- Advanced Settings - Steps before publishing an Assessment Template

After questions have been added and you are ready to publish your assessment template, you need to complete a few steps, which can’t be edited once it’s published:

  • Declare a pass score
  • Declare how many questions should be included in an assigned assessment
  • Adjust the advanced settings

Pass Score

The pass score can be presented in points (e.g. 7 / 10 points) or as a percentage (e.g. 70%).

To set the pass score:
1. Click the edit (pencil) icon under Pass Score
2. Select points or percent from the dropdown menu
3. Type in a number according to your choice above
4. Click Save

Number of Questions

You can have a larger number of questions in the template than are required for each assessment. This allows you to produce varied assessments from the same template. The questions can be randomly selected from the pool available. When you create a question you declare if it should be mandatory. Mandatory questions are always included up to the number of questions declared for the assessment.

To set the number of questions (if you don’t want to Ask all Questions):
1. Click the edit (pencil) icon under Number of Questions
2. Type the number of questions to include in every assessment (Leave empty to Ask all Questions)
3. Click Save

Randomise Questions

If a number is set above, questions will automatically be randomised.
If not, you can still randomise them:
1. Click the edit (pencil) icon under Randomise Questions
2. Click the checkbox
3. Click Save

Advanced Settings

There are 6 advanced settings:

Most advanced settings can’t be changed once the assessment template is published. The only advanced setting that can be edited after publishing is Examiner Settings.
