Student Groups - New Portal Beta

March 1, 2017 Kelly Basara

Exam Taker Groups will designate specific sections or unique groups of Exam Takers that will be administered assessments. For example, Exam Takers can be categorized based on their academic year, campus, or college within a university. This feature is best utilized with Exam Takers that may be enrolled in the same courses, but located on different campuses. Users sort, filter, and analyze the data separately in a number of different reports. If you do not see this option available, please reach out to your Customer Success Specialist to have it enabled.

1) Once logged into the new portal, click on the Admin tab in the top right corner.

  • Additional Edit Permissions (optional) - Administrators who have access to this group will be show here. If any additional Administrators need access, simply start typing their name in the field provided in order to allow them permission to this group.
