Test v1.8

  • Password protection: When creating or editing a test, add a password in the Test security section of the settings. The setting is off by default. The alphanumerical password can consist of between 1 and 32 characters. The password setting and the password is retained when a test is copied, and can be edited by any user who has edit permission to the test. Password tests can be used in the test-mode browser. The password can be changed even after someone has started the test, and ongoing attempts will continue to work. The new password will be required for anyone trying to start or continue the test after the password change was saved. (Dependency on general release on June 12, 2021)

  • Categories: Group questions by topic, difficulty or other criteria. A category has a title and a score, and that score is assigned to all questions in that category. Set tests to randomly pick a sub-set of questions from each category for each student. You cannot select which questions to pick, but the number of questions. Categories tab appears after test is created. We recommend adding categories first and then questions. Max score is determined by the setting in the category.
