test event typically occurs once per academic year and up to once per quarter. It is defined by the assessment program (for example, Logramos or CogAT), the testing period (usually a season or date range), student roster(s), and scores to be reported. Test events contain test assignments.

Test assignments specify grades/levels to be tested, test groups, and locations. Assignments are subsets of events. They narrow the content and grades/levels of the larger event, and they connect test events to test sessions.

Test sessions are set up within test assignments in DataManager. They are then accessed by the proctor of the session (the Proctor, Teacher, or Admin role) and used to administer the actual tests. Sessions include approving students for testing, helping students to log on for online testing, monitoring the progress of online testers, and concluding the tests.
