Have you seen a question in CTLS Assess from another teacher that you wanted to use in your class, but needed to make a few changes? Well you can now copy that question and save it as your own. Now that the question is yours, you can edit the question and answer choices. You can only copy and edit questions from another teacher, you cannot copy and edit district-level questions, such as Touchstone questions or vendor questions. Just look for the teacher-created icon!
To Copy a Teacher-Created question, right click on the question you want to copy, then choose Copy Question. Make changes to the question and answer choices, then click Save Question.
Did you create assessments during a previous school year? Well, no need to reinvent the wheel! Save time by copying those tests over into the new school year. Follow the directions linked below to locate an assessment from a prior year and create a copy and/or move the assessment to the current school year and subject.
Signing into the CTLS Student Progress Monitoring System has just gotten easier! While we were eating turkey and enjoying time with our family, Technology Services was busy at work creating this new single sign-on feature. When you log into a CCSD device using your login credentials and visit CTLS, you will be signed in automatically. No need to re-enter your CCSD login credentials! This also occurs when logging into the Item Builder tool within CTLS Student Progress Monitoring. As always, in order to protect student privacy, don’t forget to log out of the system when not in use.
