Our development team has worked to consolidate the create a test workflow. In the past, the test wizard was always started with "Create a New Test" or "Create a New Teacher Test" and then users would click through a multi-step, multi-page wizard. This article will detail the new process.
As seen above, Campus/District Test Creators and Teachers will now choose one of the three options for creating a new test. The roles/rights of the user will determine the level of the test being created. Selecting an option will then move to the respective test creation page.
Create a New Blank Test
Selecting the Create a New Blank Test option will open the below screen. The details to be filled out are similar to what has always been in the test wizard but will now all be on one page. Users will: type a title of the test, select a subject, assign a grade level, assign performance level percentages, select a test type, associate a primary course and associate a campus(es) if applicable. Then click Generate Test.
Copy an Existing Test
Copying an Existing test starts by selecting a test to copy from available types and tests.
After selecting a test to copy, you can update the following information to reflect the new version of the test.
Create a Quick Test Key
Creating a test key is now done in three steps.
Step 1: Type a title of the test, select a subject, assign a grade level, assign performance level percentages, select a test type, associate a primary course and associate a campus(es) if applicable. Then click Build Quick Key.
Step 2: Add question types to your key by clicking Add Rule then selecting the desired type. Numerical response griddables and constructed response score ranges can be formatted here as well. Once all questions have been added click Create Quick Key.
Step 3: The Test Key view will open. In the Test Key view, correct responses, Learning Standards, and item weight can be assigned to the questions.
Legacy Create a Test Workflow
The legacy workflow will continue being available for a short time, while everyone gets accustomed to the new workflow.
