SettingNotes

Exam Import/Export Mode

LYNX will either import exams in 25Live as additional meeting pattern profiles (also called "segments") on the original event, or as separate events with their own reference numbers.

Use Default Exam Event Type or Exam Event Type Translation

(displayed if you selected “Exams as separate, related events” above)

Choose one of these options:

  • “Use Default Exam Event Type” if you want the default exam event type entered in the configuration setting below to be the 25Live event type for all exams.
  • “Use Region Codes to Exam Event Types translation” to use your defined SIS region codes to 25Live exam event types translation rule to specify the event type of each exam.
  • “Use Campus Codes to Exam Event Types translation” to use your defined SIS campus codes to 25Live exam event types translation rule to specify the event type of each exam.
  • “Use Institution Codes to Exam Event Types translation” to use your defined SIS institution codes to 25Live exam event types translation rule to specify the event type of each exam.

Default Exam Event Type

(displayed if you selected “Use Default Exam Event Type” above)

...

If exams are imported as independent events, this setting determines their event type. It operates similarly to the event type option in LYNX Settings - Events.

Define Exam Head Count Information

Choose one of these options:

...

This setting determines how LYNX sets the expected and registered head count values on the exams. It can either use the same values as the original section, or it can use the section's registered head count for both.

Adjust Exam Head Count

Choose one of these options:

  • “Do not adjust” if you want the each exam’s Expected Head Count (EHC) and Registered Head Count(RHC) to be the same as its associated section’s EHC and RHC.
  • Identify a multiplier for the exam EHC and RHC (from 1.0 to 5.0)” if you want each exam’s EHC and RHC to be a specified multiplier higher than its associated section’s EHC and RHC as defined in the “Expected Head Count Multiplier” and "Registered Head Count Multiplier" configuration settings below.
  • “Use the exam seating multiplier from the SIS” if you want each exam’s EHC and RHC to be the multiplier specified in the SIS higher than its associated section’s EHC and RHC. For example if the seating multiplier in the SIS is 2.0, and an imported section’s RHC is 45, its associated exam will have an RHC of 90 (45 x 2).

Expected Head Count Multiplier

(displayed if you selected “Identify a multiplier for the exam EHC and RHC...” above)

Enter the multiplier you want applied, from 1.0 to 5.0. For example, if you enter 1.5 in this setting, and an imported section’s EHC is 30, its associated exam will have an EHC of 45 (30 x 1.5).

Registered Head Count Multiplier

(displayed if you selected “Identify a multiplier for the exam EHC and RHC...” above)

...

This setting adjusts expected and registered head counts by a specified multiplier, which can be between 1.0 and 5.0.

It is useful for privacy spacing or other circumstances when you might want to treat a class as though it requires more than one seat per student, such as social distancing measures.
