In-Diagnostic

Note: this type of messaging is not yet available, but will be coming in early 2018.

This message type will allow you to display custom messaging to your students in the middle of completing the initial diagnostic assessment. We know that students sometimes quit the test before reaching the end, so this can be useful if you want to provide encouragement to keep going. You can also provide different messages to students based on how well they are performing on the diagnostic.

In the Content field, enter the message you want your students to see. 

These milestones may eventually be visible in the reports, so you can indicate a (Milestone) Name associated with hitting this score.

Students will see this message when they have reached the EdReady score indicated in the Score field. For example, if you enter "50" here, students will see this message when they reach an EdReady score of 50. 

Ensure that you mark the message Active if you would like your students to see it.

Indicate how you would like this message displayed: On-Screen and/or via Email if you would like this message sent via email to the student's account. If others should also receive a copy of this message, select the Add more email recipients button. 

Be sure to Save your message.

Adding Score-Based Post-Diagnostic Messages

If you want to provide additional instructions to students based on how well they are performing on the diagnostic, select one of the Limit Zone options. The on-screen display will update to display the additional settings:

'Two Limit' options shown above

No Limit = all students will see the same message (entered in the 'Content' field)

One Limit = if you want to show a different message to students that earn above and below a specified score, select this option. You will be able to indicate the Score threshold and the message displayed to students Below the Limit or Above the Limit

Two Limits = this option allows you to show a different message to students based on two score thresholds. Indicate the Upper Limit score and Lower Limit Score. The messaging students see will depend on the score earned:

  • Score is less than the 'Lower Limit': Below the Limit message
  • Score is between the 'Lower Limit' and 'Upper Limit': Middle zone message
  • Score is greater than the 'Upper Limit': Above the Limit message

How Students see a Post-Diagnostic Message

When students complete the Initial Diagnostic, they will see and/or receive via email (based on settings selected) the Post-Diagnostic Message. An example message is below:
