Viewing Grade book Mastery View

The Mastery View displays evaluated outcomes as the columns of the table and the learners enrolled in the course as the rows of the table. Users can search for specific learners using the search field.

The column header provides the code (notation) of the outcome, if available, and a truncated statement of the outcome description. Below the outcome description in the column header there is a histogram display of learner evaluations related to this outcome grouped by levels of the achievement scale. Hovering over this histogram provides a tooltip with details of the learner evaluations.

Tooltip that details the learner evaluations for the histogram.

The cells in the table view of this page contain information about the evaluation details for each learner. The suggested level of overall achievement displayed in the cell by the level name is determined by the selected calculation method. The color coding of each cell is based on the color assigned to the level of the scale corresponding to the suggested overall level of achievement.

The white columns on the right side of this image indicate outcomes which have aligned assessment activities but for which no evaluations have been completed. As soon as the first evaluations are completed, that column displays suggested levels of achievement based upon those evaluation results.

Within each achievement cell, there are several indicators of the status of the learner’s progress toward the achievement, including:

  • Number of activities evaluated (out of the total aligned)
  • Suggested overall level of achievement (or manually overridden level of achievement)
  • Manual override indicator in the form of an asterisk beside the overall achievement label.
  • Out of Date icon (if newer evaluations have been made since a manual override was recorded or feedback is added)
  • Published/Not published icons to indicate the visibility status to the learner

Displays a single cell of the Mastery View, the manual override asterisk, the Out of Date icon, and the Not Published icon.

Note: The denominator value of the activity counter initially shows the number of assessment activities in the course which have been aligned for evaluation with the individual outcome. If the learner submits Brightspace Portfolio evidence artifacts that the instructor associates with course outcomes as the artifact is evaluated, then that artifact is included in both the numerator and denominator of the activity counter for that learner related to this outcome and those counter values are increased for that learner.
