Purpose of Infinite Campus Assessments


All staff that utilize Behavior, Scheduling, and Attendance modules in Infinite Campus are required to complete an annual knowledge assessment with and 80% or better score.  All Infinite Campus Assessments must be taken yearly to maintain tool rights to enter data into Infinite Campus. Those who have not completed their required assessments by 2:00pm on Sep 3, 2021   will have security rights revoked from Behavior, Scheduling and Attendance modules until ALL required courses have been completed successfully. 

If you pass your assessments by the Sep 3, 2021  deadline, no further action is required.   Only those users who do not meet the deadline will have their tool rights revoked.  If your tool rights have been revoked, check your PSW Transcript (instructions below) to be sure that you have passed ALL of your required assessments.  If you have not, you must take and pass the assessments and then submit a Campus Support Ticket to have tool rights to be reinstated.  If your tool rights have been revoked in error, please submit a ticket so that the issue can be corrected.
