How Do I Access the TX KEA 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.

This example is from the Assessment Practice Area:
