Navigate to the the General Settings tab of the assessment. From here, you can customize several different parameters.

  • Name: You can change the name of the exam using this field.

  • Passing Grade: Lets you specify the percentage grade that a learner must achieve in order to successfully pass the assessment. Set this to 0 if you do not want the grade to matter, such as during practice tests.

  • Time Limit: The number of minutes that a learner has to complete the assessment. Set this to 0 if you don't want a time limit.

  • Number of Attempts: How many times a learner can attempt the assessment.

  • Randomized Assessment: Pick random questions out of a pool of possible questions. For more information, please see this article.

  • Hours Between Attempts: The number of hours that must elapse before a user can attempt the assessment again. Set this to 0 to allow immediate follow-up attempts.

  • Prevent Access to Courses During Assessment Attempts: This will lock the user out of every course until they have completed the assessment.

  • Post-Assessment Feedback: Please refer to this article.

  • Assessment Type: Use this field to choose what category your exam belongs to, or create a new category if you don't have it already.

  • Description: The description of the assessment that all of your learners will be able to see before they attempt the assessment.

When adding/editing questions, you can click Additional Options that will provide you with more parameters that you can include.

  • Point Value: This is the question weight. For example, if you have a total of three questions, two with a weight of 1 and one with a weight of 2, the 2-point question is worth as much as the other two combined. A user who gets both 1-point questions correctly but answers the 2-point question incorrectly will receive a grade of 50%.

  • Multiple Choice Option: Unique to multiple choice questions, this lets you specify whether only one of the correct answers must be chosen for marks, or whether every correct answer that you chose needs to be selected.

  • Question Image: You can use this to attach an image to your question.

  • Resolution: Change the size of your image with this menu. The value you choose will determine the width of the image in pixels, with the height scaling appropriately.

  • Attach Existing Material: You can attach material to your question.

  • Once that's done, you can opt to include feedback using the Feedback tab.
