How do I ask students to redo an assessment? Using Redirect.



Reassign or “redirect” is a good feature to use if:

(1) Students were absent during the initial testing window

(2) Students have inadvertently skipped questions on the assessment and you want them the opportunity to go back in and answer those

(3) Students rushed through an assessment without giving their best effort and you want them to retake

(4) You want to give students additional practice on the assessment.


When you redirect, the prior responses are not deleted. If the students wish, they can change their responses or keep them as is. On the teachers' side, the students' cards will show the boxes as gray and appear as if it has not been taken yet. This is so you can get the live data on the retake and does not delete their previous work unless you choose to do so ($).

Teachers are able to redirect an assignment any number of times. Redirect remains available even after the due date has passed. 

How to Redirect

Follow these steps to redirect:

  1. Select the "Assessments" tab from the Menu.
  2. Find the assessment in your list and click on it.
  3. To redirect the assignment to all the students in your class, place a check mark in the box entitled "Student Responses" (Option #1).  To redirect the assignment to specific students in your class, click on the checkbox next to their names. (Option #2) Next, click on  "Redirect" to initiate the process.


    4. This takes the teacher to a screen to confirm.  Here the teacher has a few options.  The teacher can:

choose to show the student his/her previous responses and

show student his/her correct responses and teacher’s comments



By deselecting these options, the students will receive a blank assessment, a clean start, on the next attempt.

At this point, the teacher can select additional students by selecting the Expand button and selecting additional students.  Finally, fill out the rest of the assign form (ie. assessment window) and then click "Redirect" in the upper right to finish.


See Multiple Attempts

In addition, when teachers are grading the retake, the teacher can toggle through each attempt to see how student answered from one version to the next. 

To see multiple attempts, first click on student card.



 Then in the right corner, the teacher can shuffle through the student's answers for each attempt.


Please note:  the final attempt is the score that is recorded on Reports and Express Grader.  

Best Practice:  If the student’s best attempt is an earlier one, the recommendation is to manually adjust student scores in Express Grader, or redirect the assessment to the student one more time with comments indicating which changes to make.
