    We would also like to be able to do this at the district level.  We have district-wide assessments and it would be great for teachers to be able to directly enter their data.

    Lynn and Melissa:  I have merged your enhancement request with another requesting the same feature. I have also added your comments to it so you can track its development. 

    Thank you!

    This behavior is possible, simply by changing the scope of the assessment from Class to School.  

    Any user can create an assessment, and give it a scope of "school".  Then other users can upload scores to that test simply by downloading a score template file for their student group and the shared school-scoped assessment. 

    The thinking has been that class-scope tests are not shared out side the class.  And that if you want to share a test outside the class, it is actually school-scope.

    When the north-end users’ group was meeting here we talked about a number of safe-guards that needed to be put in place with this. I was wondering as to the status of those. First and foremost in my thinking was making certain only the creator of an assessment could edit it. We talked about the possibility of two different teachers or schools giving an assessment the same name. The 2nd school’s definitions would then over-write the 1st school’s and screw up all of the 1st school’s scores.

    We are coding in the safeguards now.  Only the author will be able to edit.  The author will also be able to delete.  I'm unsure about the duplicate naming prohibition.  I will investigate.

    I've enabled teachers to be able to create School-Scope assessments, to share with others at their school.

    And all safe-guards are in place so they can’t name their assessment the same as someone else, they can’t overwrite someone else’s assessment, they can’t screw-up any of my assessments?

    This is a very exciting feature and I know we have several schools that want to do this. I just want to make certain we don’t end up with multiple schools with “Unit 4 post-test” and they keep overwriting each other or messing up each other’s data. Heaven forbid they mess up any of my data!!

    Thanks for keeping us up-to-date.

    We are iterating our way to this. User-defined assessments can now be cloned, with the existing assessment acting as a template for a new assessment. Currently, users can only clone assessments that they created -- in an upcoming release, users will be able to clone assessments created by others.
