How do I reset my students' diagnostic test?

If a student is seeing questions that are too difficult or easy, or if it has been several months since they last took the diagnostic, you can reset the diagnostic.


Tip: The initial questions pupils receive will be based on their age level by default. However, the instructions below include steps for setting the diagnostic at a customized level if, for example, you have students working below their age level and who may be put off by initial questions that are too difficult.

Resetting the diagnostic test

  1. Click 'reports' at the top of the Teacher Dashboard. Ensure you have selected your desired class and subject. You can change these using the dropdown menus at the top left
  2. Click 'check' in the Diagnostic Results box
  3. Click the refresh icon next to one of the students you would like to reset the diagnostic for.

    The student chooser window will pop up, and the student you clicked the refresh icon for will automatically be selected
  4. If you'd like to select all the students in a class, click the box next to the class name. If you'd instead like to select individual students, click the box next to each student's name. Click 'next'

  5. Optional: If you’d like to customize the diagnostic (for example, if a student is working below level and may be put off by a too difficult pretest), click the dropdown menu on the right and select the grade you would like the diagnostic to be set at.

    Click 'set test'. The diagnostic will then appear on the select student(s) dashboard.
