This page describes how to manage sections for a test with multiple sections. For a multiple sections test, you can specify a test section for a student(s) to log in. 

Info

Tests with Multiple Sections

Depending on your program, you may have a test with multiple tests or sections. Some programs refer to these sections as units. These sections are delivered to students as individual tests, but the test is treated as a whole for scoring and reporting. 

Prerequisite for Managing Sections

Before you perform the task described on this page, select a session which is prepared and has started. To prepare and start a session, see Manage an Online Test Session page.
