Please note: A select few districts have minor customizations made to their re-leveling table (seen at 0:48 in the above video). If you’re wondering whether your district has a customized re-leveling table, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order for Literably to identify students' accurate instructional reading levels, some of your students may need to reassess. In particular, students who:
- Did not submit a gradable assessment (due to background noise, whispering, etc).
- Did very well or struggled on their assessment (and so may be far from their instructional reading levels). These students' scores fell into a range that contains the word "re-assess" on Literably's leveling criteria/table, and they are automatically re-leveled based on this table.
How do I know who has been recommended for reassessment?
The students who are recommended for reassessment are listed in the results notification email, and they're marked with the reassessment icon () on your teacher dashboard:
This reassessment icon is just a recommendation, and it is ultimately up to you as the teacher to decide whether to reassess a student. Similarly, if a student does not have a reassessment recommendation, you can still feel free to reassess that student if the additional data would be useful.
How do I reassess students?
To reassess a student, you just need to prompt them to log back into Literably and take another assessment. (Students will not receive any notifications from Literably asking them to reassess.) Literably will have already moved each student to an appropriate level/text for reassessment based on Literably's leveling table, but you also have the option of manually adjusting the level/text under the "Next Assessment" column of your dashboard.
How do I know how many times to reassess my students during each assessment round?
