Some of my students didn't submit their Free Reading Assessment on time. How can I force submit it for them?

If your district has chosen to purchase Assessment Series in CommonLit School Essentials PRO or School Essentials PRO Plus, you will not have access to the Free Reading Assessment. Instead, you’ll be able to collect baseline data through the first assessment in the Assessment Series. You’ll also have access to a Mid-Year and a Post-Assessment to help you track students’ reading growth throughout the reading year.


If your students did not submit their assessments on time, you can choose to force submit their assessments with all of their existing progress for them.

To submit a student's assessment, go to the assessment's Student Status page. Then, find the student's name, click on Actions under the Actions column, and click Force Submit. Finally, click the teal "Force Submit" button in the window that appears.

When you force submit a student's test, CommonLit will submit whatever answers are currently on their test, and the test will no longer appear on the student's My Assignments page (just as if they had submitted it themselves).
