DnA: Enhancements

DnA: Enhancements

[Enhancement] Skills Assessments- You can select the drop-down menu via clicking the arrow next to the “Test” button for students. From there, you can select whichever question groups or individual questions you’d like to assess during the session.

For more information on Skills Assessments, click here.

[Enhancement] Skills Assessment- You can review and finish a student’s assessment at any point during the assessment. This will give the teacher the option to classify the partial administration as a full attempt.

[Enhancement] Online Testing- This one is a big deal. Users were deleting Online Testing rosters without understanding the implications of doing so. We wanted to help folks understand the implications, so we added a dialog box that outlines the trade-offs.

[Enhancement] Online Testing- Finish Button- Some students thought “Finish” was used to submit their answers for a question and not the entire assessment. Changing it to “Finish Test” makes it more clear. Happy testing!

[Enhancement] State/Known Data- The State/Known Data Import Log page has been given a new feature that allows users to delete data associated with an import job on the log page. For more information, see the help document here.

ISI: New Feature and Enhancements

[Enhancement] Student Demographics Page- Student Cell Phone is now an available field.

[Enhancement] State Reporting- SPRG tool has been updated. For more information, see the help document here.

[Enhancement] CAL Grants GPA Extract has been updated. It now allows users to now export CAL Grants optional fields for student contact type (and a few others) for better matching. For more information, see the help document here.

[Enhancement] State Reporting- WA CTE Pathways- There are new CTE requirements in WA state to designate course and credit equivalency for CTE pathways. They allow students to earn cross credit for taking courses in various pathways across the state. For more information, see the help document here.

[Enhancement] Louisiana 504- There are new LA state requirements around tracking 504 accommodations (i.e. braille, large print, etc.). So, we created a 504 sub-page to track the new data, as well as tie multiple 504 disabilities to one 504 plan.
