(School) Assessment Testing

 

The Assessment option allows school administrators to accept students into the Assessment Testing phase of a course. This means students will be enrolled in a course but only have access to the assessment tests for that provider level. During this phase, they cannot access linear or adaptive tests. The assessment tests allow the school administrators to better understand who the students are and what they know before officially admitting them into the entire course.  

 

Cost: Student access to the Assessment phase is $5. This cost does not come off the cost of the full course.

Note: Assessment Tests are also available to students accepted into the course via Full Access.

 

Assessments Available:

Entry Exam: This assessment helps you understand the student's current knowledge of their program and determine whether remediation is needed.
