Learning Assessments for Learn App (Open Beta)

Learning Assessments are a reimagining of the legacy Test Engine experience. The first phase of this multi-release project was introduced with the February ’20 Release, and Learning Assessments functionality has continued to evolve during subsequent releases.

Upon the release of this enhancement, learners can access and complete assessments via the Cornerstone Learn app.


The following features are currently out of scope for assessments accessed via the Learn app:

  • Searching for assessments using the Learn app's Search functionality
  • Timed assessments


The following considerations apply to this functionality:

  • Learning assessments are still in a beta status, and they can only be accessed in Stage portals at this time.
  • All assessments are mobile-enabled by default.


Learning Assessments functionality is in an open beta status, and is only available in Stage portals. If Learning Assessments have been activated by an administrator, assessments can be accessed via the Learn app by learners. Learners can download the latest version of the Cornerstone Learn app from Google Play or the App store in order to access assessments in their Stage portal.

This functionality applies to iOS version 1.56 and Android version 2.1.8.

Note: Learning Assessments functionality and Test Engine functionality can currently both be active in the portal at the same time.


No special permissions are required for learners to view and complete assessments in the Learn app. In order for administrators to manage assessments, the following existing permission is required:

Learning Assessments - Manage

Grants access to Learning Assessments (Beta) functionality, which allows administrators to create, edit, publish, and delete assessments in Stage portals only. This permission also allows administrators to delete users' assessment attempts.

This permission can be constrained by OU, User’s OU, User, User’s Self, and User’s Subordinates. This is an administrator permission.
