You can click on an existing test to edit it. Also, you can click on the Add Test button, and it will open up the same screen but for a new test without any items assigned.
When you click the Add Test button, it will first ask you to name your new test.
Next, you will be presented the Test Edit/Edit Assembly screen.
First, note that there are two tabs on the top - Assembly and About. The Assembly tab is where all the work takes place. The About tab stores basic information about the test (e.g., Test ID (name) and Tags).
The Assembly tab looks daunting because there is a substantial amount of important functionality; its purpose is to allow you to assemble psychometrically sound test forms by finding appropriate items in your item banks, which might number in the tens of thousands.
Finding and Selecting Items
To find items, use the Filters: field on the left side. The simplest filter is the drop-down for the item bank you want to search (e.g., Math or Biology). The Tags can then be used to narrow the tags (e.g., from Math to 8th Grade or Algebra to Commutative Property). Using this same example, you could simply start typing "Commut..." and the exact tag would autocomplete.
The list in the bottom left displays the available items that meet your filter criteria. On this screen, three math items are shown, noting some basic information. You can click on the eye icon to preview the text of the item.
To add items on the test, you can do one of two things. First, you can grab an item to drag and drop it over to the panel on the right side. Second, you can select items with the checkboxes and click the Add Items button (or Remove Items to remove it from the test) on the top left of this screen.
To rearrange the sequence of items in the test, you can drag and drop the items in the right side panel.
When you are done, click the Save & Exit button. Building a quality test is a long process, and you will likely complete this task several times.
