How Do I Configure Benchmark Assessment Accommodations and Tools as a District Administrator?

Updated Dec 09, 2020

Enhanced accommodation benchmark assessments have several tools and accommodation features to help meet students' needs during the assessment process. District administrators and benchmark facilitators can manage these tools at the benchmark level. 

District administrators and benchmark facilitators can select which tools will be available for all students to use on enhanced accommodation benchmark assessments.

Notes: 

  • If you make changes to the tools and accommodations on an active benchmark, any students currently taking the assessment will need to log out and back in to see the changes.

Configure Accommodations and Tools

In the benchmark manager, click the Availability tab [1] and scroll to the end of the page. 

You can enable or disable the available tools and accommodations for the benchmark by clicking the checkbox associated with each tool [2]. 

You can also select which version of the default or Desmos calculator will be available to students [3].
