What options are there for setting assessments?
Whether you want to run an exam or just quiz your students on a recent topic, Education Perfect has a number of options to ensure that you're able to assess your students the way you want.
Quizzes (formerly Quick Tests)
Quizzes are designed to be quickly gauge the degree of understanding that students have for a given topic.
Most Quizzes are automatically marked by default, but you can override these marks and choose to withhold results before you release them to students.
You're only able to assign one type of content in an Assessment (e.g. you can't assign a Smart Lesson and a Spelling List together) and you can only assign work together if it's from the same module (i.e. the same folder in the Content Library).
| Translation List
|Fact List|| Auto-marked
| Spelling List
| Smart Lesson
Extended Response Questions
To assign Extended Response questions in an assessment, you will need to click on them to preview them, then select Convert to manually-marked assessment. Then select Include question.
Once you have set the assessment to be manually marked, you'll be able to add Extended Response questions directly from the Content Picker.
Pre-built Assessments are ideal for assessments that are being sat under exam conditions.

Assigning follow up work
You can set your assessment up to assign recommended content based on your students' performance in different learning areas in the assessment.
For more information about assigning recommended tasks, check out our guide.

As well as choosing who the Assessment is assigned to, the content included and the time you are setting it for, there are other key settings that can help achieve specific outcomes.
- Access Code: Require students to use an Access Code to start an Assessment.
- This is useful if you have different groups of students sitting the assessment at different times as it allows you to make sure they can only start it once you have given them the code.
- You're also able to change this code between sessions.
- Live Monitoring: Use this function to check what each of your students are doing while completing work. Find more about this here.
Text to Speech
Text to Speech is a built in screen-reader that students can use to read questions to them. This can be helpful for students with learning impairments. Find out more about this feature.
You have the option to Withhold student results until I choose to release them.
This can help to stop students from seeing the information until you are ready, and everyone has completed the Assessment.
