Standardized Test Prep

  • Only a single test can be active at one time.  These cannot overlap.
  • Provided class wide by default, no option to exclude students.
  • Detailed reporting (Show's questions asked, and answers given if incorrect)
  • All skills provided by grade and curriculum, no option to modify
  • Date limit of 30 days
  • No hints (Test style atmosphere)
  • No adaptive elements.  Student will encounter all questions in the skill if assigned
  • There is no grade restriction for the class.  If applied through the planner, all students within the class should receive the test prep
  • The student can 'fail out' of the test prep if too many questions are answered incorrectly in succession.  If this is the case, they will not be prompted with any further questions from that specific test prep.
