After every weekly unit, there is an assigned test. These tests are located on our online version and can be accessed through the teacher’s profile. To help prepare students for the test, each article has comprehension questions listed at the end. Students can answer these questions and potentially earn coins which they can use in a few of our online games.
Refreshing Comprehension Questions
Some teachers who have multiple classes have the option of refreshing their answers so that a blank set is ready for the next class. You can do this by clicking the drop-down menu on the top right-hand corner and selecting “Clear Progress.”
From there, all you have to do then is refresh the page and you’re good to go! Once your students have completed the practice questions and have finished the week’s final lesson, then they are ready to take the test.
Accessing the Test
To activate the test, simply select the publication you are using. This will then take you to a page listing all of the weeks in order. Find the week you are working on. Each week will be accompanied by four options located on the right.
The first option will be “Activate Test.” Go ahead and click the button to change it from red to green. This will now give your students access to the test. No need to worry about students losing their progress while taking the test because their answers will be automatically saved. If you decide to edit the test, select the second option “Edit Test.”
One of the first things you will see when you edit a test is an option to add a new question. When you select that button it will provide you with a drop-down menu that includes a list of options to choose from. Below is what those options entail:
Each question will also have an “edit” button below it. This enables you to change the question and answers. You can also determine which option will be the correct answer. If you decide to keep the original question instead, you can always click, “Reset Question.”
If a student needs to retake a test, go back to the list of weeks. On the week they are working on, select the third option “Test Scores.” Make sure that the test is activated or else the student won’t have access.
When in the Test Scores tab, click on the student’s name on the left-hand side. Then click on the “Allow Retake” option below their name.
You also have the option of letting the whole class retake the test. If you select the checkbox left of the first name category, it will select every student. From there, select “Allow Retake.”
When students log into their online accounts and click on that week, they will find a test available for them to take, or specifically, to retake.
