In this video, we will show you how to create an assessment.

To create an assessment, you must be a portal educator and be signed in to

First, click on “Create an Assessment” or click on “Assessments” in the toolbar followed by “+ New Assessment”.

We now need to fill in the assessment details. We are gonna create an assessment with the title “Combining Like Terms”.

Now, we need to choose the date and start time of the assessment; we are gonna leave this as the default so it will be live as soon as we send it. For the due date and time, we want our assessment to be live for a week, so we’ll adjust the date as required and leave the time as the default.

The subject is mathematics, so we’ll select this by clicking “Choose Subject” and then “Mathematics”.

Now, we can either send the assessment to a whole class and/or to some individual students. We are gonna send the assessment to our transfiguration class, so we will select this. If we wanted to also send the assessment to any students who aren’t registered in the class, we can select them by clicking in the box where it says “Choose Students”; we don’t want to do this now, so we’ll leave this blank.

Once you’re happy that the information has been entered correctly, click “Next Step”.

Now, we need to search for the lessons which contain the appropriate questions for our assessment. We want to create an assessment on “Combining Like Terms”, so where it says “Search Lessons”, we’ll search for this.

We’ll now see a list of possible lessons to choose from. The lesson that we want to select is the top one, so we’ll click this.

Now, we can see all the questions from this lesson. The green box highlights the answer for each question, and if the question has a set of arrows with “1/10” next to it, this means that the question has multiple instances that you can use. If you click the arrows, you can toggle through the instances.

Look through the list of all questions and choose those that you think are most appropriate for your students.

We like the first example, so we’ll click “Add” and we’ll see the page update:

“Add” updates to “Remove” with a question counter on the left so that you can keep track of the number of questions in the assessment, and you’ll see “Lessons In Use” appear on the left-hand side with a question counter on the right showing you the number of questions chosen from this particular lesson.

If you selected a question with multiple instances, the next instance will have appeared below the first, so you can then also add this.

We are not going to select the second instance but are going to choose the second question by clicking “Add” again. This is another question with 10 instances, so the next instance has appeared below, and the question counters have updated.

Continue choosing the questions that you like until you are happy. Please be aware that you can add up to 50 questions.

Note that, with many of our lessons, you can reveal more questions by scrolling to the bottom and clicking “Show More”.

If you also decide that you would like to look at questions from a different lesson, scroll back to the top and you can always search again.

For example, we could search for “Simplifying Expressions” and click on the “Product Rule” lesson.

If we add a question from this lesson, the question counter will increase as normal, but we’ll also see the new lesson appear under the “Lesson in Use” report.

If you change your mind, you can always remove any questions by clicking “Remove”.

Once you have finalised the questions that you want to add, scroll to the bottom of the page and either click “Save as Draft”, if you want to come back to it later, or click “Next Step”. We’ll click “Next Step”.

Now, at the top of the page, you’ll see all the summary information for the assessment including the title, number of questions, the students to which the assessment is being sent, the start and due date, and the subject.

You’ll also see a list of all the questions that you have chosen. If you want to make any adjustments to the order of the questions, you can do this by clicking the single up or down arrows; or if you want to change the order more significantly, you can pick up and drop the question using the blue set of arrows.

Once you are satisfied with the position of the questions, head to the bottom of the page and you can either go back to the question-adding stage by clicking “+ Add More Questions”, save the assessment as a draft (if you like to edit it later), or you can send it to your students by clicking “Send”.

We are going to send our assessment.

You’ll now be forwarded to the “Assessments” page, and you’ll see your new assessments appear in the list of all your assessments. You’ll see the summary information about the assessments including the status of the assessments (you can see ours is now “In Progress”, which means it’s currently live for the students), and you can see live reports on the assessments by clicking “View Reports”. This will be empty up until one of your students submits some questions from their assessment.

Note that when the assessment deadline is reached, the status of the assessment will update to “Closed”.

If we head over briefly to look at a student account, they will find their new assessment by clicking on “Assessments” in the toolbar, and their most recent assessment will be found at the bottom of the list.

To start answering the questions, they will need to click “Start” on the right-hand side of the table, and to submit their answers, they will need to select or submit their chosen answer and then click “Save”.

Before leaving the page, they should then always click “Submit” at the bottom.

But please note that if the assessment deadline has not passed, they will always have the ability to continue working through the assessment.
