For the course element Test, the assessment depends on the included question types. Most question types are automatically assessable. The final result of an attempt can then, depending on the configuration of the results view, be displayed to the participant immediately after submitting the test.

In contrast, question types that cannot be assessed automatically are manually assessable. A tutor with appropriate rights must perform this kind of assessment in the assessment tool to complete the calculation of the final result.

A manual reassessment can always be performed for all task types.

For more information about available question types and their assessment options, see the help page Task types in the ONYX manual.

The manual (re)assessment can be user-related or task-based:

The task-based assessment is about assessing all user answers to one and the same test question. In this case, the assessor will not be displayed any user names. The assessment is therefore anonymous.

The assessment of ONYX test results can be performed in a user-related way. In the first step, the assessor selects a user to be assessed and then opens the assessment view of a test attempt. Here the assessor will be given an overview of all questions the user has been asked to answer in the test attempt. For each task, they can see the user’s comments and answers, which can now be (re)assessed.
