STAMP 4S Guides
Test Taker Guides
The Student Profile Page is the first screen that appears after the test taker logs in. It is used to verify the student login information, gather additional information about the test taker and record information about the test taker’s background with the language being tested.
The only required fields are:
Retype Student ID
However, we encourage you to use the optional fields. They provide a wealth of information that is included with the test results information when you use the Line Item Summary Download (see the Avant STAMP 4S Reporting Guide for more information).
Successful use of the profile information requires communication with the test takers to ensure that they understand the questionnaire and that they will answer all of the questions for which you need data.
The following screenshots better show the three sections of the Student Profile page.
Your login name is what will help you return to your test later. Your login name needs to be unique from other test takers. Ask your teacher/proctor for guidance on what to enter and make sure you can remember it!
Examples: Your Student ID or Full Name
In this section, the test taker will enter his/her First Name and Last Name. Each of these fields accepts up to 50 characters. Student ID is typically the test taker’s Student Body ID number, if one exists. This is especially important if you plan to upload test results to a student information system. Otherwise, any numbers or characters can be entered here and would not need to be unique for each test taker. Selecting the date of birth is optional and not required.
If you want to use the language background information in analyzing test results, the test proctor or teacher should let the test takers know that you require this information. The test proctor should also be prepared to answer any questions test takers may have with this section of the test.
