Format multiple choice and open-ended questions in screening assessments

Guide on formatting custom questions

There are multiple ways to customize your multiple choice and open-ended questions, as well as their orientation in the assessment.

Set order of sections

You can set the order in which the candidate will see the question types within the assessment by going to Edit > Settings > Section ordering. This is important if your assessment is timed and you want to ensure that candidates attempt the most important sections first. However, candidates can skip sections if they choose.

  • Add headers
  • Bold, italicize, underline text
  • Add images
  • Highlight snippets of code (one code snippet per question)
