Assessments in Skyward!

Since Canyons School District opened in 2009, Skyward has been used as the gradebook for parents, students, and teachers.  Yet, many teachers do not know that within Skyward, teachers can assess student learning.   Skyward calls this testing option, Online Assignment. 

Question types include: multiple choice, true/false, matching, short answer, and essay.  If the Online Assignment only has multiple choice, T/F, and/or matching, Skyward will automatically grade the student’s assignment and enter the score into the gradebook.  Teachers are able to get data reports by student or by questions.  Other useful features include adding images to questions/possible answers and the ability to share or use assessments created by other teachers throughout the district. 

A key to success for online assignments is that each student must know their Skyward login, which is different from their AD/OD credentials.  Secretaries are able to lookup student Skyward usernames and passwords.
