Previous: Understanding Assessment Properties
On this tab you will specify the Name of the assessment. This is visible to students and reporting users (see below).
note: most non-alphabet characters cannot be included in assessment names. You can find more details here.
It is also important to note that an assessment name can only be used once.
Many Assessment properties (such as the Target Score and Customized Scope) cannot be edited once there is student data. If guest access was not used for the testing or students have used your assessment, the assessment will be locked and you will need to create a new assessment to incorporate updates to those sections. (When testing, you can use Guest access to ensure the test data is not saved.)
The Target Score is the score (on a scale of 1-100) that your students will be working towards in their study path. (The only exception is if your students use the ‘School Search’ functionality and choose their own schools and associated target scores.) Because the target score is on a 100-point scale, you can think of it as the % of material you want your students to master. For example, a target score of 90 indicates that your students need to master 90% of the material covered by this assessment in order to complete it.
If this is an assessment that is aligned to an external test (such as the Accuplacer®, Compass®, etc) where you know the target score for your students on that test, the EdReady team can help you determine a comparable EdReady target score.
The Disable expedited testing property allows you to change the way that test questions are presented to students. If you select this option, EdReady will NOT present students with any questions that cover multiple learning objectives, so tests will likely take more time to complete. This will be in effect for all testing activities within EdReady, so will change the behavior for the initial diagnostic, as well as any Unit- and Topic-level tests. (We expect that you will only turn this option on in rare circumstances, and that in most cases will want students to have faster testing experiences.)
If the Active checkbox is checked/ on, this assessment is available for your students to work on. If you make an assessment inactive, students will no longer be able to access that study path, though it will still remain in their downloadable report.
If the Exclude from Reports checkbox is checked/on, this assessment will not be available for your reporting users to view. You may choose to set this value for an assessment that was used for testing/demo purposes, or for historical assessments that won’t need to be accessed.
You also have the ability to apply tags to assessments so they can more easily be identified in a list and in the reports.
