How do I configure an assessment score mapping for my institution?

Updated Sep 17, 2021

As a Videri admin, you can configure custom assessment score mappings for assessments in your account. Assessment score mappings allow you to define score ranges that indicate student achievement and growth. 

To create an assessment score performance level, you must first define the mapping. Once the mapping is defined, you can configure the mapping for all the defined assessment data. Additionally, because institutional goals change and evolve over time, and because success varies by grade level, you can create mappings specific to school year and grade level. You can also copy a custom assessment mapping to additional school years and grade levels.

You can manage score value mapping options in the Numeric Score Value Mapping section.

The goal direction specifies whether low or high assessment score values indicate goal achievement. Typically, assessments use a low-to-high achievement scale, and the Standard option is selected by default [1]. However, if a low score is preferred above a high score, you can select the Inverse option [2].

The comparison basis determines values included in your score range comparisons. Typically, assessment score ranges include values up-to and including a specified value, and the Inclusive (includes the value) option is selected [3]. However, if a score range should not include the specified value, you can select the Exclusive (less than the value) option [4].

To configure your alphanumeric scores in your score ranges, click the Configure button [5].

Configure Non-Numeric Scores

Configure Non-Numeric Scores

Configure any non-numeric assessment scores in the Parse non-numeric scores page.

Enter the regular expression value, usually \d+, in the Capture number (regex) field [1]. For additional information about using regular expressions to parse assessment scores, hover over the Information icon [2]. Videri uses the expression to search and replace any non-numeric scores with numeric values.

If your alphanumeric assessment score values indicate negative scores, click the Negate number (regex) checkbox [3], then enter the alphabetic value in the text field [4]. Click the Show Results button [5].

To apply the expression(s) to your assessment scores, click the Apply button [6].
