How to create Tests

    You can edit the test by deleting/adding skills, changing the section settings, set negative marking, change test settings, and more. To edit any test, move it to the draft mode. Tests cannot be edited in the Published mode.

    C) Understanding Automated and Manual Selection of Questions 
    Automated Selection - In Automated selection, the system will auto-select the entire skill library's questions. E.g., If the number of questions for a section is 10, with Automated selection, any 10 questions from the library will appear in the test. In this case, you will not know which questions will appear in the test. After making any changes, please click Save Skill for the changes to take effect.

    Notes:
    By default, Automated Selection is always enabled unless you choose to select questions manually.

    Please check if the Randomization feature is enabled in Test settings. If Randomization is enabled, any 10 questions from the skill bank will appear in the test. If Randomization is disabled, the skill bank's first 10 questions will appear in the test sequentially.

    Manual Selection - In Manual selection, you can view and select each question you want to appear in the test. 

    Manual Selection of question

    Please check if the Randomization feature is enabled in Test settings. If Randomization is enabled, any 5 of your chosen questions will appear in the test. If Randomization is disabled, the chosen questions will appear in the test sequentially.
