This article explains what sessions are and has step-by-step instructions for managing them.
What are Sessions?
In the Cambridge English Test Portal, tests are arranged into Sessions. A session will be for one particular test and contains the details of the candidates who have been entered for that test.
You will need to create a session in order to make entries and run tests. You can create as many sessions as you need. When you come to generate the results reports, you can select which session it's for, so it is helpful to have a session for each separate group of candidates.
It is recommended to have a maximum of 10,000 entries in one session, otherwise it can cause performance issues.
If you set up Clients they will be able to create sessions and administer tests using the test credits that you have allocated to them.
How to add a session:
1. Log into the Cambridge English Test Portal
2. Click Sessions
3. Click Add Session
4. Complete the Basic Settings, ensuring the correct details are selected
5. Complete the Advanced Settings and click Create Session
6. The session will now appear in the session-list and is ready to use.
Once you have created sessions you can start making entries. Instructions for making entries can be found here.
