Symptom
A student did not pass the combined mouse and microphone readiness check and is now locked out of the test.

Explanation
The combined mouse and microphone readiness check is intended to prevent students from beginning the test if they are unable to follow the directions, speak aloud when prompted, and maneuver the mouse. If a student struggles with the readiness check, he or she becomes locked out of the test.

Solution
To allow the students to test again:
  1. Find students who are locked out by checking the Need Help with Equipment column of the Class Dashboard.
    • If you have a large class, you may need to scroll to find the students that have failed the equipment checklist. 
  2. Troubleshoot possible equipment issues:
    1. Check to make sure the mute button isn't pressed on the student's headset.
    2. Reduce background noises, such as an open window or fan.
    3. If needed, switch headsets or move the student to another computer.
    4. If needed, review Setting up Headsets with Microphones in the MAP Help Center.
  3. Decide whether the student should retake the readiness check now, later (after getting more mouse practice), or skip it completely.
    • To reset the readiness check:
      1. Click Try Again in the Class Dashboard.
      2. When ready, have the student log back in to restart the readiness check.
    • To skip the combined mouse and microphone readiness check:
      1. Click Try Again in the Class Dashboard.
      2. Select the Assignments tab.
      3. Toggle to the microphone icon. This setting will bypass the longer readiness check and only a simple sound check will be performed.
      4. Have the student log back in to restart the readiness check.
