What is the placement test?

When a new student starts playing the game, we put them in a placement test to determine which is the right material for them. The test acts as a diagnostic assessment and  will consist of a series of questions on a variety of skills. As soon as the student starts to struggle with the material they're receiving, we'll place them in the appropriate grade based on their results.  

How will I know when a student has completed the placement test? 

A student's placement test results can  be viewed on their teacher's dashboard using the "Diagnostic Test Results" widget. While in progress, the student's status will be listed as "Test in Progress". Once complete the widget will display the grade the student has been placed in.
