Constructed Response Assessments – 2 NEW Enhancements!

Scoring constructed response questions in CTLS Assess has just gotten a little easier with 2 new enhancements!

Now, teachers can close an assessment in Rubric View from the class roster.  Remember, scores will not post to Synergy until the assessment is closed.  When you have entered and saved your rubric scores individually, click on the class, and you should see a list of all students and their scores for confirmation.  Remember, you can change the way your class is listed by clicking Class Schedule, Period, or Teacher.Click Save score (s) and then you can click on Close Test for This Class

If you close an assessment before entering in all of the student rubric scores, or need to make a correction to a score, you can now REOPEN an assessment with constructed response questions.  In the Results Widget, click on the score icon.  From the list of Options, select Reopen Test for ALL Classes.  

Your assessment will now appear at the top of your Digital Assessments list.  Click on the score icon and choose Rubric Score Entry.

 

Comparing Results

In CTLS Assess, teachers can use the Compare Tab to view data on two different assessments that share at least one common standard. You can see in the example below, the Unit 4 Pre- and Post-tests assessed two common standards. Your questions on the assessments do not have to be identical because the data is derived from the standards.

Once you click on the Dtl for a standard, you can view comparison data on each student. Data found under the Compare Tab is not only useful for instructional groups, but also RTI and parent-teacher conferences.
