To use Monster, P.I., a school or district first purchases a subscription to the web-based teacher rostering & reporting application. Once each teacher has an account, and has signed in, he or she rosters their students (using the “Student Roster” tab) so that the system can generate a passcode for each student. Teachers enter students line by line in the web page, or, by importing an Excel file. Note: detailed teacher instructions are available in the application and also at a password-protected Monster, P.I. document at ventrislearning.com/ventris-learning-login.
To have students play through Monster, P.I., the teacher then provides students with the web app link. Because the test is computer-adaptive, some students can finish in as little as 20-25 minutes, while others will need up to 45 minutes to finish. Teachers can then view the student results which include instructional profiles useful for instructional grouping.
