Introduction

In your LMS, testing is a very important tool that allows you to manage various configurations to better fit your training needs. Once you’ve set up your questions and answers, you will need to set up your Test Options.

Begin by accessing the Admin Menu, then pressing the Course Management subitem in the E-Learning section. On the Course Management page, find the course in the list, click on its description and move to the Training Material tab.

In the list of training material on the Training Material page, find the test that you want to configure, then press the menu icon in the test’s row and select Edit from the dropdown menu. Now, you will be redirected to the Edit page. In the action bar at the top, press the Test Options item.

On the Test Options page, you will see three tabs on the left side: Set Question Display, Set Attempt Options, and Set Feedback Options. Refer to the sections below to learn more about the options in each tab.

Set Question Display

This tab is divided into three sections: Page View, Question, and Answers View. Refer to the table below to learn more about each option.

PLEASE NOTE: If a user has started but not completed the test (status of In Progress) for which you want to configure the test options, you cannot configure the options in the Set Question Display tab except for the options in the Answers section. The rest of the options in the first two sections will be disabled.

Set Attempt Options

This tab displays all options in one section: Test Options. Refer to the table below to learn more about each option.

PLEASE NOTE: An attempt for a test is counted when a learner submits the test, not when a user enters the test. This also means that if you’ve set a time limit for each test attempt, the time limit will begin from the start at every attempt before a learner has submitted the test.

Additional Notes about Test Options

It is recommended that you do NOT unenroll a user from a course in which he or she has a status of In Progress for a test learning object. If the user must be removed while still In Progress for a test learning object, you must first reset the user’s tracking data for the test (manually set it back to Not Yet Started) before the test options will be enabled for configuration again. You can perform this action from the course report area.
