Assess pupil on another level than their own year

Assessing pupils on another level can be useful when a pupil struggles to get through the texts for their own year and you would like to see how the pupil would do on a lower leveled text, but it can also be used to challenge strong readers. 

Some Important details regarding this: 

  • Assessments conducted on another level than the pupils actual year will not be included in the statistics (as a start).
  • We always recommend to first assess the pupil on it's own level before testing another level. This way you will get a result for the pupil to include in the statistics and vital info of how the pupil performs compared to pupils in their own age. 
  • If the pupil is unable to be assessed in its own level, please mark the pupil as an emergent reader as this alternative will be included in the statistics. 
  • The pupil's result when assessed on another level is compared to the year group of the level of the assessment, not the pupil's own year. This is the reason why it is not included in the statistics. 
  • It is perfectly fine to assess pupils in higher levels than their own year as well. Please make sure to assess the pupil in it's own level first in this case too. 

To assess a pupil on another level, simply go to the assessment app and press "Test pupil on another level". Then select which level you would like to assess the pupil on and start the test.

Class list

  • In the class list, the results conducted on another level can either be shown or hidden using a checkbox. 
  • If a pupil has a result on another level, the symbol will show in the Info column, even if that result isn't shown in the list. This is to make it easier to find these assessments. The info column (and all other columns) can be hidden in the "Table columns" dropdown.
