When you are creating a worksheet, you will notice
3 icons next to each question in the test bank window. These icons indicate
various properties of each question. The icons indicate whether a question
is dynamic or static, the question type, and if the question is a test
bank question, or a user-created question.
PRINTING MULTIPLE FORMS
- Die Icon = Dynamic Question
- Crossed-out Die Icon = Static Question
- "ABCD" Icon = Multiple Choice (including True/False) Question
- Pencil and Paper Icon = Free Response Question
- Book Icon = Test Bank Question
- Smiley Face Icon = User-Created question
To print multiple forms means to print multiple versions of a worksheet.
Each form, or worksheet, will contain the same questions, only the questions
will be scrambled. A corresponding answer key will be printed for each
To print multiple forms, click on the Print icon in the upper toolbar
while in the Test Building function of HM Testing. At the bottom of the
Print dialog box, you will see the "Forms" area. Where it reads "Number
of instances to print", you may enter the number of worksheet versions
you would like to print. For example, if you chose to print two forms,
HM Testing will print two copies of the same worksheet with the questions,
answers, and distractors rearranged. If you would like your printer to
give you multiple copies of each different form, you will need to locate
the copies field in your Print command dialog box and enter the number
of copies you would like to have printed.
Where it reads "Starting instance number", you may enter the starting
number you would like to use that will appear at the top of each worksheet.
In other words, this will place the version number on each worksheet so
you will know which version a student is using.
However, the instance number will not appear on the worksheet automatically.
For the instance number to appear, you must first select Insert -->
Header/Footer from the Worksheet menu. When the "Header/Footer" window
appears, click on the "Insert" menu at the top of the window, then click
"Form number". Click OK. The form number will now print on each version
of a worksheet.
