A common practice that teachers use to maximize their subscription is reusing quizzes to make a pre-test, and a post-test for a particular unit, lesson plan, objective, or set of standards.
To create a pre-test you will add the questions that pertain the specific lessons you are teaching, from the CAERT Question Bank. To learn how to create a quiz, read our blog on creating and assigning quizzes. Most importantly, name your quiz "Pre-Test" Unit X or Pre-"Name of Unit X."
The post-test can be created using an existing quiz.
First, create a new quiz. Most importantly, name your quiz "Post-Test" Unit X or Post-"Name of X Unit." Upon creating the quiz, you will be directed to the page to select questions from your quiz. There, you will find the question menu on the right side of the screen. Click the first option “Select from Existing Quiz”. Next, use the drop down menu to select the name of the quiz from which you wish to add questions.
Finally, select the boxes next to each question, and then click the “Add Selected Questions to Quiz” button.
Utilizing the "Current School Year Report", you can view the students' scores from the quizzes/tests they have taken, between July 1 and June 30. The two most popular reports are:
Quiz Question Summaries- This report shows how frequently a question is answered correctly or incorrectly to demonstrate validity and reliability and to indicate what concepts might require additional reinforcement.
Quiz Scores - This report lists all of the individual quizzes you have given to your students. Clicking on the name of any quiz will bring up a page listing the student scores for that quiz. It will also show if a student has taken the quiz more than once.
You can click on the View Student Quiz Summary column to see each individual submission by a student.
