Resetting Placement Exams

District administrators can reset placement exams for their full school district. This is typically done after a long break to reassess where students are in the program. The students will take another placement exam and will be placed at the appropriate level.

Resetting placement exams will unassign students from their current placement in Waterford curriculum, allowing them to retake the placement test next school year. It will not erase learning data collected throughout the year, including dashboards and reports, and will not erase SmartStart data.

It also will not remove course and teacher assignments. To remove those, you will need to remove associations (link).
