Adding a MyPath Assessment Window

District Administrators can set and edit the start and end dates of assessment windows. Students are prompted to take the MyPath Assessment multiple times during the year to allow the learning path to adjust based on student progress

An assessment window start date can only be edited if the window hasn't opened. An assessment window end date can only be edited if the window hasn't closed. Once the testing window date has been closed, it cannot be reopened. For example, if an assessment window ends on November 30, edits must be applied before that date. 

 Note

District Administrators and Educators can add an assessment window. However, only District Administrators can edit the assessment window.

It is recommended that students delay retaking an assessment for 45 days to demonstrate comprehension. For example, students who completed an assessment on October 15 in the first assessment window cannot retest until December 30, even if the second assessment window displays a start date of December 1.

Including three or four assessment windows that are two to three months is advised, to allow time to measure student growth between tests. Assessment windows must be continuous, so when one assessment window closes, the next window begins the next day.

  3. Select the time and day for which assessments are available for students to access. One hour is the minimum length students can take an assessment. This allows restricting students from taking an assessment outside of school hours. The time of day available is based on the timezone displayed on this page. Timezones are managed in your organization's settings.
