LAT Status

LAT Status

An LAT task can have the following states:

  • Open
  • Completed
  • Closed

State diagram

The states are shown in the following diagram.



The Language Tester completes the LAT by pressing a button when he is done. As a result:

  • the LAT is marked as completed, and
  • the Project Manager receives a notification.

As long as the LAT is not closed, the Language Tester can reopen the task. As a result:

  • the LAT is marked again as open, and
  • the Language Tester can continue his review task.


The Project Manager may decide to close the LAT any time. As a result:

  • the LAT is marked closed, and
  • the Language Tester cannot make changes anymore (read-only).
