How can I add a student to a list of candidates?

Updated on

A teacher can add a student that was not registered for a test, to the list of test candidates. However, not every department  allows teachers to do so. Students are supposed to register for tests in advance, so that the  entry requirements for the test can be  checked by OSIRIS.

Whether or not a teacher is allowed to add a test candidate depends on the OSIRIS autorisation (which is based on departmental decisions). Please consult your key user if you have questions about this.

Select the course

Select the course / test  you want to add the student to.

Select the action "Add student"

Select the action link "Add student" from the action menu.

Select the student you want to add to the list

  1. Perform a search to look up the student you want to add to the list.
  2. Select the checkbox at the right end of the 'badge' with the student name.
  3. Click the green "ADD" button.

If you have selected more than one student in the search you have performed, than you can add  all students at once, by selecting all the checkboxes, and then press the ADD button.

If a student is not on the list be aware of the fact that this might have a reason. Perhaps the student did not meet the entry requirements when s/he tried to register for the test in the first place. By adding the student afterwards,you might bypass these entry requirements, set in  the course.

Please be aware that when you decide to add the student,  you may be ignoring these entry requirements for the student.
