Once you've worked through the basics of using AES with your students, you're likely to have questions about some of the more detailed pieces of the system.

In this article, we'll answer the most common questions teachers like you ask about the assessments within the AES system.

Before diving into the details, let's do a quick review of the terms we use when talking about AES assessments:

  • Quiz: A formative assessment your students complete at the end of a unit.
  • Test: A summative assessment completed at the end of a module.
  • Custom Exam: A summative assessment created by you with the Create an Exam feature.
  • Pre-Test: An optional assessment before a module that does not count towards a students' grades.


Can I delete a question from a quiz or test?

The quizzes and tests are not currently able to be edited by teachers.

Can I add an image to an exam question?

Currently, the Create an Exam feature only allows you to add text-based questions to your custom exams.

Closing a unit will not remove questions from that unit from the module test.

Yes! If you fully remove a unit from a module, the questions will not be included in the module test.

Can I copy an exam and share it with another teacher?

Yes, if you are on the same AES customer site.

To share your custom exam with another teacher, you will need to share the class with them. Once the class is shared, they can copy the exam into one of their own classes.

How can I preview the module pre-test?

To learn what your students will be asked on a module pre-test, you can look at the module test preview.

The pre-test is the same assessment as the module test, so you can compare how your students' understanding improved after completing the module.

How do my students access the pre-test?

If you have the pre-test enabled for a class, your students will be automatically directed to take the pre-test when they enter the module.

Students won't be able to access the eLearning lessons until they complete the pre-test.

Can I only give certain students access to an assessment?

Yes! You can allow an individual student to access an assessment that is closed by following these instructions: How to Open an Assessment for an Individual Student

Can I reset an assessment grade?

Yes! You can reset a student's grade for any graded assessment.

Can a student take an assessment more than once?

Yes, however depending on the type of assessment you will need to follow different steps to allow this.

To adjust how many times your students can take a unit quiz, you can change the quiz settings on a per-class basis.

If you want to allow a student to take a module test or custom exam again, you'll need to reset the assessment for that student.
