How to Give Online Exams and Quizzes

Sat 3rd Aug 2019< Back to Blogs and Tutorials

You have just finished creating your first Test and adding all of the content you wish to include - all questions, maybe a Test introduction, some images, perhaps audio or video, documents (all things that you can do with ClassMarker)- everything you need to make your Test a success.

Now, comes the next part - how are you going to deliver online exams to your users? Do you want to have your users log in to an account each time they take their exam or would you prefer they simply have a Test link that they click on with no registration required? Perhaps you are creating a questionnaire and want to simply add a Link to a page on a blog or social media site? Do you want to brand your Tests or even embed them, right into your own web page where they can take their Test right there!

How to give access to online exams within ClassMarker:

Groups and Links
You have two option for giving Tests in ClassMarker:
  1. Registered User Groups: Users taking Tests will be considered registered users. They will access their Tests via our website www.classmarker.com. You can register users yourself from within your ClassMarker administrator account or you can provide them with registration codes so they can register themselves. Users would enter their login details that you have provided to them or these can be emailed automatically. These details will include a username and password in order to access their account/Tests. When users log in, they will see all Tests made available to them in Groups they are part of.
  2. Direct Links / Embed Code: Users who takes Tests on Links are considered to be non-registered users. Your users can access the Test via the Direct link that you have sent to them, by clicking on a link posted within a website, or via a web page where you have embedded the Test. Tests assigned via this method do not have a defined set of users, ie, users are not pre-registered. There are public and private options available so that you can restrict who will take your Test.
