Start a New Session button was designed so teacher can run a new session without forcing the users to exit and re-login.
I'm not clear, which application has the "Start A New Session" button? The SMILE Teacher Desktop app, or the SMILE Student app?
The SMILE teacher desktop app has the "Start A New Session" button which allows all the students to just re-create the questions without logging out. When the teacher press this button, SMILE should ask if he/she wants to save their current session before starting a new session.
Is this a duplicate of: #9 ? Can you clarify if these are the same issue?
Also, does "Start a new session" cause the server to drop all existing questions? I think "Retake" is the feature that keeps the questions but restarts with the questions.
