Zeroes & Dashes


The Administrator Usage Report displays counts of certain sets of data and the averages and percentages
of others.  A dash (-) or a zero might show up in a field on the report. Below are some reasons why. 




  • A zero in a field means Revision Assistant made a calculation that resulted in a zero.
  • Here are some example scenarios below:



What field has the zero?               What causes a zero there?

No. of Active Assignments
  • No assignments were created for the selected schools and date range    OR 
  • An assignment was created, BUT no teacher or student opened the assignment
No. of Essays
  • No assignments were created, so no essays were written      OR
  • Students may have started writing, BUT no student requested a Signal Check
No. of Signal Checks
  • Students may have started writing, BUT no student requested a Signal Check





  • A dash in a field means Revision Assistant didn't have enough valid data to make a calculation.
  • Here are some example scenarios below:



What field has the dash?                   What causes a dash there?

Percentage of Essays with
More than One Signal Check
  • Assignments may have been active, BUT no essays were written   OR
  • No student has requested more than one Signal Check on their essay
Average No. of Signal
Checks per Essay
  • No assignments were created, so no essays were written      OR
  • Students may have started writing, BUT no one requested a Signal Check
Percent (%) with Increased
Signal Check Scores
  • Revision Assistant couldn't generate a Signal Check score
    at least twice per essay to calculate an increase in score
