Candidates (also known as “students” or “learners”) are people that take tests using Surpass. Unlike users, candidates do not log into Surpass. Candidates only access their tests in the test driver—either in a web browser or SecureClient.
You can retire candidates to prevent them from being scheduled for any further tests. You cannot delete candidates in Surpass. This is to preserve test analytics and item reporting data.
This article explains how to retire a candidate in the Candidates screen.
