Provide tests in OPAL
In the following, you will find described a basic workflow for providing tests in the learning platform OPAL. More detailed information about the learning platform OPAL can be found in the OPAL user manual.
To integrate an ONYX test as a course element into your OPAL course, you as the author and supervisor should plan the following steps:
|1||Login||Log into the learning platform OPAL as a user. To create or edit courses, you need author rights, which can be obtained from your assigned support centre.|
|2||Open course||Open the desired course in which you want to perform the assessment. If there is no course yet, you will need to create and release a new course. The course should contain at least one learning group.|
|3||Assign ONYX resources||Create a self-test, test or survey element in the course and assign it an ONYX resource.|
|4||Assess results||To assess test results, you can use different results views and evaluation options in the assessment tool. These include statistical overviews for ONYX resources and the option of conducting anonymous task-based assessments.|
