Note: You may write the test name for the reference of your team but while presenting it to the candidate we suggest, it should be the job role he/she has applied for.
Other options of Test settings will help you to make the test easy/ difficult even without changing the questions!
c. Type of test
There are two types of tests that determines how the questions will appear to the candidates while writing the test.
Multiple questions with the mark for review option
Here the candidate will have the access to view all the questions on the test screen. At a glance, candidates can see all the questions one by one and choose which one to answer first. Moreover, candidates can mark questions for review. Below is the image of how the Mark for Review option appears on the test platform. There are the color codes for the reference which include questions not attempted, correct questions, questions marked for review & questions attempted.
Here, the candidate will be able to see only one question at a time. So to attempt the next question, candidate has to skip or answer the current one which indirectly makes the test difficult.
