Creating a test for eKlausur@home


What you need to know

In order to conduct an eKlausur@home, you first need questions that you have created in your question pool (see Helpcard 40-110) and a test created from them (instructions on this Helpcard).
In the next step you have to integrate the finished test into a special FELIX course "eKlausur@homeMaster" (see Helpcard 20-080).

Minimise risk of copying:
(1) It is possible to randomise the answers to a question (you have to take this into account already when creating the question) as well as to let FELIX randomly shuffle the questions themselves within the test as well as created test sections. Please refer to Helpcard 20-070 for more information.
(2) If you have created equivalent question variants of a question, then you can randomly distribute these question variants to the examinees. Please refer to Helpcard 20-075.

What you have to do

  1. Open the "Question pool".

    • Check again the questions you want to include in your test.
      Do not use umlauts, spaces or special characters in the file names of images that you include in questions.

    • Should the answers within the questions of FELIX be randomly mixed? For single-choice and multiple-choice this is already preset. For other question types (e.g. matrix question) you can configure this in the tab "Selection" of the question.

  2. In the "Question Pool", select the desired questions with a check mark in front of the question and click "Create Test" at the bottom of the page.

    • The "Create Test" window opens and provides an overview of the selected questions.

  3. Confirm the selection with "Create test".

  4. Enter a title for your test according to the following rule including the test date:
    [instructor] _[comprehensible abbreviation of course title]_ [yyyy]_[mm]_[dd]_EKLT
    Beispiel: Meyer_BWL_2018_07_14_EKLT

    • Only if you follow this naming rule, is it possible to check later if the correct exam is included.

    • Do not use umlauts and avoid all other special characters except (),/ \,-_.

    • Avoid titles that are too long, as this can cause problems when exporting the results.

  5. Click on "Create".

    • The new test with the selected questions opens in the test editor.
      The selected questions have been inserted below a section. Sections are used to structure the test.

    • The question titles can be hidden in the display of the test so that students are only shown "Question 1, Question 2". This is already preset in the exam course template (eKlausur@home-Master).

  6. Click on the "Section" (left) and give the section a title. "Save" the change.

    • Assign a short section title (max. 40 characters) to avoid moving the layout.

    • How to randomise the questions within a section as well as several sections in one FELIX test is shown in Helpcard 20-070.

  7. You want to add more sections?
    You want to delete questions, add new questions from the pool or decouple a question in the test from the question pool?

    You can find this info on the Helpcard 40-130 in steps 4.

  8. Define a pass threshold: Select the top test element in the structure on the left and, if desired, enter the number of points that the system uses to classify a test as "passed" in the middle screen area under "Required score...".

    • The points are calculated from the sum of all defined points. The pass threshold is invisible for students and is for your information during the correction phase.

    • You should set or change all other test settings (e.g. time limit) in your exam course (eKlausur@home master course), into which the test must be integrated after completion (see Helpcard 20-080).

  9. Include the finished test in the "EKLK_eKlausur@home" (see Helpcard 20-080).

    • Leave the status in the test at "Preparation". The test becomes accessible to students by being included in the course.
