This information is a part of Manage Online Tests.

This is one of the tasks to be done Before Online Testing starts.


Some features are only available to some user accounts. Each user account has a user role(s) and permissions associated with it. These permissions control the data the user can view and actions the user can perform. If you do not see a specific feature, your account is not configured to access it. See Manage Users for more information.

Your testing program will provide information identifying user roles and what each is permitted to do and see.

Before adding students to a session, students must be registered, as described in Register Students in a Test Administration.

If you are searching for a student and can't find that student, check that the student has already been registered for this test administration AND has not already been assigned to a different test session within the test administration. If needed, see Move Students Between Online Test Sessions to learn what to do if a student is already in a test session and needs to be moved.
