Access Check for Understanding Tool

A Check for Understanding (CFU) is an online questionnaire for students to enter their responses and provide teachers with aggregate class data to broadly track student comprehension. This feature is intended as a formative method of assessment to help drive instruction and is not meant as a means for collecting grades for individual students. A CFU is created using a regular assessment from the Assessment Center and is shared with students via a web link. CFUs can be administered throughout the course of a unit, used as an "Exit Slip", or given as a unit pre-test to gauge students' prior knowledge.


NOTE: The district has the ability to control whether the Check for Understanding feature can be accessed or not. Please contact your District Content Admin if you have any questions about this.

The Check for Understanding section allows teachers to create, modify, and track CFUs, as well as examine data trends and review which standards have been addressed overall. For even greater customization, teachers may create their own assessment items in the Assessment Center as part of their My Created Items collection. These can then be added to an assessment that a teacher would like to administer as a CFU. For additional details, please see the associated Create an Assessment Item support guides.
