The Test Taker lists show test information for each test taker. This lists will start to show data as soon as the test taker logs into the test. Once the test taker completes the Self-Evaluation questions their responses will be averaged and displayed for the Self-Evaluation score. Writing and Speaking scores are typically available in 10 to 12 business days after completion of the test. They may be available sooner, so check the test results screen periodically to determine the grading progress.
||The test taker has started but not completed the test|
|Grading In Progress||
||The test is complete, but grading is not complete for one or more responses|
||If a test taker responds to all of the self-evaluation screens with the response "I have no functional ability with this language," the test taker receives no test items, as it appears that the test taker has no knowledge base for testing|
Graders were not able to rate any of the responses in the section. To determine the cause, click on the grades in the Detailed Report to review the test taker’s responses. Possible reasons for “Not Ratable” responses include:
A minus sign after the level for a Writing or Speaking score indicates that of the four necessary ratable responses the test taker only submitted one. This serves as an alert that limited evidence was available to establish the score.
Avant Client Support: Call 888-713-7887 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have students that accidentally skipped a test section due to technical issues, a phone call to client support with the student login name and test code will bring an immediate solution, as they will be able to reset the test or section. This will allow the student to log back in and select the desired section. We are only able to reset entire sections or tests, and not individual questions/items.
You can also send an email to support for non-immediate requests and questions, listing the student login name, test code and providing a brief description of the issue or topic to help the support team investigate the matter and provide a response.
Individual Detailed Reports show the Writing and Speaking levels attained on the Avant WorldSpeak test for each test taker. They provide in clear, direct language what test takers at each level are generally able to do.
Each test taker’s report has a scoring graphic for each section of the test. This inverted pyramid has a yellow-filled area that depicts the level attained. The level is also shown in the blue bar for each section of the test.
An additional blue-filled area will appear if the test taker had one response that scored at a higher level. This serves as an alert that the test taker is operating across a range of proficiency levels with this skill. This situation is quite common for test takers in the Novice and Intermediate ranges, mostly due to limited topic exposure and control.
To view or listen to the test taker's Writing and Speaking responses, click the score shown in that area of the detail report. The Writing response will be displayed. Click the Play button to listen to the Speaking response.
