Key assessment technologies for:

Multiple Choice Tests (MCQs) – My Studies tests as remote exams

  • Test settings we recommend:
    • ‘Force Completion’ is ON: If enabled, once students have started the test they cannot leave the test until complete. If a student attempts to leave the test midway through, My Studies will automatically submit their test attempt.
    • ‘Auto Submit’ is OFF: If the timer is enabled, My Studies will automatically submit the students test when the timer expires which does not allow for any interruptions the student might experience – you will be able to tell what time the student did submit.
