Learning to Use Testwise
The starting point in learning how to use Testwise is to read our Getting Started page, which is written for all new users to our system.
Understanding the home screen
The Testwise home screen is the first page you will see when you log into the system. It shows all the functional areas that you can access.
The image below shows that a user named 'User2 - SchoolAdmin' can access the My Organisation, Users, Sittings, Students, Services and Reports areas of the Testwise system. Another user may have access to fewer areas of the system, which means they will be able to see fewer buttons on their home screen.
Notice that in the top right of the page you can see a Help button, which you can click whenever you want to view these online help pages.
Whenever you want to return to the home screen, click the Home buttonwhich is the logo displayed on the top left of the page.
