Powerful Testing Features

Once your authors have created the questions and tests, they can add a variety of testing features and options to give you an edge over other test publishers.

Add marking & test instruction: For every test that you create, you can add marking i.e. marks for every correct and incorrect answer. Also add detailed instruction for test takers in terms of do's & don'ts. You can edit these at any point of time i.e. even after the tests have been published.

Time duration, Passing score and Proficiency levels: It let's you add and control powerful elements that will help you to view meaningful and accurate reports. You can add the time duration of the test, add passing score and five (proficiency levels). These elements will help you to sort, compare, rank and select candidates at first level before you see a detailed report of shortlisted candidates to gain deeper insight.

Mandatory answer & Skip question management (Patent filed): With the Mandatory Answers feature on, the candidate cannot move to the next question until he/she has answered the previous question. When Mandatory Answers feature is switched off, Skipped Question Management feature (patent filed) gets activated. This is of great help to the candidates as it allows them to skip a particular question and move on to the next question. This becomes all the more important when wrong answers carry negative marks. Candidates can view questions that they have skipped and choose to answer any of these if they want to!
