A test generally consists of multiple tasks, which can be processed one after the other. For navigation purposes, the navigation tree in the left pane as well as the navigation buttons and will be available to you. The ONYX Testsuite remembers your responses. The submission of your response is only necessary if you want to complete the attempt to solve the task, for example to be able to view feedback.
The navigation tree gives you an overview of the test structure and the tasks to be processed. The exact number of tasks can be found in the lower navigation pane (). Via the navigation tree, you can directly jump to the individual task pages.
The navigation tree further provides you with an overview of the processing status:
The view and the navigation possibilities depend on the individual test settings for the navigation and presentation.
The default setting is a non-linear navigation. You can freely navigate between the single task pages.
In the case of a linear navigation, you can only process the task pages one after the other by clicking on the next button. Jumping to specific tasks via the navigation tree is not possible. Similarly, it is also not possible to navigate back and forth between tasks.
The default setting is the display of one task per page.But also if all tasks of a section are shown on one page, you can still submit the tasks individually. A navigation is possible from section to section.
In the settings for the test implementation, it is further possible to hide the navigation tree.
You can use the buttonto complete a task. If the task is still unprocessed or not completely answered, a corresponding warning message will appear.
Pressing the button will end the current attempt to solve the task and start the assessment. Depending on the settings, you will then be given feedback on your solution, information on the assessment, and the correct solution.
If there are multiple attempts possible per task, you can also start a new attempt at a solution (). The number of attempts will be displayed to you per task ( ).
The display of the assessment information (feedback, points achieved, right/wrong, and solution) is dependent on the settings for the test implementation.
In the case that the display of the assessment information was disabled, the buttonwill not appear because an assessment of the individual task during the test implementation will not be necessary.
You can use the buttonto interrupt a test. All information about the test (including previously given answers and inputs, processing status) will be saved so that you can later continue the test where you left off.
In the settings for the test implementation, the option suspend test needs to be enabled.
You can use the buttonto complete a test. If the task is still unprocessed or not completely answered, a corresponding warning message will appear.
Pressing the button will complete the whole test and assess all (not yet evaluated) tasks as well as the entire test. Depending on the settings, you will then be given feedback on your solution and information on the assessment.
Both the entire test and individual sections can be limited with regard to their processing time.
- : Remaining processing time of the entire test
- : Remaining processing time of a section
The remaining working time will be constantly displayed to you. If the working time has expired, the test will be automatically terminated.
The processing time can be defined in the test settings.
