  • How do I create tests in a group?
    • Enter your group as an administrator.
    • Select "Settings".
    • Then select "Applications".
    • Click on "Install" next to "Tests".
    As soon as "Tests" application is installed think of a name for it in the group. Example: "Tests about animals". Change the visibility and display status of your application to allow your group participants to pass the tests. Content block under news feed is the best place for your tests but you can pin only one application there. Several applications will be shown differently. You will not see any tests opening the application for the first time. Click "Management" and select "Create a Test".
    You can create your test using several formats. Read descriptions for every format in the new window and choose what suits you best.
    When the format of the test is chosen enter its name and description in the corresponding fields. Reading this information your community participants will understand why your test is interesting for them. To add questions to your test click "Add a poll". Enter your question, answer option and add an image in the Question Settings Menu. Add comments that will appear after every answer option and mark the correct version.
    Using "Test Results" tab add a text that will appear according to the number of points gained by a user. You can choose the range of points individually. All done! Good luck in creating tests for your subscribers!
