I need to be able to test students both manually and online. Can your program do this?
We do have both hard copy AND online access to student testing. We realize the need for both. In fact when you go to administer a test you have the option to either print out the pdf form of the test and take it manually or administer it online. With the manual option, you input the student test responses into a scoresheet, available to the teacher. The answer key is embedded into the program code so it will automatically score the student responses for you and graph the results in the Reports section. In our Deluxe and District options, where there is a benchmark feature, these tests do have test keys.
Here is a way to see how that works and you can do this for free. First, create an easyCBM Lite account. It is free to create and use and there is no catch or obligation to keeping it. Here you would add a sample student to your account and print off a test. Choose answer responses then enter those responses into the scoreshiit. Here is how you do that:
Whether you are choosing the Lite or Teacher Deluxe version of easyCBM, the first step is to create your own account. Start by going to
http://www.easycbm.com and click on the “Register” link button located in the “Teachers Login” box near the bottom right-hand side of the screen.After you click on the register button, you will be directed to the “Teacher Account Registration” form. Please complete the form, then click the green Register button at the bottom of the page. If your registration is complete the system will let you know. If you do not see this confirmation upon registration, like the example below, you have not created a new account.
The easyCBM system automatically creates and sends an email to the email address specified during account creation. In most cases, users will receive this email within a few minutes. In some cases, a spam filter may block this email. If half an hour has passed and you still haven’t received the login email, please check your spam filter for the message. If this fails, set your filter to allow emails from: firstname.lastname@example.org.Here is how to take a manual test and enter it into the system
1. Add a student to your account, login and click on the “Students” tab. In the column on the right marked Students, click on the + button. A pop-up “Create Student” window will appear. Fill in the student information, then click the Create button in the lower right-hand side corner of the box.
2. Print off a test. Go to the measures tab and choose a grade and then a test.
3. Enter student responses into the system. To manually enter student scores/responses, go to the “Measures” tab and click on the grade of the test you want to enter (the numbered box located just to the right of the header “Grade”).
Now scroll down the page until you locate the name of the assessment you wish to administer. On the right-hand side you will see a “Enter Scores” link. A pop-up window will appear. Select the group name, then a scoresheet will appear. Fill in the student responses or scores. Make sure to select the Save button when you are finished entering the scores. The program will score the responses and then the results will be graphed in the Reports section.
4. Go to the Report Tab, then the Individual's tab, click on a student name and then scroll down the page to view the scored and graphed results.
You will notice below the graphed scored results, the option to view the student responses in test form (like the students took manually) with correct and incorrect responses. This you could print off and keep or share with the students.
