The left is paper that you loaded and the right is entry for answers only!! No entry of questions needed! but questions cannot randomize as other entry styles allow. Ex: Taking a Test as a student from the student portal: ­ As the student takes the test, the ​instructor ​can see the real time entry of answers and who has finished (Online Testing Rosters). You can also reopen the test if they goofed. You can also force finish the test if time ends and the student didn’t finish. (Action> Force finish) If you want to see data (right/wrong), you need to go to overview screen. ­ As long as a time limit isn’t set, the student test can remain open for those with extra time allowed. (under Online Testing­ Administration Settings) ­ A time limit will end their access, but the trainer doesn’t think it will force finish the test. ­ INLINE booklet= the hard copy of the test. ­ Assessment can be paused for everyone to address a common question. ­
Different rosters can be used to give tests at different times and still analyze data for those that have finished the test. Data is analyzed by test not roster so all data can still be collected ­

We are overwriting files with uploads, but without​ end dates​ Illuminate doesn’t delete them. Nathan will work on fixing with a wipe and reload to cleanup these changes.
