When create test is selected the tests that are created in a course they will appear in every class. Instructor can name a test and select what module they wish the test to be in.
There can be as many tests in a module as the instructor wishes, but for for the system to create certificates of completion for the course there needs to be AT LEAST one test.
If a certificate of completion is not necessary then tests can be set as optional or required. They can be multiple choice (which the system corrects) or essay style (which the instructor has to read and grade)
With multiple choice tests there is an option where the instructor can allow students to retake a test if they fail an attempt. There is also an option for the instructor to receive a notification when a student has taken a test.

The next screen allows you to add Questions to your multiple choice tests (see image below) Select add question
Fill in the popup for your first question and possible answers. The instructor can pick what order the questions are in and which answer is correct, then select Add.
Once you have entered your first question you will get a screen like the one below. It shows the test we just created in Module 1. The test is named First Test (see red arrow) and it has one question.
To add a second questions simply select the red first test
When you select the first test the screen below is displayed. That screen shows the question you just created for the test and the option to add another question. As we explained earlier, there is no limit to the number of multiple choice questions.
Creating an essay test is easier and less time consuming to create but takes more time for the instructor because they have to read and grade the essay's manually.
The concept of creating this is simple figure out. When a test is set up the instructor just selects essay rather than multiple choice and then fill in the blanks.
Essay tests can have a number of questions that students need to answer. There is no limit in how many essay questions are asked.
