If you are looking for the steps for teachers to sync their ALL In Learning accounts with AWARE, see this article.
Why Sync AWARE and ALL In Learning?
Class rosters and student synced are automatically synced from AWARE to ALL In Learning.
Multiple Choice tests created in AWARE can be graded with ALL In Learning's fast, easy grading options and the data can then be sent back to AWARE.
AWARE and ALL In Learning complement each other well! AWARE may be used for benchmarks by admins who are used to AWARE's district reporting, while ALL In Learning can make grading those benchmarks easier. In between benchmarks, ALL In Learning enables teachers and teams to drive student growth with daily formative assessments, student engagement, immediate feedback, weekly PLC data, and continuous standards-based progress monitoring.
Things to Consider:
- Class rosters in ALL In Learning are meant to represent the students that are in the room, to facilitate using response pads as a class. Some schools set up subgroup rosters within a class for AWARE reporting purposes instead of using a single complete roster and, since those divided class rosters come over to ALL In Learning as they appear in AWARE as separate rosters, the teacher would need to do some consolidation to be sure that they have a single class roster that represents the actual students in the classroom.
The AWARE software does not allow correct answers to be sent to 3rd party grading systems. So, the reporting available in ALL In Learning will not be meaningful for tests originated in AWARE and distributed to ALL In Learning until they are uploaded back to AWARE, where the reports can then be viewed. Student scores will say 0 in ALL In Learning but will be accurate when uploaded back to AWARE.
- While ALL In Learning has the ability to grade all types of questions, for tests originated in AWARE and distributed to ALL In Learning, only Multiple Choice questions can be used.
- Teachers will need to upload test results from ALL In Learning back to AWARE before the testing window expires. If your AWARE assessment scores won't upload from ALL In Learning back into AWARE, check to make sure the testing window date range set up by the test administrator is still open.
First, Set Up the Connection on the ALL In Learning Side
An admin will need to send a request for your district to be set up for AWARE syncing to firstname.lastname@example.org and include the URL used by teachers to access AWARE for your district. (For example, https://eduphoria.myschooldistrict.net/ or https://myschooldistrict.schoolobjects.com/.)
Then, Set Up the Connection on the AWARE Side
An Aware Data Administrator will need to set this option: Select the Manage tab > Configuration Options > Testing tab. Under "Third Party Response Systems, select "ALL In Learning".
Note: The Aware Data Administrator is often a different Aware account holder than the administrators who assign assessments through Aware to teachers. For those kind of administrators, see the next step.
Set Up a Specific Test in AWARE to be Graded with ALL In Learning
If the teacher is creating the test themselves it should be ready to sync with their ALL In Learning account now.
If the test is a distributed assessment, an admin will need to go into the test, click the Administration tab of the test, go to the "Student Response Pads" section and check the "Allow student response pad testing" option.
Then, get your teachers syncing rosters and grading AWARE tests!
