About test forms

Test forms are the digital equivalent of examination papers that are delivered to candidates. Test forms can contain items, sections, timers, grade boundaries, and dynamic content rules. A single test can have many associated test forms and these test forms can contain different questions or content rules.

You can create test forms that contain fixed or dynamic content, or a combination of both. Fixed test forms deliver one fixed set of questions to all candidates. Dynamic test forms randomly generate questions from a pool of items. You can include fixed sections and dynamic sections in one test form. For more information, see About test form content.
