Create test resource
The function for creating a new learning resource of the type Test can be accessed from the following locations:
- Teach & Learn>Overview>Create learning resource>Test
- Teach & Learn>My resources (entry)>Create (button)>Test
- Home page>First steps (portlet)>Create learning resource>Test
A dialogue opens, which allows you to enter a title and a description for the resource. Optionally, you can also add an image and metadata. The resource is automatically assigned an ONYX test file.
Alternatively, you can also directly open the ONYX question bank to create or import a resource, which will then automatically be assigned a learning resource in the learning platform. For more detailed information on how to create ONYX test content, consult the help page ONYX Editor.
The ONYX question bank can be accessed from the following locations:
- Home page>First steps (portlet)>Question bank
- Teach & Learn>Overview>Advanced functions>Question bank
- Teach & Learn>My resources>Question bank (button in the upper right corner)
For more detailed information on how to create and edit learning resources, consult the help page Course elements and learning resources.
The home page of the test resource pops up automatically when opening a learning resource of the type Test outside of the course context. For example, if you click the link of a test resource in the area Teach & Learn>My resources>Test.
The opening page displays general and advanced information about the learning resource as well as a preview of its content.
For a learning resource of the type Test, it is possible to display more information such as the current location of the test file in the Onyx repository.

To permanently delete obsolete ONYX test resources, all references to the resource have to be removed first. The resources then need to be deleted directly from the question bank.

|3||If the resource is still integrated into one or more courses, open the course(s) individually.|
Then go to the course editor and switch to the relevant test course element.

Now delete the test from the question bank.
