Create an Assessment Item provides the ability to generate a custom assessment item (utilizing the SAS step-by-step process), which can then be added to an assessment. View My Assessments allows you to examine any of your previously-created assessments. Check for Understanding allows you to create new Checks for Understanding and access the results of completed Check for Understanding.

The Assessment Center offers several options for educators:

  • Users can create customized test questions utilizing the SAS step-by-step process.
  • Tests can be custom designed, with the option of integrating teacher-created test questions and test items from the PDE SAS Assessment Center.
  • Customized assessments can be shared with colleagues to create a repository of common assessments.
  • Once created, tests can be redesigned as instruction and needs dictate.
