Enter the name of the test choose a password and then click on the tab create a test.
Two things are very important here,
- Remember the password (if you are a free user then there is no option to recover it). Better you write it somewhere and keep handy.
- Remember the URL of the test which is generated otherwise you will be unable to retrieve the test.
The dashboard of your test appears on the screen with the name of the test you entered. There are 5 steps in the dashboard to build the test, preview the test, and publish the test, and to view the result of the test.
Bookmark the page and write down the password and preserve it. It is very critical to bookmark the page or to remember the URL and the password otherwise it is very difficult to recover the test in case the password is lost and to view the results.

These settings are for the users who can attempt the test (anyone means anyone with the URL can submit the test, or test seekers with a passcode or from the list which a test creator specifies, or test seekers who enter the email id). We can also limit the time for the test and the number of attempts for the test to make the test more effective.

Here you can add your questions to the test. You can add graded or ungraded questions like multiple-choice questions, true/false questions, match the pairs, and essay type questions. Free users are allowed to use only graded questions whereas paid users have access to all types of questions with features like importing questions from another test, importing from the files, and embedding videos. Free users can add to a limit of 50 questions per test.
The test is available for students only after you publish the test. Before publishing the test you can preview the test and check for any mistakes. Once you have finished the preview then publish the test. You can download it as a Word document or take a print of the test. Once you publish the test you get a URL and this URL can be distributed to the students by means of messages or emails.
Here you get a tab of the current status of the test, using which you can close the test or schedule the test. Anyone with the link can attempt the test as long as it open.
The result is displayed only after the students submit the test. All the details like who has attempted, what is the score, percentage of marks, questions with correct options, and questions with incorrect options are displayed. If you wish you can export it as an Excel sheet or take a print of the result.
