How to set a personal report lifespan

For versions:

This article explains how to set a lifespan of a personal report after the test manager resolves it.

Configure the lifespan of a report

To configure a candidate’s personal report’s lifespan, navigate to Tests/New test to start the quiz wizard.


  1. In step 2, “Settings,” select the option “Configure report lifespan.”
  2. Set the report duration in hours, minutes, or seconds.

“Configure report lifespan” option is used to set for how long the question details will be visible to the candidate after opening the personal report.

Then follow these steps:

  1. Finish the quiz wizard.
  2. Create a testing session.
  3. Assign the candidate to the testing session.

After the candidate finishes the test, and the managers resolve the test attempt report, he can preview the personal report.

NOTE: Personal report duration is limited to the number of hours, minutes, or seconds defined in the test settings. After the personal report lifespan passes by, the test-attempt details won’t be available to the candidate.

To grade the test attempt, go to the “Notifications” panel, click the notification, and resolve the test attempt report.

The personal report from the candidate’s perspective

When the test manager configures the personal report lifespan, the candidate can preview the personal report details and score within a configured duration. After the reported lifespan exceeds, the candidate will not see any of the test-attempt details.

NOTE: Take a look at the screenshot and see the message “Report details are not visible due to test settings.” That means that the personal report lifespan is ended, and the test-attempt details are not available to the candidate.
