There are two options for assessing standards and benchmarks at the end of the term: all benchmarks for one student at a time, or one benchmark at a time for an entire class of students. The choice depends upon whether you want to start and finish one student's assessments before moving on to another student, or if you want to enter everyone's result for the same benchmark before moving on to the second assessment.

If your preference is to assess a benchmark for the entire class then go to Edit > Edit Assessments for a Course or Grade in jmc Teacher to begin entering benchmark results for all your students.

Step One: Select the course or grade level using the "Courses/Grade" drop-down list to access standards and benchmarks that have been assigned to a course or grade.

Step Two: Select the subject area using the "Subject Area" drop-down list to access a specific subject area's standards and benchmarks.

Step Three: Select the standard using the "Standard" drop-down list to view all of the benchmarks associated with the selected course/grade, subject area, and standard.

Step Four: Select the benchmark to assess using the "Assessment" drop-down list.

Step Five: Select the set of assessment results to edit using the "Assessment Set" drop-down list or click the "Add Assessment Set" or "Delete Assessment Set" button to add or delete an assessment set.

  • "Assessment Set" drop-down list: view or edit an existing set of student assessments

  • "Add Assessment Set" button: add a new set to begin assessing students

  • "Delete Assessment Set" button: delete the currently displayed assessment set

Step Six: Select an assessment result using the drop-down list next to each student under the "Result ID" column to enter a benchmark result for a student.

Step Seven: Enter a comment in the "Comment" field to associate a comment with a student's benchmark result.

Step Eight: Click the "Save" button to save your benchmark assessment results.

Step Nine: Click the "Print" button to print a list of the selected benchmark's assessment results for the course or grade.

Fun Fact: If you are calculating a result to a standard and benchmark, the result for the calculated benchmark will automatically appear. If you change the calculated benchmark result from this page, a checkmark will appear in the "Locked" column indicating that this grade has been overridden.
