Symptom
When opening a test session or confirming a test, you get a message saying the test is restricted by term or grade.

Explanation
When you try to confirm a student to take a restricted test, you will see a message with the error "Test restricted by term" under the student's name.

When opening a test session containing tests that have been restricted by term, you will see the message "These students had previously been assigned a test which is no longer available or is restricted by term or grade. If you wish to continue using this Testing Session, please click the "Ignore and Continue" button."

This message occurs when the System Administrator or Assessment Coordinator has restricted a test to certain testing terms. For example, end-of-course tests are often restricted to the spring term.

Solution
If you believe the restrictions are set in error, you can contact your organization's System Administrator or Assessment Coordinator. System Administrators and Assessment Coordinators have the ability to modify test restrictions for the district. Please note that changing these settings will effect the entire district. Changes take effect immediately.

 
How to modify test restrictions:

  1. Select Modify Preferences in the left navigation menu in the MAP Administration and Reporting Center (MARC).
  2. Choose Modify Tests.
  3. Select the tests you wish to change and click Configure Test Settings.
  4. Modify the settings as desired. Note that in order to restrict a test to a particular term or grade, you must first de-select All Terms or All Grades.
  5. Click Assign. The changes will be applied immediately; there is no confirmation screen.
