Before assigning tests, your pupil records will need to be set up in MARK. If you need guidance on how to do this, please go here.
To assign a test to a pupil, group of pupils or class, log into MARK and click on Interactive Tests either on the test logo:
Or you can select 'Interactive Tests' in the left-hand navigation bar:
If any interactive tests have been set up in the past, they will be listed on the calendar. To set an interactive test either click on the date you wished to set this live, or the test logo:
You will now be taken to a step-by-step wizard for setting up a test. You will be prompted to select the title of the test, the specific paper you wish to set, the date you wished to make the test available, and the class/group you wished to assign the test too.
Selecting 'Preview in a new window' will allow you to review all the questions in a test; simply close the window to return to the assigning screen. When previewing a test the time will not be set to the individual test time but an example value.
Once you've chosen the test and paper, the dialogue will update to show you how many interactive test credits your school has. Please note that these credits can be used by any teacher for that test. If you haven’t got any credits (or need some more) you can click on 'Buy more' to be taken to their purchasing pages.
If you have enough credits it will prompt you to select your pupils and click 'Assign Test'.
You can remove pupils from the list and you can also assign extra time to individual pupils. It is advisable to only assign to one Class or Group at a time to allow quick access to the marksheets area from this screen (see our article on managing interactive test assignments)
Please note: if you make a mistake, you will be able to edit the assignment later to either make changes or if no pupils have taken the test, you will also be able to delete the assignment completely. Any unused credits will be returned to your balance if you delete a test or remove pupils from a test.
Once assigned, the dialogue box will close and your test assignment will be created and added to the calendar.
