Groups: An Overview

Groups are organized collections of Test-Takers who take the same assessments throughout the duration of a course of study.

This section provides an overview of how to manage your Groups of test-takers, including what you need to do to create Groups, add new test-takers to Groups, and how to re-use the same groups in different locations.

1. Creating a new Group

Since a Group is made up of individual test-takers, it is necessary to create a profile for each test-taker (see the section on Creating a Test-taker) prior to assigning test-takers to groups. Once this has been completed, groups of test-takers can be created. See Creating a new Group for information on how to do this.

2. Extending a Group

The section Creating a new Group also contains information on how to add test-takers to existing groups.

3. Importing and Exporting Groups

Groups of test-takers can be imported to and exported from different storage devices, to enable them to be used in different test scenarios. For more information on how to do this, see Importing Groups and Exporting Groups.
