Choosing Continuous or Broken Assessment Administration

With the new adaptive Horizon Assessments for the PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, and SAT, each section (Reading & Writing, Math) contains two parts.

For a Continuous Administration, students are routed to Part 2 of the assessment section immediately after they complete Part 1.

For a Broken Administration, set two start different dates and times for when each section will become available to students.

Video Explanation outlining Continuous vs. Broken Administrations.

Important Note: For both Continuous and Broken Administrations, students have 48 hours to complete an assessment section before the Horizon platform automatically submits their assessment section for scoring. The 48 hours starts when the student his the start button on an assessment section, and each section (part 1 and part 2) has it's own 48 hour window from when then the student starts the section.

Assigning a Continuous Assessment Administration

Select which assessment (PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, or SAT) and section (Reading and Writing or Math) to be assigned. Then select Continuous Administration.

For a Continuous Administration, set a single start date and time that the section becomes available to students. End dates and times will automatically close the assessment window.  End dates and times are optional.

Users have the optional functionality of setting a date and time that the full list of student responses and correct answers are available to students on their completed assessment score reports.

By default, students will not have access to this information until a teacher sets a date and time for these to be shown.
