We term pre-test as the data collection/measures before conducting an experiment and post-test is data collection/measures after the experiment. How do we term the process of data collection/measures during the experiment (such as physiological measures)? I am looking for a specific "term" to describe the "during-test" event.

People use a wide range of language to describe measurement points in repeated measures design.
For example if you measured some dependent variable on multiple occasions you might have something like:
Obviously such a design has aspects that are consistent with a pre-post test design, but it has more time points than just that. So my suggestion is to just have clear descriptive labels for the measurement points.
I believe the prefix you're looking for is per. In latin, pre means "in front of", per means "through" and post means behind.
