How to get quiz statistics in LearnDash? 1


Being a student is easy. Learning requires actual work.

— William Crawford

If you’re someone who teaches online, then you’d probably understand how important it is to evaluate what your learners have learned. To help with that, you can hold online exams, ask students to submit assignments, or quiz them.

In LearnDash, you can easily add assignments and quizzes to your courses to test their knowledge.

But to check how your learners have performed, you need to look at their scores i.e quiz results and statistics.

Quiz statistics – learner scores, time spent on quizzes, and average pass percentage, among other things can help you determine their performance, track their activity, and also where they stand as compared to others. 

But how do you get quiz statistics in LearnDash?

Exporting quiz statistics in LearnDash

In LearnDash, you can view quiz statistics from within the WordPress admin area. Just follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the quiz you’d like to view statistics for
  2. Click the Actions dropdown menu in the top corner
  3. Select Statistics

Note that these stats are for all quizzes and all students.

The quiz statistics will include details like Student details — student ID, name, and e-mail, Quiz details — quiz ID and title, Results — the rank, score, and total score of the student, and Date — the date of attempt.

But to understand the quiz performance in-depth, you’ll need to look at additional metrics. For example:

  • The class average along with the individual score of students
  • The time taken by each student to complete the quiz
  • And the points earned, among other things.

Using these quiz metrics you can evaluate which quizzes are tough or easy for your learners which can mean that the learner needs extra help in that particular lesson, topic, or course.

Hence, you gain insight into quizzes, which can help you detect where your learners lose momentum, measure the training outcome, and also improve the course curriculum.

Now, you’re not required to infer this information manually. To generate rich and insightful quiz reports in LearnDash you’ll need to use the Quiz Reporting Extension for LearnDash
