"Check for Understanding" Settings

In the Assessment Access section of System Management, District Content Administrators can manage users' ability to convert assessments into Checks for Understanding.

A Check for Understanding (CFU) is an online questionnaire for students to enter their responses and provide teachers with aggregate class data to broadly track student comprehension. This feature is intended as a formative method of assessment to help drive instruction and is not meant as a means for collecting grades for individual students. A CFU is created using a regular assessment from the Assessment Center and is shared with students via a web link. CFUs can be administered throughout the course of a unit, used as an "Exit Slip", or given as a unit pre-test to gauge students' prior knowledge.

When access is granted, the Check for Understanding section will appear for all district users on the Assessment Center landing page. Altering the controls within the District Assessment Settings table will automatically update all of the subsequent campuses, though District Admins may still customize each campus (if desired).
