    • Grades - each student's score out of the total marks for the quiz, which questions they got correct/incorrect, and the overall average.
    • Responses - each student's score out of the total marks for the quiz, which questions they got correct/incorrect, plus the response they chose.
    • Statistics - tabulated statistics for average and median grade, standard deviation, score distribution (skewness and kurtosis), coefficient of internal consistency and error ration and standard error.
    • Manual grading - text questions that require grading
