What is the Test Progress Monitor

  • The Test Progress Monitor displays the progress of all open/active testing sessions
  • Sessions remain active until either the student reaches the end of the test and selects confirm, or the assignment is manually closed by using the Accept or Reset commands.
  • The page refreshes and updates 60 seconds allowing you to view for continuously-updated information
  • The following users may access this page: System Administrator, Instructor*, Proctor, or Test Administrator

    *For the instructor to have access to this feature they must be the assignment creator. If they are not (i.e., the system administrator creates the assignments) the instructor must be added to the assignment as a proctor or test administrator. These roles/groups must also be added to the instructors user profile.

How Test Progress is Displayed

The OWL Progress Monitor (formerly known as Test Monitoring) uses test slots to monitor concurrent testing sessions for a given domain. When an examinee launches an assignment, a session row will immediately appear in the test monitor to reserve the examinee's test slot. The progress fields will remain blank until the test taker clicks the Start Test button (i.e., No progress will be shown while on the system check and directions). The way progress monitoring is displayed has been adjusted in the following ways:

  1. Test Items Completed - shows item progress out of the total test items (all items on all sections combined)
  2. Current Section - shows section progress out of total test sections
  3. Current Item - shows item progress within the current section.
