  2. Navigate to the Students tab.
    • District Test Coordinator (DTC), School Test Coordinator (STC) and Principals have access to this page.
  3. Search for the student in the list of students.
  4. Click on the View button for that student.

  1. A printable view of all of the student’s constructed responses for that content area will open in the browser. The user can decide to view on the screen or print a PDF.
