An assessment is a set of scored questions, which you and your students can use to monitor understanding and performance. Use a variety of question types (including several based on the SBAC) in your assessment so students can demonstrate understanding in different ways.

  • View Whether Answer is correct:  select when you would like students to see if they answered the question correctly - per question and at the end of the assessment, only at the end of the assessment, or never have the ability to see if they answered the questions correctly.
  • Answer Key:  set switch to On if you allow students to view the answer key after they take the assessment.  Set switch to Off if you do not allow students to see the answer key.
  • Attempts: select the number of times you allow students to take the assessment - from 1 to 9 attempts or unlimited number of times.
