Create your first tests
How do Quilgo tests work
Every test in Quilgo is individual per a respondent. This means, a single Quilgo test can only be taken once. Each test can be created with its own settings such as start time, duration etc. You can also choose optional features for your online tests such as recording screen or camera snapshots.
Creating tests is simple, here is how it is done:
- Go to your Quilgo Dashboard.
- Click + Create tests button.
- Choose the time for your tests. If you choose "Any time", the tests will be available immediately.
- Choose the duration, for example, 20 minutes.
- Provide names or emails for your tests. You can paste a comma separated list or type manually by hitting Enter key to separate. For example, enter your email address and hit Enter.
If you choose to provide names or other identifiers of your respondents other than their email addresses, you would only be able to copy and send individual test links directly to them. If you choose to provide email addresses, you would be able to send a single form link to the whole group or send links to the tests in bulk via Quilgo.
- Choose any of the additional features as you wish.
- Click Create tests button on the bottom of the window.
You can send pre-created tests via several methods:
- Copy and send individual link. Click the Copy direct link button next to the test, then send a link to the respondent, or open the link in another tab to see yourself how Quilgo works.
This method does not require tests to contain email addresses.
- Copy and send group link. Click the Send tests button, copy the link from the box and send the link to all respondents, or open the link in another tab to see yourself how Quilgo works.
This method requires tests to contain email addresses so respondents can use them for authentication into their tests.
- Send individual links in bulk. Click the Send tests button. Click "Send tests directly via email". Choose tests to send and click "Next". Provide custom subject and message (optional) and click "Next". Review and click "Send tests".
This method requires tests to contain email addresses.
Taking online tests
Starting a test
Before respondents can start filling the test, they would see a welcoming screen with simple insturctions and information. Depending on the additional features you chose there will be a simple process of starting the test and some instructions. For example:If you chose to take camera or screen snapshots respondents will be notified and will need to provide access to their camera/screen.If you chose "Force form to close when time is over" feature respondents will be notified to submit their tests in time or their time will not be recorded.
Taking a test
Once the form opens, it will contain a timer on the top of the screen. Respondents can fill the form as they would do in Google Forms. The Submission ID field will be automatically pre-filled and should not be edited, otherwise the time will not be recorded.

Once a test is submitted, you will see a Click to load updates in your Quilgo Dashboard. Click this button to update the stats.
You do not need to click this button if you have just opened your dashboard, the information on the screen will already be up-to-date.
