A Check for Understanding is an assessment created by a teacher in SAS and shared with a student via a web link. Checks for Understanding are completed online by the students, and teachers can access an aggregate of the results to view student progress.
1. Before creating a Check for Understanding, you may use an existing assessment or create new assessment items using the Assessment Builder. To create (an) assessment(s), click the Create a New Assessment button on the Check for Understanding Results screen and follow the Build an Assessment.
Hint: If you are using an existing assessment item, consider duplicating that item to use in the Check for Understanding. That will allow the item to remain in My Assessment.
2. On the Check for Understanding Results screen, click the Create a New Check for Understanding
3. In the pop-up window that appears, add the necessary information (see below) to create the Check for Understanding.
Click the yellow Select an Assessment drop down menu and select the assessment you will use for the Check for Understanding. Note that Assessments may be used in multiple Checks for Understanding.
Add a name for this Check for Understanding Instance.
Hint: Select a name that will ensure you can find the Check for Understanding easily to share the link or review the results. For example, if you intend to create a Check for Understanding for multiple classes using the same Assessment, consider including the class period in the Check for Understanding Name (i.e. Rounding – 5th Period).
You must set an end date and an end time for your Check for Understanding. This is the date and time after which your Check for Understanding will no longer be available to your students.
Enter the date in the format shown, or use the calendar icon to select an end date.
Use the arrows to choose the correct month and click on the desired end date to select an end date using the calendar.
Enter the time in the format shown, or use the clock icon to select an end time.
Use your mouse to scroll to the desired end time and click to select.
You have the option to automatically display the correct answers for multiple choice questions only on the student view after student submission if you would like to. Select Yes if you would like students to see the correct answers after their submission and No if you would not like them to see the correct answers. Note: This is only available for multiple choice assessment items.
Click Create to finish the process of creating a new Check for Understanding.
Remember: None of the items in your Check for Understanding should request participant identifying information.
