Welcome to the Understand Scoring Online User Guide
Understand Scoring is designed to teach you about the scoring process, train you to score specific items, give you an opportunity to practice, and then test your knowledge and qualify as a scorer. It is the online training platform for scoring the Arizona English Language Learner Assessment (AZELLA) for Stages II-V Writing and the Kindergarten Placement Test. The Kindergarten Placement Test (KPT) qualification is distinct from AZELLA Placement Test Stage II-V Writing qualification. It is not required nor expected that the same individuals be qualified for both functions.
The user guide was created for online use. For the best reading experience and the most up-to-date information, we recommend using the online version rather than printing.
Accessing Understand Scoring
To access the application, use this URL: https://azella.scoring.pearsonassessments.com
Remember always to log out when you are done with AZELLA training. When you log out, no further information is stored in your profile. When you log out, other people using the computer after you cannot access your profile and cannot affect your practice scoring progress or scores.
If this is your first visit, we recommend that you start with the special information page for your program. The link to your program's special information page can be found on the login page for Understand Scoring.
To begin using the system, either log in or click Enter Educator Home from the login page. The latter gives you limited access without logging in, so you can read announcements and see the available scorer options. You will be required to log in to use any of the other application features.
The login page is also where you will find the link to the special information page for your program. This is in addition to the information contained here about the application itself and how it works. On that page you will learn about customizations made for your program and policies that are unique to your program.
