The exclude checkbox is intended to be a permanent exclusion of data in the account. This is generally used to exclude data from:

  • Managers who have taken the test to see what is on it
  • Test takers who do not complete a test or portion of a test battery
  • Other accidental taking of tests

When you exclude a test taker’s results, you are removing the person’s results from the data used to calculate local percentiles. The local percentile columns, consequently, will update to show the results with the excluded test taker removed.

Before Tests Are Excluded: After Tests Are Excluded:
exclude before wa exclude after wa
n before wa n after wa

If you would like to separate out groups of test takers’ results, we would recommend that you move the test takers into subaccounts.

You can find more details about setting up subaccounts here.
