Progress Monitoring Assessments
To manually enter student scores/responses, go to the “Measures” tab and select the Progress Monitoring tab. Next click on the grade of the test you want to enter.
Now scroll down the page until you locate the name of the assessment you wish to administer. On the right-hand side you will see a “Enter Scores” link. A pop-up window will appear. Select the group name, then a scoresheet will appear. Fill in the student responses or scores. Make sure to select the Save button when you are finished entering the scores. The program will score the responses and then the results will be graphed in the Reports section.
If you administer the benchmark assessments in hard copy/paper and pencil format, then you can download the student copies of the tests to administer to students and then score them with the answer keys. These tests are located by going to your Measures tab. The Benchmarks tab appears. You will click on the season icon with the black arrow pointing downward.
After clicking on this icon you will be directed to a page where you can enter student responses and scores. Choose the student’s grade and then look to the left-hand side of where you enter data, and choose to either enter the total score or item level data. After you have completed entering the scores/responses, please scroll down to the bottom of the page and make sure to click on the “Save Scores” button to record the information.
Remember, before you can enter benchmark scores into the system, you must first make sure the benchmark testing window is open. Setting and opening a benchmark window is always at the discretion of the head administrator. To access this feature, login and go to the “Admin” tab. Next locate the System Settings section and click on Manage System Settings.
Under Benchmarking Window Settings, select the opening and closing dates for each testing window. The benchmark window needs to be current for testing to occur and the remaining benchmark dates need to be staggered with only one testing window open at a time. The dates also need to be moving forward in time. It is recommended these benchmark dates are set to a three week window. After selecting the dates, please make sure to click on the “Update Benchmark Dates” button in order for the changes to take effect.
