Assignments - How do I complete and submit an auto-scored (AT) assignment?

  • An auto-scored (AT) assignment should not be opened for any reason until the student is ready to complete it in one sitting. Once the AT assignment is opened, it must be completed promptly or it will automatically submit with a score based on answers provided or omitted by the student. Even if the AT is closed immediately after opening it, the timer will have started and the AT must be completed in a reasonable time.
  • Auto-scored (AT) assignments with instructions to complete the assignment on paper first should be opened only after the answers are ready to input and submit.
  • If the auto-scored (AT) assignment is one part of a multi-part test, the AT portion should be treated as part of the same test for administration and proctoring and completed in the same sitting.
  • Questions are saved as you answer them, but you may change them until you submit the assignment. If your browser or internet has a problem during the test, you can reload your browser or reboot your computer and re-open the AT (on the same or different computer, because work is stored on the server) immediately without losing your work.
  • Auto-scored (AT) assignments have no ability to submit answers not selected by the student. Even if the "reasonable time" to complete the test is exceeded and the AT submits automatically on the server, no modifications are made to the answers provided or not provided by the student while the test was active.
  • Auto-scored (AT) assignments do not lock out the student or automatically submit if there is a tech issue on the student's computer or internet. The AT may be reopened and resumed on any computer within a reasonable time after it was first opened.
