How to create an online test?

In this tutorial, we will show you how to create an online test in the E-Learning Platform.

In Teach menu, click on Create a Test menu item. You can also see this link as left menu item under Manage Tests page as well.

Step 1: Select a test type

This brings up Add Test wizard as shown below. Choose Public or Private.

Public tests are listed in the tests marketplace allowing anyone with a BrainCert user account to enroll in your test. This is best for selling both Free and Paid courses.

Private tests are NOT listed in the tests marketplace. This is best suitable for sharing the test with your private training group or employees. Once you have created a private course, you can see 'Enrollment' options available in Manage Tests dashboard to enroll selected users and groups privately and securely.

Pre-Hire tests are NOT listed in the tests marketplace. This is best suitable for creating tests for pre-employment testing or as a candidate evaluation tool used by recruiters. You can create tests and assign it to external candidates or user groups. The test results are sent to your email directly (or can be viewed online) by accurately pinpointing the strengths and weaknesses of the candidates.

Step 2: Basic information

Type description for your test in the description field.

Upload a relevant image for this test or you can pick an image from BrainCert Library.
