Inspera Assessment offers several options to create tests. A test can be created manually, either from scratch or through the use of templates, it can be imported from a connected external system, or it can be created through our APIs.
This article will guide you through a manual setup of a test. Creating tests are available for users with the role Planner.
1. Sign in to Inspera Assessment, and from the top menu choose Deliver -> Tests.
2. Then choose Create new test (orange button) at the top right. From the dropdown, choose Inspera Assessment.
Part 1 - Setup
The first part of the setup is to give the test a name, choose a question set and set the start and end time of the test:
Test name: Give the test a name.
Select question set: Click on the file picker at the right of the field, and you will get a list of the question sets you have access to. Keep in mind that as a planner, you don't automatically have access to question sets, so the author must share it with you before you can add it to the test.
The second option is to create a question set on the go. You must have the Author role to do this.
Test opens: This is the start time of the test. The students will not be able to open the test and see the questions before this time.
Standard end time: This is when the test closes. When this time is reached, the students who are still in progress will be automatically redirected to the submit page where they can now submit their answers. Once the time has passed, the students will no longer have access to the questions.
Duration: The field "Duration" is used to limit the time the student can use for completing the exam. E.g. if the exam starts at 09:00 and ends at 13:00 and duration is set to 2 hrs. the student can start at any time between 09:00 and 13:00, but have only two hours to complete the exam.
Note that the Standard closing time will apply also in this case, and the test will close at this time, even if the student have not yet used two hours.
Test information: This is an optional field. The information added here will only be visible to the candidates on their Dashboard. Information that the students should have access to during the test should not be added here.
Part 2 - Candidates
The second part is adding candidates to the test.
We can offer different ways of adding candidates to a test.
If you are adding candidates manually, see this article for candidate types and how to add them:
Part 3 - Options
We offer a multitude of settings on the test, and the details can be found in the linked articles. The options you choose depends on the type of test, and how you plan and structure your tests from beginning to end.

Part 4 - Add contributors to the test
This is where you decide who will contribute, and what roles they have in context of the test.
