This article refers to the functionality of Ortrac web. This article show how to verify the most important settings for an examination

This article assumes that you have created a new exam event and will show you how to configure the exam details to your specification. All exams that you have created can be found under their corresponding exam type in the left menu. In the previous article we created a Part 1 exam, so in this example we will find our recently created exam under the Part 1 section in the menu on the left side of the screen.

The next step is to edit the exam details. If you have just created a new exam you should have the exam details editor for the new exam in front of you (see image). If you cannot find the exam you created please follow the instructions in here: finding an exam.


The following basic information can be edited in this first step:

  • Name: The name of the exam can be edited at any time.

  • Exam code: This code is generated automatically and cannot be edited. The exam code is important for the day of the exam and will be used by candidates to sign in to the correct exam.

  • Grading scale: A dropdown list will give you a selection of grading scales available. Select the scale that best suits your exam.

  • Require safe browser: Ortrac provides an option for locking down a device (PC/Tablet) to certain applications and websites. This option is only recommended for BYOD (Bring your own Device) exams when the candidates take the exam using their own device.

Note: For any changes to take effect and be saved you must click on the "Save exam settings" button at the bottom of the exam details menu. 

The next step is to configure the question types to be used for the exam and which reports should be generated when the exam is completed.
