Using the Imagine Galileo Bulk Scheduler to schedule a test

The Bulk Scheduler in Imagine Galileo allows District Administrators and School Administrators to schedule grade-level tests, assignments, units, and lesson plans across your organization, at selected schools, and for selected classes, as needed. In order to administer an assessment or assignment in Imagine Galileo, it must be scheduled. Once you have created your test, you can use the Bulk Schedule History to edit your testing dates and other test details.

 Note

Scheduling a test and assignment is based on the library permission (e.g. only District Administrators have Results Only permission to test libraries).

To bulk schedule a test

  7. Select the class you want to assign the test to and the Instructor of Record. By default, the designated classroom teacher is selected. Click Next after selecting the school(s) and Instructor of record.

     Recommendation

    When scheduling a test for under 1000 classes, the Instructor of Record selection is part of the bulk scheduling process. The scheduler may change the default Instructor of Record.

    When scheduling a test for over 1000 classes the scheduler cannot edit the Instructor of Record during the scheduling process. After scheduling the test, the Bulk Schedule History page is accessed and editing (selection) is done.
