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.

Warnings and errors serve only to inform you. Each one includes a description of the problem so that you know how to fix it.

Categories help you triage and prioritize your efforts when time is limited.

For example, if a record has one error and two warnings, you must fix the error, but then you can save the record and come back later to fix the warnings.

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 for reporting.

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 for reporting.. Testing program policy determines whether you are required to resolve these.
