For progress monitoring measures, the date a student takes an online test is the date it is recorded into the system. If a test was taken online, the system records the date it was administered. If the student takes a paper and pencil test, the date the student scores are recorded into the system is the date it will be noted unless it is manually adjusted at the time the scores are entered. Once the students scores are entered and saved, the date the test was taken cannot be altered.
For instance, say your class has taken a test today and you enter all of their responses into the system. You notice one student’s assessment scores were not added at the time the other scores were and it is now two days later. So, how do you back-date a progress monitoring test? Login to your account and go to the Measures tab and select a grade and a measure. To the right of the measure name there is column called Paper/Pencil. Select enter scores and assign the measure to this student. When you see the scoresheet there will be a box called “Date the student took the measure”. This date automatically defaults to the current date. You will need to change this date to reflect when the test was actually taken. This step is crucial for the data to be plotted correctly on the graph in the Reports section. Enter the correct date, record the student responses, then make sure to click on the Save button when you are through. The adjusted date, with the student’s responses/score will appear in the Reports section.
Now if you have already entered the student responses and forgot to adjust the date prior to saving the responses, you will have to delete the existing measure/scores and re-enter the material with the correct date. Before you delete anything, make sure you have a copy of the student responses you want to enter (if not make sure to copy the student responses before deleting).
To delete a progress monitoring measure, first login to your account and click on the “Measures” tab. Make sure to click on the grade of the student whose test is being deleted, then scroll down to the test measure.
After locating the test name, look to the right where there is a column labeled, “Enter Scores.” Click on this then choose the group name. Click “Go,” then find the student’s name. To the right of the student name you will see a “Save” button and underneath that, the word “Delete.” Click on the word delete and a drop down window will appear at the top of the page asking you if you are certain you want to permanently delete this measure for this student.” Click “OK” and the test is deleted. Make sure to click on the “Save” button when through. Once you remove a score, you will not be able to get it back and the old score will be removed from the system.
Now re-enter the student scores by logging in to your account and going to the “Measures” tab then 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. Click on this. A pop-up window will appear. Select the group name. Make sure to adjust the date the student’s took the measure to reflect the date the test was originally taken (otherwise the system will default to the current date), then fill in the student responses or scores. Make sure to select the Save button when you are finished entering the scores.
