What students and marks are included in Assessment Analysis?

There's a whole host of analysis you can do using Arbor’s assessment analysis pages, but it's useful to know what data is included in the calculations on each page to help inform your assessment policies.

Below you'll find a table of what students and marks are included on each page, or you can see more information about individual pages here:

Why are there are extra students included in my analysis?

Depending on the dates selected, some of our assessment analysis pages may include students who have:

  • just joined the class and don't have grades input yet
  • moved to a different class
  • been enrolled in the class but never attended the school
  • left your school before the end of the academic year if they have had grades input

You can choose to include students who have left your school in the assessment analysis because we want to enable schools to analyse assessment progress as a whole, which should include progress made by all students while they were at the school.

Our analysis pages include any new students (joiners) students who have been added to a student group linked to an assessment, but who do not yet have marks input. This means your assessment will not show as having the data drop completed. to enable you to complete your data drop, you can request we turn on not required marks.

If you have students who never joined your school, you can see how they can be removed here
