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 students' training through reports. Once a student has trained, you can re-issue an assessment for the testing period.

If you'd like to force an assessment, even if some students aren't ready, this article will show you how to do this.

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 quizzable.

The Words Chosen for Forced Assessments

For students who don't have enough quizzable 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.
