Use the various configuration options in the tab " Options " to adapt the test according to your needs.

Reset variables

The test tasks can be changed for each test call by the use of variables. By default, the same variable values are used for each attempt to solve a task. If you select the option " New variable values per attempt ", the variables will be recalculated. In this way, it is possible to display similar tasks to multiple participants, who will need to calculate a new solution for each of their attempts (cf. calculation task (cloze)).

Time limit

The author can define a processing time for the entire test or individual test sections. The remaining processing time will be displayed to the participant during the testing process accurately to the second.

After the expiration of this time limit, a message will be displayed to the participant indicating that the sections and tasks can no longer be processed. If the processing time for the whole test has expired, the test will be automatically terminated.

Navigation

The author can choose between a linear and a non-linear navigation. A non-linear navigation allows the participants to navigate between tasks. In this way, solutions entered for previous tasks can still be changed later on.

In the case of a linear navigation, participants have to navigate from question to question via the forward and back button. As concerns the non-linear navigation, it is further possible to navigate via the displayed navigation tree.

Presentation

The author can decide about the form in which the tasks will be presented to the participants. Currently, it is only possible to show either one or all questions on one page (section-based).

For the presentation on mobile devices, we recommend showing only one question at once.

Use comments in a test

To enable the comment function for a test, proceed as follows:

  1. In the test settings, switch to the tab " Options ".
  2. In the section " Options ", activate the selection box " Allow on question level " under comment. Now, participants can leave a comment for each task in the test.

Example: Hide test title

When performing a test, the test title is displayed in the upper left pane. You can hide the test title by means of an own style sheet file (CSS).

Use the following CSS statement:

.nav-header h1 {display: none !important;}

Save the statement in a CSS file (.css). Add the CSS file to the test content by uploading it as a style sheet file to the section " L ayout setting " in the tab " Options ".
