When creating an Assessment, you'll need to set up the requirements and ensure assigned Users have all the information that they need before they get started.

1. To open your Assessment Settings, click the Settings button within the Assessment creation page (inside the Course Editor). Alternatively, you can click Continue.

2. The Assessment Settings pop-up will occur, showcasing the following options, which can be toggled on and off at any time:

  • Add post-submission message: The message Users will see after they've submitted their Assessment. This section is mandatory, but doesn't have a word count limit.

  • Add deadline: The date and time, by which the Assessment must be submitted. You can click the field to open the calendar and time options, to set.

  • Set a passmark: This consists of two options.

    • Passing Score - the percentage needed in order to pass the Assessment.

    • User must pass to complete assessment - the checkbox that ensures Users won't be able to complete the Assessment, if the Passing Score isn't reached.

  • Enable Retakes: This section will open, once the User must pass to complete assessment option, is selected. You can set the number of times Users can retake the test. The maximum number of retakes you can submit is 100.

3. Click Save to set your options, and be taken back to the Course Editor.

NEW ✨

You'll notice that some settings have changed for Assessments - here's how to understand what they look like now.

We refer to these as "enforceable" and "non-enforceable"

  • Enforceable - the User MUST meet the pass mark to consider the Assessment complete

  • Non-Enforceable - the person does NOT need to meet the pass mark to consider the Assessment complete
