Exam management allows creation of events to deliver tests and/or surveys. To setup an exam, you need to first create the test (or survey) and publish it. An exam can then be created at the site level, inside a group or for a course session.
Site Level Exam
Use the Create Exam menu as shown below.
Specify the exam name, date, duration
Select an existing test
A dialog box will open from which you can select a test for the exam, choose any test and click on Submit.
Once all the details are filled in, click on Save to create the exam. Once the exam is created, you will get additional link on the page to view full details of the exam, and Add Candidate (for Group and Site level exams).
Exam at Group Level
Navigate to the group for which you would want to create an exam. Go to the Events tab and start creating the exam using the Create Exam button.
In case the Events tab is not visible then go to the Overview tab, edit the group using Edit link, go to the Options tab and enable the Event in the Features section.
Rest of the process is same as creating exam for site level.
Exam For a Course Session
Go to the course session details page and use the Create Exam option in Events menu to start creating the exam.
In case the Create Exam option is not available, go to Settings
And enable Exam feature
Once you click on the Create Exam, a dialog will open similar to Site level exam, you get an additional option in this case to specify whether this exam is End of Course Exam. An end of course exam is used in special cases, where you want to award the course completion status to students, based on their result in end of course exam. There can be one or more end of course exams in a course session, passing any of those will award the course to student.
Create Exam from an Existing Test
An alternate way to create exam is available from Test Listing page and Test Editor.
Creating exam from Test Listing
You can click on the calendar icon to schedule a published test.
Creating Exam from Test Editor
You can also schedule a test from inside test editor, after it is published.
In both cases, you will get an option to select a group (optional) and course session (after you select a group) to create exam for specific group or course session.
Once you select a group, all course sessions from the group will be available in course session drop down.
