Services contains details about the tests and Reports that have been purchased by your school. Most Services contain various levels of tests, different types of tests and also a variety of Reports.
Each Service contains one or more subscriptions, which are for specific time periods.
For example, within the CAT4 service, you could purchase an annual subscription that contains eight different tests (levels Pre-A to G) with up to eight different Report types.
Each subscription contains the following components:
- Tests and Reports - The tests and Reports you are entitled to use.
- Credits - The number of credits that have been purchased. Credits are deducted (subtracted from the total number of credits available but not yet exhausted) when a Student user is added to a Sitting. The credits are consumed (deducted from the total number of credits available and exhausted) as soon as the Student has downloaded the Test Package (at the start of the test). One credit is required for each student completing one test only. Some subscriptions come with unlimited credits.
- Time Period - A specific time period that the subscription is valid for. Once a subscription has expired, all the credits within it are lost.
