Alternatively, you can go to the Compliance section in the Advanced settings and set a time period/date by which the exam must be completed, adding reminders for the same.

What are the recommended exam settings?

Apart from anti-cheating & privacy settings, the other most recommended configurations for online exams include setting minimum passing scores for certification, restricting the allowed attempts, adding a time limit, disabling question skipping, setting up a schedule for quiz availability, enabling review before final submission, and tagging questions to test competency on specific topics.

If you have a large number of exam takers, it’s also recommended that you use virtual classrooms to set up multiple instructors, learner groups, group admins, etc. for optimal exam management.

How to set the minimum passing score and maximum allowed attempts for an exam

You can set the minimum passing score for your exam by navigating to the General tab in your exam settings and locating “Completion Certificate” under Presentation.

Here you can set the minimum score percentage that exam takers must achieve for certification as well as customize your certificate as per your needs. To set the maximum allowed attempts, you need to scroll to the Order section and choose a number for “Number of Attempts Allowed”.

You can also restrict your learners from reattempting an exam for a specified period of time using the “Lock Quiz After an Attempt” option in Advanced settings.

How to automate & configure grading

Apart from the essay and video response questions, all question types are graded automatically based on your point assignment.

ProProfs lets you assign points to questions and answer options in a bunch of ways. You can choose between regular, partial, and custom grading to suit your needs.

In regular grading, the learner is either awarded the full points or none at all, whereas, in partial grading, they get points based on how correctly they answered a checkbox, matching, or fill-in-the-blanks question.

Custom grading, the most flexible option, lets you assign different points for each answer option. You can also have negative marking for incorrect responses and award bonus points for exemplary performance.
