How to Set up your Exam Settings (Legacy)

We have released our improved Assessment feature, with a variety of new questions, response tracking, and advanced scoring (points per question/answer). You can learn how to migrate your existing Assessments here.

The first time you create a Legacy Exam, you will be prompted to choose your desired settings, including a passing grade, test duration, questions' order, etc.
