The Student role in SSP typically does not have access to SSP main page or any of the Tools unless the Student is also granted Faculty, Manager or Advisor/Coach permissions. This testing guide will focus on activities performed by the Student through MyGPS in order to validate SSP functionality. Much of the information required for Student testing must be pre-populated during testing of the other roles. Specifically, an external student should be added to SSP or a new student account created.  This test student should also be used for testing the Student role in MyGPS and utilized by other roles in order to assist in populating the student test data.

The tools focused on with this testing guide are:

  • MyGPS
  • Intake


Logout of any previous SSP sessions, then login to SSP again as the test student added during Coach role testing. You now have access to MyGPS.
