Create and Edit Tests
Gauge is a robust testing platform that gives you everything you need to create, edit, and customize the perfect tests for your users.
To begin creating a new test, start by choosing from one of three test types which you can customize to suit your unique needs.
A Basic Test is the simplest type to get started with. Add questions and answers one at a time using our test builder and configure them to meet your assessment requirements.
Basic Tests are great for light-weight testing needs, practice tests, or quizzes.
Test With Question Banks
Tests With Question Banks are our most popular test type. These tests are made up of question banks which are can be configured independently or at the test level.
Becuase question banks are independent of any one test, they can be reused across an unlimited number of tests you create.
Test With Sections
For advanced assessment needs, we created Tests With Sections. Tests With Sections utilize reusable question banks but are broken up into individual sections, often by subject matter, and taken in sequence.
Tests With Sections are excellent for high-stakes testing.
Choose from six different question and answer types and combine them in any way you can imagine to build the test that is right for you.

Content Managers are members of your team who are responsible for developing, editing and approving content, tests and programs within the Gauge platform.
User Managers are those within your organization whose job it is to add, remove, and manage users in Gauge. User Managers are also charged with managing user groups and often tracking individual or group progress over time.
Reporting Managers are responsible for building, running, and reviewing reports in Gauge to track everything from organization-wide progress to performance by user group.

Users are the people within your organization that are regularly being trained, tested, and certified for their respective positions or job functions.
There are four ways to add users in Gauge:
