How do I create a formative multi-grade level assessment?
From a Mastery Connect tracker, you can create an assessment that contains standards from more than one grade level.
A tracker must include multiple grade-level standards before you can use it to create multi-grade level assessments. To include multiple grade-level standards on a tracker created from a curriculum map, you can add the standards to the map. To include multiple grade-level standards on a tracker that was not created from a map, you can add them directly to the tracker.
Once you add other grade level standards to your tracker, you can create an multi-grade level assessment from it.
Add Standards to Curriculum Map
If a tracker is based on a curriculum map, add additional grade standards to the map. In the Global Navigation menu, click the Maps link . Then, on the Curriculum Maps page, click the curriculum map name .
To add standards to the map, hover the cursor over the Curriculum Map Options icon  and select the Add Standard option . Add standards from as many grades as needed.
