Editing test settings
Last updated on • Available in French
After creating a test and customizing test content, you can edit test specifics that are not concerned with setting up test questions and random blocks.
Set up email notifications
Set up email notifications to receive a notification when a candidate finishes the test.
Navigate to your account and click on Tests on the left navigation menu.
Then, click the gear wheel icon ⚙️ in the top right of the Timeline window.
A pop up containing Timeline settings appears.
Tick the option Notified by email when a candidate has finished the assessment, then click Save.
Now, when a candidate completes an assessment, you will receive a notification email.
Edit language settings
If you create a test in one language (English, French, or Spanish), it is possible to change the language later on.
Go to the test, click Test settings, and then select the relevant language.
The test will be given in the language you selected.
Edit test expiration date
By default, a candidate has 30 days to take the test after receiving the email invitation.
You can change this time window in Test settings by adjusting the Number of days after which invitations expire.
Edit question timer
There are two ways to manage a test’s duration.
1. Timer per question
The Screen default time settings depend on the kind of question; i.e. a few seconds for multiple choice and text questions, and several minutes for programming questions.
You can edit the time for each question by customizing your test.
Having a timer per question means that if your candidate leaves the test before finishing, they have 48 hours to return to it. When they resume the test, it starts on the question following the one they left on. This helps to prevent cheating.
2. Global timer
This timer sets a fixed duration for your candidates to take the test.
Candidates can manage their own time, switch from one question to another, and change their previous answers.
We only recommend this setting for candidates who have to pass practical questions such as programming exercises. If the candidate leaves the test, they will not be able to return and finish as the timer’s countdown doesn’t pause.
You can edit the global timer in Test settings.
Scroll down to see the timer settings and select GLOBAL TIMER, inputing a desired total duration for the test.
