How to edit published test settings in generated tests

This article will explain different ways to edit published test settings, add new questions, delete existing ones, change the passing mark for the test, and preview all the changes.

Once you import/create a test, we recommend using the preview option before publishing the test to simulate test-taking and ensure test settings are configured as desired.

Previewing draft version of the test

Once you finish the wizard, at any moment, you can simulate the test-taking process and review the test you made before publishing it.

Editing the draft version of the test #

If you want to change the test settings or add questions for the draft test, open the Settings tab to change the configuration of the test.

On the left side menu, you will be able to change the test configuration.

After the changes are made, and you are finished with the Test Creation Wizard,  you can create a new testing session, add candidates and publish the test.

Editing configuration of the sections 

If the test contains sections, once you create a draft version of the test, you will be able to change the configuration for each section.

To edit the section configuration, follow the next steps:

Once you open the desired test:

  1. Select the Test sections tab.
  2. Click the Details icon in the Actions column.

Once you open the Setting tab you can edit the configuration regarding the section.

Editing of published test settings #

In case you have already published the test, but want to make changes, you can do so as follows:

Questions editing #

Once you open the test that you want to edit, you should:

  1. Click the Test sections tab. In case the test is without sections, click the Questions tab.
  2. Click the Details icon in the Actions column.

You can edit or delete questions of the published test by doing the following:

  1. Click the Questions tab.
  2. Click the Actions button next to the desired question and chose the desired action.

    To add new questions, click either the New question button to manually create a question or the Import questions button to add questions from an existing question pool.

    Note: Editing questions will not create a copy of the whole test. Instead, a copy of the question will be created, allowing you to save the score and results of the candidates who already completed the test. The updated questions will be presented to candidates who attempt the test after it has been edited.

    Grading editing #

    You can fully edit the grading configuration, and change the passing mark for the entire test, section, and group of sections. Changing the grading configuration will affect only the users whose results are not verified.

    To see how to verify results for a candidate, please take a look at the “Verifying candidates’ results” chapter.

    1. Click the Grading configuration tab.
    2. Click the Edit grading button. A confirmation dialogue will appear informing you that the change of grading configuration will only affect unverified reports.
    1. Click the Yes button to proceed with the editing of the grading configuration.
    2. Click the No button to cancel.

    Once you access the editing mode, you can:

    1. Change the passing mark for the entire test.
    2. Require a positive proctoring report.
    3. Add or change the grading scale for the test.
    4. Click the Edit icon to change the passing mark for the section.
    5. Click the Create new section group button to create and set the new section group’s passing mark and 
    6. Click on the Edit icon to change the section group’s passing mark.
    7. Click on the Edit icon to change the passing mark for the question pool.
    8. Click the Create question property report button.


    Verifying candidates’ results #

    You can verify candidates’ results by doing the following:

    1. Click the Candidates tab.
    2. Select the candidates whose results you want to verify.
    3. Click the Actions button and from the dropdown menu select Verify selected attempts.

    Example of how the editing of grading affects verified and unverified candidates #

    In this example, two candidates completed the test—one with 80% and the other with a 90% score. Both candidates passed the test. Once we verified one candidate’s results, no changes on the grading part will affect it.

    We will change the passing mark for the whole test to 90% and not make the passing mark inclusive.

    As you can see, the passing mark change affected only the candidate whose result is not verified.
