Checking student status for the Placement Test or Benchmark Test

As your students begin the Placement Test or Benchmark Test, you can check their testing status. Administrators can check the student status for any student in their school or district.  Educators can only check the status for students who are assigned to them. 

 Note

Students take the embedded Placement Test just once—the first time they log in to Imagine Language & Literacy. This test is enabled by default and cannot be disabled. Once students begin the Placement Test, the test window for them to complete it will never close. By default, Benchmark tests are enabled.

    Students can have one of these testing statuses:

    Status Description
    Eligible Students If your students are taking the Benchmark Test, this is the number of students who are eligible to take it. Students are eligible to take the Benchmark Test if at least 93 days have passed since they completed the Placement Test. 
    Completed Your student completed the Placement Test or Benchmark Test for the test window you selected.
    In Progress Your student started the Placement Test or Benchmark Test during the test window you selected but has not finished it. Once a student begins a Benchmark Test they will have 28 days to complete it, even if they begin the test on the last day of the test window. Students can start and complete the Placement Test at any time.
    Not Started Your student is eligible to take the Placement Test or Benchmark Test for the test window you selected but has either not started it or the Benchmark Test has been disabled.
    Expired Your student started the Benchmark Test during the test window you selected but did not finish it within 28 days. Students can start and complete the Placement Test at any time and the test window will never expire.
