Rules for creating new school screening windows:

  • School screening windows must fall within the current school year.
  • School screening windows can only overlap if they are (a) for different schools or (b) for different activities (see step 4 below). School screening windows cannot overlap district screening windows.
  • A school screening window must be at least 1 day long and can be as long as the entire school year.
  1. Enter a unique name for the screening window in the Screening Name field.

  2. Select the start and end dates for the window. You can either type the range in the Date Range field or select the icon on the right side of the field to open a pop-up calendar where you can select the dates (select Apply on the calendar when you are done).

  3. You will see a list of all the schools you have access to. Check the box for all the schools you want the school screening window to be used in (use the Select All/None box at the top of the list to check/uncheck all the schools at once). If you want to find a specific school, enter its name in the field to the right of the list.

  4. Select the test activities that students will be participating in during the school screening window (use the Select All/None box at the top of the list to check/uncheck all the test types at once).

  5. When you are finished, select Create Window. The window will be added to the school screening windows table; selecting the arrow on the right end of the row will expand it to show the schools, dates, and test types associated with the window.
