Home Base Overview

Exploring Schoolnet Assessments


Can teachers use existing assessments they have created in ClassScape – can those be imported into Home Base?
No, assessments that were created in ClassScape cannot be imported into Home Base. However, there is a process for downloading the information (test blueprint) from ClassScape that will allow you to rebuild the assessment in Home Base. Here is the process to get that information from ClassScape is: ClassScape users can go to Manage Custom Assessments/Benchmarks and select "Export Item List" to create a spreadsheet in CSV formatting with the item order, ClassScape item ID number, and objective. Test Administrators or teachers would then use the spreadsheet to find their same items in Home Base (Schoolnet) and rebuild their assessments.
