Creating a New Test

ESGI has over 2000+ pre-loaded tests available, but also allows the flexibility to customize the available tests or create new tests specific to your school or district.

Simple tests that have lists (sight words, numbers, letters, etc.) can easily be created by copying the items from a document and pasting them into the ESGI test. You can create tests by using either Creating a New Test or Auto Test Creator. Steps for creating a Yes/No Test, Single Score and Rubric Test can be found below. 

  1. On the right side of your home screen select Create a New Test under Subject Tabs & Tests.
  2. Begin by selecting your Test Type: Yes/No, Single Score, or Rubric:

Yes/No:  Will be a test with multiple questions

Single Score: Will be a test with one question and multiple points

Rubric: Measures student performance with set criteria and levels.

Explanations of required and optional field descriptions are found below.
