Reassigning Placement and Benchmark tests in Imagine Language & Literacy

 Caution

This article only applies to organizations who have chosen the default embedded Benchmarks as their placement/assessment method in Imagine Language & Literacy. This article does not apply to students taking the Imagine Galileo ELA Benchmark or the NWEA™ MAP® Growth Assessment. 

If a student receives a Placement test or Benchmark test score that doesn't seem appropriate for their skill level, Administrators and Teachers can reassign that test to any student assigned to them. After reassignment, the student receives a new Placement or Benchmark test the next time they log in to Imagine Language & Literacy.

 Notes

  • You can only reassign a Placement test or Benchmark test for the current testing window.
  • The testing window must still be open; if the window has closed or has been disabled, the tests can't be reassigned.
  • Tests in progress can't be reassigned.
  • Reassigning tests is done on a student-by-student basis.
  • The Reading Level Assessment (RLA) can't be reassigned manually by educators; contact Imagine Learning Product Support to request assistance.

 Caution

Once a student completes a reassigned test, the student's most recent scores for that testing period are removed and cannot be restored.

Reassigning a Placement test will:

  • Invalidate the most recent Placement test score for that test period. The student's most recent Placement test score will display in reports until the student completes the reassigned test.
  • Remove the prior Placement test score from future reports once the new score takes its place.
  • Administer the Placement test to the student the next time they log in.
  • Restart the student in the Imagine Language & Literacy curriculum.

Reassigning a Benchmark test will:

  • Invalidate the most recent Benchmark score for that test period.
  • Remove the most recent Benchmark score for that testing period from any reports.
  • Administer the Benchmark test to the student the next time they log in.
  • Preserve the student's prior progress in the Imagine Language & Literacy curriculum.
