Tests enable you to check users' knowledge in a simple but effective way. Different types of questions allow you to test users in various ways, depending on your goal - you can create simple single or multiple choice questions or test users with joining sentences. Questions have different categories - each category can be worth certain amount of points or have certain amout of time for answer. It's very easy to generate detailed reports from tests.
To start creating a test, just use the "Add a test button - it will move you to the new test's properties.
The "General" section is a place where you fill in the name of the test and optionally add a description and category, which will be visible for users.
Next step is about options - how to pass the test and how it will be presented to users.
First of all, you can decide if the test requires a pass at all or maybe it's not necessary. If you decide that it needs passing, you can set the threshold. In the next option you can limit tries - if you leave the field empty, attempts will not be limited. Saving the best results means that the highest score will be the official one (when someone will past the test with 100% at the first try and then with 50% at the next, 100% will still be their shown result). You can also edit the message shown when someone will use all of the attempts and set the time to complete the whole test.
It's mandatory to define how the questions will be shown, we can also decide the order of answers in the questions.
Next you have some cosmetic options and a very useful one - if you turn on recounting of results, whenever you change something in any question, the results will also change.
Welcome screen lets you define what will be shown on the first page of the test. Then you can also define what will be shown at the end of the test.
You can add personalized messages instead of a default one, you can also decide what will be included in the summary and when it will be shown.
Like in every educational element on the platform, you can add certificates that will be available for users to download after they pass the test. Same with cyclicity - like everywhere, you can set the validity time of the results users get.
When you add the test, new tabs are unlocked - first one is "Categories" where you can change the settings of existing categories of questions and add new ones.
You can name each category, choose how many questions from this category will be shown to users, set the number of points for those questions and time to answer them (when you set the time, you can add bonus points for answering faster!).
Next, and probably the most important tab is "Questions and screens" - that's where you actually add the questions to the test. Just use the "Add a question" button.
For each question, order and ID is set by default, you can of course change it. Then you choose if the question should be visible for users (maybe it's still in progress and you don't want them to see it yet). You need to choose the category and if the answer to this question is required. Then you choose the type of questions and fill in the answers.
Depending of which type of question you choose, setting may vary. For simple single or multiple choice questions, you just write in the answers and set which one is right. For other types, like building or joining sentences, you need to write in beginnings and endings of those sentences and so on.
You can also import questions, using the template we provide, everyting is explained there.
When the test is ready, go to the "Assingments" tab and choose who should do the test - just search by the name and add them.
Last tabs - "Results", "Answers" and "Statistics" allow you to see who finished the test, how did they do and export it all to Excel reports.
When you're done with polishing up the test, remember to go back to its properties and publish it, so it'll become visible to assigned users!
