Make-Up Assessments - New Portal Beta

August 1, 2017 Rex McWilliams

If an Exam Taker is not able to sit for an assessment at the scheduled time, you may elect to give that Exam Taker an opportunity to make up the missed exam.  This document outlines two different methods for setting up and administering make-up assessments. 

 

Step 1: Remove the Missing Students

When a student is going to miss, or has missed, an assessment on the original scheduled exam date, it is considered best practice to remove the assessment from the student’s computer. This can be done automatically using the Remote Assessment Deletion feature, or manually by instructing the Exam Taker(s) to reverse download the exam. Afterward, you can choose to have the Exam Taker re-download the same assessment at a later date.

1. If the student had already downloaded the assessment within Examplify and Remote Assessment Deletion was not enabled on the exam, instruct the student to Remove the Exam Download within Examplify.

2. Within the portal, navigate to the assessment, and select the Post Settings sub-tab.       

3. Click the # selected button.

4. Remove the student(s) that did not show up to take their exam. Click Save. These students will now no longer see the exam available for download within Examplify.

 

 

Option 1: Create a Linked Assessment

Creating a linked assessment will not allow you to edit any of the question content, nor options to enable. You will be able to create a new password, and select the group of students that will see the exam available for download.

1. Begin by navigating to the appropriate course.

2. Open the assessment.

3. Create a Linked Assessment.* 

4. Create a new assessment password, select the students to post to, as well as other posting settings. We recommend utilizing the remote assessment deletion option, as well as strict download start and end times for this make-up exam.  Post the assessment, and notify the students that need to take the make-up exam of the new posting, and its assessment password.

* You will not be able to edit any of the question content or assessment settings when creating a Linked assessment. Note, this method will allow you to run a Combined report with the original posting and the Linked assessment.

 

 

Option 2: Create an Unlinked Assessment

1. Begin by navigating to the appropriate course.

2. Open the assessment.

3.  Create an Unlinked Assessment.

4. If required, altar the questions on the assessment, and change any assessment options. Create a new assessment password, select the students to post to, as well as other posting settings. We recommend utilizing the remote assessment deletion option, as well as strict download start and end times for this make-up exam.  Post the assessment, and notify the students that need to take the make-up exam of the new posting, and its assessment password.

* You will be able to edit all of the assessment options, content, and post settings. Note, this method will not allow you to run a Combined report for the original posting, and the Unlinked assessment.
