Create a supportive learning environment by adding custom feedback messages to help test users understand how they did in the exam.

Time limit

Use time limits to create tests that test for a combination of knowledge and agile accuracy.

The timer will stay visible at the top of the test page throughout the test to help your test takers.

Randomize questions

Save time by creating new exams using a random order of questions you created in previous exams automatically stored inside your Questions Bank.

Also, create a unique test for every test taker without extra work. Set your exam to randomize the order in which the questions are displayed each time the exam is accessed.

Supported languages

ClassMarker's mission is to make education accessible to everyone. One way we do this is to allow our clients to be inclusive and sensitive to a global marketplace by offering tests in 25 languages.

Choose from Arabic, Bulgarian, Chinese, Danish, Dutch, English, Finish, French, German, Greek, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Norwegian, Polish, Portuguese, Romanian, Russian, Slovenian, Spanish, Swedish, and Turkish.

Exam restrictions

Limit and customize access to your tests to suit your needs.

  • Limit the number of attempts allowed over a 24-hour period to stop cheating.
  • Set a common password for all exam takers so only those who know it can access your exam.
  • Allow each exam taker to create their own password and account - ideal if you plan on regularly testing the same exam takers and want to chart their educational progress.
  • Create a unique access code that only each test taker should know to enter the test, such as email, employee ID, etc. This limits password sharing.

Branded theme

Your tests should reflect your brand seamlessly from your websites to CRMs, LMS, and other online platforms.

ClassMarker allows you to customize your tests with your logos, brand colors, and choice of text color, button colors, and background.

Monetize tests

Optionally, you can charge a fee for test access.

ClassMarker syncs with PayPal, one of the world's most well-known and trusted online payment systems, to accept test access payments. Your test users can pay using their credit card or funds from their PayPal account (if they are a PayPal user).

You will need a PayPal Premier or Business account to use this feature.

  • Display fixed questions,
  • Randomize the order of fixed questions,
