Once your Assessment has been created, you need to further edit the settings that fit your needs, such as grade, feedback, etc.
Let's analyze each setting:
Grade & Attempts
a. Passing grade in %: You are able to set the passing grade of the assessment.
b. Allow Multiple Attempts: You can allow users to have unlimited or an exact number of attempts in any case, or when they fail, or generally you can prohibit resubmissions.
c. Show grade: You have the option to make the score visible immediately after the submission or in case you have added assignment questions, you can make the score visible after all the assignment questions are graded.
a. No timer: By enabling this setting, users are allowed to stay on the assessment for as long as they want. They will need to manually submit the assessment in order for the admins/instructors to see their responses.
b. Timer for the whole assessment: Users will get a specific amount of time to complete the assessment. The users' answers will be automatically submitted once the time passes.
c. Timer for each question: This setting can only be used when a specific navigational template ( the Card-based/Submit as you go) is enabled.
d. Enable alarms: You can allow users to create custom alarms on their own, as reminders. In order for the users to be able to set an alarm, there needs to be more than 1 minute available as reminders are set per minute.
The Randomize settings pertain to the content delivery of the assessment.
a. Select the number of questions to show: Specify how many questions per section you would like to deliver.
b. Randomize question order: Randomize the order of the questions when delivered to the user.
You can also offer various options to your users, like allowing searching, question bookmarking, setting an alarm, etc.
Note: Only users can set alarms (the admin cannot pre-set the alarms for the users), bookmark questions, and search among question descriptions and options.
In Feedback settings, you can configure how the user receives feedback on their answers. For delivery, you have two options: on-screen feedback and downloading a PDF report. Additionally, you are able to set which questions will be included in the feedback offered, and which information should be displayed.
In order to add feedback to your questions, you need to:
1. click on Edit questions,
2. enable the setting Provide feedback.
3. You can also enable the Advance feedback in which you are able to add different feedback for each option.
The Assignments is a setting related to the Assignment types of questions (the file and the text assignment). Basically, this setting is associated with the correctness of those types of questions when you have enabled the Feedback setting.
Let's say that you have created an assessment with two assignment templates within it and also you have enabled the feedback option. When you will grade the assignment, and finally, the user has passed one of the two assignment questions (this will be determined by the passing grade), they will receive a tick icon for the correct answer and an X icon for the wrong one.
The incorrect answer in the first assignment questions below indicates that the user has taken a smaller grade than the passing grade and in the second one, the user has taken more than the passing grade or the exact percentage of the passing grade. In any case, the user can check the correctness of their answer only if click on the Show feedback button once the assignment has been graded.
a. Show confirmation popup: This is the message that pops up when a user submits their assessment. You can either keep the default text or further customize the text on a per assessment basis.
b. Auto-Recovery: Select whether the assessment will continue from where it was left off if the user navigates away and then comes back.
c. Tag respondents: You can set tags for users who submit the assessment within the specified time. These tags will be added to the users upon submission.
