Checking student testing completion status for Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmarks


This article does not apply to students taking the embedded Imagine Language & Literacy Benchmark or the NWEA™ MAP® Growth Assessment. It only applies to students taking the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark in Imagine Language & Literacy (IL&L). If you aren't sure which assessment your school is using, read Checking which assessment option your organization is using.

Administrators can check the testing status of groups or classes in their school or district using the recommended Testing Activity tools.  Alternately, Administrators can view class and student testing status as a Teacher by using the recommended Test Monitoring method in the Teachers section.

Teachers can check the testing status of students assigned to begin the Benchmark tests by using the recommended Test Monitoring steps in the Teachers tab. 


Students are required to take an Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark test before logging in to Imagine Language & Literacy for the first time. The data from this test is used to place the student within Imagine Language & Literacy. You can schedule the ELA Benchmark test for your desired testing dates. 

To check the testing status of the students assigned to you:

Administrators Teachers
  1. Log in to Imagine Galileo K-12 Assessment.  
  2. Click Testing Activity

    Select All Schools or select a specific school to view the testing activity. Filter by Test Grade and Student Grade, set your preferred Date Range, and choose which Tests to display. 
  3. Click Run Report.

Troubleshooting student status issues

My student can’t access their test.

Your students can only access their test inside the scheduled testing window that you select. 

  1. Confirm the test is currently scheduled on the Calendar for the student.
  2. The test must be unlocked. Students cannot access locked or submitted tests.
  3. Unlock tests on the Test Monitoring page.
My student receives a message that their test is paused.
This message appears if Allow Pause was enabled and the test timer paused by the Teacher. Students are redirected to the Student Center after pausing the timer and can only return to the test when a Teacher restarts the timer.
My student doesn't have a checkmark next to their name after submitting a test.
A checkmark appears when students respond to all of the test questions. If students in Grades 2 and up submit a test, the test is accepted, even if all items are incomplete. A Teacher can also submit a student’s test from the Test Monitoring page even if the student has not responded to all the questions.
Why are some details and features not available to me on the Test Monitoring page?
The details and features on the Test Monitoring page depend on your role and permissions. For example, some Test Monitoring features are disabled if a test is not scheduled for your class. Some features are also disabled if you have  Read-Only or Write permissions for the test library.
