External Assessment Document using the Uploader Tool

NOTE: This version utilizes the Upload, Footer Date, and Manage Standards sections only.

If you'd like to upload an existing district assessment document (i.e. Word or PDF version created elsewhere), and not create a dynamic version using the TCMPC item bank, you can use the upload features provided.

 

When the template page opens, use the Choose File tools in the Upload sections to find your assessment document (and answer key document, if created). After selecting the document, click the Upload Unit Test button (or Upload Answer Key button, if necessary) to attach your document.
