Test recipes


Recipe: save and activate in student view

When you have added all of your questions to the recipe and are happy with the way the settings are configured, you can save the recipe and activate it for use in student view. In student view, you can schedule the exam and configure correction settings for open questions. In addition, you can also test the exam as a student. (see step 4).

Student view is also where students perform the exam, although they need their own log-in credentials.

  • Step 1

    • Click Save recipe at the top right corner of the page.

  • Step 2

    • After you click Save, a new button will appear that says Activate recipe. That button links the recipe into student view.

  • Please note! The ‘Activate recipe’ and ‘Archive’ buttons are right next to each other.

    When you click ‘Archive’, a window will pop up asking whether you want to archive the recipe. If you confirm, the recipe will be removed. There will be no way to recover the recipe.

  • Step 3

    • Click Activate recipe.
    • After you activate the recipe, the text on the button will change from Activate recipe to Deactivate recipe.
    • The recipe is now linked into student view.

  • Please note! You need to save the recipe every time you change anything about it. If you forget to hit Save, your changes will not be applied to the recipe in student view.

    Advice: Do not adjust the recipe within one hour before the start of the exam. This can result in students making different versions of questions during the exam.

  • Step 4

    • To see what the exam will look like to students, you can test the recipe in student view. The page Recipe: preview exam describes how to test a recipe.
