Create Content Rich Online Tests

Sat 10th Dec 2016< Back to Blogs and Tutorials

A huge part of the Test creation process is, of course, adding your questions and answers, however, adding content to your Tests can create a whole new experience for your Test-takers. Using visual aids such as images and video can help a user get a better understanding of what they are learning. Including documents into a Test is a great addition in order to provide your users with the required training and educational documents. The adding of audio files are an excellent way, for example, to test listening skills.
