KS Help Notes_Library 02_Editing a KS Test
EDITING A KS TEST – DRAFT TESTS
KS administrators have full editorial rights to make changes to KS ‘off the shelf’ tests. We have built an intuitive, 4-step edit process.
First, you need to take a copy of the test. Go to the KnowledgeSmart Tests page and use the ‘Import’ tool to create an identical, editable copy of your chosen test. This will be displayed in the Draft Tests page of your dashboard.
Hover your mouse over the 'Edit test' button; note that a small pop-up menu appears to the left of the 'Edit test' icon. This menu allows you to skip straight to the relevant step of the edit process, depending on the change you want to make.
Step one is where you enter the test name and a brief description of the key features being covered by the test.
Step two is where you assign modules from your library, to be linked together in a 'daisy-chain', creating a longer test. Use the green '+' icon, to add modules to your test. Conversely, you can remove modules by selecting the delete icon next to the module name, in the Your modules panel on the right of your dashboard.
Step three is where you choose how many questions you want to be assigned in each module. The Available questions column displays the total number of questions in the library 'pool'. The Assigned questions column displays how many questions will be randomly presented to users during a live test. Click on the 'Edit test module' icon, to select the required number of questions in each stage then click the green tick to save your changes.
Step four is where you can edit your test settings. Here you can set your preferences for presenting the sample test files to users, set a time limit on test sessions, provide additional instructions to your users, hide or show the timer in the test UI and assign meta tags, or keywords, to each test. Category tags are used to help you search and group your tests, in your main library.
You can view a summary page for each test, by clicking on the magnifying glass icon, next to the test name, on the Draft Tests page.
This opens a new page with a summary of test modules, available questions, assigned questions, test settings, time limit, welcome text and category tags.
Copy tests by selecting the copy icon.
Clicking the 'Download question files' icon will download all of the question file material associated with this test.
Clicking the 'Download coaching files' icon will download all of the coaching material associated with this test. Please note that not all authors provide their coaching notes as downloads; some appear as plain text notes, assigned to each question.

Clicking the ‘Export Questions to CSV’ icon will download all of the questions associated with this test.
