Can I ask additional questions before the start of a test?

Yes. Additional questions allow you to gather data from your users that are not part of that test's content. This data can provide you with valuable insight about your users' characteristics. You can make these questions mandatory or optional. They can include:

  • Demographic information such as age, gender, employment status, education level, etc.,
  • For on-going job training, questions can be related to which department people belong to or which courses they have completed or wish to take, or even employee feedback.
  • For pre-employment testing, you can use these questions for asking how a candidate found out about the job opportunity, qualifying experience, job being sought after, etc.,
  • For exams given to students, use these for questions such as asking what students hope to get from their participation in the exam or quiz, perhaps feedback for any concerns/difficulties they are currently having and so on.
