Step 3

Create New Test


Clicking CREATE NEW TEST on the Manage Test Screen screen above brings up the Create New Test screen that we see in the image below. 

It is on this screen that the instructor names their test. For this tutorial, we named our's  "Sample Multiple Choice Test". The default for the TEST TYPE field is Multiple Choice, so that does not have to be changed.

When the instructor then clicks the red ADD TEST button at the bottom of the screen they're moved to the screen that allows instructors to create the multiple choice questions and answers for the test.
