MobyMax Tests offer customizable grade-level, standard, and skill assessments that teachers can use to periodically evaluate students' comprehension of specific concepts throughout the academic year. Please note, these tests are only available to teachers using the Classic version of MobyMax. Teachers using the New version of MobyMax can benefit from our enhanced Moby Quizzes.

Unlike Placement Tests, which are formative, adaptive assessments designed to identify skill gaps in students, MobyMax Tests are non-adaptive evaluations that teachers can customize according to specific grades, standards, or skills. Consequently, the tests tend to be shorter in length, focusing on a smaller set of materials. Both Placement Tests and Tests can be assigned throughout the academic year, provided the teacher has a MobyMax license for the subject, and both impact progress monitoring data.

  1. Sign in to your MobyMax teacher account.

  8. Select the grade level, standards, or skills.
