Restrict Location

[Printer Icon] Print this article

At times, an instructor might need to allow a student or a group of students to take the test from somewhere outside of specified location (IP range). In this case, you can use the Test Availability Exceptions to exclude specified students or groups of students from the location restriction, as shown below:

Students with this exception enabled will be able to take the test from any location, even if it is restricted for other students.

In a high-stakes testing situation you or the proctor can override a restriction that has been enforced by the system. From the Test Begin page, you can see the individual instances when users were prevented from accessing a test, along with an option to override this restriction to allow a user to continue taking the test.

To enable Restrict Location:

1. Beside the deployed test, click the chevron button and select Edit the Test Options.

2. Scroll down to the Restrict Location section.

3. In the drop-down box, select No restrictions, one of the preprogrammed locations, or Custom IP Filter to put in your own list or range of IP address the students are allowed to take their test from.

4. Click Submit.
