About the Tests grid
The Tests grid displays all existing tests you have access to. You can see if tests are valid or invalid, their delivery method, and their status.
|Test Name||The name of the test which is displayed to candidates in delivery.|
|Subject||The subject name the test is associated with.|
|Status||The test status (Draft, Live or Retired) is displayed here. Read About test settings for more information about test statuses.|
|Valid||The test is valid and you can add test forms and schedule the test.|
|Invalid||The test is invalid. This test does not display on the test form screen and you cannot add test forms to it.|
|On screen||The test is delivered on screen.|
|Paper based||The test is delivered on paper.
NOTE: This is now a legacy setting because most tests that are delivered on paper are printed. For more information, read Printing test forms in Test Creation.
In the Filter Tests panel, you can refine what is displayed on the Tests grid.
|Test Type||Filter by Delivered on-screen or by Delivered on paper. This filters the test screen based on whether the tests were delivered on paper or on screen.|
|Subject Name||Filter the Tests screen by the Subject tests are associated with. This only shows tests which are associated with that subject.|
|Status||Select Draft, Live or Retired. This filters the screen based on the status of the test.|
|Test Date Range||Select a valid date range to filter the tests which are displayed on the test screen for a specific date range.|
|Test Name||Enter the Test Name to filter the tests displayed by a specific test name.|
|Test Reference||Enter the Test Reference to filter the tests displayed by a specific test reference.|
