Errors and warnings only occur when a student has tested and the test has been submitted, but an automated check indicates a problem with the data. Errors and warnings include information about the data problems that triggered the error or warning. Errors must be fixed for the test to be processed by the system for scoring and reporting. Warnings should be fixed, but do not stop the test from being processed.

When student testing warnings or errors exist, the flag at the top of any non-task page will change colors to notify you from

Related Information

Each warning and error provides a description of the problem so that you know what must be done to fix the data.

Here is a description of the three categories of warnings and errors:

CategoryDescription
Student Errors

These records contain data that either cannot be matched or that contain invalid data that cannot be saved.

These must be resolved before the record can be processed.

Student Critical Warnings

These records should be examined for completeness and validity. You should prioritize fixing these warnings.

These are things you should resolve, but if you do not, the record can still be processed. Testing program policy determines whether you are required to resolve these.
