Setting Up a WACS Test
Once you’ve assigned your students to a benchmark and initialized their accounts, they can begin the WACS test. To set up a WACS test for your student:
- Visit Students tab and click Drag to Desktop. This will open up to a student walk-up page similar to Waterford Early Learning, with rows of student picture or initials (if no picture is available).
- Click on the student’s picture or initials. A window will open that asks, “Is this you?”
- Choose Yes to confirm the student’s identity – this will automatically start WACS.
On average, WACS sessions take approximately 20-30 minutes. You can adjust the time limits for test breaks for your class or individual students.
If a student does not finish their test by the time limit, Wyatt tells them to take a break and the program temporarily shuts down. The student can access the program later to finish the test, but they must complete it within 14 days.
If a student does not complete a test by day 14, it expires and their teacher cannot view their score. The student must be reassessed at a later benchmark.
