OnCourse Assessment

Focus on what students know, not how well they take tests!

In OnCourse Assessment, create interactive assessments that engage and challenge students on standard-aligned questions. Give teachers and curriculum staff instant feedback with beautiful, intuitive analytics.

Interactive Assessments

Go far beyond multiple choice! Create a stimulating testing environment with more than 70 technology-enhanced question types.

Students will demonstrate their knowledge with interactive passages, spoken response, matching/highlighting, charting, math/chemistry formulas, and more.

Alignment to Standards

Want to ensure strong standards correlation in your assessments?

Search through OnCourse's vast item bank, including tens of thousands of standard-aligned questions. Blueprint your test by choosing the standards you wish to assess, or search for individual items to add by standard, depth of knowledge level, or question type.

Lightning Fast Feedback

If results take too long to arrive, the data documents what we do, it doesn't drive what we do!

Say goodbye to "autopsy-style" testing and give your staff instant access to student performance data. Get live insights about progress toward standards or evaluate your tests using the item analysis dashboard.

Automatic Grading
When students submit their work, OnCourse automatically grades eligible items (math, multiple choice, cloze, etc.) and alerts teachers to areas that require review. 

Test Taking Options
Bubbles or pixels? OnCourse supports all major browsers, Chromebooks, tablets, and even traditional paper bubble sheets for classrooms without sufficient devices.

By practicing in OnCourse, students spend less time figuring out digital test programs, and more time engaged with meaningful exercises.

Student Progress

assessment-analytics-proficiency.gif

Nurturing student growth requires that assessment feedback arrive instantly.

In OnCourse Assessment, teachers get live feedback on student progress, giving them a golden opportunity to pivot instruction in time to make a difference.

PDF reports are boring. OnCourse provides staff with live, interactive dashboards that show a range of intuitive data on:

  • Student performance scores by standard
  • Class/school proficiency on standards
  • Mastery by standard
  • Item analysis by question
  • Item analysis by individual/class

Performance Bands
Track student progress with color-coded performance scores, either overall or by-standard. See how key demographics perform in relation to each other (like gender, ethnicity, classification, etc.)

Standards Mastery
More interested in mastery than grades? Switch to "Mastery" view and find out which concepts students are grasping, and which need extra attention.

Standards Proficiency Report
Want a comprehensive snapshot of a student's progress toward academic standards? Run the Proficiency Report for a live look at student competency in each standard.

Item Analysis

assessment-parcc-analytics.gif

Performing item analysis is one of the most powerful ways to boost the value of testing time.

OnCourse's Item Analysis dashboard helps you to quickly understand:

  • If tests are at an appropriate level of rigor
  • Which concepts are mastered; require remediation
  • If questions are misleading or ambiguous

By monitoring the responses of students and classrooms, then making meaningful adjustments, assessments delivered through OnCourse get better and better over time.

Item Analysis Matrix
Use OnCourse's color-coded dashboard to get a wide-angle view of performance on each assessment question, and quickly identify concepts that need additional instruction. 

Frequency Distribution Charts
Are students struggling to progress toward a standard, or are the questions formulated poorly? Use frequency distribution to see how many students chose each answer. 

Class Section Analysis
Switch to "Section" view to see how different classes answered questions compared to the rest of their grade level. OnCourse aggregates thousands of student responses instantly!

Supervision

assessment-administrative-supervision.gif

You've created assessments in OnCourse and deployed them to teachers; now what?

Get a live peek into the classroom with Live Progress features, which equip you to:

  • Identify classes that have started/completed testing
  • Review progress toward standards
  • Evaluate student competencies, by individual,  classroom, or grade level

Want to invite staff members to participate in assessment building? Use sophisticated permissions to invite contributors.

Live Progress
Teachers and test coordinators can monitor student activity in real-time, pause and resume tests, or move students to specific questions for review or clarification.

Permissions
Use sophisticated controls to determine which staff members or groups can view, edit, and administer tests in OnCourse Assessment. 

Administrative Oversight
Give principals, coaches, and curriculum staff the access they need to review student performance instantly as assessments are completed. 

Integration

integration-assessment-gradebook-sis.gif

There's no worse experience for teachers than trying to start a digital test and having issues with rosters or logins!

OnCourse Assessment can be integrated with most Student Information Systems; however, the power of this platform is magnified when integrated with:

  • OnCourse Student Information System
    Be confident that class rosters are always up-to-date, as the OnCourse SIS transmits enrollment and roster changes instantly to OnCourse Assessment.

  • OnCourse Grade Book
    Free staff from redundant data entry. Student grades can be automatically posted into the OnCourse Grade Book.

  • OnCourse Connect
    Why send students to an unfamiliar place to take tests? In the OnCourse ecosystem, students will take assessments from the same secure portal they use to read class messages and retrieve grades.
