It is possible for students to see returned benchmark assessments in OnCourse Connect if your district has both OnCourse Assessment and Classroom. However, for those districts that only have OnCourse Assessment this is not possible... UNTIL NOW!
In districts that only have OnCourse Assessment, students will see a new Assessments tab in OnCourse Connect. Clicking on this tab reveals all returned district assessments that have been made visible to students. Students will also see their grade at the top of each assessment.
In order for benchmark assessments to be visible in the OnCourse Connect Assessments tab, there are a few things that need to happen:
- First, when an assessment is being created, the author must enable the Allow Students to View Returned Assessment option. This option will always be grayed-out for teachers, and either activated or not.
**The author always has the ability to change this option, even after the assessment is published.
- Second, once the assessment is completed and graded, it needs to be returned to the students.
**If the district has OnCourse Classroom as well as OnCourse Assessment, students will see returned assessments in OnCourse Connect in the assignments queue, located in the Classroom tab. For those districts that only have OnCourse Assessment, returned assessments will live in the Assessments tab.**
