Scopes: General Information
On this tab you will specify the Name of the scope. This is visible to students and reporting users (see below).
note: most non-alphabet characters cannot be included in scope names. You can find more details here.
It is also important to note that a scope name can only be used once.
Many scope properties (such as the Target Score and Customized Scope) cannot be edited once there is student data. If guest access was not used for the testing or students have used your scope, the scope will be locked and you will need to create a new scope to incorporate updates to those sections. (When testing, you can use Guest access to ensure the test data is not saved.)
The Target Score is the score (on a scale of 1-100) that your students will be working towards in their study path. (The only exception is if your students use the ‘School Search’ functionality and choose their own schools and associated target scores.) Because the target score is on a 100-point scale, you can think of it as the % of material you want your students to master. For example, a target score of 90 indicates that your students need to master 90% of the material covered by this assessment in order to complete it.
If this is a scope that is aligned to an external test (such as the Accuplacer®, Compass®, etc) where you know the target score for your students on that test, the EdReady team can help you determine a comparable EdReady target score.
Maximum Study Paths
The Maximum study paths setting will default to 1: this means that students can work on this study path one time in a single goal. If students need to move goals (classes), they can bring their previous progress with them.
If you're interested in giving students the ability to start a study path from scratch (in a new goal), you can take advantage of this setting. This may be beneficial if you have students repeating a course in a new term, and you want them to start over in the study path. We recommend that you talk to you implementation specialist (contact us via Office Hours or an Implementation Appointment) so that we can provide guidance on using this option successfully.
The Enable advanced customization setting allows you to select individual learning objectives for the scope of expectations, instead of just selecting topics. Please note, however, that some questions in EdReady assess more than one learning objective at a time.
Activating a Scope
If the Active checkbox is checked/ on, this scope is available for your students to work on. If you make a scope inactive, students will no longer be able to access that study path, though it will still remain in their downloadable report.
Excluding a Scope from Reports
If the Exclude from Reports checkbox is checked/on, this scope will not be available for your reporting users to view. You may choose to set this value for a scope that was used for testing/demo purposes, or for historical scopes that won’t need to be accessed.
For English scopes, Enable resource grouping should be checked be default. If this setting is not checked, the student experience will not be ideal, as the learning resources will not be grouped together appropriately. This setting will not affect math scopes.
You also have the ability to apply tags to scopes so they can more easily be identified in a list and in the reports.
