Respondents receive a notification about a new test in the Posts tab. After reading the test instructions on the start page, they can begin the test.
How does the training mode work?
Respondents can take the test in the training mode any number of times. It is also the only type of test mode in which the results are not saved.
In addition, it is not possible to collect personal data from respondents in the Test start form when the test is in training mode. This mode was developed for the study and mock tests only.
Who can benefit from the training mode?
Use training mode to help respondents prepare for an exam in which they will have to deal with questions from a large database. Working on the material in advance will allow them to approach the actual exam with calmness and confidence.
Do I need an account to take a test on Testportal?
You don't need an account to take an online test. However, as a respondent, you can access your tests in various ways, depending on the access type chosen by the test owner.
Depending on the test access type (again, determined by the test owner), you will receive either a link, an individual access code, or a group password. It is also possible to take the test as a team member in Microsoft Teams when it is shared as a new tab.
Who should register an account on Testportal?
Registration is required only if you want to start creating and sharing tests.
How many people can simultaneously take a test on Testportal?
By default, Testportal allows up to 1,000 respondents to take one online test at the same time.
Remember, when you use the Standard, PRO, or Free EDU plans, the number of respondents for your tests is equal to the monthly limit of collected results. The Standard plan allows for up to 30 collected results, the PRO plan limit is 300, and the Free EDU plan allows for 100 results.

How much personal data is required before taking a test?
To start the test, respondents usually need to provide personal data, depending on the test owner's settings.
How much personal data is required before taking the test?
If you are a test owner, you decide how much personal data is required. You can choose from available options and even create new fields, depending on your needs.
Start page and test start form
When creating the test, you will see the Test start page in the Test Configuration section. The Test start page is a space where you create instructions for respondents and a Test start form. The latter will allow you to collect all necessary data from your respondents.
You can decide what data is important to you and needs to be provided by the respondents. Remember that each added field obliges the respondent to provide the appropriate data before starting the test.
You can use ready-made basic fields (such as first name and last name), add new ones from the pre-generated pool (e.g., email address, city, postal code) or add custom fields (by selecting Manage custom fields).
