How is the objective mastery percentage calculated?

I am getting many questions from our teachers as we begin to use objective mastery more and more...

How is the objective mastery percentage calculated?  

The student hasn't completed all of the activities, yet is listed as 100% for one of the objectives.  Yet another is listed at 19%.  How are these calculated?

 

Thanks

Hello Eric,

The Objective Mastery percentage is calculated based on how many points the student has accrued that are aligned to that objective compared against the number of points possible for that objective in the entire course and the objective mastery threshold (default of 80%). So in this instance if the objective mastery threshold is set to 80% then this student has accrued at least 80% of the possible points aligned to the objective in this course.

Scott,

 

Some lessons have more than one objective linked to an assessment. Let's say there are two standards linked to an assessment. If the student earned 80% on one objective(as referenced by one point on the rubric), but only 50% on the second objective (as reference on a different part on the rubric), how does the objective mastery report differentiate between the two objectives? 

 

Thanks,

Amy

I am wondering also if there are plans to help make those bar graph lines more granular?   To be able to see which assessments are included and what the scores were?  This would be very helpful as schools continue the path towards standards based grading.

Amy,

If there are multiple standards aligned to an assessment each standard will be calculated based on the point of the questions for which they are aligned, in all other gradable items the standards will both use the item's value for the score possible. It is not currently possible to align objectives with specific parts of a rubric but rather the item itself.

Erik,

We are investigating improvements to the mastery display to provide more information. There is no ETA at this time for when it will be available but it is something we are investigating.
