We strongly suggest students complete their pre-assessment within one 45-60 minute session for test validity purposes.
However, if students need to resume their pre-assessment at a later point, we do save their answers and they can return to complete their assessment at any time.
Students simply need to return to their My Assignments page and click on their pre-assessment assignment. They will be prompted to indicate their testing location each time they open their pre-assessment and must answer this question before they can proceed.
The pre-assessment can also be unsubmitted from its Dashboard or Performance Data page if a student accidentally submits before completing all of the questions. You should not unsubmit to allow a student to receive a higher score.
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.
