Managing session data in the Turning app

Learn how to manage session data and run reports in the Turning desktop app.

Sessions can be managed using the TurningPoint desktop app. Under the Manage tab, you have the ability to edit a session, merge sessions, run reports, etc.

Importing a Session to TurningPoint

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 imported 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.

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.
