The Campuses tab is used to select the campuses that are associated with the test.
All campuses that are associated with the test need to be checked. Either select all campuses from the list, or filter by grade level to see a list of only those campuses that teach that grade level and click Select All.
The Students tab is used to associate students to a test.
There are five ways a student can be assigned to a test:
- Students in selected courses - select the appropriate roster courses for the test. This is the most widely used option because it allows teachers to print their own answer documents by their roster classes. This is also the best choice for allowing online testing.
- Students by their homeroom/advisor teachers - for each campus, select the homeroom/advisor teachers for the test. This is NOT used most of the time because districts rarely import their advisor teachers.
- All students in the test's grade level - if all students for an entire grade will be taking the test and answer documents do not need to be organized by courses or teachers, this option can be used. This option is generally used for a "mock" test situations. Note: Only the test administrator can print answer documents by grade level. This option is not broken up by class and cannot be used for online testing.
- All students at selected campuses - for each campus that is selected in the Campus Tab, all students for each campus will be assigned to the test. This is NOT used most of the time because tests are rarely made for multiple grade levels.
- Selected teachers for printing - for each campus, select the teacher associated with the test. If this option is selected, benchmark printers and administrators will not be able to print answer documents for the teacher. Only the teacher will be able to print the answer documents.
Student filtering limits printing of answer documents by program status, form, grade level, or monitor group. If multiple filters are applied across the same filtering category, students can meet either criterion selected. For example, if At Risk and Section 504 are selected, any students who are At Risk OR Section 504 will be included. However, if Third grade is also selected, only Third grade At Risk OR Third grade Section 504 students will be included.
Rescore a Test
Rescoring can be used if:
- The Satisfactory or Advanced level needs to be changed
- The key needs to be corrected
- Question weighting needs to be changed
- The question needs to be associated with a different learning standard
Clear Answer Documents
There are two ways that answer documents can be cleared/deleted:
- By student - If a student's answer document was accidentally scanned and the score needs to be removed, click the
- Delete Answer Sheet icon. Select the student from the list and choose Remove. If a student's answer document is removed, the document cannot be rescanned because the code at the bottom of the answer document becomes invalid. Please use this feature with caution!
- All answer documents - If the test needs to be changed (i.e. a question needs to be added or removed), all answer documents can be cleared so that the test can be changed. By clearing answer documents, all student scores associated with the test are deleted. Any answer documents printed prior to clearing the answer documents need to be reprinted because all answer documents previously printed become invalid. Use caution when clearing all answer documents!
