Test Building Tool
Teachers often want to administer low-stakes testing such as formative or benchmark assessments or even chapter tests and quizzes. With Perspective’s easy-to-use Test Building Tool, teachers can construct their own tests by selecting from a bank of test items that include state-released test items and released NAEP items. They’ll simply search by key word or academic standard, filter the results by difficulty or other characteristic, and arrange them into tests. The system will generate a printable PDF copy of the assessment, along with a separate answer key.
Filter the list of test items with your criteria. Preview and select items for your test.
