TESTPOOL in operation


Start page
The online test opens in a separate browser window. The start page displays the most important information about the e-test: number of tasks, required maximum and minimum score, number of attempts and the time available.


Question types
On a hotspot question page the author marks different areas of a picture. Each of these areas corresponds to an answer in a Multiple Choice or Multiple Response question. Graphically challenging questions are inserted on this type of question page.
With Drag & Drop you can match text and pictures by dragging them. A question may contain text elements only or a combination of text and picture elements.


Question overview & Evaluation Page
Here, all questions of the e-test are listed. Already answered, marked or not answered questions are marked with a different colour and can be selected directly from the list.
After answering all test questions or after the expiry of the time limit, the test is evaluated and a detailed results page is displayed. The level of detail of the results page is determined by the Test Author. It either displays all or only the incorrectly answered questions. In addition, in the test properties it is determined whether or not the solution is displayed. The test player calculates the score based on question type, response and weighting.


After logging in, the cockpit is displayed. It shows the user new messages and the number of existing questions and tests. A pie chart illustrates the figures displayed in the table. When creating a new question, the question author has 8 different question types at his disposal. The data language is determined when the question is opened. Afterwards, the question can be designed individually. Various criteria such as learning objective, target group, processing time, taxonomy and weighting of the question are defined.


Create tests
When creating a test, Test Authors enter the metadata and define the test properties. This includes setting the language, time limit, the minimum number of points required to pass the test and the number of questions to be displayed in the test. Finally, the Test Authors add the required number of questions to the test.
For approved questions and tests, translation jobs can be triggered into predefined target languages. These translations can be edited by a person with the translator role. The translations are then checked again by the reviewer.


Export tests
TESTPOOL supports the international standards AICC and SCORM. E-tests created with TESTPOOL can be integrated in a wide range of learning management systems.
