Create/Edit an Assessment View

Illuminate DnA's assessment view feature allows you to view results from multiple assessments simultaneously. For example, you could see the distribution of how students are scoring (on average) within proficiency bands across the entire district for a particular subject.   For more information on an assessment view's nature, see the "Assessment Overview" lesson. Note: you do not enter scores in an assessment view; rather, scores are entered for assessments, and the assessment view displays these altogether.
