Frequently Asked Questions - Lesson Scores

Only the student or CALI will be able to see the score, with two exceptions:

  • The first exception is when the student explicitly indicates that they want to submit the score for review by a faculty member. This would be in conjunction with the LessonLink and/or AutoPublish services. You can learn more about these in their respective FAQs.
  • The second exception is that CALI will use the scores as a way to improve its lessons without revealing any personal detail about the student. When used in aggregate, scores can be used by CALI to determine if there are improvements to be made to a CALI lessons. The aggregate scores of all students who take a lesson may be shared with the lesson's author to see if there are ways to refine or improve the lesson for future students.
No, at this time CALI Lesson scores cannot be deleted by students or CALI staff.

CALI Lesson scores remain available for the life of a CALI account.

Scores from the current semester can be viewed on a student's "My Lesson Runs" page. Previous semester lesson scores will be found in chronological order on this page under the "Past Lesson Runs" tab.

CALI Lesson scores are saved automatically, even if you don't remember to click the "Exit & Resume Later" link at the top of the page within each CALI Lesson." However, they will not be reported unless you click the "finalize my score" button.

Generally speaking, faculty are unable to view student performance on CALI Lessons. There are three exceptions:

  1. Students provide the faculty member with a printed or digital version of the certificate that appears at the end of Lessons. This will provide only the score for the Lesson.
  2. The faculty member creates a LessonLink and can view the scores and question by question performance directly via the "Current LessonLinks" tab for LessonLinks created that semester, provided that they are logged in with the faculty account that created the LessonLink.
  3. The faculty member creates a QuizWright quiz or uses CALI Author to create a self-published lesson and can view student scores and question by question performance via the "My CALI Library" link from the CALI Dashboard menu.

For information please visit the FAQs on LessonLink, QuizWright, and self-published lessons.



Strictly speaking, you can't change the score of a lesson once you have answered all the questions. You can change answers, but the original score will remain.

If you have not finalized a lesson and still have questions to answer, you can resume and finish the CALI Lesson. This will change the final score of the lesson. You are also able to take CALI Lessons as many times as you wish.

Please note: if you are taking a LessonLink CALI Lesson or an AutoPublished Lesson, your professor will be able to see multiple lesson runs. For more information on resuming a lesson, LessonLink or AutoPublish, please see their respective questions in the FAQs.

Generally speaking, only the student knows which CALI Lessons a student has taken and what their score was. However, if a faculty member would like to use CALI Lessons for formative or summative assessment, they have a few options to find student scores.

  1. They can have students submit a lesson certificate that shows their completion and performance on a CALI Lesson. Each certificate lists the students' name, when they finalized the lesson, how many questions were attempted and how many they answered correctly.
  2. If you use LessonLink, you will be able to view the scores and question-by-question performance of your students on a CALI Lesson.
