Here you get an overview of how to further configure a test in a course, how to make manual evaluations and how to save the results.

Test Configuration at Course Level

Go to the course editor of the desired course and select the tab "Options". At course level, the settings from the Test learning resource configuration (see "Test settings" and "Configure tests") are adopted by default. In the Options tab, therefore, "Use configuration of the learning resource" is selected.

If the configuration needs to be adapted, "Adjust configuration" needs to be selected. These adaptions do not have any impact on the configuration of the learning resource itself. In the tab Test configuration some additional configuration can be made.

Tab Test configuration

Under "Test configuration" in the "Report" area you can define the test period, the type of correction and whether and how results and points are displayed for the learners. The test can be started in the specified test period. As soon as the "to" time is reached, the test is automatically terminated.

Set assessment periodThe test can be started during the test period. As soon as the "to" time is reached, the test is automatically terminated. This is also the case if the defined test time has not yet been used up.

The correction can be made automatically or manually. As soon as there is an essay, it must be manual. For the auto correction the result is visible right away and all questions are revised automatically. For the manual correction the visibility of the result is limited and the the coach needs to add manual correction, as for some question types no auto correction is possible. These include essay, file upload and drawing. A manual correction is also possible, if the just named question types are not included in the test. Like this it becomes possible to limit the visibility, even though the test consists only of multiple choice questions.

Show score on test homepage

If this option is selected, the score will be shown to the user on the test homepage.

Show results on test homepage

Here it can be defined, if the result should be shown on the test homepage. If the checkbox Depending on date is not selected, the results are available directly after finishing the test. If only the from date is inserted, the result is shown from this time on. If both dates are inserted, the result is available during this time period.

In wich level of detail the results are shown, can be defined under "Overview results". The selection can be done once and is the same for "Show results on test homepage" and "Show results after test has been submitted".

Show results after test has been submitted

If adaptations are necessary, in the tab Options "Adjust configuration" need to be selected first.

Changes to tests and self-tests

As soon as a self-test is included in a course, only very limited changes can be made under "Edit content".

Why is that? Assuming you could add questions to an integrated test or mark other answers as correct, not all test subjects would meet the same requirements. On the other hand, results may already have been saved that cannot be unambiguously assigned to a version of the test file after the change. Therefore the editing of already integrated tests and self-tests is strongly restricted.

For example, if you want to add a new question to a test or if an answer was incorrectly marked as correct, copy the learning resource Test in the Author Area and save the test again. Edit and correct the test and then include the test in the course. To do this, switch to the course editor and exchange the file in the course element of the desired test. If results have already been received, they will be archived in your personal folder (private) and you can decide whether OpenOLAT should inform the course participants who have already taken the test about the change.

View and grade tests

Access to tests completed by course participants is available in the "Assessment tool". The assessment tool can be found in the "Administration" of the course. All tests and other assessable course elements of a course are displayed under "User" and can be called up, viewed, changed and commented on in relation to a person.

Test results and archiving

Select the link "Data archiving" from the "Administration" in the course view. Go to "Tests" or "Course results" on the left and save the displayed file. In contrast to the test results, the results of self-tests, surveys and questionnaires are saved anonymously.

After archiving, you will find all information about who answered which questions, which answers were given and how many points were achieved during the self-test.

Via "Administration" ->"Test Statistics" you can also quickly access the graphical evaluation of your test data.
