What's the difference between a Content Assessment and Diagnostic Assessment?


For each Focus Area, students will be able to take Content Assessments, as well as Diagnostic Assessments:

  • Content Assessments are graded assessments. A Content Assessment has 10 assessment questions, and the assessment questions will be randomly selected from a larger set of possible questions that you’ve added to each objective. Teachers must approve a student’s request to take a Content Assessment.
  • Diagnostic Assessments are practice tests. A Diagnostic Assessment has at least one diagnostic question, and the same questions will always appear in all students' Diagnostic Assessments. Students can take Diagnostic Assessments as often as they choose, without requesting approval from their teacher.   

Note: Content Assessments must have exactly 10 assessment questions, and each objective must have at least a diagnostic question. Diagnostic questions will never be included in a Content Assessment, and will instead be shown in the Diagnostic Assessment so that students can test their mastery.
