Printing Assessments (Enterprise)

Instructors in Enterprise accounts can now print tests that are linked to specific students in their courses. This is a great way to deal with a student who missed a test and has to take it at a later date, for example, or if students are unable to take a test online.

To print a test, click the gear icon in the upper-right corner and select Print Test from the menu.

  

Each test that you print has its own unique test ID printed in the lower-left corner. When you're ready to grade the test, go to the Results tab, click View by Student and then View Attempts, and enter the ID for that student's test.


Printing Best Practices

  • Don't print double-sided copies, as the answer key is included and will print on the back of pages.
  • If you print multiple versions of the test, don't update the number of copies in the print tool from your browser.
    For example, printing one copy of a test/quiz with three versions prints the test three times, each with a different order of questions and each with its own answer key.

For more information, review the instructions in this help article.

Print Student Mastery Reports (Enterprise)

Instructors who use the Schoology Mastery Gradebook can now generate and download two different CSV spreadsheets that contain mastery information about their students.

Click the gear icon in the top menu and select:

  • Export Summary for an overview of the report, including student name and IDs, scores for learning objectives, and whether the student displayed master of the objective.
  • Export Detail All Students for a more detailed report, which includes each material that is aligned to an objective.

Schoology Site Migration

In order to provide a better user experience, the Schoology application was migrated from www.schoology.com to app.schoology.com. The www.schoology.com address was reserved for Schoology marketing content.
