Assessment Updates - Spring 2024

Our product team has been busy with great improvements and new features based on feedback from EPP and HEIghten customers - learn more about some of those updates here.

🏛️ Personalization

    • We now offer branding and personalization options for institutions on the test tile right on the learner dashboard. What options are available? First, you can add your institution logo to the tile for all testers! If you haven’t already added your logo, go to Configuration > Personalization > Edit.  In the Logo section, select Choose an image and then Save. While you are in the Personalization tool, also make sure your formal institution name shows up correctly as it will appear in blue under the Administration Name on the tile. These tools help ensure individuals understand they are taking the correct test from their school or organization. For further validation, this same test tile has been added to the submitted exam confirmation email that learners get when they complete their exam.

🔎 Accessibility

    • During the exam, all learners will be able to use the magnification tool or high-contrast through the accessibility icon located in the lower-left corner of their testing window.

      Additionally, extended time or unscheduled breaks can be assigned to individual learners as needed through the Administrations > Dashboard > View Students > Accommodation Options.

📶 Reporting

    • If your institution allows learners to receive their score reports (an administration configuration option), the score report will be available to them after the exam is submitted. A Score Report image will be visible on the testing tile, clicking the tile will display the report which can be viewed, downloaded or printed.

    • The Confidence Interval has been added to the E-Proficiency Profile ("EPP") Institution report. This information will be part of each score and subscore overview and is displayed below the Standard Deviation.
