How do I use assessment tools?

Echo has assessment tools that help students in developing their test taking skills. Within an assessment, students can have access to the following tools if enabled by the teacher:  

  • Highlighter
  • Answer Eliminator
  • Question Notes
  • Passage and Question Divider
  • Bookmark and Review Questions



Use the highlighter during an assessment to emphasize the most important information, and easily return and review.

  1. Click the "Highlighter" button. Once this function has been enabled the button reads "Highlighter: On", and the cursor will look like a highlighter.
  2. Click and drag the highlighter over the desired text to highlight.


To remove highlight from text, hover over the text which will cause a red X to appear. You can then click to remove the highlight.



Answer Eliminator


When completing a multiple choice question, eliminate answer options that you know are incorrect to more easily focus on remaining options.

  1. Click the "Answer eliminator" button. When it is enabled, the button reads "Answer eliminator: On", and a red X will appear when hovering over an answer option.
  2. Click the answer you want to eliminate, and the red X remains there.



Question Notes


Take notes about a question if needed.

1. On questions that have notes available, a speech bubble icon appears. Click that button.


2. Enter the notes in the field that appears.

3. Click "Save".



Passage and Question Divider


Passage questions require answers on content provided in a passage. When the passage is next to the question, the two are divided by a vertical bar. Adjust the width of that bar to make either side easier to work with by clicking the left and right buttons. Click the reset button in the middle to return the bar to its original placement.



Bookmark and Review Questions


Bookmark questions you would like to review later. In review mode, see which questions have been answered, which haven't, and which have notes. Filter the questions in review mode by clicking the variable you would like to view.
