Online assessments are completed by students on a supported device and can be administered to a group of students all at once. You can assign online mCLASS assessments to individual students or to your entire class or group.
This video shows a brief overview of how to use Student Online Assessment Management to assign online assessments.

How to administer Maze Online and CP Online
The Maze measure in mCLASS with DIBELS 8th Edition and the CP measure in mCLASS Lectura are available for online administration; students complete them on a desktop, laptop, or tablet computer.
We recommend the online version of these assessments, in which the benchmark and progress monitoring forms are presented in a browser window, and students click the correct response for each item. Results are calculated automatically and shown in the mCLASS with DIBELS 8th Edition or mCLASS Lectura class, student, and probe detail reports.
In cases where devices are not available to administer online assessments, we still support web entry of scores from paper-pencil assessments. Please note that item-level detail reports are not available for web-entered assessment results.
If you are a district administrator assigning assessments to students in your schools, refer to the guide for district-level student online assessment assignment: Student online assessment guide for district admins.

Benchmark windows for online assessment
We recently made enhancements to the configuration of our benchmark testing window setup for online assessment:
The benchmark testing windows for online assessment match observational assessment, i.e., assessments remain open and available to assign to students once the testing window starts.
The Beginning-of-Year (BOY) assessments remain open until the Middle-of-Year (MOY) period starts, which then remain open until the End-of-Year (EOY) period starts.
This supports additional testing as required by local educational policies, such as for dyslexia screening.
English and Spanish online testing windows
Your district can schedule different testing windows by language to better fit your testing schedules, e.g., a district leader may schedule Spanish testing a week after English testing. To support this feature the Student Online Assessment Management page has an English dashboard and a Spanish dashboard. This means that you will manage your English assessments on the English dashboard and your Spanish assessments on the Spanish dashboard. You will still set your testing windows through Amplify support as you have done in the past.
