Certification Pre-Tests


What is Pre-Testing?

Teachers now have the option to enable a pre-test before the students can access the certification curriculum. This pre-test is meant to assess individual student’s current knowledge and to allow for additional reporting options such as student or class growth. The growth report will never go below zero nor will it display negative numbers.

Once enabled, pre-testing cannot be turned off

If pre-testing was accidentally turned on; it cannot be turned off. The teacher will have to create a new certification playlist course and make certain not to enable pre-testing.

New students

If a student joins you and pre-testing is enabled; the student must complete the pre-test assessment before they will be allowed to access the rest of the certification curriculum.
