A test can be created by authoring new questions, using the various built-in question types, reusing existing questions from tests and pools, uploading questions, or importing pools of questions. To create a new Test, access the Tests page by clicking the Tests, Surveys, and Pools link from the Course Tools section of the Control Panel, then selecting Tests on the following page. Tests can be created in the following two ways:
Note: If students are in the process of taking a test or have already taken a test, then questions cannot be changed. Changing the number of points for a question or the correct answer will regrade the previous attempts.
On the Course Content page, select the plus sign wherever you want to add a test. You can also expand or create a folder or learning module and add a test. In the menu, select Create to open the Create Item panel and select Test. The New Test page opens.
When you create a test, a gradebook item is created automatically. A test's score consists of the sum total of all the questions' points.
After you post test grades, students can view their scores on their grades pages or in the activity stream. They can also access a test, associated rubrics, their submissions, your feedback, and their grades from the test link on the Course Content page.
