Explanation of Test Status Messages on the Results Summary
Scores: What Does the Minus Sign Mean?
A minus sign after the level for a Writing or Speaking score indicates that of the four necessary ratable responses the test taker only submitted one. This serves as an alert that limited evidence was available to establish the score.
How to Request a Reset or Test Deletion:
Avant Client Support: Call 888-713-7887 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
If you have students that accidentally skipped a test section due to technical issues, a phone call to client support with the student login name and test code will bring an immediate solution, as they will be able to reset the test or section. This will allow the student to log back in and select the desired section. We are only able to reset entire sections or tests, and not individual questions/items.
You can also send an email to support for non-immediate requests and questions, listing the student login name, test code and providing a brief description of the issue or topic to help the support team investigate the matter and provide a response.
Individual Detailed Reports
Individual Detailed Reports show the Writing and Speaking levels attained on the Avant WorldSpeak test for each test taker. They provide in clear, direct language what test takers at each level are generally able to do.
Click Report on the Test Taker list to access the Individual Report for a specific test taker
Click Download Excel File to create a report for all test takers on the list (for best results, wait until all testing and grading is complete)

You can create a PDF version of the report if your printer selection includes a PDF writer
If desired, the Individual Report can be distributed to test takers or parents
Each test taker’s report has a scoring graphic for each section of the test. This inverted pyramid has a yellow-filled area that depicts the level attained. The level is also shown in the blue bar for each section of the test.
An additional blue-filled area will appear if the test taker had one response that scored at a higher level. This serves as an alert that the test taker is operating across a range of proficiency levels with this skill. This situation is quite common for test takers in the Novice and Intermediate ranges, mostly due to limited topic exposure and control.
Writing and Speaking Responses
To view or listen to the test taker's Writing and Speaking responses, click the score shown in that area of the detail report. The Writing response will be displayed. Click the Play button to listen to the Speaking response.
