In the Assessment Calendar Area of SchoolPoint, you can set up suggested assessments for the current year, for students and caregivers to see. There are numerous filters, and you can also toggle between calendar view and also list view.
An assessment can be added to an entire class, individual students, or now can exclude individual students.
Reminders can be set so they also appear on the student's assessment calendar.

You can also add approximate / suggested assessment dates via adding/ editing a course for the next assessment year.

Adding via COURSE for following year

The assessment calendar area does require permissions. If you have "Manage Assessment Calendar in Department" you can manage your own department's assessments, if you have "Manage Assessment Calendar" then you can access ALL areas and Daily Planner, and if you have "View ALL assessment calendar" you can view ALL but not make changes.

Please note this is Currently on hold awaiting Google verification
There will be a function in late 2021, where staff in schools who use Google Classrooms, can #assessment in their class calendar of events, and this will push through to SchoolPoint and into their student's Assessment calendars.
You will need to set up an ASSIGNMENT within your Google Classroom, which then allows the date and time of an #assessment to be added. Add the # into the instruction field not the body.

Please ensure the settings are enable for this under Settings => Provider Settings (Google/ Microsoft) => Select "Google" for the provider => Select YES to allow staff to authorise a connection with SchoolPoint. When a staff member first logs in, they will be required to authenticate with Google, and then the #assessments will sync to SchoolPoint.
