Test Access

You can choose to allow anyone access to your Tests, or use multiple access restriction options to keep your exams and questions secure and private.

Availability

When can Tests be taken!

Availability determines if and when, a user will be able to access the Test. Select to have the Test as 'available', 'unavailable' and set a start date/time and end date/time. These settings can be turned on/off as required.

Options:

  1. Available:
    • Test will always be available
  2. Unavailable:
    • Test will not be available. Users would receive a message that the Test is not available and they would have no access
  3. Date & Time:
    • Select a Start date/time and an End date/time. Users will only be able to access the Test between the selected times
    • If a timer is set and users enter the Test within the allocated times, they will have the full time limit available
    • The Dates/Times will reflect your time zone. You can change this if needed, on your My Accounts page > My Details

Benefits:

  1. Setting dates/times will allow you to easily track who is taking their Tests when required
  2. Users take their Tests promptly, having them stick to their course time table
  3. Great for 'new hire' testing - only make the Tests available within the allocated job opening time and then close it until needed again
