Overview: Test centers

Test Centers deliver the assessments assembled in TAO to Test-takers. They are typically institutions in the education sector. This section provides an overview of the role test centers play in the TAO environment, looking at how to manage them and how to deliver tests from them. Note: Test centers form an integral part of the Premium/Ignite Edition of TAO (or higher versions). If you are using the Community Edition you will need to install the extension taoTestCenter. See the Extensions Manager section of the User Guide for how to install this.

1. Managing test centers.

Each test center needs to be registered in TAO. Typically, the Global Manager would set up the test center structure, and create the users with the appropriate roles.

For more information on how to add a test center, and which users and their associated roles are needed, see the chapter Setting up a test center. To import a test center, see Importing a test center.

For information on how to remove an existing test center from your test center library, see Removing a test center.

2. Delivering tests from test centers.

Before a test center can deliver a test to test-takers, there are several steps which need to be taken. See the chapter Delivering tests via test centers for details on this.
