Snapshot Assessments (available only for Reading or Numeracy) are shorter adaptive Assessments aimed at using a minimum number of items to make a broad estimate of a Learner's achievement level. When creating a Snapshot Assessment, Educators must either set a Step level Threshold or choose No Threshold. When a Threshold is set, the Assessment Tool will terminate the Assessment when there is sufficient confidence around the result to categorise the Learner as achieving either below or above the Threshold Step. If the tool cannot categorise the result after about 16 items, it will terminate the Assessment and report a Threshold decision of Undecided. If the No Threshold option is selected the Assessment Tool will not attempt to categorise a Learner as above or below a Threshold Step and will simply terminate after about 16 items. Snapshot Assessments will always report a best fit step and a Scale Score (with a margin of error) whether or not a Threshold has been set.
