Requesting to have an item Zero- Weighted on an exam
Requesting to have an item on an Exam Zero Weighted
Locate the item and exam in question in Assessment Library.
Take note of the Exam ID and Question ID. Exam ID looks something like [E:X6NYBN] and the Question ID generally looks like [Q:6F0VC7-1].
Contact your districts liaison/key decision maker and let them know you would like a question zero weighted (if you are not sure who your key contacts are, chat into us via LiveAssist and we can tell you!)
As a district liaison: Send an email to email@example.com with the subject “Zero Weight” or chat into us via LiveAssist. In the email or chat, list the Question ID and the Exam ID.
We’ll take care of the rest!
What is this and How does it relate to PowerSchool Assessment
Whether a question and its answers contain an error, or the students just haven’t learned the material yet, zero weighting is a useful tool to make sure student results don’t get penalized unfairly.
Only members of the support team at PowerSchool have the ability to zero weight items.
