Creating a new Test Center

Test Centers deliver Tests to Test-takers.

This section tells you how test centers are created, and which users and their associated roles need to be created for a TAO-registered test center to function.

1. Create a new test center.

To create a new test center in TAO, first click on the Test Centers icon in the Assessment Builder Bar. This opens the Test Centers page, with the Library of Test Centers on the left.

The last test center to be edited (either by you or a previous user) will be highlighted in the library.

Next, click on the New Test Center icon in the button bank under the library. This will define a new test center in the selected folder.

Then, label your test center in the space provided on the canvas, and click Save.

2. Assign the roles which your new test center will need.

There are three roles which need to be assigned within a test center:

Administrator: The Test Center Administrator manages the Proctors at the test center, in other words can create and remove proctors, as well as authorize them to proctor specific deliveries. Users with this role can also proctor themselves.

Proctor: The proctor role is assigned to the person who will oversee the execution of a particular Delivery i.e. a delivery session. See the section on Proctoring for more information on what proctoring entails.

Sub-center: Using the sub-center role, test centers can be linked to each other within a hierarchy.

See the section Licensing a Delivery to a Test Center for details on how a test center can deliver tests to test-takers.
