Test Monitoring

This article contains:

Overview

The Test Monitoring page allows users to analyze testing data, monitor student progress on an online test, lock or unlock a student's test, submit a student's test and pause a timed test if that functionality was enabled when the test was scheduled. The Test Monitoring page also allows users to enter points earned for a test item. When running the report keep the following guidelines in mind:

  •  The Test Monitoring page is set to automatically refresh every two minutes.
  • There is a manual Refresh Data button that may be used if you wish to refresh the page more often.
  • The auto refresh is disabled for classes with more than 50 students.
  • A user has the ability to disable the automatic refresh. This will apply only to that specific assessment.

Student Options

In the middle of the page each student is listed, along with the following options for their tests:

Lock/Unlock/Submit

The lock icon in the header will lock/unlock/submit the test for all students. The lock icon by each student's name locks/unlocks/submits the test for the individual student.

  • Lock - Locks a student from the test if they have not submitted their test.
  • Unlock - Unlocks a student from the test if they had been locked out of a test by the educator OR if they have submitted their test and need to be let back into the test.
  • Submit - Locks the student from the test and, if using Imagine Learning curriculum, activates the sequencer to place students on their learning path. Please note, upon completing the test and exiting, students are prompted to submit their test.

Note: You must have "Write" or "Read-Only" permission to the test library in order to lock/unlock students. (see Library Builder, click Edit, and from there the access level is listed in step 4) Users with "Results Only" permission will see the locking status but cannot lock/unlock the student's test.

Pause/Restart

If the test was scheduled as a timed test, the teacher may pause and restart the test as needed.

Name

The student's name. A check mark by the student's name means they have completed the assessment.

Earned Points

The total number of points the student has earned out of the total number of points possible and the percentage since the last refresh.

Clock

Displays the time the student started the test, ended the test, and total test duration. Duration is measured as the time between starting the first test item and the last recorded answer. If the student takes a test over more than one day, the start and end times will reflect the day and time respectively, and the duration will add the amount of time spent on each day.

Test Timer

  • The timer starts when the student accesses the test online. From that moment, the timer will countdown to zero, even if the student exits the test. If Allow Pause was checked during scheduling, both the student and the teacher will have the ability to pause the timer. This is the only way to pause the timer once the countdown has started.
  • When the student pauses, the timer is paused and they will be redirected to the Student Center. They can re-enter the test at any time to restart the timer.
  • When the teacher pauses, the timer is paused and the student is redirected to the Student Center. The student will not be able to re-enter the test until the timer is restarted.
  • When the teacher restarts the timer, the timer will start clocking time again once the student re-enters the test. The instructor controls pausing the test through the Test Monitoring page using the Unpause/Pause all and to Pause/Unpause each individual student's test.

Letter/Number

Displays how the student answered the test item or the points the student earned for that test item. Each cell is color coded to reflect the: Correct Answer, Incorrect Answer, Partial Credit, Ready for Scoring, and Not Answered.

Item Number

Displays how the student answered the test item or the points the student earned for that test item. Each cell is color coded to reflect the: Correct Answer, Incorrect Answer, Partial Credit, Ready for Scoring, and Not Answered.
