Accommodations like those included in a Personal Needs and Preferences (PNP) profile are typically entered by uploading a PNP file, as described in Import and Export Data. They can also be entered when students are assigned to a test session, as described in Assign/Unassign a Test. A PNP describes a student’s testing needs and preferences, as described in Accessibility Tools and PNP Profile. The PNP settings available depend your testing program configuration.

If you discover a setting that requires correction before the student has logged on to TestNav, follow these steps:
- If the student is already registered for a test session, remove the student from the test session, as described in Remove Students from Online Test Sessions.
- Adjust the student's PNP settings, as described in Assign/Unassign a Test.
- Add the student to a test session, as described in Add Students to Online Test Sessions. The student can be placed back in the original test session or in another test session, as appropriate for the needed accommodation(s). The test form assigned to the student will be set to a form that is correct for any supported, marked accommodations.
If the student has already logged on to TestNav, consult your testing program materials as the required actions will vary based on program policies.
