Managed Assessment Settings
As a member or admin of an Assessment Team, you can enable the settings on a Managed Assessment that it retains when distributed to students across sections in your school. These settings are universal in that they apply to all students who take the test. If you make changes to the settings on the assessment within AMP, the settings are reflected automatically when a student begins a new attempt, resumes an attempt, or views a submitted attempt for that assessment.
- Attempt Limit: Specify the number of times students can take this assessment. There is a maximum of 20 attempts.
- View Submissions: Allow students to view their own submissions, or their submissions plus the correct answers, or select No to prevent students from viewing their submissions. This setting is "No" by default.
- Question Point Value: Hide or display how many points each question is worth for students taking the assessment.
- Randomize Order: Enable Randomize Order to ensure that each student sees the questions on the assessment in a different and randomly selected order.
Note: This option is different from Adding Randomized Questions from a question bank to an assessment, which randomly selects a given number of questions from the pool of questions in your associated managed question bank.
- Time Limit: Set a time limit for the assessment. Students who have not finished before the time limit is up have their assessments automatically submitted with the answers they have completed.
- Flag for Review: Allow students to flag an item for review while they take the assessment. Learn more in this article.
- Eliminate Choices: Allow students to eliminate answer choices on certain question types. Learn more in this article.
- Show Calculator: Enable a basic or scientific calculator for students to access during the entire assessment. Learn more in this article.
- Show Ruler: Enable a 15 cm or 6 inch ruler for students to access during the entire assessment. Learn more in this article.
- Show Protractor: Enable a basic or scientific calculator for students to access during the entire assessment. Learn more in this article.
- Text to Speech: Enable a toolbar with a Text to Speech function that displays within the assessment delivery experience. Learn more in this article.
- Highlight Text: Allow students to use the highlighting tool to emphasize key information in the text they are reading while answering questions on an assessment. Instructors can’t see highlights, and they do not persist after students submit their attempts. Learn more in this article.
- Show Notepad: Enable a notepad for students to access during the entire assessment.
- Question Review: All students who take an assessment have the option to review the questions and change the answers before submitting. This is automatically enabled for all Managed Assessments and cannot be turned off.
- Resumable: All managed assessments are resumable. This is automatically enabled for Managed Assessments and cannot be turned off.
- Instructor Preview: Allow instructors who are admins in the courses to which the assessment is distributed to preview the managed assessment as it appears to students.
