    • Pre-ID Not Locked indicates that Pearson has not created the pre-ID labels for those students in that test session, and you can edit their session details.
    • Pre-ID Locked indicates that Pearson has created the pre-ID labels for those students in that test session, and you cannot remove those students from the test session. To remove the student, you must void the test attempt
  4. Click Save.

- You can also add students, access testing materials, and manage statuses. Note that you can add students to a test only when their grade-level matches that of the test.

- If you add students to a paper-based test session when Pearson Access shows preID values for that test session as locked, Pearson cannot create a preID label for the student(s). You may need to contact your administrator to place an additional order for necessary paper materials.

- If a student you attempt to add to a session does not appear in the Student List, he or she may be assigned to another session. Depending on your project configuration, the system may restrict the number of test assignments allowed for each student.
