How to create a testing location

This article explains how to create a testing location.

About testing locations

Creating a testing location facilitates scheduling tests. Combined with the testing sessions feature, it allows the effective creation of tests for different user groups at different locations. 

Each location can be a physical location or a virtual room. It has a predefined time zone and assigned proctors who supervise the test.

If you select the location when scheduling a testing session, note that all settings of testing location will be applied to the testing session, particularly:

  1. The proctors assigned to the location automatically become the proctors of that testing session.
  2. The time zone of the location automatically becomes the session time zone.

Accessing the page

Hover over “Tests” in the main menu and select “Testing locations”.
