Quiz Authorization Types in ExamJet

In ExamJet you can set an authorization method when you publish a quiz.

As you know, the previous version had only one authorization type. Candidates had to enter previously generated access codes in order to take the quiz. This is very secure way to protect a quiz but, sometimes it’s annoying or excessive.

We have decided to add some flexibility to this part of the system and with help of our early testers chose to include two more authorization types. Now, the complete list of authorization system consists from:

  1. Anonymous Testing
  2. Generate Access Codes
  3. Set Master Password

Each one is designed to correspond to certain requirements, and of course each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages.

Let’s take a closer look.


Anonymous Testing

When you choose to use the Anonymous Testing, all candidates can access the test or quiz without any limitation.

Pros

  • Any candidate can freely access this test or a quiz;
  • The candidate can enter his/her name or leave it blank;
  • It’s very convenient to use this type of authorization, when you don’t need any additional security.


Cons

  • You cannot control or limit taking attempts of a quiz. Any candidate can take the test or quiz as many times as he/she wants.


Generate Access Codes

When you choose to Generate Access Codes, it’s necessary to select groups of the candidates which will have an access to this test or quiz. After publishing, Test Manager will generate all access codes and saves them into the database. Candidates can now use them.

Pros

  • A test or a quiz is protected with an unique Access Code, this access code is valid for that test or quiz only;
  • You can print these access codes and give them to candidates;
  • You can set test attempt limit for each candidate separately.


Cons

  • Sometimes, too much security is not necessary. If the candidate wants to practice and he/she takes one quiz couple times a day, it’s very annoying to enter the same symbols over and over again.


Set Password

This type of authorization can protect the test or a quiz with one master password. Optionally, the candidate can enter his/her name or take the quiz anonymously.

Pros

  • Published test or quiz is protected from unauthorized access;
  • The candidate can enter his/her name or take the quiz anonymously.


Cons

  • You cannot control or limit taking attempts of a quiz. Any candidate can take the quiz as many times as he/she wants.
