Enhanced Import Option for External Assessments

We’ve made an improvement to “Option 4” when importing test results for NWEA™, Scantron™, or Renaissance Learning™ assessments. “Option 4” allows students to continue working on any existing external test assignments if their score is in the same range as a previous test score, and receive a new assignment if they have scored in a different range.

Starting with this release, students who have completed assignments but score in the same range as their previous test score will be assigned a new copy of the completed assignments. Previously, students did not receive a new assignment if they had completed a previous assignment and scored in the same range.

Pathblazer Reset Screener Now Also Re-Enables Screener

The “Reset Screener” function can now be used to re-enable the screener assessment for one or more students. Previously, the screener had to be re-enabled individually for each student.

Support for Longer User Names

We now allow user names up to 60 characters long, which is an increase from the previous limit of 30 characters. The ability to create longer usernames supports schools that wish to use email addresses as usernames.
