Candidate dashboard

Note that not all organisations subscribe to the candidate dashboard, as some features may not be suitable for their requirements. This dashboard will only be available to you if your organisation has activated this feature.

If active, you can access your tests and test results through the candidate dashboard.

When you log into the system, you will see three sections listing your tests; Ready to start, Upcoming tests, and Past tests. If there is a Practice test available, this section displays too.

System administrators can configure the dashboard to hide Upcoming, Past, and Practice tests, so you may not see these sections.

As you work through your tests, the sections and tiles update to reflect your progress.

Explore the slideshow to view various iterations of the dashboard reflecting a test-taker’s progress at different stages.

Let’s take a closer look at the tiles in each section.

Ready to start

This section lists tests that are available for you to start, and tests you have started but not submitted.

The 'Ready to start' section of the candidate dashboard.

The name of the test displays at the top of the tile, with timing information below the name. The timing information reflects the Timing Options set by the administrator in the assessment event. If the test has a duration set , this value displays below the timing options. In these examples the time limit is set to 30 mins.

If you have not started a test, the Start button displays. Once you have started the test, the button adjusts to Resume. When you have completed your test, the tile moves to the Past Tests section.

Upcoming tests

This section displays tests that are upcoming. You cannot start these tests until the open date. On the open date, the tile moves to the Ready to start section.

Past tests

This section lists tests that you have submitted. The tiles list the test name and the submitted date details.

Two past test tiles on the candidate dashboard

If the test has not been marked, the tile will display as Completed.

Tiles with a test that has been marked will display one of the following results:

20% in red   0 – 24% red

40% in orange   25 – 49% amber

50% in green   50 – 74% green

100% in blue   51 – 100% blue

View results

The View Results button on the tile takes you to a summary page with three sections.

A results tile with 'View results' highlighted.

The Summary section displays the test submission time along with the percentage and score.

The Question Results section offers a visual summary of the items, indicating the ones that were answered correctly or incorrectly. By selecting items, you can access your responses.

The Detailed Results section offers additional information about the items including the item type and max score. You can select the item links to view their responses.

When you select one of the items, it takes you to the test player where you can view your response. The information you can see depends on how the item author configured the feedback in the item. In the examples below, the author included correct and incorrect responses.
