What types of diagnostic tests are available in Progress Learning?

Updated by Gayle McKee

State Practice Assessments

Click here to learn which states and subjects currently have State Practice Assessments available. These are Premium Assessments that include the same number of questions per domain as your state test or EOC. They are also the same length of the state test. These questions are special and are not found anywhere else in the platform. Your students have never encountered them before. We recommend administering this special test 30 days prior to the real test.

Question Quick Pick

In the Assessment Builder, teachers and admins can use the Question Quick Pick option to have the platform select questions from the Progress Learning question databank. You get to choose the length of the test. The percent of questions that come from each domain will match the percentages of your state test, if it is a state-tested subject. Click here for detailed instructions. You may preview the questions and replace them if you choose.

Summative Tests (Teacher-Assigned)

In the content section of the Assignment Builder, you will find a tab called Summative and Domain Practice Tests. If you select a test from this section, you are assigning a test that is created exactly the way the Question Quick Pick is created. Progress Learning will choose the questions from the databank. You get to choose the length of the test. The percent of questions that come from each domain will match the percentages of your state test, if it is a state-tested subject. Click here for detailed instructions. You may preview the questions on Step 7, below, by clicking the eye icon.

Summative Tests (Student Dashboard)

On the student study plan, your students are able to take a summative test (as described directly above) independently. They simply click on Subject Test from the Study Plan. To learn more, click here.

In Texas only, we offer these diagnostics for K-8 Math, K-8 Reading, 3-8 Science, and 3-5 & 8th Grade Social Studies. Pre and Post Tests consist of 2 questions per TEK.
