This list shows the available student test statuses and describes what each means.

StatusDescription
Ready

The student has not yet started the test: If a student was assigned a test, but never started the test, they would have a status of Ready.

A test session cannot be stopped until students in Ready status have either been removed or marked complete so that all students in the session have a status of Complete or Marked Complete.

Active

The student has logged in and started the test.

If the student exits the test and the status is Active, the student cannot resume testing unless the status is changed to Resumed Upload.

 Click to learn how to resume a test...

To resume a test, click the Active drop-down and select Resume Upload.

Resumed Upload status forces TestNav to check for a saved response file (SRF) on the testing machine when the student logs back in to continue. 

Exited

The student has exited TestNav but has not submitted test responses.

The student cannot resume testing unless the status is changed to Resumed.

 Click to learn how to resume a test...

To resume a test, click the Exited drop-down and select Resume.

 

The Resume status uses only the test data last sent to the Pearson server rather than data saved on a specific testing machine.

For more information on resuming, see Resume a Test.

If the student will not resume testing for any reason, then the status must be changed to Marked Complete, as described in Mark Student Tests Complete.

Resumed

The student has been authorized to resume the test, but has not yet logged in.

 Click to learn how to resume a test...

To resume a test, click the Resumed drop-down and select Resume Upload.

The Resume Upload status forces TestNav to check for a saved response file (SRF) on the testing machine when the student logs back in to continue. 

Resumed Uploaded

The student has been authorized to resume the test, but has not yet logged in.

 Click to learn how to resume a test...

To resume a test, click the Resumed Upload drop-down and select Resume.

The Resume status uses only the test data last sent to the Pearson server rather than data saved on a specific testing machine.

For more information on resuming, see Resume a Test.

Completed

The test has been submitted by the student through TestNav and the data has been processed. This status cannot be changed, except by using Undo Student Test Submission.

Marked Complete

The student has exited TestNav and will not resume the same test, or has never logged in to a test, but the test session needs to be stopped. This status cannot be changed, except by using Undo Student Test Submission.

Mark a test Marked Complete, as described in Mark Student Tests Complete.

To see Student Test & Item Progress, click on Student Test Status (all, except the Ready status).

Related Information

There are instances when a student's test status requires you to do something.

  • If a student exits a test, either intentionally or unintentionally, before finishing the test and you want the student to continue the same test, see Resume a Test.
  • If a student has finished or will not continue a test, but the test was not automatically marked Complete, see Mark Student Tests Complete.
  • In the rare case of a processing problem with a student test, see Undo Student Test Submission so that the test can be processed again by resubmitting a new test.
