How to preview a test

For versions:GetCertified 8.2GetCertified 9.0GetCertified 9.1GetCertified 9.2

There are two ways you can do a preview of the test:

  1. Using the preview option
  2. By creating a testing session and adding yourself as a candidate


Using the preview option

Navigate to the “Tests” in the main menu, and select the “Manage tests” option.

On the “Manage tests” page, you will see the list of all tests. Use the search box to find the test you want to preview, and click on its name to open it.

Click on the “Settings” icon in the upper right corner, and choose the “Preview” option.

The preview option is available both for the draft and published tests. It allows you to take the test in order to check it from the candidates’ perspective and make sure the test is understandable.

Creating a testing session and adding yourself as a candidate to it

This option helps you to preview the test-taking process on the whole (e.g., what the report looks like). Once you have completed the preview, there is an option to delete the existing session, create a new one, and assign the candidates to the new session. If you need further help, please check the article on our website – how to create a simple test. Please, keep in mind that you will have to add yourself as the candidate to the testing session, once you get to the part of the article that explains the testing session.

Note: If there is any need to change anything in the already published test, it’s needed to create a copy of that test and then make the desired changes.

To create the copy of any test you previewed previously follow these steps:

  1. Navigate to the test you previously created on Tests/Manage tests submenu


2. Create a copy of the test to edit the existing test easily, create the new session, and assign candidates to the session. Take a look at the picture below to know how to create the test copy.

3. After you successfully create a copy of a test, you can create a testing session, and assign candidates to the testing session.


To create the new testing session of the copied test, follow these steps:

  • Click the ”New testing session” button (opens the pop-up window)
  • Enter the testing session name
  • Select location from the drop-down list
  • Select the time zone from the drop-down list
  • Select the availability of the testing session – enter the Start date and the End date
  • Select the group to which you will assign the testing session
  • Select the training to which you will assign the testing session
  • Click the ”Save” button to create the new session
  • Click the ”Cancel” button to discard creating the new session
