Resetting an exam key allows the assessment center to remove candidate information that has been previously pre-assigned.  The Exam Key may then be used for a different candidate.  This process is also used if an error (misspelled name or incorrect Social Security Number (SSN) occurred when pre-assigning an exam key, allowing the key to then be re-assigned under the correct name/SSN.

This function can be performed by any user in the Arkiv system who has Administrator or Coordinator responsibilities.

For step-by-step instruction, please see the document below.
