How to create a Test

All Self Study / On-Demand course are required to have a comprehension evaluation "test" prior to issuing a CE Certificate.  If your content housing software does not already have a testing mechanism you will need to utilize CE Zoom's Testing mechanism prior to issuing your CE Certificate.  If your housing software already has a testing mechanism you are not required to utilize CE Zoom's testing mechanism to issue your CE Certificate through CE Zoom.

CE Zoom's Testing Mechanism allows you to quiz your attendees over the information they learned from taking your course.  All testing questions are in a multiple-choice format and each completed test will be instantly graded after the attendee submits a completed test.  Each attendee is required to pass the test with the minimum passing percentage, set by you (AGD PACE courses need to have an 80% passing score.) If a professional fails your test they will be asked to re-take until they have submitted a passing scored test.

You will need to create a NEW test for each and every course of your offer.  If you are reviewing your course content to re-post your self-study/ on-demand course for a consecutive year, we do offer a copy feature that allows you to quickly re-create the same test so you can update a question or add in any new questions (How to create test using the copy feature).  If you have no changes to your reviewed self-study/ on-demand course you can use the original test for the newly posted reviewed course.
