Grading configurator setup

The “Grading configuration” step allows you to set the grading options for the test. Here you can:

  1. Set “Passing mark” – Passing mark is expressed in percentages if there is more than one testing version.

  3. “Grading scale” – From the drop-down menu, you can select one of the previously created grading scales. 
  4. See the list of all question pools used in the test. If there are more test versions, all used question pools will be listed in the table.
