The Teacher Dashboard aggregates and displays data about student performance, progress, and teacher responsiveness. It can be accessed it from the Teacher Home page.

Teacher Dashboard data

In order to provide this summarized data, Buzz assesses it in the following ways by default:

  1. Teacher responsiveness in grading activities for each course falls into one of three color categories:
    • Green means the teacher has graded all submitted, gradable items within 2 days or less.
    • Yellow means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 3 or more days ungraded.
    • Red means one or more submitted, gradable items have gone 6 or more days ungraded.
  2. Aggregated Student performance for each course falls into one of three color categories:
    • Green means that, in aggregate, a course's students are performing above 10% of the minimum grade for the course.
    • Yellow means that, in aggregate, a course's students have failed in 1 of their last five submissions or they are within 10% of failing the course.
    • Red means that, in aggregate, a course's students have failed 2 of their last five submissions or they are failing the course.
  3. Aggregated Student pace for each course falls into one of three color categories:
    • Green means that, in aggregate, a course's students are submitting all gradable items on time or that less than 10% are past due.
    • Yellow means that, in aggregate, a course's students have 10% or more of gradable items past due.
    • Red means that, in aggregate, a course's students have 30% or more of gradable items past due.

Change Teacher Dashboard data defaults

If you want to change these thresholds to meet your organizations standards:

  1. Open the side menu in Domain > Details.  
  2. Select Edit Settings.
  1. Scroll to the bottom of the window and select XML Editor.
  1. Add the following code to the Domain Customization window of the XML Editor within the customization tags:
<enrollmentmetrics>
  <performance>
    <score red="0" yellow="0.25"/>
    <direction count="5" red="2" yellow="1"/>
  </performance>
  <pace>
    <late red="0.3" yellow="0.15"/>
    <activity red="15" yellow="8" range="false"/>
  </pace>
  <responsiveness red="5" yellow="3"/>
  <completion red="0.8" yellow="0.9"/>
  <rollup redweight="4" yellowweight="1" red="0.3" yellow="0.1"/>
</enrollmentmetrics>

This code represents the enrollmentmetrics element and it specifies the parameters for the data shown on the Teacher Dashboard and elsewhere in Buzz. Each value is optional, and if not otherwise specified, the defaults outlined above are used.

  1. Edit the relevant values to meet your standards (see table).
  2. Save.

Elements

This table outlines the enrollmentmetrics elements you can edit for your courses.

Element
Attribute
Meaning 
enrollmentmetrics / performance / score
red
The fraction above the course passing score for the red threshold. The default is 0. For example if passing score is 0.7 set red="0.1" to make the threshold 0.73.

yellow
The fraction above the course passing score for the yellow threshold. This is larger than red. The default is 0.25. For example if passing score is 0.7 set yellow="0.3" to make the threshold 0.79.
enrollmentmetrics / performance / direction
count
The last count number of gradable items to use. Default is 5.

red
The minimum number of items below passing. The default is 2.

yellow
The minimum number of items below passing. The default is 1.
enrollmentmetrics / pace / late
red
The fraction of items that are past the due date. The default is 0.3.

yellow
The fraction of items that are past the due date. The default is 0.15.
enrollmentmetrics / pace / activity
red
The number of days without any student activity in this enrollment. The default is 15.

yellow
The number of days without any student activity in this enrollment. The default is 8.

range
Set to true to apply activity metrics to range sections. The default is false. Normally range sections have other indications that the student needs help, including late and performace.
enrollmentmetrics / responsiveness
red
The number of days that the oldest assignment has been in the queue to be graded. The default is 5.

yellow
The number of days that the oldest assignment has been in the queue to be graded. The default is 3.
enrollmentmetrics / completion
red
The fraction of student enrollments with a passing grade. The default is 0.8.

yellow
The fraction of student enrollments with a passing grade. The default is 0.9.
enrollmentmetrics / rollup
redweight
The weight for a rollup for a red signal. The default is 4.

yellowweight
The weight for a rollup for a yellow signal. The default is 1.

red
The weighted average for signals for a rollup. The default is 0.3.

yellow
The weighted average for signals for a rollup. The default is 0.1.
