Overriding a Test Restriction

Situation: In some cases, students are prevented from completing a test because the test frequency is set to “once per term.” Proctors receive a message similar to the following figure. There is, however, a way to override this restriction.

Example: If students started to take a math test that they should actually take the following day, the proctor might have chosen to terminate the test. By default, terminated tests count the same as completed tests under the “once per term” frequency restriction. As a result, the students cannot take the math test on the following day.

Step A: Exclude the Student’s Test Event

Excluding the test event from reports also excludes it from the test restriction.
