What is Quilgo?

Quilgo is an online testing platform that allows you to create quizzes and conduct online tests, exams and assessments with a timer, online AI proctoring and other features. Quilgo also has an integration with Google Forms.

First, provide a title for your quiz, then choose the type for your first question. You can choose Multiple Choice, Checkboxes, Dropdown, Short Answer (single line) or Paragraph (multi-line). You can mix question types in your quiz. You can also start by creating multiple sections if you wish.

Use sections features

By default, Quilgo creates a single section. Each section has a feature called Question Randomizer . This feature allows you to randomly assign a set number of questions from the section per a test taker. For example, you have 20 questions in a section, 10 points each, and set the Question Randomizer to 5. This means each test taker will receive 5 random questions and would be able to earn up to 50 points for this section.

Question Randomizer is set to 5

You can add as many questions in a section as you wish. To add a question, focus on a question or a section, click "Add question" and choose the type. The new question will be populated right after your current selection.

You can add another question or section after your current selection

Use question features

Each question has a mandatory title. You can use rich-text controls to style your question properly. The score is marked with the star icon   and is enabled by default. You can change the score by using the arrow controls next to the score number, or by direct input. You can also disable the score by clicking on the star icon if you wish.

You can change the score or completely turn it off for a question

You can also add a description to a question. To do that click the ellipsis icon  and choose "Description". You can also benefit from the rich text in your descriptions. You can add a description to a section as well.

Multiple Choice, Checkboxes and Dropdowns have options. You can provide as many options as you like. To mark the options as correct, use the tick  icon. For Multiple Choice and Dropdown questions, you can only mark a single option as correct, for Checkboxes, you can choose multiple options. For Checkboxes questions test takers must check all correct options to get the score, in other words, it uses the "AND" operation, NOT "OR".

Use question features | Quilgo
You can check multiple correct answers for a Checkboxes question

You can also make a question optional. To do so, click on the "Required" caption. Making a question optional does NOT affect the maximum score.

Sort sections and questions

Both sections, questions and options can be moved around. To sort items, use the "up-down" arrow icon .

You can also enable the Progress Bar and Question Shuffling features. The icons are located next to the quiz title. Question Shuffling works really well with the Question Randomizer feature.

Configure online tests

Start configuring online tests

After a quiz has been built you can start conducting online tests. However, before you deliver your tests, you might want to adjust the default configuration according to your needs. To open the settings click the "Settings" button.

Start configuring online tests | Quilgo
Adjust duration and start time, enable proctoring and more

Choose start time

This setting defines when test takers can start their tests. Quilgo provides two options here: "Any time" (default) and "Start no earlier than". If you choose the latter, test takers will be able to register for their tests but won't be able to start before the date and time you set.

Choose start time | Quilgo
Choose any time or a specific start time

Set duration

This value defines how long would you like your tests to be. By default Quilgo sets 60 minutes and you can choose the value from 1 minute to 1440 minutes (24 hours).

Set duration | Quilgo
Choose any number of minutes, see how much it is in hours and minutes

Enable submission deadline

The Submission Deadline is a "hard deadline" option, which means, it has priority over the duration. For example, if the deadline is 16:00, the duration of the online test is 1 hour, but the respondent starts the test at 15:40, then they would only have 20 minutes to take the test, not 1 hour.

Enable submission deadline | Quilgo
Choose no deadline or a specific date/time

Set access

Quilgo provides two access options: "Public" (default) and "Restricted". The "Public" option does not require any configuration, however, it might not be suitable for online exams or interviews, for example, where restricted access might be preferred. However, you can limit the registration to a specific domain to exclude unwanted registrations.

Set access | Quilgo
Public access does not require tests pre-creation

If you choose "Restricted" you will need to pre-create online tests by providing test takers' email addresses or/and their names, to identify them later. You may also import test takers from another quiz. The "Settings" button will change to the "+ Add tests" button.

Set access | Quilgo
Restricted access requires tests pre-creation

Choose optional features

Finally, you can choose optional features.

  • "Camera tracking" makes periodical camera snapshots and detects faces. This feature requires access to test takers' webcams.
  • "Screen tracking" makes periodical screen snapshots and also may be triggered if suspicious behaviour has been detected.
     Attention. Screen tracking can not work on mobile devices due to their technical limitations.
  • "Overtime" allows test takers to continue their tests after the time exceeds the test duration. Once the clock reaches 0 seconds, it will turn into a stopwatch and will count seconds incrementally as overtime.
  • "Auto-submit answers" submits answers automatically when the time is over. By default, each test takes has a choice if they want to submit their answers when time is over. This feature is not available when Overtime is enabled.
  • "Hide timer" continues time tracking but without a visual part of the timer. This feature is available only when Overtime is enabled.
  • "Show score after submission" shows the final score to test takers. Wrong/correct answers are still not visible though.
Brand your quiz

Deliver tests

Use a single test link

The default method is the Single Link and it is introduced once a new quiz is created. You can copy this link and send it to the group of test takers. If you use the Public access mode, then anyone would be able to register with any email address and take a test. It also is possible for the same person to use multiple email addresses and take multiple tests in this access mode. If you chose the Restricted access mode and already pre-created online tests by providing email addresses in advance, test takers will only be able to register specifically with these email addresses and will need to confirm the ownership. Single Link appears when a new quiz is created and also is always accessible by clicking the "Send Tests" button.

Send test links via email in bulk

You may also consider sending individual links to online tests in bulk. This feature is most useful in the Restricted access mode. Note, you need to pre-create tests with email addresses to use this feature, pre-creation with names only would not work as there will be no email addresses to send to. To use this feature click the "Send Tests" button and then choose "Send tests directly via email". You will need to choose the tests you are going to send, provide a subject and a supporting message and send. You will also be able to send an email to yourself first to check if it looks intended.

Copy test links

You can also copy a link to a pre-created test, this is mostly useful in the Restricted access mode. To do so, click the "Copy Direct Link" button correspondent to the test.

Copy and send direct links individually via any preferred method

Make sure respondents receive test links

The most common reason for test links delivery failure is spam filters. It is common for organisations to set rules against spam, however, they sometimes cut "good" emails off as well. If you think that this might be the reason, please contact your system administrator and ask them if emails from Quilgo have been recently blocked.

Take tests

Start tests

Before test takers can start filling out the test, they will see a welcoming screen. Depending on the additional features you choose there might be a setup process with instructions and additional information.

If the test is set on a future date, test takers will see a countdown and will not be able to start their test earlier.
