In order for each student to log into the Test Lobby to complete the tests that have been allocated to them, they will need their Student Login Details.
Rather than using usernames, email addresses or password to log into the Test Lobby, students will use a unique 8 digit number.
Student Login Details contain the following information for each student:
- Name - Student Name
- Student Access Code - a unique 8 digit code that is generated for each student and sitting. You can also view each student's Access Code by monitoring student progress.
- Sitting Name - the name of the sitting.
- Date - the earliest date and time that the test can begin. This is the From date and time of the Test Start Period.
- Test(s) - the name of the test the student will be completing.
- URL - the web address to enable students to log into the Test Lobby.
Once you have created a sitting, you can download, save or print a PDF or CSV file containing all the Student Login Details for all the students within that sitting. The PDF file is created in A4 landscape format and contains multiple Student Login Details on each page. If you print the Student Login Details, you can then divide the A4 sheet into sections and distribute the Student Login Details to each individual student. The CSV file contains the access codes and student details in a table format.
Once the student has been given their Student Login Details, the Test Start Period has begun, the test has started in Testwise (automatically or manually), the student can log into the Test Lobby, click the Start Test button and begin answering questions.
Note: You can only download Student Access Details for sittings that have a status of Live. You cannot download Student Access Details for sittings that have a status of Draft, Expired, Closed or Completed.
