Add, display, or edit site-specific tests

SiD is preloaded with MDE/NRS approved tests. Preloaded tests cannot be edited or removed. However, each ABE program can add other assessments to the Test menu on the Students or Classes>Assessment screens.

Locally added tests do not need NRS approval. They cannot be used to set an NRS entry educational functioning level or prove an NRS level gain. They are not subject to the "40 instructional hours between tests" rules.

An Admin level login is required to create and edit site-specific tests.

Add a site-specific test

  1. On the Admin tab>Site Specific Tests, click the Site Specific Tests link.
  2. In the Test column, look at the rows below Create Test for the name of the test you want.
    • If the name of the test is in the list, go to step 3.
    • To set up a test that does not appear in the list: complete the Create Test Name and optional Test Series Name fields, then click the Save Test button. The name of your test will appear as a row in the Test column. 
  3. In the Test Subjects column, look at the rows below Create Subject for your desired subject.
    • If the subject is already in the list, go to step 4.
    • To set up a new subject: complete the Subject Name fields, then click the Save Subject button. Your newly added subject will appear. 
  4. The Test Forms column is where it all comes together. Choose a Test Name and Test Subject from the menus. Type in a Form Name of your choice, and click Save Form. This will add the new test to the Students>Assessment menu.

Display a site-specific test in the Test menu 

Newly added tests are not automatically visible in the Test menu. To see the new test names, each staff person needs to update their own custom list of tests.
  1. On the Home tab, click the Select Displayed Tests link.180724_select_displayed_tests_Dash.png
  2. From the list of available tests, put a check in front of the test(s) you want to display in your Test menu.

Edit a site-specific test

  2. In the Test Forms column, click on the row with the local test you want to edit.
  3. Make desired changes to the Test, Subject or Form Name fields.
  4. To assign an end date for your custom test, complete the Hide Date field. The test will no longer appear in the Students>Assessment Test menu after this date.
  5. Click the Save Changes button.
