In Educake, if you want to save a test for later without assigning it to a class, you can save it as a template test. Other teachers at your school can see and use your template tests, just like they can with your assigned tests. This article will show you how to work with template tests in Educake.

Creating new template tests

You can create template tests in Educake in the same way that you set regular tests. Start by clicking "Create New Test or Template" in the course you're working with. (Note: this button used to be called "Assign Tests".) Here's what this looks like:

Then choose your subject, unit(s), topic(s), and questions. When you reach the "Add Extras" page, you'll have the choice to continue and assign the test to classes, or to save it as a template. Save it as a template by clicking the "Save Test as Template" button, here:

If you'd rather assign the test right away instead of saving it as a template for later, just click "Set Test Dates" to move on to the next screen.

If you save your test as a template, you'll be taken to your list of saved templates.

Editing, using and deleting template tests

Once you've created a template test, it's easy to make changes to it or use it to set tests. You can do all of these things by clicking on "Saved Template Tests":
