In order for a score to appear on the credential the student must post a passing score for the relevant skill area. This passing score is set by your System Administrator. You can view this score on the assignment screen for the program, or on the summary report page.
Depending on how you make the assignment (a subscription or manually), the user may have additional opportunities to get a better score.
- If you are using a subscription, any skill that is not passed on the pre-assessment is automatically assigned to the user via the Skill Enhancement. This allows the user to learn about the skill and see if they can get a better score. In the Skill Enhancement, the Post-Assessment is the only score that counts towards the credential. Think of this as the final test.
- If your user does not pass the post-assessment, the system will reassign the skill enhancement again if you used the subscription. If your user need any additional attempts, you can manually reassign any unit for free as long as the user has an active subscription. If you did not use the subscription, you can manually reassign the skill enhancement for an additional credit. This article explains that reassignment process.
- The Credential shows the highest passing score the user achieved. For example, if the user takes the map twice, and they score better the second time, the second score will be used. If they score better the first time, the first score will be used.
Here is an example user’s data so you can see this process:
This user did not pass Attitudes and Critical Thinking when taking the Map (Pre-Assessment). These two areas will not appear on the credential because she did not score at least 70%. The user was assigned the Attitudes skill enhancement. She completed the Attitudes skill enhancement and scored and 88% on the post-assessment. This 88% will now show on the credential.
