If your district has chosen to purchase Assessment Series in CommonLit School Essentials Pro, you will not have access to the free reading assessment on CommonLit.org. 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.
Teachers can now lock an assessment for an entire class in order to prevent students from resuming the test outside of the class period.
To lock a class's assessment once the start date has arrived, find the test on your Assignments page and click on the test name. Then, from the test's Student Status page, click Lock All over on the far right and click the teal LOCK ASSESSMENT button at the bottom of the window that pops up. To unlock the assessment whenever you're ready to do so, simply click Unlock All next to Lock All. This will restore your students' assessments with their saved progress to their accounts.
To lock an assessment for a specific student once the start date has arrived, find the student's name, click on Actions under the Actions column, click Lock. When you're ready to unlock the test for the student, click Unlock.
Locking an assessment saves all existing progress for students who had not yet submitted and removes the assessment from their accounts. Once you return to unlock the test from your account, it will reappear for those students on their accounts.
