When you align a Naiku assessment to an assignment in Infinite Campus, students can launch into Naiku to take that assessment directly from within Infinite Campus. They do not have to log into Naiku separately. Also, the scores from the Naiku assessment can be transferred back to the gradebook automatically.
To align a Naiku assessment to an assignment in Infinite Campus, log into Infinite Campus and go to Campus Instruction, Grade Book and choose to Add a new assignment.
Enter an Assignment Name and other required fields in Infinite Campus. Optionally, if you do not want students to see the test link initially, uncheck the Portal box. Later, edit and check the Portal box when you are ready. Assign the test to multiple sections with the Add/Remove section button.
Next, scroll down to For Students and click on the External Learning Tool button.
Then click Naiku from the External Tool Detail page.
This will sign you into your Naiku account and directly to the Assessments page. From here, you can choose an existing Naiku assessment or create, upload, or search for one to align to the Infinite Campus assignment.
When viewing the chosen or created assessment, click "Use this assessment" to link to Infinite Campus.
You'll see the Assessment Detail screen again next, but now with the Naiku assessment information. Check Accept Scores if you want scores to be transferred to the Infinite Campus gradebook immediately as students complete their test. Click Save, then Close. The assessment is ready for students to take.
Note that you may not want scores to be transferred to the gradebook immediately. For example, if you have open-ended items that require manual scoring you may want to wait until those items have been scored. In this case, leave Accept Scores unchecked initially. Once students are finished, you can come back to this screen in the Infinite Campus assignment and choose to Accept Scores. Then go to Naiku to Close and Score the test and do your manual scoring of the open-ended items. After you finish the scoring in Naiku, the scores will automatically be transferred into your gradebook.
