  • Testing bulk enrolment into Groups
  • Testing the difference between separate and visible Groups
  • Testing whether your private Forum really is private.
  • Testing whether the things you need to be hidden from view really are hidden from view (and whether they are available when the time comes for them to be revealed).
  • Testing whether your Grouped resources and activities are displaying to your different Groups and Groupings as intended.
  • Testing whether emails from news/announcement forums are working, and how they behave, so you can instruct students about settings in a way appropriate for your course.

Test account limitations

The accounts are Moodle only cannot be used to access other UCL services requiring full user accounts, these include:

  • Library facilities that require UCL log-ins
  • The Lecturecast system
  • The Portico system
  • The MyPortfolio system

Basic Pointers

  • Treat the login details as confidentially as your own 
  • Only ever use them in a Student role
  • Testing Turnitin? Set it up as a DRAFT and not to add submissions to the Student Repository - because test documents submitted to Turnitin's repository are difficult to remove and should only be submitted under the name of the actual author - not a test account.
  • If you test accounts are used on a live course (as opposed to a Moodle test course) then it is good practice to delete any data associated with testing you've carried out, this could be; Forum posts, assignment uploads, choices etc.
