Test Time Settings
Consider potential challenges students may encounter, such as internet or device issues, when setting a timed test. To accommodate these issues, it is advisable to provide ample time between the start and end times. For instance, if you intend for the test to commence at 10:00 AM with a duration of 30 minutes, set the end time as 10:45 AM. By allowing sufficient time, you can ensure a more realistic and stress-free testing experience for all students involved.
Sharing the Link

It is advisable to share the demo test link with students at least 24 hours in advance. This allows them sufficient time to test the compatibility of their device and make alternate arrangements if needed.
On mobile phones, certain apps like Telegram and Facebook have their own in-app browsers. If you send the test link through these applications,Test will load within the in-app browser. In such cases, students will need to open the same link again in Chrome or Firefox. To avoid this issue, it is recommended to use Gmail or Google Classroom for sharing the link. Alternatively, inform students that copying the link and directly pasting it into Chrome or Firefox is a better approach.
During the test, make yourself available to students in case they encounter any issues. First-time test takers, in particular, may face challenges. It is beneficial if they can contact you for assistance and prompt resolution. Utilize communication platforms like Google Meet, WhatsApp, or other chat applications to provide the necessary support.

Share these reports with your students to provide feedback on their performance and suggest areas for improvement.
