Working with Assessment Codes
In order for a Learner to access an Assessment or view their results in the Assessment Tool, they need to have been given an Assessment Code by an Educator or Administrator with access to the Assessment.
The Assessment Code is a unique combination of six letters and numbers, that links a specific Learner to a specific Assessment in the Assessment Tool. As a result it is important that:
There are several ways in which the Learner can be given their code.
Emailing Assessment Codes
If a Learner (or Learners) has an email address registered in the Assessment Tool, you can email the codes directly from the Assessment Tool. To do this:
Adding a message to the Assessment Code Email
When Assessment Codes are sent by email, the Assessment Code information is contained in a standardised email format. While you cannot edit the content of this e-mail, you can add some information below the standard content. An example of when this might be useful is, for example, where you wish to advise Learners who will sit the Assessment that they will do so in a particular computer lab.
To send a message with the Assessment Code:
Note: If a message was previously sent to Learners, the message area will be pre-populated with this content.
Downloading Assessment Codes
As an alternative to emailing directly from the Assessment Tool, you can download the Assessment Codes in a preformatted PDF ,which can then be cut up and handed to each Learner. Alternatively you can download the Assessments in the form of a Comma Delimited value file, which you could then use in a mail merge, or SMS broadcast application.
To download the Assessment Codes:
Printing Assessment Codes
Printing the Assessment Codes for an Assessment is as simple as downloading the Assessment Codes in PDF or CSV format, then printing them on your local computer. Note, however, that the PDF version of the Assessment Codes has been formatted specifically to allow for cutting them into slips for distribution to Learners. As a consequence, the CSV version may not print with the desired format unless you spend some time formatting it in an application such as Microsoft Excel.
Resetting Assessment Codes
There may be occasions when the Assessment Codes need to be reset (i.e. a new Assessment Code must be generated for one or more Learners). This may happen when a particular Assessment Code has been lost, or compromised in some other way that may indicate the possibility that another Learner has received it.
Assessment Codes can be reset for a single Learner or an entire Assessment, depending on your requirements.
To reset one or more Assessment Codes:
