Note. The question editing form contains a warning hint about the need for the administrator to check the answers to this question manually.
Note
. On the question editing form, when the function of attaching a file to the answer is enabled, there is a warning about the need to pass this test with an active Internet connection.

Note: When checking the answers, the administrator will be able to put from 0 points for an open question to the value in the Points for the correct answer field, both with the correct status and with the incorrect status.

If there are several attempts in a test with open questions, then with each new attempt, the progress of the program is "rolled back" when the test goes to the status "under review". The updated progress will appear after checking the test and will depend on the best result.

If there are already answers to open questions in the test, when trying to change the Points for the correct answer field, it is checked that the new value cannot be less than the one already marked in the answers.

The order in which questions are displayed
The check mark Display questions in random order shows that each time you try to pass the test, the questions will be displayed randomly.

If the check mark is not set, the questions in the platform are displayed in the same order in which they were asked by the administrator.

If the check mark is not set and the test is in the "Hidden" status, you can change the order of questions in the list using the drag&drop method. To do this, click and hold the mouse button on the question and drag it to the desired location.

If the test is in the "Active" status, the random display setting is inactive. There is no possibility to change the order of questions in the "Active" status. To edit, move the material to the "Hidden" status."

If the Show questions in random order check box is enabled, in the "Hidden" status, you can set the number of questions from each section that will be displayed in the test. To do this, click on the link "N from M questions" or on the edit section button in the menu •••.


  • Specify the number of questions for the test (by default, the total number of questions in the section is specified). You can change the values by clicking on the arrows, or enter a natural number no more than the total number of questions in the section. If you try to enter a larger number, an error will be displayed.

  • Click Save


  • If you try to configure the display of not all questions in the section that have a different number of points, a warning and a field for changing the number of points will appear in the window. Set this number, but these points will change for all questions in the section. This setting is necessary so that all users have the same total score for the test.
    By default, the field is set to 0 points. Accordingly, if you do not change the number of points to more than zero, an error message will be displayed.
    Note.
    There may be questions with different scores in one section, and they should all be displayed in the test.



    When you add a new question to the sections, it will automatically fall into the displayed ones. For example, the counter "Always show 10 out of 11 questions" will change to "Always show 11 out of 12 questions"when adding a question.

Importing questions

You can add a large number of questions to the test at the same time using the import questions function. For detailed instructions on importing, see:
How to fill out the test import template from training programs correctly?
