deeper into where misconceptions have been Identified, Resolved, or remain Unresolved. You can filter through each section to highlight your selection.

When is a misconception Identified?
When a student answers their diagnostic question incorrectly we identify this as a misconception.

When is a misconception marked as resolved?

Students have two attempts at answering a diagnostic question. If they get their first attempt wrong we provide them with written feedback and ask them to have another go. If their second attempt is correct their misconception is marked as resolved.
If the student's second attempt is wrong we take them into a lesson. At the end of their lesson they'll be given a checkout diagnostic question (similar to the first question), again with two answer attempts. If either of these attempts are correct their misconception is marked as resolved.

When is a misconception marked as unresolved?

If a student still answers their diagnostic question wrong after help from Eedi, their misconception is marked as unresolved. This indicates where further support may be needed.

Resolve misconceptions

The Resolve Misconceptions tab reveals the 3 questions where most misconceptions were identified with your students.

Here you can click on each to present it to your class. Once you've discussed the question, you can reveal your student's spread of answers.

After discussing you can mark the misconception as Resolved βœ…

Question Breakdown

We have misconception explanations written for all answers. These give you an insight into what misconceptions your students may have when a particular answer is chosen. These can be helpful to use when giving your students feedback!

You can find our written explanations under the Question Breakdown tab. You can click on the A, B, C, and D answers options to see each. Doing this will also filter to show which students chose that answer.
