Manage Exams: Exam Editor Overview

The Exam Editor is used to create and modify Exams that are then delivered to the Student via the Event, Course, or Long Event screens.

The Exam is made up of questions. Each question in the Exam has two components:

  1. The question itself, which consists of the question, responses, and explanations
  2. The sequence, weighted value, and bonus status. These values belong to the Event, Course, or Long Event screen to which the Exam is connected. If the same Exam is attached to a different Event, Course, or Long Event, these values can be different in the content of the new connection.

There are several modes of the Exam presentation:

  • Standard - Where the Exam is presented in a traditional display of questions
  • Block Standard - Where questions are grouped together by blocks but are displayed in the Standard Exam Mode
  • Block View - Where questions are grouped together and displayed together by block
  • Scratch-off basic - Where Exam questions are displayed as a series of response options with no text
  • Scratch-off standard - Where the Exam is displayed in a more traditional mode, but the responses are still selected via the scratch-off interface
  • Super Immediate Feedback (SIF) - Where explanations are displayed as the Exam is taken.
