What to expect after the student signs in the first time….
  1. Students will take an initial screener for proficiency-level placement. This screener is a broad measurement tool. The screener consists of 8 -16 questions. 
  2. Once the screener is complete, students will be given a Math and ELA option in their Dashboard.
  3. When the student clicks Math or ELA, a series of rectangles labeled with the grade level based on the screener results, and the term: For example-
    • Math 6 Diagnostic A (Pre/LP) - Diagnostic A Post
    • Math 6 Diagnostic B  (Pre/LP) - Post Diagnostic B Post
    • Math 6 Diagnostic C (Pre/LP)  - Post Diagnostic C Post 
  4. The student selects the Pre Diagnostic A rectangle. The Prediagnostic is a very detailed assessment and can be very long.  Students should take their time and answer each question to the best of their ability.
  5. Once the student completes Math 6 Diagnostic A, a checkmark will appear in the Math 6 Diagnostic A rectangle.
  6. After the completing the diagnostic, students will be assigned activities relative to their determined weaknesses.
  7. Language Arts works the same way.
