Piqosity uses the same question interface for both quizzes and tests. Understanding each feature will help you get the most out of your prep with Piqosity.

  1. The question timer left of the mark button counts up to tell you how long you've spent on that particular question.
  2. The "Mark" button is helpful if you're unsure of your answer and want to come back to the question later if time remains. Clicking on the button turns the question number red in the window footer.
  3. The "eliminate" buttons can be used to "cross out" answer choices just as you would on a paper test.
  4. To select an answer simply click anywhere on the answer choice itself. You'll know that the answer is selected when it stays dark grey. Once you've selected an answer, Piqosity will automatically save your selection and you can move on.
  5. The whiteboard can be used to show your work. Piqosity will automatically save any work that you leave on the whiteboard so that you can see it when you review the graded quiz or exam.
  6. The section timer in the footer counts down to tell you how much time remains in this part of the test. You can adjust how much time you're given (i.e. standard, 1.5x, 2x) in "timer settings."
  7. The green <> arrows in boxes only move the pagination buttons 10 questions at a time; this is helpful to move quickly between the test if, for example, you're looking for marked or unanswered questions. You can click on any number to go directly to that question.
  8. The question number color coding in the window footer of the pages indicate different things:
    1. Dark gray means the you've selected an answer
    2. Red means that you've marked the question to come back to
    3. Yellow means that's the start of a new test section
    4. Green means that the question is unanswered
  9. The < button in the circle moves the question view back by one question
  10. The pause button stops the quiz/test and all timers; click it again to resume the timer.
  11. The next button moves the question view forward by one question. This button changes to a red submit button when you've reached the last question of the test.

Once you've clicked submit on your quiz or test don't forget to utilize Piqosity's Review page and answer explanations to help your understanding.
