The miscellaneous settings for a test comprise the following:
Dynamic Test: Dynamic test is a test where you create a pool of questions and instruct our platform to randomly pick a specified number of questions from this pool and bundle it together as a test. This ensures that each candidate gets a different test; thereby decreasing the possibility of copying and cheating on the test. To create such a test, you must ensure that pool of questions in one particular section must comprise of questions of same difficulty level and score.
Refer the Dynamic tests topic to understand more about dynamic tests.
Shuffle Questions: When enabled, this setting allows you to randomly shuffle questions in a test for each candidate. By default, this option is disabled.
Question Points: When this option is enabled, candidates can view the score assigned to each question in the test. By default, this option is disabled.
Disclaimer: When this option is enabled, candidates cannot take the test without selecting the check box that appears next to the honor code declaration. By selecting the check box, candidates agree that they won't indulge in cheating and plagiarizing. You can edit the declaration text as required. By default, this option is enabled. However, you can disable this option.
Clone Test: This setting allows you to clone a test with the same questions and settings as the original test. This is useful when you want to create a test with the same settings as the original test. You can choose to add or delete questions to this cloned test. The naming convention for the cloned test is: Name of the original test (Duplicate).
The questions on the test are not cloned. There is only one master or original copy of each question that exists. If you edit the questions in this test, the original question gets updated and so are all the tests that contain the question.
Archive Test: You can archive a test that you are not actively using. This removes the test from your active test list. You cannot send invites to the candidates for archived tests. However, you can restore an archived test whenever required.
Lock Test: You can lock a test to prevent anyone from making changes to its questions and settings. A test can be locked and unlocked by the test owner or owner's team members. You cannot edit test settings for a locked test. You cannot change the order of questions or add new questions to the test. Questions that are part of a locked test cannot be modified. You have to unlock the test to edit any question that is part of a locked test. You cannot delete a locked test, but you can archive it.
Delete Test: You can use this option to permanently delete a test. All associated reports are also deleted. However, the questions in the test are not deleted and can be accessed from the library. You can consider archiving the test instead of deleting it to retain all the reports associated with the test.
