Before implementing any changes, make sure to review what each test setting does. 👇

To review the benefits of test settings:

Choosing the best test settings to implement can feel, at times, overwhelming. Try not to overthink it! There are some overall big benefits to taking the time to do so, and test settings can always be revisited and adjusted down the line. ✍️



By pre-selecting who receives automated team test results via email, both your training team and trainees benefit by allowing your trainers a seamless way to catch learning challenges quickly, ensuring future mishaps are minimized.



Question orders and displays:

Having the option to either set a specific question order for your tests or randomize them, along with full control over the allotted question amount, allows you more flexibility to test trainees in different ways.


Want a wider data set on your team's training retention? Randomize your questions and only display a few per test taker.



Want a more traditional test model for vital training, like knowledge checking your team's retention on the company handbook subject? Make sure your test is in a set order with all test questions included.




Passing scores (%):

Setting expectations with your team is key to successful outcomes. However, choosing a percentage to tack onto a test might feel "mean" or "school-like," but remembering that your policy and procedure retentions are directly related to business success may help reduce the guilt. 😉


So don't be afraid to ask for a 100% passing score! You can always check in with your teammates if they are struggling to meet that expectation to see how you can fill in any knowledge gaps or revise content to be clearer.



🔥 Tip: Review these 5 proven test strategies that ensure your teammates are getting the very best training value out of the content you've painstakingly created for them.




Can I limit the number of test attempts allowed?

No. Limiting the number of test attempts that can be taken or blocking any additional test reattempts is not an available feature setting. Your trainees will have an unlimited number of attempts available for every test they are assigned.
