All students on the list will attempt authentication.
For review, authentication is where we take the FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, DATE_OF_BIRTH and GENDER and send this information to the USBE for verification. This process may take some time depending on how may records you have uploaded.
Once authentication is complete, a screen will appear showing you the results. Any students who authenticated successfully will show a green check mark and ones that did not will show a pink circle with and in it.
You have the option of editing the records that have the on them by clicking on the pencil icon (Right side of page). You can edit some of the details on the record in an attempt to get that record to authenticate. Remember that the only data that is used for authentication is FIRST_NAME, LAST_NAME, DATE_OF_BIRTH and GENDER
You can also delete the record from the import altogether, by clicking on the delete icon.
When you are finished editing and authenticating your students, click "ADD STUDENTS".
It is not required to get every single student to authenticate before adding them to the Industry Exam. You will receive a warning if you have any students that are not authenticated.
Once the students are added, they will show up on the Industry Exam >Industry Students screen as if you had added them one at a time.
