How do I Access the CIRCLE Progress Monitoring Pre-K Offline Assessment

The offline assessment feature can be used to assess students when an internet connection is not available at the time of administration. The offline assessment can also be used in the CLI Engage assessment practice area.

Note: An internet connection is required for the initial setup

This feature downloads the assessment for your class in only one language, English or Spanish. If you need to assess in both languages, you need to complete the process below in one language (downloading the assessment, assessing offline, uploading results) and then repeat in the other language.

The CLI Engage Offline Assessment feature for the CIRCLE Progress Monitoring System can be accessed from the Assessment Practice Area (for practicing the offline feature) or directly from the class view (when conducting the assessment with students).



You must be logged into CLI Engage
Your students must be rostered in CLI Engage
In the SCREENING, PROGRESS MONITORING AND OBSERVATION section of CLI Engage, you must see the assessment that you need to use offline. If you do not see this option, then open a help ticket.
You must be assigned to the class, school, or district, depending on the type of desired report and your account type
