In this step, you will learn how to adjust the test settings.
In the previous step, you learnt how to add a grading scheme. After adding a grading scheme, you can adjust the settings of your test. This includes adding attachments and enabling different accessibility settings. You can adjust the test settings by clicking on the settings Settings tab.
To add an attachment to your test, click on Attachments in the menu on the left. By default, attachments are hidden from participants and only visible to staff. If you choose to make the attachment visible to participants, then they are able to see the attached files while taking the test. To make an attachment visible to participants, click the more_vert-icon and click Edit. Click the dropdown menu Visibility* and select Visible. The file size limit of attachments is 25 MB per file.
To enable the access, utilities and navigation settings, click on Accessibility in the menu on the left.
- Multiple attempts
For a practice test, you may want to allow your participants to take the test multiple times. You can allow multiple attempts by first enabling the option and then filling in the number of attempts the participants can make. Confirm by clicking Save. Confirm by clicking Save.
- Use password
If you prefer your participants to fill in a password to access the test, you can enable this option. When you click on the Use password box, a random password will automatically be generated for you. You can also delete this password and create your own. Confirm the password by clicking Save. If this password is changed during a live test, participants that are already busy in the test will be able to continue.
Restricted access to other pages
If you want to block your participants from leaving the current test to look at other assignments, such as a previous practice test, you can enable this option to restrict access. Once the participants have started the test, they are not able to leave the until they've submitted their result.
Restrict assignment access locations
If you require your participants to take an exam from a specified location, such as an examination hall at your school, you can enable this option and select one or multiple locations. If you would like to add more locations contact your administrator or find out more information here.
If this option is enabled, participants can make digital notes during the digital test. Digital notes can only be seen by the participants during the live test and not by instructors or reviewers during or after the digital test.
If Spellchecker is enabled participants will be able to see red lines underneath spelling errors. This option uses the built-in spellchecker of the browser. This is not a spellchecker provided by Ans. We recommend to only enable Spellchecker if spelling is not a criterion for the test.
Allow participants to use the built-in calculator. You can select the basic or scientific calculator.
If you enable this option for your digital test, participants will be able to see if the answer they provided is correct, partially correct or incorrect. This option can be set for closed question only.
Live chat (Beta)
If your school has live chat enabled, you are able to communicate with participants during the taking session of your digital test. You have the option to send an announcement to all participants or to start a chat with an individual participant. You can read more about this feature here.
