Entering/Viewing Test Score Records
To enter or view a test score for a student, select the Test Score Information page (SOATEST). The Test Score Information form allows the entering/viewing of test scores on student accounts. The Test Score Information form is divided into four sections of data. The upper section (Key section) contains the "key" information to identify the student you wish to enter or view a test score for. The middle block (Test Scores Detail block) contains a list of the tests the student has taken. The lower block (Test Score Range block) displays the test score ranges for the record the cursor is on in the Test Scores Detail block.
Key Section (Page 1 - Section 1):
The Key section specifies which student you are working with. All fields in the Key block are required. Enter the following information:
Student ID: ID that identifies the student in Banner. Enter the ID of the student. If you do not know the ID, you may tab to the next field and enter a full or partial name or you may choose Help/List from the menu bar to do a search.
Student Name: Name associated with the student ID. If you have not entered an ID, enter the full or partial name of the student in the format of "Last, First". A % may be used as a wildcard (i.e., Enter Smith, Ja% to search for a student with the last name of Smith and a first name starting with the letters Ja).
Once you have successfully selected a student, choose Block/Next from the menu bar to move to the Test Scores Detail block or use the mouse to click into the block. Information will be displayed for the student entered in the Key block.
Test Scores Detail Block (Page 1 - Block 2):
The Test Scores Detail block displays a list of tests the student has taken. The Test Scores Detail block contains the following information:
