The Skills Snapshot Assessment uses questions from the quick quizzes within each unit as a pretest. If the student correctly answers 3 questions in a row, Classworks scores the item as mastered. The student then moves on in the test and the associated instruction does not become part of his or her Individualized Learning Path (ILP). If the student has not mastered a skill (determined by missing 3 questions), the appropriate instructional unit(s) will automatically be assigned.
The quick quiz is automatically given in its entirety at the end of the instructional unit, which can be used as a post-test score.
