Administering Tests

Discover various methods to administer tests efficiently. From Yes/No test, Single Score, Rubric and Self Assess, we offer flexible options to suit your needs. 

Administering a Yes/No Test: 

  1. Click on the student's name in your class list, then click "Test".


  2. Choose between New Session or Resume.
  • The first time the test is being administered, you will only have the option for a New Session.
  • Closing out of a previous test before all the questions were recorded as correct, incorrect or skip (by selecting the “X” in the top right), will result in giving you the option to resume the test session.
  • If you choose to resume the test session, you will continue the test where you left off and upon completion the results will be recorded as one test session with the most recent test date.
  • To test incorrect and not tested, choose New Session, then Incorrect & Not Tested.

Administering a Student Self-Assess Test: 

Student Self-Assess testing option allows teachers to introduce students to using a computer or tablet. Teachers set up the test on a device for the student to take a multiple-choice test. Audio is available for questions and answer choices, so students can navigate independently. 

Helpful Hints: 

Determine whether student(s) would benefit from Student Self-Assess testing. If not, disable it in your account setting:
Click Student Testing Options, then slide the Self-Assess Administration bar to the left to disable:  
 

  1. Choose a device not needed by the teacher while the student assesses.

  2. If using an iPad, please be sure it is in the horizontal/landscape position.

  3. Practice tests are available, and students should be encouraged to take them as many times as necessary.

  4. Supervise the first few self-assess test sessions until the student is comfortable.

  5. Encourage students to listen to the question audio before submitting answers. To avoid distracting other students, headphones might be helpful.

  6. Teachers can log into their account on multiple devices to configure the self-assess tests for each student.

  7. If a student has never taken a Self-Assess test, a Practice Test will automatically be made available in the first test slot. The Practice Test contains 6 questions that will familiarize students with the buttons and question types they will see in Self-Assess tests (multiple choice, etc.) The Practice Test can be taken as many times as needed, does not record any scores, and is not included in any reporting. 

    A Practice Test can be added to any suite of tests for any student by clicking the "Add Practice Test" button. The Practice Test can be removed by clicking the X on the test card. 
    A total of three tests can be selected (Practice Test plus two Self-Assess or a three Self-Assess tests).
