Step 2: Test Event Details

Create Event 0319

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.

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.
