Can I edit my assessment grade scale or periods after they’ve been set up?

Can we change the grade set once the assessment is set up?

You may find you're unable to mark or analyse assessments or set up School Assessment Measures based on the grade scale you want. 

You aren't able to change the default grade scale for an Ad Hoc or Summative assessment once the assessment has been set up (added to your Assessment Framework). What you will need to do will depend on whether you have already begun using the assessment.

  • If you have not yet recorded any assessment marks, delete the assessment from your Assessment Framework and Annual Policy using these instructions: Deleting an Assessment. You will then need to set up the assessments again with the correct grade set.
  • If you have already begun recording assessment marks, you will need to decide whether to replace the assessment entirely or to stop using this assessment and set up a new one for use moving forwards. See what you'll need to do below.
Replace the assessment

We recommend this option if you started using the assessment this year.

  1. Export any marks that you have already input from the Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Export page so so they are not lost.
  2. Set up the assessment again with the correct grade set.
  3. Add your assessment marks to the new assessment.
  4. Delete the old incorrect assessment from your Annual Policy and Framework using these instructions: Deleting an Assessment.
Set up a new assessment

As it would take a lot of time to back-fill marks, we recommend this option if you have already been using the assessment for a while.

  1. Export any marks that you have already input this year from the Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Export page so so they are not lost.
  2. Set up a new assessment with the correct grade set.
  3. Add your assessment marks for this year into the new assessment.
  4. Remove the old assessment from this year's Annual Policy but do not delete the assessment from your Assessment Framework. Follow the first part of this article only: Deleting an Assessment.

For past years, you will be able to use the old assessment. For the current year onwards, you can use the new assessment for analysis etc.

 

 

Can we change the assessment periods once the assessment is set up?

You may find you're unable to add assessment marks for all your data drops if you have set up your assessment with the wrong assessment period frequency. 

You aren't able to change the assessment periods for an Ad Hoc or Summative assessment once the assessment has been added to your Annual Policy. What you will need to do will depend on whether you have already begun using the assessment.

  • If you have not yet recorded any assessment marks, remove the assessment from this year's Annual Policy but do not delete the assessment from your Assessment Framework. Follow the first part of this article only: Deleting an Assessment. You will then need to add the assessment to your Annual Policy again with the correct assessment periods.
  • If you have already begun recording assessment marks, you will need to decide whether you want to change the assessment periods for all past years the assessment has run as well. See what you'll need to do below.
Set up again for this year

We recommend this option if you started using the assessment this year.

  1. Export any marks that you have already input from the Students > Assessments > Summative Tracking > Export page so so they are not lost.
  2. Remove the assessment from this year's Annual Policy but do not delete the assessment from your Assessment Framework. Follow the first part of this article only: Deleting an Assessment.
  3. Add the assessment to your Annual Policy again with the correct assessment periods.
  4. Add your assessment marks to the new assessment.
