Managing session data and running reports
Managing session data in the PointSolutions app
Learn how to manage session data and run reports in the PointSolutions desktop app.
Sessions can be managed using the PointSolutions desktop app. Under the Manage tab, you have the ability to edit a session, merge sessions, run reports, etc.
Importing a session to PointSolutions
To import a session from an external or network drive, click Session and select Import from the menu. Browse to the saved session file and click Open. The session is imported and you will see a summary of the session(s). The session may be imported to Auto by default. Move the session file by dragging it from Auto and dropping it under the desired course.
Editing a session
Editing a session allows you to make changes to the point value of the questions, exclude questions from grading, remove questions, change correct answers, etc.
First, select the session you want to edit. (NOTE: when the session is selected, you will see an overview of the session on the Session Overview screen.)
Next, click on the Edit Session button. The Session Editor opens where you can make changes such as point value, correct answers or exclude questions from grading. Students’ grades for that session will automatically update after you save the changes. Click Save and Close when you are finished.
Generating reports for a session
To generate a report, select a session and click on the Reports button.
By default you will be brought to the Results by Question. You can change the type of report by clicking the drop-down menu at the top right-hand corner of the screen. You can export the results of your chosen report to Excel by clicking on the Export button in the upper left-hand corner. Click Close to go back to the Dashboard when you finish.
Note: When you run the Results Detail report, only students that logged into the session are displayed. A hyphen (-) instead of a score means that the student did not answer the question.
