Frequently Asked Questions about Schoology AMP for teachers:

 

 

  • Why is my AMP assessment not in my Schoology course?
    • Are you a teacher of record?   Do you give students grades in eSchool?
      • If the answer is NO to these questions, then your students’ assessments will be located in their teacher of record’s content area Schoology course. The teacher can add you as a co-teacher in their course, so that you can administer the test to your students. Click here to view directions on how to do this.
      • If the answer is YES to these questions, then you should have the Schoology AMP assessments in your content area Schoology Course. If you checked and you do NOT, please email Courtney.Kalbach@redclay.k12.de.us

 

  • How do I make sure that students cannot access this test outside of the school day or class period?
    • Good News! As of Fall 2019, Availability Windows have been added to all AMP assessments. AMP Assessments are only available to students from August 24, 2020 through June 16, 2021 and are limited to school hours and weekdays. 
    • However, you can still “lock down” AMP assessments even further within this availability period. For example: You do not want students to access the assessment outside of your class period times. Click here an follow these directions to complete this task.

 

  • My student submitted their test, but they did not finish. When my student tries to continue testing, the screen says "You may only make one attempt."
    • Teachers may unsubmit the assessment for students once they have already submitted them. Select Unsubmit next to the student's assessment under "Grading" to place the attempt back into "In Progress". The student can now resume testing. Any work the student had previously completed is saved for them to come back to. 

 

  • My student has finished the test, but they forgot to press submit.
    • Under "Grading" teachers click and select Submit to move the the assessment attempt into a Completed state. The student will not be able to resume this attempt once you submit it.

    • Step 2: Administer the assessment to the student.
    • Step 3: Enter the student’s response for each question into Schoology so that the question-level scores and overall score for the assessment can be automatically calculated, the same way it would if the student had taken the assessment online.
