Assessment

< All Topics

When you have permission to access learning management (set by the administrator on the DataMesh FactVerse platform), you can use the assessment feature in DataMesh Studio to create training and assessment scenarios.

You can set up user interactions with the scenario by adding link actions or interaction positions to elements, thus creating scenarios with assessment tasks and scoring. Through these interactive actions, users can complete assessment tasks, and their performance can be evaluated and assessed based on their actions.

Concepts

Tasks

In DataMesh Studio, tasks refer to functional modules used to assess and evaluate user performance in scenarios. By defining task scoring rules, users’ actions can be quantified and evaluated, thereby enhancing learning and work effectiveness.

DataMesh Studio supports two types of tasks, each corresponding to different types of interactive operations, and can set corresponding scoring rules:

1. Progression tasks:

    • Description: Progression tasks involve triggering page or scene transitions through user clicks on buttons, models, or sub-objects in the scene that have link actions added.
    • Interactive operations: Link actions.
    • Application scenarios: Progression tasks can be used for creating multiple-choice questions, such as selecting the correct operational steps. Users answer questions by clicking options, and selecting the correct answer navigates them to the corresponding feedback page.
    • Scoring rules: Scores are based on the pages or scenes users navigate to, and the time taken to complete the navigation.

2. Interaction tasks:

    • Description: Interaction tasks require users to move and rotate elements or objects within the scene to place them in specific target positions and orientations.
    • Interactive operations: Interaction position.
    • Application scenarios: Used to train users in precise operations and placements within virtual environments. For example, moving a tool to a specified location or rotating a component to the correct angle.
    • Scoring rules: Scores are based on whether users correctly place objects at the target position and orientation.

Interaction position

In DataMesh Studio, interaction position is a type of interactive operation used to define the initial and target positions (including position and rotation angle) of a model or its sub-object during interaction. In assessment functions, interaction positions can be used to set operations for moving or rotating objects, thereby defining the correct actions users should perform.

Select a model or its sub-object and click on Set Interaction Position in the attribute panel to edit the target position for moving or rotating this model or sub-object.

Initial Position: The specific position and rotation angle of the model at the start of the interaction.

Target Position: The position and rotation angle that the model needs to reach by the end of the interaction.

Task categories

Task types are used for categorizing and managing different tasks, making grade calculation and task management clearer and more efficient.

When setting the passing score for a task category, the following constraints and rules should be followed:

    • Total score constraint: The total score of all tasks within the task category should be greater than or equal to the passing score of the task category. This ensures that even if users fail to complete all tasks, they can still pass the assessment as long as they meet a certain standard.
    • Reasonable allocation: The passing score should be reasonably allocated based on the difficulty and total score of the tasks. The passing score should neither be too high nor too low, reflecting the requirement for users to meet the basic operational standards.

For example, consider a task category consisting of the following tasks:

    • Task 1: Maximum score of 50 points, scored based on results.
    • Task 2: Maximum score of 30 points, scored based on time.
    • Task 3: Maximum score of 20 points, scored based on results.

The total score is 100 points. In this case, a reasonable passing score could be set at 60 points. Users need to complete more than half of the tasks and achieve a certain level of performance to pass.

Create an assessment task scenario

Create interaction operations

Before creating the scenario for the assessment task, it is necessary to create link actions or interaction positions for interactive elements based on the category of interaction task.

1. Create link actions: For more information, please refer to the link section.

2. Create interaction positions:

a) Select the element and click on Set Interaction Position in the attribute pane.

b) After entering interaction editing mode, the workspace will indicate “Set Interaction Position”, and the selected model will have a blue highlighted outline (distinguished from the selected area of the model), supporting model dragging, rotation, and height adjustment.
c) In the attribute pane, proceed with interaction position settings. For example, customize the interaction name, set the target position of the element, etc.

The interaction position settings pane is shown in the following figure:

    • Interaction name: Customizable, supports modification
    • Initial position: Initial position and rotation angle of this element.
    • Target position: Similar to initial position accuracy, customizable. Supports displaying the dragged position of the model in real time.
    • Rotational lock-on: Optional. When selected, you can set the rotation lock-on range. Within a certain error range of the target rotation angle, it can lock on automatically. The lock-on range is customizable and supports up to four decimal places.
    • Positional lock-on: Optional. When selected, you can set the positional lock-on range. Within a certain range of the target position, it can lock on automatically. The lock-on range is customizable, unit in meters, and supports up to four decimal places.

d) Click on the x to exit interaction editing. In the pop-up prompt box, click the Yes button to save this operation.

Create tasks

DataMesh Studio provides two types of task templates for your selection:

    • Progression
    • Interaction

Create progression tasks

The steps for creating a progression task are as follows:

1. Click Assessment in the menu bar, then select the Task option.

2. In the task list of the property pane, click the Add button to open the Task Template window.

3. In the Task Template window, select Progression and click Confirm to open the Add task window.

Task category (required): The task category to which the task belongs, which needs to be created in advance in task category management.

Trigger condition: The condition under which the task is triggered, for example, trigger condition could be page number = 1, which means the task is triggered when reaching the first scene and the user should execute the task in this scene.

Completion condition: Conditions that need to be fulfilled to complete the progression task. For example, page number = 3, which means when the user clicks on a button, model, or sub-object in the scene to navigate to the third scene page, then the task is completed.

Scoring rules:

    • Direct Scoring: Users immediately receive a score upon completing the page progression task.
    • Time-based Scoring: Score based on the time taken by the user to complete the task.

4. In the Add Task window, fill in the task name, trigger condition, completion criteria, scoring rules, and then click Confirm to complete adding the task.

5. The added task will appear in the task list.

Create interaction tasks

The steps for creating an interaction task are as follows:

1. Click Assessment in the menu bar, then select the Task option.

2. In the Task list of the attribute panel, click the Add button to open the Task Template window.

3. In the Task Template window, select Interaction, and click Confirm to open the add Task window.

Task category: Specify which task category this task belongs to.

Interaction ID: Each interaction action within a scene corresponds to a unique Interaction ID. When setting assessment tasks, it is necessary to bind the assessment task with the Interaction ID, meaning that one assessment task corresponds to all interaction actions within one scene.

Scoring rules:

    • Direct Scoring: Users receive points immediately upon completing specified interaction actions.
    • Result score: Evaluation based on the correctness of interaction outcomes. For example, whether the model accurately moved to the target position.

Modify scenario play mode

When a scenario is created with the purpose of testing viewers, some scenarios can have a linear progression through their scenes, while others may need to jump around between scenes using the link action. The navigation window allows you to control how viewers are able to navigate between scenes, ensuring that they cannot skip forwards or backwards in an unintended order.

To modify the scenario playback mode, you can click on the scenario menu, select Modify Play Mode.

In the window of Modify Play Mode, check or uncheck the option for “Enable Stage Traversal” as needed. When this option is checked, you can navigate scenes by clicking the page turn button while playing the scenario in the training mode of DataMesh One.

Enable Stage Traversal: If this option is enabled, viewers can freely travel to the next scene whenever they want. Disabling this option ensures that they have to fulfill any conditions you have set before moving forward.

Enable Table of Contents: When this is enabled, viewers can see the table of contents, and select any scene that it contains in order to travel to that scene.
