1. Test Settings

a. Test Name – It is the name given to the test by you or by your teammate.

b. Test Alias Name- The test name you want to show to the candidates in the communication emails or while writing the test.

Note: You may write the test name for the reference of your team, but while presenting it to the candidate we suggest, it should be the job role he/she has applied for.
Other Test settings options will help you make the test easy/ difficult even without changing the questions!

c. Type of test

Two types of tests determine how the questions will appear to the candidates while writing the test.

Multiple questions with the mark for review option

Here the candidate will have access to view all the questions on the test screen. At a glance, candidates can see all the questions one by one and choose which one to answer first. Moreover, candidates can mark questions for review. Below is the image of how the Mark for Review option appears on the test platform. There are the color codes for the reference, which include
  • questions not attempted
  • correct questions
  • questions marked for review 
  • questions attempted


Single Questions

Here, the candidate will be able to see only one question at a time. The candidate has to skip or answer the current question in order to proceed  and attempt the next question.

Note: Skipping a Single Question will not allow candidate to return and attempt the same question again.
