You can add Introduction and Finish Pages to provide information to candidates at the start and end of a test.

Introduction and Finish Pages appear in separate sections that can be independently timed. You can add both Introduction and Finish Pages in the same way.

TIP: You can also add sample items to the introduction section so candidates can practise interacting with questions before they start the test.

This article explains how to add Introduction Pages and sample items to a test form’s introduction section and Finish Pages to a test form’s finish section.
