Properties of a test
When creating a test, you need to define its properties first. Here you decide how the test will look and work.
First, name the test and put some description. You don’t have to include any parameters, they will be displayed automatically.
Then, define parameters like the limit of attempts or time limit. You can also decide, which result from the test will be the official one. If you turn on Save the best results only, the official result will be the best one. If you turn it off, the official one will be the last one.
It’s also helpful to turn on Recalculating the results after editing questions - if you make a mistake when creating the test, users’ results will change after you correct that mistake.
Next, you can create messages that will be displayed at the start and the end of the test. You can use default messages or you can create your own.
Then you can turn on the summary at the end of the test. You can decide what exactly will be visible in that summary.
The rest of settings are already known to you - certificates that can be downloaded after you finish the test, cyclicity, additional data, groups etc.
At the bottom click Add and your test is created.
Categories of questions
You need to create at least one category of questions. In the category you define the amount of points gained for a correct answer and how much time there will be for each answer.
Whenever you create a new test, a category named “Category 1” is automatically created.
A category can serve as a pool of questions. You can define that out of all questions in the category, the test will choose random 15 and display them to users.
In a category you define how many points users will gain for a correct answer for each question from this category.
You can also set the time to answer each question. If you do that, you can define bonus points for answering quicker.
Save the settings of your category and create another one or go to creating questions.
You can add screens and questions to your test. A screen is simply a text that can serve as an instruction for example.
To start, go to the Questions and screens tab and click Add.
Choose the Add a question option and you will be redirected to settings.
You have to choose a category and decide if an answer is required.
Then you have to choose the type of this question - you can choose from many different types, from a simple single choice question to tasks where you have to match some elements or fill the gaps in a text.
Then you have to input the question and possible answers below.
Click Add and return and you can keep adding more questions.
Import of questions
Apart from adding questions manually, you can import them using an Excel file. All you need to do is choose the Import questions option.
There you can download the template you can use to import questions.
Fill in columns in the template - it’s the same set of information that you fill in when adding a question manually. Every column in the template has an explanation.
When you’re done with the template, go back to the platform and choose the file from your computer to import questions.
Click Next and then you should be notified that everything is okay.
Click Finish and then questions will appear on the list.
Answers and stats
For every test you can check users’ results and their answers for each and every question.
In the Results tab you can check how many points (in percent) users got.
In the Answers tab you can see individual answers to every question in the test.
The last tab, Stats, shows you statistics regarding every question.
Each tab shows you a list, so you can create your own views that will filter information presented there.
