A student who doesn't study or has long periods of inactivity will not be ready to take an assessment. However, classroom pragmatics sometimes make it necessary to administer an assessment.

We suggest that teachers intervene and ensure that students spend additional time training. You can monitor your student's training through reports.

Once a student has trained, you can re-issue an assessment for the testing period.

Please Note: Some students deliberately train irregularly/poorly in order to be tested on the same bank of words for every assessment. By not forcing an assessment, these students will have to train for a few sessions before they have words deemed quiz-ready.

  1. Force an assessment
  2. Create an assessment.
  3. Check the "Force Assessment" box prior to clicking "Create Assessment." 

How are words chosen for forced assessments?

For students who don't have enough quiz-ready words based on current word memory scores, Membean will construct a test from words with lower memory scores. If not enough words have been seen, the test is constructed from words that the student might have encountered had they studied diligently.
