Introducing Exam Mode

If you want to deliver a traditional summative test, use Exam Mode.

Exam Mode excludes

  • multiple attempts
  • right or wrong notification after each question
  • formative feedback after each question

When assigning please remember:

  • the test will take about half the time you are used to, because of the lack of feedback.
