Best Practices When Taking Tests
When taking a test, students should:
Complete the test in one sitting
Ensure their computer has a strong internet connection and is fully charged
Be in an environment free from noise and distraction
Avoid being tired, hungry, etc.
While working on lessons, students can take hand-written notes, which can then be referenced while taking quizzes and tests. Other resources available to students, such as websites, should NOT be used while taking quizzes and tests.
Students are given only one attempt on all tests. However, if there is an alternate test available, students may request to take that test by sending the teacher a direct message in Ignitia. Teachers may also require a student to submit corrections to the original test through the Ignitia help request box prior to assigning the alternate test.
If a student scores lower on the alternate test, the student may request that the teacher accept the higher score. Students are not allowed to submit corrections or take alternate tests in previously completed units if they are within three weeks of the end of the course.
