Finding a test session

Filtering test sessions
Some columns in the Schedule screen can be filtered. You can identify these columns by the Search icon (), Filter icon (), or the expander (). The icons correspond to the different types of available filters.
You can combine filters across multiple columns.
For Centre Name, Subject, and Status, select Filter and choose which of the preset options you want to include in your filter. Use the search field to find a particular filter. Select OK to apply the filter.
For Test Name, Candidate, Candidate ref., ULN, and Scheduled By, use the search field to filter the column contents based on a specified string.
You can also select Contains for partial matches.
For Date of Birth, Start Date, End Date, and Date Scheduled, enter a date in DD/MM/YYYY format to filter the column. You can also use the Calendar to select a date. Use the Next and Previous arrows to navigate between months.
For Date of Birth, Start Date, End Date, and Date Scheduled, you can filter on a specific date or a range of dates. Open the Search menu and choose either Equals to filter on a specific date or Between to filter on a range of dates.
For Start Time and End Time, enter a time in HH:MM format to filter the column. Select the Calendar to use the clock to select a time. Use the arrows to increase () or decrease () the time. Select OK to apply the filter.
For Start Time and End Time, you can filter on a specific time or a range of times. Open the Search menu and choose either Equals to filter on a specific time or Between to filter on a range of times.

Select Reset Filters to clear any applied filters.
Sorting test sessions
Select a column header to sort the cell data alphabetically or numerically in ascending () or descending () order. Select the column header to toggle between ascending and descending order.
Alternatively, you can right-click on a column header to Sort Ascending or Sort Descending.
To fix columns in place in the grid, right-click on a column header and select Fix To the left or Fix To the right.
Select Unfix to return columns to their original place in the grid.
Click and drag between column headers to resize columns.
If there are more than 50 scheduled tests, tests are organised into pages. Each page contains 50 scheduled tests.
Use Next and Previous to navigate between pages, or input a page number to navigate to that page.
Editing test sessions
You can edit test sessions at the Editable status. You can check a test session’s status in the Status column of the Schedule grid.
If the test session is Editable, select Edit Test to open the Edit Test screen.
You can change the Start Date, End Date, Start Time, End Time, and Language of a test session. For more information, read the Scheduling a test session in the (Standard) Schedule screen article.
Test and Candidate details
You can view test details including Centre, Subject Name, Test Name, and Test Form Name, and the selected candidate’s details.
Associated candidates are candidates taking the same test form in the same test session as the selected candidate. Candidates scheduled for the same test as the selected candidate are listed in a table.
For more information, read the ‘About the Schedule grid’ section earlier in this article.

You can Show Additional Details for test sessions at the Locked status.
If the test session is Locked, select Show Additional Details to open the Additional Details panel, which lists the test session’s details including Test Type, Duration, Date Scheduled, Scheduled by, Language, whether the test is Invigilated, and PIN (if applicable).
Select Close or Hide Additional Details to close the Additional Details panel.
