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.
Go to Test Creation > Test Forms to view the Test Forms screen.
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, read Adding items to a fixed section and Adding rules to a dynamic section.
