My students took assessments today, where can I view their scores?
- Classroom User/Teacher - user will be able to view scores immediately after screening on the Screening tab and in Reports
- Specialist/School Manager/District Manager - to see same day testing results, these users will need to drill down in the upper right corner and “View As” a specific teacher. While viewing as a teacher they can access scores via the Screening tab and/or Reporting tab.
- Reports viewed from the Specialist level and above update nightly, users will not see same day data on the reports from those levels.
My student is on question 34 of 30 aReading/aMath, what do I do?
- aReading and aMath can have up to 60 questions. aReading and aMath are adaptive tests, which means that the assessments choose subsequent questions based on previous answers. Typically, the test only needs about 30 questions to determine a student's score. In certain instances, however, the test cannot determine the score in only 30 questions. In these cases, the student will receive a red flag next to their score to indicate that additional assessment questions are needed to calculate a more accurate score. The student will have to answer up to 30 additional questions. Sometimes the test will launch immediately into additional questions. Please have the student complete the additional questions!
- For more information, please see What is the flag next to a score?
