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 where students go wrong and why.
To find your students' misconceptions:
Go to your Assignments page.
Click the Results button for your chosen quiz.
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 another diagnostic question (similar to the first), 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.
We have misconception explanations written for all answers. These give you an insight into what misconceptions your students may have. These explanations can be helpful to use when giving either verbal or written feedback.
You can find these by either clicking on the question number when reviewing results or by going straight to the Question breakdown tab.
