Different Test Types
The Socratease Assessment Platform is flexible enough to let you create different types of tests. You may create a simple quiz with a few Multiple-choice Questions. Or create an assessment that tests a candidate's coding abilities and records a video to check their communication skills. This article lists and briefly explains what the different test types are.
This is the simplest of Socratease tests. Think Google Forms with several additional features. You can ask MCQs, MCAs, Short-text Answer Questions, Voice Input Questions and so on. All the different question types are listed here.
You may assign negative points to questions, and show questions one-by-one or all at once.

Useful for conducting large-scale tests. Imagine you want to test someone's English and Geography skills. You can create 2 Question Banks and add questions to each. Each question will have a difficulty level assigned to it.
You can then create a Question Bank Quiz from these Questions Banks. Questions are randomly picked from these Banks and different users will see different questions, but of a similar difficulty level.

Once you have created Question Banks, you can create different quizzes from them. In the example above, you may create a Quiz that has 5 easy and 3 difficult Geography questions, and 2 easy and 4 difficult English questions.

Useful to test people's programming skills. You come up with a problem statement, specify the input format and the expected output format of the program. The candidate writes code within an IDE that supports multiple languages.
The candidate can execute the code to test if it works and then submit it. Socratease automatically checks if the code is correct or not and awards points accordingly.

You may want to combine different tests and test types and create a single shareable link. For example, if you want to test someone for their Programming and Communication skills, you can create a Coding Challenge and a Video Interview and bundle that into an assessment.
The candidate can attempt the different tests sequentially, or switch between tests, depending on how you configure the assessment.
