      Assign the candidate to the testing session

          When you create the testing session, assign a candidate to the testing session, directly click the “Add candidates” button.

          When you click the “Add candidates” button to assign the testing session to the candidate:

          1. Select the one or more candidates from the list
          2. Click the “Confirm” button.

           

          After you have assigned the candidates to the testing session, they will see the test in their “My assignments” list.

          Note: Only the candidates assigned to the testing session can start the test-taking process.

           

          Assign the candidate to the self-enrollment testing session

          To add the candidate to the self-enrollment testing session, you should enable the “Candidate self-enrollment” option.

          Note: When the testing session is self-enrolling, the test will be automatically visible to every candidate that visits the “My assignments” page.

           

          Assign the group of candidates to the testing session

          To assign the test to the user group, you need to create a user group and add user members. To create a new group testing session:

          1. Click the “New testing session” button.
          2. Select the group name from the drop-down list.
          3. Click the “Save” button to create a session.
          4. Click the “Cancel” button to discard session creating.

           

          When you select the group name and create the testing session, you can assign group members to the testing session in the “Candidates” tab. 

          On the “Candidates” tab, click on “Add candidates” and select the group members you will assign to the testing session. 

          To assign group members to the testing session:

          1. Select one or more group members from the list.
          2. Click the “Confirm” button.

          Note: You can assign only the candidates that are the members of the selected group. The test will be available on the “My assignments” page only to the selected group members, not every group member.

           

          Assign the group of candidates to the self-enrollment testing session

           

          To ensure that the group member can assign to the session by self-enrollment, you have to enable the self-enrollment option after selecting the user group name from the drop-down list. 

           

          To enable the group member self-enrollment to the testing session:

          1. Enable “Candidate self – enrollment.”
          2. Click the “Save” button.
          3.  Click the “Cancel” button to discard the changes.

          Note: Every group user can access the test after he assigns the self-enrollment test session. When you become a user group member, you will automatically enter the test.
