Upload test scores

Administrators upload test scores for students using an Excel template downloaded from Xello. To accommodate different kinds of tests, a customisable template allows you to enter columns and fields as necessary.

Test scores can be uploaded multiple times. Previous scores with the same test date will be automatically overwritten, and scores that have a new date will be added.

noteNote: Only those with administrator access can create or make these changes. To learn more about educator access and permissions, read the article on Educator permissions.
