Setting up Test Sessions from a Browser

It's not always possible for users to access a test invite via email.  For example interview candidates, or in-house candidates who are using a training room, where access to their email account is not available.

For this reason, we have introduced a new feature, which allows KS administrators to set up a new test session straight from a browser.

Here's how it works:

Step one
Admin selects the link called, 'Admin Test Setup Login', on the dashboard landing page.

Step two
Admin enters username and password to access their account.

Step three
Admin selects account from the dropdown (for firms with multiple accounts) and selects the required test title from their library dropdown.  This list includes KnowledgeSmart OTS (off the shelf) tests and self-authored tests, displaying in A-Z order.  Test ID numbers are also included, so admins can easily identify which test they want from their library.

Step four
This is where the candidate takes over.  They enter their name and email address, select their status (employee or interview candidate) and proceed to the test landing page.

Step five
This is the test landing page.  This is the same page as user's see when they click on the test URL in their email invites.  From here, the process for taking a test is the same, irrespective of how they were invited.  When they have read their test instructions and downloaded their sample data files, they hit the green 'Start' button to begin their test session.

  1. In Step Four, is it possible to give different email id than First and Last name of the interview candidate? Software is taking first and last name from email id which is very difficult to differentiate between interviewee's as we can't give the candidate email id here which will be there personal email id.
