When setting up an Inspera Assessment test, there are several options to choose from to create a test that suits your specific needs.
This article will describe the general settings.
This settings hould be enabled only if the test is fully oral, because the student will not be able to interact with the test. If this setting is enabled, the question set you use can only contain the Oral question type.
Enable auto submission (home exam)
On tests without Safe Exam Browser (typically home exams), the planner can enable auto submission. The test will then automatically submit when the closing time is reached for each candidate. Until then, the candidates can change their submission an unlimited number of times.
Thesis (requires activation)
The thesis option is available for some customers. This option does not have any practical impact other than marking the submission as a Master thesis or Bachelor thesis in the API output.
Grading only - Disable candidates from taking this test online (requires activation)
The purpose of this setting is to register student responses that originate from outside of Inspera. The most common use is handwritten answers that are scanned, or just for recording a grade that will then be available to transfer to external systems by way of integrations or API exports.
Students will not be able to respond in Inspera if this setting is enabled.
Explanations are also supported for this test type, which means that the candidates can log in and read any explanations as soon as they are sent by the planner or grader.
As of April 3rd 2020, the new marking tool is open for all. We encourage you to try it out, and remember that you can switch back to the classic tool at any time.
