Click Add a Pathway Assessment at the bottom of the basket.
If you have not added a Diagnostic Assessment to the Pathway, the questions will be pulled from every subject available. The User will take a final Assessment based on all items in the basket.
If you have added a Diagnostic Assessment to the Pathway, you will be presented with two options.
The results from a Diagnostic Assessment will create the Pathway Assessment based on the User's results from the Diagnostic Assessment, taking the stipulated number of questions from only those topics not Exempted.
All individual activities or items in my basket will create an Assessment based on all items in the basket regardless of the User's results when they completed the Diagnostic Assessment.
Click an option to proceed.
If you choose the first option, you will then be presented with a window similar to the below.
Each option is explained in the below table:
|Passmark and maximum number of questions||
If Pathway Assessment is based on the results of the Diagnostic Assessment, the passmark and number of questions will be the same as the Diagnostic Assessment and cannot be changed.
|Maximum number of attempts||
Set the number of attempts you will allow each User. Should they reach the maximum number of attempts, the User will be unable to attempt the Assessment again until an Administrator unlocks it.
If you wish to mark the User as failed if they reach the maximum number of Attempts, tick the checkbox Mark Assessment as failed if out of attempts.
|Retake assessments only on failed activities||If the User needs to retake the Assessment, you can decide whether they take the complete Pathway Assessment again or just cover the areas where they have previously failed.|
|Amount of feedback given post-assessment||
You can set the amount of feedback given post-assessment.
The dropdown menu for this option allows you to choose the amount of feedback a User is given after they have completed the Diagnostic Assessment:
Read our guide Set the level of feedback given post - Diagnostic Assessment for more information on each of the options.
If you choose the second option, you will then be presented with a window similar to the below.
|Number of questions||
Choose the number of questions you wish to make up the Assessment.
This can be set per Item or Activity:
If your Basket consists of one eLearning Activity and one Pathway which contains two eLearning Activities, this counts as two Items but three Activities for the purposes of the Assessment.
The total number of questions that will make up the Assessment may vary according to whether you select Item or Activity but will be displayed as per the screenshot below.
|Set a passmark||
Choose the overall passmark you want to use for the Diagnostic Assessment using the dropdown menu.
This works in conjunction with the overall number of questions displayed - in the screenshot below, it will be an Assessment with 15 questions.
For example, if you choose a passmark of 70% but the Assessment only contains 5 questions, the user would actually need to score 80% (or 4 out of 5) to pass as 3 correct answers would be 60%.
|Passmark and Scores||
You can choose whether you want to display or hide the passmark and score for the User.
You might want to hide a passmark and score if you are creating a gap analysis style diagnostic assessment using Likert Scale questions. These are designed for Users to rate their confidence.
Our guide Introduction to a Gap Analysis Assessment explains this further.
|Order of questions||
You can choose whether the questions presented to the User will be displayed at random from any of the activities or ordered by activity, meaning in the order presented in the pathway.
Click on Save to add the Pathway Assessment.
The Pathway Assessment will now appear at the bottom of the basket. It will always be the last Activity for the User to complete. You can now Save Pathway to create your Pathway and give it with a name.
