Setting up test settings

You can access the “Create Test Wizard” from the homepage:

The second step in “Create Test Wizard” is the settings. In this step, you should choose options for the test.
In this example, we will select:

  • Require answering all question
  • Enable “I don’t know” answer to avoid negative points
  • Disable going backward in test
  • Enable answer feedback
  • Show question metadata to the candidate
  • Require updating profile information
  • Allow test continuation
  • Allow test retaking (number of attempts is 3)

All the chosen settings will be saved in the newly created template on the last step of the test wizard and
can be used to set up the settings for the new test automatically.
