How to assign test managers

This article explains how to assign managers to the test and their roles. It would be best if you had at least an instructor or custom role with specific permissions to manage tests.

Make a user with permission to manage a test

There are two ways to create a new user in the application:

  1. Select the Create quick action option from the home screen.
  2. Navigate to the Users option from the main menu and select User profiles. On the User profiles page, select the Create new user tab.

In the Create new user tab, you can manually add a new user by entering personal information and setting a role. If you want to choose a predefined role that can manage a test, the best option is to select the Instructor role because it has all the permissions you need to enable a test.



If you don’t want to use a predefined role, you can make a custom role and select specific permissions so the user with that role can manage a test. You can do so if you:

  1. Click on the Users option in the main menu
  2. Go over to the Roles and permissions.
  3. Create a new role by clicking on the New role button.


For a user to manage a test, they must have a role with at least these three permissions enabled: Page Access, Assign group members, and Fully manage personal tests and surveys.


Assigning Test manager

To assign test managers, navigate to the Tests option in the main menu and select Manage tests. Please enter the name of the test in the search bar and select it.



Select the drop-down menu option and choose the Managers tab.



When you select the Assign managers option, the pop-up window will appear. In the search bar, enter the username of the user you want to assign as a manager, check the box for the user, and select the Confirm option.



Now that you appointed a user as a manager of the specific test, he can edit tests, create new sessions, assign users to that session, and monitor those users while taking the test.
