During the 2017-2018 school year, we are working hard to bring our customers some pretty serious improvements to our test-authoring experience!
This is a big project, so it will take us a while to get it fully-built. In the meantime, we have come up with a way to share with our customers our progress and give folks a chance to play with the new features as we develop them!
Watch the Nov 15th webinar about the new test authoring update.
From now until the completion of all the project, customers can go to AwareTest.schoolobjects.com and login using demo account usernames to access tests with the latest version of our in-development features for test authoring.

We will be updating this page as more components are added.
|New Test Authoring Features to Try|
|Check out the information breakdown on the left side of the test.||
Learning Standard breakdown
Item type counts
|Try editing the General Information, also on the left side of the test.||No more tabs! Authors can edit the general info in one simple place. (Note: courses can not yet be modified in the new interface, so we've added a few to the demo tests)|
|Move some of the items around.||You have two options here: click the up and down arrows to bump items one place at a time OR drag and drop them to new locations! (Note: drag and drop does not yet save the new location, but try it anyway to get a feel for it)|
|Open some of the items for editing.||Click "Edit" and see what you can do!|
|New Features Added After the Webinar|
|More item formatting!||
When you open an item to edit, check out some of the font options.
You can also indent/outdent text.
|Change the test's state.||You have Pending, Active, and Archived options. (Please note, in this demo server the tests do not refresh quickly when you change the state, so it might not appear like you have made any changes when you toggle among these options. Please be patient; these work, and the editable features of items will respect the test's state like they should once the state of the test shows that it has changed.)|
|Add an item above or below an existing item!||Click one of those + symbols. You'll get three options (only one works for now, but with a little imagination I bet you can figure out the other two). Add a new item, select the item type, pick its complexity if you want, and save your work. One cool new feature for this is that you can change the item type while making a new one in case you make a mistake.|
|Toggle between Question View and Key View.||Key View doesn't have anything yet, but this is where test authors will get to quickly edit many parts of many items all at once, including changing standards and item weight!|
