Editing Students' Skills Practice Total Scores

After you score a student's skills practice assignment, you can edit the student's total or overall score without rescoring individual items.

If you edit the total score instead of rescoring the items in the assignment, the student's mastery chart for the skill at the bottom of the Activity Summary page will not be updated, and mastery scores in the Monitor Student Mastery view will not be updated. (This view is in the Reading Dashboard.)

On the Home page, select Instructional Reading under Accelerated Reader 360 to see student work on article assignments.

Then, follow these steps:

  1. Select Track Assignments in the top right corner of the main Accelerated Reader 360 page.
  2. You will go to the Track Student Work view. When you go to this view from Accelerated Reader 360, the class that you had selected is also selected in this view. In the example below, the "6 assignment types" that are selected are Accelerated Reader 360 assignments, and the class from the previous page is already selected. Make changes to the selections if necessary.
  3. Select the name of the plan that includes the assignments that you want to edit scores for. Accelerated Reader 360 assignments may be in plans called "AR 360 Instructional Practice Plan"; if you named your plan when you created assignments, look for that name instead.
  4. If you have more than one plan with the same name, the Start Date may help; this is the first day in the time period that you chose for the plan. Note that some plans may only be displayed if you have "School Year" chosen for the timeframe.

  5. After you click a plan, you will see a list of the assignments in that plan. Click an assignment that has the scored activity that you want to edit. In the example below, the first assignment (A Holiday to Celebrate Trees) has 5 activities in the Scored column.
  6. Another way to get to scores for a specific student is to click the arrow next to the plan (instead of clicking the plan name) and then click the name of a student who has activities scored.

  7. In the example below, both the quiz and the skills practice for the article have been scored for two of the students. You can see the points earned and the percentage scores.
  8. Select the skills practice score that you want to edit; then, Review/Rescore/Resubmit.

  9. You will go to a summary that shows the student's score. Select Edit Score.
  10. Enter a new total score for the assignment and select Apply Changes. You will see the new Total Score.
  11. Select Done to go back to the Track Student Work page.
