While you are in a test session, a scenario may arise where a student needs to have a test resumed by an individual in PearsonAccessNEXT with Test Administrator roles. This can be caused by a variety of reasons but a few common ones we have seen from our Field Test / Infrastructure Trial are:
- Device does to sleep, such as if a laptop and a student closes the lid to use the restroom
- The test is exited by accident when not 100% complete
- Student goes home ill during the test
If any of these occur the test will need to be resumed.
