Auto-Save Feature

USATestprep now has an Auto-Save feature built in to our system.

If your students are ever taking a test and the power goes out or if there is a sudden interruption in service, all of their progress will not be lost. Our system now saves the work a student is doing on a test every 10 seconds. If something unforeseen happens, students will receive this message when they log back on to USATestprep:

This should add a little peace of mind for you and your students, especially when storms are rolling through!

    How long are the student answers saved? Last year I had MANY students that saved their work and when they went back to the test their answers were gone.
    Thank you.

    Cassandra, student data is reset every August 1.

    Does the auto save feature work for games and practice assignments as well as tests? Thanks!

    Naomi,
    Autosave only works for tests. However, that means small/medium/large/full tests, as well as domain-level tests and Benchmark tests.

    Is there any way that you can addd a “save” feature to the practice assignments and games? We require our students to copy down all of the notes from USA Testprep for each incorrect response and many of our students aren’t getting finished with the assignments. It would be very helpful for these students who need extra time to be able to “save” their work rather than starting over the next day.

    Tammy,
    There currently is not a way to autosave all activities on the site.
    In your circumstance, though, student could always copy down their missed questions after they are through with the activity. This would allow them time to complete the activity- practice or game- in a reasonable time.

  7. Tammy Kinney Says:

    Yes, I realize that they could do it that way, but the problem loses meaning when not addressed at the moment that it was missed. And if they copy down after finished with entire assignment, then they have a “disconnect” with each of the problems that they missed rather than truly focusing on why they missed it at that moment. Is there any possibility that you may consider adding this feature for us?

    We are always looking to improve the site’s usability. This will be added to our “What Users Want” list for future development.
