Results Analysis Package (RAP) enhancements

Enhancements have recently been made to the Results Analysis Package (RAP). Users now have access to an interactive format of the:

  • Principal’s Result List
  • School Group Statistics
  • Components Report

Additionally, the Item Analysis function has a new Frequency Distribution feature. For cohorts of three or more students, teachers can view the range of raw marks awarded to student responses for each question or item. Teachers can also click on the column in the graph to produce a pop-up box listing the student(s) that received each raw mark.

A number of RAP support materials are located in Schools Online > Downloads > Memos and Documents > Results Analysis Package (RAP). The following Power Point presentations are available at this location:

  • How to set up staff access to the Results Analysis Package
  • Introduction to RAP (a beginners guide)
  • Using the “Work with Student Groups” function
  • Using Item Analysis Functions (new)
