Review and Approval of Test List Instances

After a Test List is submitted, every Test Instance in QATrack+ is assigned a Status that indicates what type of data the test is and whether or not it requires further review. If any Test Instance within a Test List Instance is assigned a Status which requires review, then the Test List Instance is placed in an Unreviewed Queue so that periodically a physicist may manually review and approve the QC data being generated. (It is also possible to skip the Unreviewed Queue and manual review step using Auto Review Rules).

Details on how to review QC data and/or update the status of a set of tests are given below.

Reviewing QC Data

The number of test lists with unreviewed tests is displayed at the top of every QATrack+ page (provided you have the permissions required to review data).
