  • Test Creation with Multiple Choice

    Approx 90 minutes

    Test Creation with Multiple Choice This session will offer an introduction to test writing within the Unify platform.

Both test styles will be covered including Online Administration and Answer Key Only (AKO) assessments.

    Creating Interactive Items in Unify

    Approx 90 minutes

    This training will focus on how to build technology-enhanced items within Unify. These items are attached to standards in order to aid in data analysis and can be created to mimic various interaction types. By learning how to build items, users can then create tests using their own material.

    Answer Key Only (AKO) Test Creation

    Approx 45 minutes

    This shows how to create an Answer Key Only (AKO) test. An AKO allows users to take a previously created test (from a different platform such as Word) and administer using a Unify answer sheet or online. The answer sheet mirrors the type and amount of items that are found on the test. AKO's also allow for data tracking for the user.
