    ran/run or a just wrong

    We removed this result from the procedure. It was information from a test that is no longer ran.

    We removed this result from the procedure. It was information from test that isn't ran/run anymore.

    Are any of these sentences correct?

    If not, can someone tell me how to say this?

    Say it is no longer run or it isn't run anymore.

    Examples:
    • He ran it.
      He has run it.
      He doesn't run it anymore.


    Does that help?

    :)

    In your examples, it is the passive, which uses the past participle (run), not the past tense (ran).
