Replace Questions

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Use this option if you are mostly happy with the test you have created but there are one or two questions that you would like replaced. This option is available for Custom tests in a ‘pending’ state. Once you have accepted your test, you will no longer be able to replace questions. You can swap up to 20% of questions in a Maths test. You can replace one passage and its questions for a short Reading test, or two passages and related questions for a Reading test over 30 minutes long.

Note: Try the Create Similar feature if you want to create a test using the same settings as another test in your school.

You may notice that some questions displayed on the Replace Questions screen look funny. This is because some questions are only designed for paper administration. These questions will display correctly when you view the test in PDF format.
