You can create a new user whenever a new person needs to access the Testwise system.

When you create a user:

  • It is added to the User List, so you can view or modify their details at a future date.
  • The newly created user receives a New User Profile email, which contains an Activate Account link. When the new user clicks the Activate Account link, the Reset Password screen is displayed so they can change their password to one of their choosing, rather than using the one that the System Administrator or School Administrator chose for them.  

Note: You can only access the Users functional area if you have the relevant user permissions. The School Admin user role can access this area, but the Teacher role does not have access to this area.

To create a new user

1   Click the Users button  from the Testwise home screen.

All existing users are displayed within the User List.

2   Click the Add User button.

The Add User screen is displayed.

3   Enter details about the new user in the boxes displayed. See Understand User Details for guidance about the type of information you can enter in each box.

4   Once you have finished entering user details, double check that you have entered information in all mandatory fields, otherwise you will not be able to complete the process. You can identify mandatory fields by finding field names that have an asterisk displayed alongside them. For example, if the Email box is mandatory, then it will be displayed as Email *.

If a red warning triangle appears alongside a field, hover your mouse over the triangle to read the error message. Change the information you entered in that field to ensure it contains information that will be accepted by the system.

5   When you have finished entering user details and no red warning triangles appear on the screen, click the Save button.

A green "User Successfully Created" message will be appear in the bottom right corner of the screen.

You will now be able to see the newly created user at the top of the User List.

Note: If you selected the Test Taker role then the new user will appear in the Student List. It is not recommended that you select the Test Taker role for a new user.
