About Required Tests/Scores

As part of an application for admission an institution may require scores from tests such as the SAT or ACT. Tests required are set by academic program (major) and may be displayed to the applicant. Test scores may then be recorded within Campus Cafe.

Test scores may also be used as a pre-requisite for enrollment in a course.

Configure Tests

Each test can contain its own set of scores and if the student repeats a test each score can be recorded.

Add a Test

  1. Navigate to Admin > Score Headers
  2. Click New Score Header
    Type: The overall test. For example AP for Advanced Placement
    Score Name: The test component or, if a composite score, the field that represents the total test score of all components. For example, the History AP test or an SAT composite score.
    Input Order: The order in which the test appears on the student's score input page
    Master Flag: Check to indicate that this test will control the score type (letter, numeric or letter and numeric) of all tests of this type
    PreReq Usage: Check to indicate that score can be used as a requirement to enroll in a course
  3. Click Create

Additional Options

Once created, additional configuration may be made through checking or unchecking boxes next to the test.
