How to make 2017 Contest active on test date

The teacher should sign into ProProfs and select Administration and select the Groups tab.

Note the “+” and “–“ signs next to a Group. These can be clicked to expand your view to see a student group (school/teacher code followed by level and then “S” for student group.

Click on the student group, to see the names of the students in this group. When you are in the student group, you will note that it is highlighted blue.

If you hover your cursor next to the arrow at the top of the screen, you will see a very important feature of the 2017 Contest.

The 2017 Contest is currently set to inactive. This MUST be changed right before students begin to take the 2017 Contest to ensure that they only have access to the 2017 Contest when you want them to take the Contest.

To change the Contest to Active, click on the word Inactive until it turns green and says Active

The Review materials are automatically set to Active and may be accessed by students as soon as they have their user names and passwords. 

When the students are done testing, make the 2017 Contest level inactive. Do not activate again to ensure that students do not accidentally access the 2017 Contest again so that they do not lose their scores.
