In a test or quiz students do no direct feedback on answers is given to students. Therefore always one answer attempt is used to calculate the score. Unlike with lessons, the answer can be calculated to be partially correct. This may happen with multiple response questions and questions where a text has to be dragged to a correct location. Let’s suppose that the weight of the first question in a test makes up 10% of the total weight of the test and it has 4 responses. If the student has correctly assessed 2 of the 4 statements then the question is calculated as 50% correct. The diagram will look like this:

For tests the administrator decides how these are taken and if multiple attempts are possible:

  • 1 session, answers can be changed.
    With this setting, the student submits all answers when he/she has finished. During the session the student can browse through the test and change the answers he/she has previously submitted.

  • 1 session, answers cannot be changed.
    With this setting the student submits every answer separately. During the session the student can browse through the test but cannot change any answer.

  • Multiple sessions, answers cannot be changed.
    Same setting as above, except that this time multiple sessions are allowed.
