Recording Class Assessment results / creating class assessments

Note: Class Assessments can only be created by teachers for their own students. They are not associated with state or school exams or CBAs. While principals and secretaries have access to the information on them, they exist purely for you as a teacher to use and to keep track of smaller quizzes, tests etc that you assign to your class through the school year. You can use them as once off assessments or create a series of assessments, it's up to you as a teacher.

Creating a new Class Assessment 

  • Go to Assessments > Class Assessments > here you will see an overview of your in class assessments if any exist > click 'Create class assessment
  • Next, follow the steps to enter in the details / criteria for your assessment including which specific students it applies to > hit 'Create class assessment
  • If you select Percentage, you will be given the option of setting your own custom Pass threshold for this assessment. 
  • Once it is created, you can record results straight away if you wish


We have added the description to the Class Assessment overview so you can see which assessment is which at a glance 

Product update: When a student or a parent view their Class Assessment's page, the 'Study Level' and the 'Target Result' fields are now displayed (if you have configured your assessment to include them in the class assessment set up).

Also when any user  (parent, teacher or admin user) clicks 'Actions 'and downloads the class assessment to CSV or PDF, it now displays these fields in the downloaded files too. Below is what the parent or student would see in their Class Assessment Tab.
