EdReady Scoring and Test Overview
Number of Questions
Students will see varying numbers of questions: this will be dependent on how many Learning Objectives (LOs) each Topic includes, as well as how many LOs the student has already mastered.
Each time a student encounters a question, EdReady will flag that question as one the student has already encountered. Though they may see similar questions, the student will not see repeated questions until they have completely exhausted the question pool for a Learning Objective.
At the end of the test, the student's status for that Topic (or Unit) will be calculated based on the number of Learning Objectives they have mastered. (There are no calculations based on the number of questions asked/ correct.) You can find more details about EdReady statuses here.
A student’s EdReady score represents the percentage of material they have mastered, calculated by the number of mastered Learning Objectives overall. For example, if a student has earned an EdReady score of 80, they will have mastered 80% of the material on their study path.
There are no scores for individual test activities, but the EdReady score can be used as a high-level representation of the student’s current knowledge levels. Each time students complete a test activity (the initial diagnostic, unit test, or topic test), their EdReady score will be updated to reflect their current overall mastery levels.
Students can see their current status for each Topic and included Learning Objectives on their study path:
LOs are represented by small circles under the Topic name, but the color will indicate the current LO-level status. Students can hover over any circle to see the label.
At the completion of any Topic Test, students will see an on-screen message that lets them know the LOs they have/ not mastered:
Students that do not master a topic after completing a Topic Test will not be able to immediately re-test themselves. Instead, they must visit the Learn resources in order for the Test button to become enabled.
The Topics in the English curriculum are more varied and the topics have more learning objectives (LOs) included than you find in the math curriculum.
To help avoid student frustration towards needing to master an entire topic in a single test activity, each time students complete an English Topic Test in EdReady, they will only be tested on the LOs that have not previously been "Mastered."
This means that students will show mastery of each learning objective only once: once an LO has been mastered on the Initial Diagnostic, a Unit Test, or a Topic Test, the student will not encounter that LO again.
As students test themselves in their study path for math*, the Unit Test and Topic Tests will function in the following way:
- EdReady will ask the student a complex question that tests understanding of several learning objectives (LOs):
- If the student gets the question correct, they earn credit for all covered LOs
- If the student gets the question incorrect, EdReady will follow up with a simple question that tests understanding of one LO, presenting an individual question for each LO the original question had covered.
*English questions each only test a single learning objective
