Symptom
When attempting to modify a test window date, you get an error: "Date range is invalid for the time period".

Explanation
There are two situations that cause this error:
  • District test window: You have set the district test window dates to fall outside the term start and end dates.
  • School test window: You have set the school test window dates to fall outside the district test window start and end dates.

Solution
Check the test window start and end dates for the term listed in the error. The dates must fall within the district term start and end dates. If you are setting a custom test window for a school, that window must fall within the district test window start and end dates.

To verify the district term dates and test window dates:
  1. Go to Modify Preferences > Manage Terms.
  2. Select the academic year and click View/Update Terms.
  3. If you need to change the district dates (for example, extending the district test window end date to allow an individual school to have a later test schedule) you can modify the dates here.
    • If the test window is already marked complete, you must clear the Test Window Complete box and Submit before making any changes to the dates.
