No, teachers do not have to grade anything for the CommonLit Pre-Assessment. As soon as your students submit their tests, we will provide you with their overall scores and multiple choice percentages per standard. Please note that students do not see their pre-assessments once they submit, and we do not share their scores with students.
You will not immediately see your students' Percentile Rankings. This is because we recalculate percentile scores nightly to account for that day's submissions. We also only calculate and display percentiles and performance groups once we have collected a sufficient amount of valid data for your students (meaning enough CommonLit students in the same grade also took the same test). You will receive a message in your notification bell once this comparative data is available for you to view.
Note: If your district has chosen to purchase CommonLit’s Interim Assessments, you will not have access to the Pre-Assessment feature on CommonLit.org. Instead, you’ll be able to collect baseline data through the first interim assessment that your district administers.
