Wondering if you can use AES to assign a midterm or final exam to your students? The Create an Exam feature is the perfect solution!

In this article, you'll learn two ways to create a custom exam and the difference between the two.

What's the Difference Between a Generated Exam and a Blank Slate Exam?

Generated: This option will automatically generate an exam with AES questions. For an automatic exam, you will need to enter the number of questions and which modules the questions should pull from.

Blank Slate: This option allows you to pick the questions for your exam manually. When you first create this type of exam, it will be empty. Click Add Questions to add specific questions from the AES question pool or create your own unique questions.
