District Admins can create mandates within the software that require or exclude certain test items for different grade levels.
If any mandates are added, please communicate to the teachers, as this affects how the Completion Reports are calculated. Required items included in mandate will mark a student as incomplete until data is entered for required items.
Click the System Administrator tab and select Manage Mandates.
A screen will appear listing any mandates applicable to the current district:
To create a new mandate, click Add Mandate +.
The Add Mandate dialog box will appear:
Enter a title for the mandate, start and end dates, whether the test items will be required or not allowed (excluded). Next, choose the test items included in the mandate and the grades to which to apply the mandate. Once finished editing the fields in this box, click Save.
Once the mandate is saved, it will appear in the list of mandates out at the Manage Mandates screen.
Note: If it is desired to remove a mandate at the district level, the mandate can be adjusted to end on a prior date, so that it will no longer apply to future created FitnessGram Test Events.
