Creating A New Assessment

From inside the main page of your Assessment Generator account, you will find a button in the upper right-hand corner that says “New Assessment”.

Creating a new assessment

When you are ready to create a new assessment, you simply click this button.

A box then pops up on your screen to ask whether you would like to create a simple assessment or a type-based assessment

Create New Assessment Pop-up

Simple Assessment

A simple assessment gives a single numeric score based on the answers of those who take your assessment.  You assign points to the answer choices for each question to provide them with 1 overall score for your assessment.

Type-Based Assessment

With a type-based assessment, you can assign those who take your assessment to one of several types, or categories, based upon how they answer your questions.

This is useful when you want to determine the best product or area of focus that will help people who take your assessment.

For example, you may want to determine which area of focus offers the greatest opportunity for improvement for those who take your assessment.

You assign points and categories for the answer choices of each assessment question.  Your users will get a separate score for each type and will be assigned a specific type depending about how they score.

Assessment Generator Editor

Once you make your selection, you will be taken to the Assessment Generator editor for your assessment.

AG Editor -- Simple Assessment

At the top of the page are 5 tabs. These are the 5 tabs that you will see for a simple assessment:

  1. Setup — where you enter your general assessment information
  2. Questions — where you enter your assessment instructions and questions
  3. Style — where you can design and preview the look of your assessment
  4. Scoring — where you set up your score ranges and interpretations for your assessment
  5. Results — where you define how you want your users to receive their assessment results

If you’re creating a type-based assessment, you’ll see a “Types” tab instead of the “Scoring” tab.

AG Editor -- Type-Based Assessment

The “Types” tab is the place to set up your types or categories for your type-based assessment.

Next, please check out how to set up your assessment.
