You can manage sections to monitor statuses and/or control the section in which students begin testing.

When delivering a test over multiple sittings, you can use this to have all students start in the same section.

You can also have students test out of sequence if necessary.

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 Start a Session and Unlock a Test(s) page.
