Mathematics Tip - Test with Key & Manager

Another way to use Key & Manager in the classroom is during a Level Test. Students that are in lower grades should take their Level Test at the instructor desk. The instructor can grade the Level Test at the same time the students are completing the paper test. Students in upper levels will need a longer time to complete the test and therefore can complete the test at their SDL Desk. Students can complete CTM tests at their desk as well since time is not factor in achieving mastery. First, find the student that is taking the Level Test. Under the Schedule, you will only see the students that are currently in class. Click on the three yellow dots next to the student’s name to see the different options. Click on Level Test.

Select the Level Test subject and booklet that is being administered. Be sure to choose the correct booklet and examine closely whether you are choosing BTM or CTM. We will examine a BTM test first. If you are watching the student complete the test, you can use the timer that is provided. Like the DT, if a student makes a mistake you can check the box. If the student skips a question, swipe to the left and the question will turn pink. At the end of the test, click the blue arrow to see the results.

At the end of the test, there is a result page. In this example the student passed the test because she achieved 88% accuracy and completed the test within the time limit. The student can advance to level 6.

Below is an example of CTM. There is no timer because time is not a factor in CTM mastery. This student got many questions wrong at the end of test. The note explains that the student should repeat the booklets related to the missed concepts. Once the necessary repetitions are completed, the student will retake the Level Test.

The Level Test should only be given as a confirmation of mastery. An instructor should be confident a student is going to pass the test before the Level Test is assigned. If there are any other questions, please reach out to your Field Consultant.
