Step 1: Choose Classes

Make sure the classes selected will be assessed with the same test items.


Select the Schools, Teachers and Classes to be included in this event.

Note: If classes do not appear, this means you are not assigned to any classes.  Contact your District Admin for assistance.

Click the Step 2 button at the bottom of this screen.

Step 2: Test Event Details


Test Event Name: Name test events descriptively to ensure they can be identified easily by your administrator. Include school, teacher, age group, and semester. (Example: DemoESName567Spring19)

Dates: Set the start and end dates of the event as close as possible to the actual testing period. Why?

  • The end date calculates a student’s age at the time of the assessment which is used to identify which standards the student is compared to.
  • End date will also appear on the Student Report as the day the student completed the assessment.
  • Data can be entered throughout the school year regardless of end date.

Self Assessment Checkbox: If your students are completing self-assessment, you can select this checkbox to track which tests were self-assessed.


Note: Test events cannot be created for previous school years.

Test Event Type: Select the Test Event Type that best corresponds with your assessment. Pre-test is typically selected for fall testing, post-test for spring, and other if you
test more than twice throughout the school year.

Click Step 3 to continue.

Step 3: Choose Test Items

Note: Do not create multiple test events with one test item each, for example – one PACER test event, Sit-and-Reach test event, etc.
