To make an online test, first, you have to sign in to Ans. Read here how this works.
When an online test is created by an instructor, it can be found in a course, as can be seen in the image below. Read here how to find a course.
When a test is open for the student to start, it looks like the image below. Here it can be found in what time frame the test is open. When it is open, the START button is shown. If it is not (yet) open, the START button is not shown.
After clicking START, the test starts. In the image below it can be seen that the test consists of two questions (see the top right corner). The first question consists of two subquestions, a multiple choice question, and an open question. After answering the questions, the button NEXT in the bottom right corner can be used to go to the next question. You can always go back to this question when the test is not yet submitted. When the instructor has set a time limit, this will be shown in the green top bar.
The next question again consists of two subquestions. For the first subquestion, a file should be uploaded, for the second a numerical answer should be given. When this is done, click FINISH TEST in the top left corner can be used to go back to the start page of this test. This button only saves your answers, it does not submit the test.
When back in the start screen, a new button is found: SUBMIT TEST. This button submits your test so it can be reviewed by the instructor. There also is the option to change your answers or add answers by clicking RESUME. This way you have access to all questions.
NOTE: After the test is submitted, your answers cannot be changed any more!
After clicking SUBMIT TEST, the following pop-up appears. Once sure of your answers, click SUBMIT and the test will be reviewed. Your result will be shown once the instructor is done reviewing and decides to publish the results. This will be shown in your window after clicking the tab Result in the menu of an assignment.
The results are now submitted. The page will now look like the following.
Once the instructor has reviewed all questions, the instructor can publish the results. When this is done, you, as a student, can find your result in the tab Result. As seen in the window below, here you can see your grade, the number of points per question and depending on what the instructor publishes more information about your test can be found here. Also, a not is placed here how much time is left to ask questions about your test to the instructor. Read more in this article on how to send and read messages to/from the instructor.
