How to use the Behavior tab

You can find the Behavior tab under the Create section of the Exam test format.

There are many settings there that can be useful for you when setting up your exam.

Let's explore the options:

Exam type

This dropdown menu allows you to choose between the following options:

Participant can change answers: It means that, before submitting the exam, your participants can go back and forth and edit/change the answers.
If you are using free text questions, this setting is not advised, because the changes are only applied when the participant clicks on the button "Next question.” So, if the participant is editing the answers from the last to the first, the changes won't be saved.
Participant can skip answers: Your participants can skip a question they don't know the answer to if you choose this setting.
Participant cannot change answers: After proceeding to the next question, the participant cannot go back and edit the answer.
Participant can see the correct answer after answering a question: That can be useful if you want the student to learn from their mistakes while taking the exam.
Participant has multiple attempts per question: For multiple-choice questions, the number of attempts is the number you set here, or the number of answers - 1, whichever is lower. For other question types, the number of attempts matches the number set here.
All questions are shown on a single page: Yes, that's possible. It's an experimental version, so I hope it works for you!

Proceed to next question

Here you can determine if the participant goes directly to the next question after choosing an answer, or manually clicking next.

Time limit

Show explanations directly after answering a question

Here you can show the explanations, or feedback, that you added for your questions and answers when creating your exam:

Question order

Your questions can be presented to the test taker in the order in which they were created, or at random (here's where you can use a question bank and have time system pick a number of questions from it, so each participant gets a different set of questions. You can read more about it here.

Here you enter the number of questions to be picked from the questionbank

It is also possible to randomize questions from specific tags or categories in your Exam. For that, you first need to create categories and assign them to your questions. Then, you can select the option Categorical: Select by category and pick a number of questions from each category. Read more about it here.
