LAAS Author Engine Help : Create Test Mod

Author Engine provides a option to create Test Modules or sub tests from the main question database. This option is helpful to create multiple question sets from master question database.

For example Author has populated a "Maths" question database with 500 questions. Using this feature author can create subtests with different set of questions from the main database. say "Maths SET 1" is created with 50 questions and is assigned to section A students, "Maths SET 2" is created with another 50 questions and is assigned to section B students.
