Symptom
When searching for students to test from Manage Test Sessions > Find Students to Test, you may get the message "Zero student profiles found".

Explanation
There are multiple reasons why students may not show up in a search. See the steps in this article to resolve the issue.

Solution

Verify the search criteria

  • Check the spelling of the name. You can search with the first 3 letters of the name.
  • Broaden your search criteria. If it is too specific it may bring up no results.

 
Search using "No School Assigned"

If proctors add students on the fly, the profile may not be assigned to a school. When searching for a student, change the School menu to "No School Assigned" and try the search again.

Note that students who are not assigned to schools will not show up on reports. See Fix Student Profiles for help with completing the student's profile so they appear on reports and are easier to find in test sessions.

 
Check your test term dates

Manage Test Sessions searches for students who are rostered to the current term. If the term for which you are setting up test sessions have not yet begun, you may not find any students when searching. A user with the System Administrator or Assessment Coordinator role can check the current term dates and modify them if necessary:
  1. Go to Modify PreferencesManage Terms.
  2. Select the current term, then View Update Terms.
  3. Verify that the term is active and check the test window start and end dates.

 
Verify that the students you are testing have been correctly rostered for the current testing term:

In order to test, your organization must roster students for every testing term. See Fix Student Account Profile to make sure the student has been added to the term. If students have not yet been rostered for the term, contact the data administrator for your organization.
