  1. On the Assessments page, use the Subject drop-down list to select what types of assessments to see: Reading or Math.


       In order to see Science assessments, please select Reading as the subject.

  2. The tables on the page will show all assessments that match the subject you selected. To view a specific published assessment, enter either the name of the assessment or the name of its owner in the "Find assessment by name or owner" field above the Published Assessments table . The table will be filtered to show only assessments that match the information you have entered. Note: You can enter your own name in the field to view only your own assessments.

  3. In the row for a draft assessment (upper table), in the Actions column, select:

    Edit to edit a draft assessment. Only a draft assessment that you choose to share can be edited by the user or a district administrator. A district administrator can edit any draft assessment that is shared with either the district or a school. The link will change to View if you are not allowed to edit the draft. (You can also edit or view an assessment by selecting its name.)

    Clone to create a copy of the draft assessment. Regardless of who the owner of the draft is, you will be the owner of the copy, and you can edit it as if you had created it yourself.

    Publish to publish an assessment—the assessment will move down to the Published Assessments table. Once published, an assessment can no longer be edited (although you can clone it and then edit the clone, if you wish); published assessments also cannot be deleted (see below). It may take a short while to publish an assessment; "Publishing..." will appear in the Actions column until publication is complete (as shown in the "Endless Summer" row above).

    • A draft assessment can always be published by its owner.
    • A draft assessment that is shared with a school or district can be published by its owner or a district administrator.

    Delete to delete a draft assessment that you own and that you no longer wish to keep. A district administrator can delete an assessment that is shared with either the district or a school. This link will not be shown if you are not allowed to delete the draft.

    Deletion cannot be undone, so be very certain you no longer need the draft before deleting it!

    In the row for a published assessment (lower table), in the Actions column, select:

    Assign to begin the process of assigning an assessment to students.

    View to view a published assessment. Published assessments cannot be edited (although you can clone one and edit the clone, if you wish). You can also view an assessment by selecting its name.

    Clone to create a copy of a published assessment. You will be the owner of the copy, and you can edit it as if you had created it yourself (it will appear in the Draft Assessments table above).

    A published assessment that the owner has chosen to share can be assigned, viewed, or cloned.

    Each table shows a maximum of 100 assessments. If there are more than 100 assessments that meet your search criteria, a navigation control will appear above the table indicating how many assessments there are. Use the arrows on the right to move forwards and backwards through the assessments.

To begin making a new assessment, select Create Assessment in the upper-right corner of the page. This will take you to the first step: selecting a subject.
