When a user has access to at least one PLC (Professional Learning Communities) group via the Groups module and assessment permissions, they will have access to PLC assessments, which are listed under the Manage Assessments > PLC tab.
This article will describe how to create and manage PLC assessments.
Create PLC Assessments
- From the Launch Pad, click the Assessments flip card and select Create Assessments.
2. The Create Assessment button can also be found on the Manage Assessments screen.
Please note that any selections made in the PLC group tab will disable the selections made in the Assessment Level dropdown.
3. If a user has access to one or more PLC groups, options for those PLC groups will display in the PLC dropdown. By default no PLC will be selected ("Select" appears by default for this dropdown). If users select one of the PLC options, the Assessment Level dropdown will be grayed out and disabled for selection.
If users are selecting items for the assessment, within the Items > Select items by Criteria page, users will see a Show PLC Banks Only checkbox next to the Bank Name dropdown that, when selected, will only show PLC banks from the PLC selected.
Please note that this is only available when the PLC is selected in the Assessment Info page. The options in the filters will reset if the user deselects or selects the Show PLC Banks Only checkbox.
Manage PLC Assessments
When users are on the Recent tab of the Manage Assessments screen, there will be an additional filter in the blue filter bar labeled PLC. It will be the first filter listed. This dropdown will allow users to filter assessments by those associated with a PLC.
This filter will only be available to users who have access to PLC groups. The only options that will display in the dropdown are PLC groups that are available to the user.
When users wish to move assessment data from a PLC assessment, they will only be able to move the data to another assessment within the same PLC.
The message will display as follows: "Select the assessment name to receive the data. Only assessments from the same PLC group will display in the search results."
Please note that this message is dynamic and will only display for PLC assessments.
