Activating and Retiring an Assessment
An Assessment may have one of three Assessment Statuses at any time after creation.
Note: Assessments can be Activated, Deactivated and Retired in bulk from the Bulk Change Assessment Status panel in the side menu of the Assessments tab.
Immediately after creation, Adaptive, Non-Adaptive and Snapshot Reading, Numeracy and Vocabulary Assessments have a status of Non Active. This means that they can be seen and worked with by authorised Educators and Administrators, but that Learners who have been assigned to these Assessments cannot begin taking them.
All Non-Adaptive for Printing and Writing Assessments are automatically assigned an Active status on creation. All other Assessments will, after being readied for use by the Educator or Organisation Administrator, need to be changed to Active. You can do this in one of two ways.
To Activate an Assessment from the Home tab:
To Activate an Assessment from the Assessment details page:

Twenty-six weeks after being created an Assessment will automatically have its status changed to Retired (this time period is only eight weeks in the case of Non-adaptive and Non-adaptive for Printing Assessments). This means that it is removed from the Home tab of any Educators that are assigned to it, and that no more Learners can sit it (on logging in with a previously issued Assessment Code, they will be told that the Assessment is not available). It is also possible to manually retire an Assessment, although the only benefit of this is to have it not show on the Educator's Home tab. The reason for this functionality is that occasionally, for system wide administrative purposes, it may be necessary for an administrator to manually retire an Assessment so that there is no chance that any Learners will take it in the future.
