This information is a part of Testing.

This is one of the tasks to be done Manage a Session.

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. 

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.

How to Manage Sections

Manage Sections for a Multiple Sections Test

When assigning sections to students, check their test statuses.

  • Pearson recommends that you do not set sections for students with Active Status. To assign a section to a student with the Active status, see how to Resume a Test.
  • You cannot set sections for students with the Completed status.

To manage test sections assignment, follow these steps:

  1. From Testing > Students in Sessions, add test session(s) to the Session List on the left of the page. Select a test session. If you have trouble finding your session to manage test section assignment, go to Testing > Sessions, and select the test session(s) that contain the students and return to Students in Sessions and the session(s) will be listed.

  3. View the sections assignments for the selected session. You can also change the session selection from the Session drop-down list at the left of the page. The Session drop-down will list all the sessions you have selected on the  Students in Sessions or Sessions page.

    There are three student section statuses:

    1. Not Started (N): Total number of students who have not started the section
    2. Started (S): Total number of students who have started the section
    3. Completed (C): Total number of students who have completed the section

      The Current column displays the total number of students currently logged in to or assigned that section.

  4. Review the section assignment status. You can either assign a specific section to all students or make individual student section assignments. You can also use different filters available 
    1. To assign a section for all students, click Set Current Sections for All, next to a section name.  And then click Save.
