The ‘Retain Student’ feature is intended to be used at the end of a school year when a student is being ‘held back’ for another year rather than progressing to the next grade level.
Retaining a student will archive all test submissions for their current grade level, effectively allowing that student to be reassessed with those same-grade benchmark and progress monitoring measures. Archived test submissions will appear on their individual report, benchmark history, and on their student record. If a student is to be properly retained multiple times, this action must be performed each year they are retained (regardless of grade or current retention status).
To retain a student so they can retake measures, login to your account and locate the student’s name in the “Students” column. To the right of their name is a blue magnifying glass icon. Click on the icon and a summary list of assessments for that student will appear in a drop down window. Scroll down the summary list to the bottom and you will find the box called Retentions. Click on the Retain Student button to activate this feature.
