Welcome to the Janison Insights help portal

Overview of delivering exams

In the Deliver area of the system, you can deliver tests to candidates, and manage the delivery of the tests. This includes the management of assessment events, test sessions and test attempts.


Janison Insights is highly customisable and therefore the entities in your system may have been renamed and the menu may have been customised.

It’s important to remember you will only be able to see the entities in the menu which you have role permissions to use.

Delivery roles

There are two delivery roles, Invigilator, Test Manager and Delivery Manager. When logging into the system, you do so with an account that has been customised to meet the needs of your role.


Invigilators have access to manage test sessions and candidates undertaking the test. Upon logging into the system, they’ll see the links to access their test sessions.


To learn more about the Invigilator role, see the Invigilator section.

To learn more about administering a test session, see the Test session administration section.

Delivery Manager

Delivery Managers have access to most features in the system. Although they won’t need to author tests, they do have access to approve or reject tests, test sections and questions.

They are responsible for delivering, invigilating and marking assessment events.

Delivery Dashboard

The Delivery Dashboard displays an overview of what’s happening and provides quick and easy navigation to the various role-based functions within the system.


This dashboard will only be seen by Delivery Manager, Test Manager and Invigilator roles.

Delivery process

The broad process for delivering a test is:

  1. Create the test – see the Authoring section to learn how to do this step.
  2. Create an assessment event and link it to the test.
  3. Enrol candidates into the assessment event.
  4. Create one or more test sessions which candidates will then join and complete.


If you have the setting to link assessment events to assessment packages rather than a test, there will be additional steps to complete.

After creating the test, you will need to create the assessment package, create the test components and link these to the assessment package and then move into creating the assessment event. To learn more about this, see the Assessment packages section.
