Course Element: Test

The course element "Test" is used to control achievements within a course. Course results will be archived in a personalized way. A test has to be imported or created first in the so-called IMS QTI format (version 1.2). If you have not generated a test before please follow the instructions in the chapter "Creating Tests and Questionnaires".

By means of the course element "Test" you include that test in your course. In this course element, data regarding course participants will be stored (number of attempts, scores, detailed assessments). If you haven't already selected a test you will see the text No file chosen. Click on "Select, create or import file" in the tab "Test configuration" to assign this course element to a test or create a new one.

If you have already selected a test the title of this learning resource will appear next to the Selected file. By clicking on it you will start the preview of your test. By means of Replace file you can replace your learning resource. Any user results already existing will be saved once more.

Note
Any test linked to a course can only be edited in your test-editor as long as there are no users launching and taking it. After that only typing errors can be corrected.

 

If you want to replace a test already embedded just click on "Replace file" in the tab "Test configuration" and select a new test. In case there are already test results of course participants you can download them next.

 

 

 
Warning
Attention: In case participants are taking a test at that moment all their results will be lost since that test is not complete. All results achieved between replacing and publishing a test will be lost as well.

Information

The Information (HTML page) text will be displayed as "Disclaimer" on the element page above the start button.

Selected page: In order to add a file just click on Select page before selecting a file. If you have already chosen one you will be able to select another one by means of Replace page or to edit that file within the OLAT editor by means of Open page in editor .

As soon as you have selected a file the tab will extend by the field Security settings. .: If you enable the Allow links in the entire storage folder option, you can set links within this HTML page that refer to any files within the storage folder, e.g. <a href = "../media/course.css">.

Warning
This setting enables experienced participants to gain insight into the complete storage folder of the course.

Do not check this box if you plan to e.g. create different folders for guests and registered course participants in order to prevent some guest to see through files that are off the record.
By means of this setting you can only set links on files from the same folder (e.g. /page1.html) within this HTML page (e.g. /index.html) or on files in sub-folders that are hierarchically on the same level as the original file (e.g. /media/course.css). You will not be able to set any links that are not on the same hierarchical level (e.g. .../folder/pic1.jpg).

Layout parameters

A test will always be started along with a homepage in your course. You can edit the content of this page in the section "Information (HTML page)".

The presentation of results, etc. can be configured in the tab "Test configuration" as well. For more information please go to "Display Options and Configuration", section "On the course level"."

Information on how to see test results can be found in "Archiving Results of Tests and Questionnaires".
