Tests, Surveys, and Pools



Tests are graded and usually a time restricted assignment. To see the guide for tests, click here.




Surveys are not graded; they are a means of gathering information for Students.




Test Questions can be added into Pools so that they can be stored for repeated use. Pools act like repositories for sets of questions. Pools can be imported into and exported for reuse.

Questions in Pools are linked to Tests or Surveys when they are added to the Test or Survey. Pool questions are only presented to Students when they are included in a Test or Survey.
