Welcome to another brief tutorial discussing Pearson access next training site. In this tutorial we’re going to take a look at how we pick our testing sessions. We have learned how to log in,now we’ve logged in.
What do we do now? We’re going to look for that big testing icon in the center of your screen,you’re going to click the drop down menu and click sessions. At this point there are a number of different ways to find our session,the easiest way to do this is to click on the field that says name starts with,we’re going to type in the name of your testing session which is generally your name.
For example if I were Mr. Demons,I’m going to simply type in Demons and click search, you’re going to find there are two testing sessions for Mr. demons and his students,there are an ELA assessment and also a math assessment. For demonstration purposes,we’re going to click on the box next to Demen ELA and then when I click on the white hyperlink that says go to students in sessions.
Now on the left hand side,I’m going to click on Mr. demons name and this gives us access to his class. We now have the green start menu which will start his test. The Downloads resource button will give us access to student testing tickets,these are primarily going to be printed for you but in case you needed access to them,that’s where you would find that.
Now if you scroll down,this would be the list of your actual students,in this instance we have generic students generated,but during the real part test the students names would be added here.
On the right hand side,you would see the actual units that were being tested. This is slightly different than what we saw on the part test last year.
I am going to give you an example of the different look of a test. Once it has been started,I’m going to click on test three ELA,this is a practice test that I’ve already begun. There are three units to this assessment and the first unit has already been unlocked. Unlike last year where we had seal codes,in order for students to access the test,the test itself would have to be unlocked,this makes it possible for student to access the test without having to use the seal code.
Now I’m going to scroll down so you can see that unit 1 has been unlocked and this student hasn’t started the assessment yet,it says ready and there’s no lock here. If we look at unit 2 you’ll see that there’s a lock next to the ready button which would make it impossible for that student to start that test.
I’m going to scroll back to the top,once we start our test,it’s going to look like this with all three or four units or two units locked. Now we have to start our assessment for the day so we’re going to unlock that test for the day and now students have access to it.
Now if you notice in the color coding here,we have one gray student one yellow student one red student which means the grey student hasn’t begun the assessment yet. During this test that student did not show up and therefore did not start the unit. The yellow student has been resumed because at some point the student exited the test for whatever reason and now you had to resume that student. The student to the right is in red because they exited the test.
Now I want to show you this. If a student exits the test during the test for whatever reason such as an emergency or technical difficulty,if you need to resume the student,all you would have to do is to click on the arrow next the word accident and drop down to resume. When you drop down to the resume menu,you can click resume,now the student has been resumed,the student can now log in and continue their test.
I want to give you another example,in another class a student completed their test. Their color code is blue,during testing your students are going to be gray yellow red blue,if they’re actively taking the test,they would be green. In this instance I don’t have any students actively testing.
This is how you would manage your class,once you’ve accessed your sessions,at the end of the assessment for each unit,you need to make sure that your students are all marked in blue meaning you don’t have any students in red or in green when the unit concludes.
If there is an emergency and a student had to exit without completing their test,that student would be in red,if any student did not show up that day and did not partake in the assessment,then that student would be gray. Under normal circumstances you need every single student to be marked in blue at the end of each unit assessment. That concludes this short tutorial on students and sessions and managing your sessions in pearson access next training site.
