As a District Administrator, should you want students at particular grade level(s) to take a specific test on a specific date, you can create customized tests for them or use one of ours. This feature is called Scheduled Testing. (Note: These tests are given during school hours only so check and adjust your Time Settings in your School Management area, should you want students to do these tests as homework.)
Grade Level Scheduled Test
Before moving on, know that this Grade Level Scheduled Tests area serves two purpose. It is used to:
1. Create tests; and
2. Identify which student(s) did not take the test. (View in the section called View Completion Progress below.)
How you create and issue a Grade Level Scheduled Test
To schedule and administer a Grade Level Scheduled Test, select School Management from your district dashboard.
Now, select the Grade Level Scheduled Tests tab.
From here, click the green Create New Scheduled Test button to create your test.
Once at the menu, you can choose to either compose your own scheduled test, or you can choose to use one that is already in the program (i.e., Home Row, Top Row, etc.) or one that you’ve already created and placed in our program previously.
To create a new scheduled test, press the green Create New Custom Test button. You can then use the text box to compose the test for a particular grade (s).
To use a scheduled test previously created, select the blue paper icon next to the test name to issue it.
Select Grade Level (s)
Next, select the grade(s) you would like to issue this test to, the time limit, the dates available and the maximum number of attempts and click Save.
How will students access the Scheduled Test?
When the student logs in, they will see the scheduled test before anything else on their screen.
Viewing Completion Progress
You may want to view the status of your Scheduled Test as it's being completed by the students. This could be helpful in following up with your staff to ensure that students are working. You can find each student's test status from where you created the test.
From the beginning, select School Management from your district dashboard.
Then, select the Grade Level Scheduled Tests tab.
Now you will see a list of all the tests you've created for the district. Should there be a one that you'd like to review, click on any eyeball on the right.
Now, you'll see a report by school of how many students have taken the test, have not taken the test, as well as the total students in the grade the test was assigned to.
If you prefer only to see the schools with students who have taken the test, you can press the switch at the top right to Hide Empty.
Should you want to dig deeper as to which students specifically have been assigned the test in a school, you can select the eyeball on the right of that school.
Here, you'll see all students who are scheduled to take the test as well as their school and classroom. (Note: If the student is listed "Unassigned" or "Multiple Classrooms", they are either not assigned to any classroom, or enrolled in multiple. For more information on students who are unassigned, click here.)
If you'd like to delete the scheduled test, you can also select the trash can icon to remove it from your students' schedule.
Viewing The Results
Of course, you'll want to see how well your students have done on their tests. You can find each student's test results from where you created the test.
From the beginning, select Reports from your district dashboard.
Then, scroll down to the drop-down menu and select the Grade Level Scheduled Test report. Select which grades and schools you'd like to view.
Then, select Run Report.
To view the specific tests, select Download Test Scores immediately under the drop down menu.
Now you will see a list of all the tests you've created for the criteria you've chosen. Should there be a one that you'd like to review, click on any eyeball on the right.
The results of the individual schools will appear. From this you will get a general picture of how each school did on that test.
Then, should you want to then dig into a particular school's results, click the eyeball to the right of that school's test scores. Now, you'll be able to see how individual students did in that Scheduled Test that you had them do. The grades they receive are based on the grading scheme your district uses or our defaults, should you not have modified them:
After you have reviewed the scores, you may click the Back button to go to the previous screen.
