This lesson will guide you through the use of the Multiple Assessment Importer, which is usually used for districts that use high speed scanners or Opt scan machines. It allows you to import multiple assessments in one .csv file to be imported into an Illuminate assessment already created. Basically, the point of this is to load all of the assessment data in at once (instead of opening each individual assessment).
Where to Start
You must have the Manual assessments already created- Assessments > Create a New Assessment > Manual Assessment-Input Question Number > Input info > Save. You must have the local assessment ID listed when you create the assessment.
Once you have all of the assessments scanned using the high speed scanner, take the .csv or .txt file and import it into Illuminate. The .csv file needs to have the fields shown below.
