    There should be a “pause” option in every question set.

    During preparation phase, understanding each question, answering, reviewing the explanation, going through the suggested reading normally takes more than 10 mins. At a stretch its difficult to concentrate for more than 5 questions. A pause button will will help to save the current state and resume later in the day or next day. Currently all the progress are lost after closing the window.

      Hello Susanta,

      Thanks for your feedback. You do have the ability to Pause the tests in Timed Mode via the Save&Next button where you can hop out and continue at a later time.

      In both the Review Mode and Section-Based tests, the length of the tests are short (max of 30 questions only) and based on feedback we have gathered, this is the ideal length of questions that a user can do in one sitting, which minimizes the need for a Pause button. Lastly, for the Final Test, we want to really simulate the actual exam environment here where even bathroom breaks are not allowed so we designed it to run continuously during the entire duration of the test without the ability to Pause.

      Nevertheless, we value your suggestion and we will keep that in mind for possible future updates.

      Cheers,
      Tutorials Dojo

    And another one asking for the Pause button in the timed test!
    Yes, I read your reply that the Save&Next button acts like a Pause, but the time keeps running or? In other words I don’t understand (despite the clarifications in this thread and the instructions page before the test) how the Save&Next button can act like a Pause, as I also didn’t see an Exit button. This area does need some simplification I think!

    Furthermore:
    – upon a multi-option answer required (e.g. choose 3), either give a clear warning that not 3 options were selected AND/OR do not proceed when someone clicks the Save&Next button and not the required amount of options was selected (this happened to me several times with Udemy, contrary to Whizlabs which gives a warning and doesn’t let you proceed, which is better I feel)

    – the JSON in the security speciality sampler timed test was not indented, which makes it a pain in the <censored> to read!

    – a feedback button per question (at least in review mode of after a timed test is finished and you review the result) would be beneficial I think

    – consider to move the test progress and time from the top of the page to the (left)side, so that you always have this in view (similar to Whizlabs), reduces scrolling

    – option to reduce the font size, so that more of the question and answers fits on the screen? (less scrolling)

    Cheers,

      Hello Robert,

      Thanks for posting here. Below are my responses to the issues that you raised:

      And another one asking for the Pause button in the timed test!

This area does need some simplification I think!

      >>I can guarantee you that the timer does STOP whenever you hop out of the exam so if there’s 30 minutes remaining if you exit a test in timed mode, you’ll definitely have 30 minutes when you resume the set. We do understand that having a Pause button is more straightforward and ideal and it’s something that we will definitely consider for future improvement.

      Furthermore:

      – upon a multi-option answer required (e.g. choose 3), either give a clear warning that not 3 options were selected AND/OR do not proceed when someone clicks the Save&Next button and not the required amount of options was selected (this happened to me several times with Udemy, contrary to Whizlabs which gives a warning and doesn’t let you proceed, which is better I feel)

      >>I understand that Whizlabs has absolutely fantastic test features but I hope you understand that Whizlabs was founded in 2002 and it took them more than a decade to be where they are right now with top-notch interface and testing features. We have just released the portal last month and it’s simply not possible to be as feature-rich as these other platforms right away. We could argue though that “young” as we may be, our content are always of top-notch quality, even exceeding those that have long existed in the market.

      Nevertheless, we do appreciate the feedback. Our first few months are meant to be a feedback-gathering stage so we can add the more compelling improvements first, based on what’s more important for our users.

      – the JSON in the security speciality sampler timed test was not indented, which makes it a pain in the <censored> to read!

      >> To assist us in checking this, could you kindly send a screenshot to support@tutorialsdojo.com?

      – a feedback button per question (at least in review mode of after a timed test is finished and you review the result) would be beneficial I think

      >>This is once again an advanced feature which hopefully we can incorporate in the future.

      – consider to move the test progress and time from the top of the page to the (left)side, so that you always have this in view (similar to Whizlabs), reduces scrolling

      >>Alright, this is noted. We’ll see if this is a low hanging fruit that can be improved quickly.

      – option to reduce the font size, so that more of the question and answers fits on the screen? (less scrolling)

      >>Unfortunately, we need to cater to those who are visually-impaired and we can’t go any smaller that how it currently is. Nevertheless, thanks for the suggestion! 🙂

    And another thought:

    why not let the user choose if he wants to run a quiz in timed or review mode?
    (personally I rather do timed, as with review mode, I continually fall out of ‘the zone’….)

    and the next button in review mode at the top also? (if I answered correctly, I rather move on right away without scrolling down) -> this would also be a work-around for not falling out of the zone, i.e. just ignore correct/incorrect & explanations, just continue, and review at the end after pressing finish quiz

      You can absolutely choose to load any portion of the test without having to complete them in chronological order. The course is designed to be in “free form” i.e. it’s not mandatory to go through each time mode test first so feel free to jump into any section that you want to tackle.

      As for the Review Mode, we highly recommend going through the explanations as you answer each question. It is a crucial part of that training mode and skipping the explanations part would make it almost just like the time mode except that you know right away whether you were right or wrong.

    Hi I would like to 2nd or 3rd Susanta’s orignal point about the need to be able to pause / save when even the doing a 30 question review mode test, like what can be done in other tests . I value that this mode lets you review your great explanations after each and every question!. But that means we can often spend 10 mins per question. I also want the system to record my score at the end of the random 30 so I can track my progress to see over time if I am improving and where my weak areas are. Unless I complete the full 30 questions in one session I don’t get this informaton saved. Having a way to save or pause during these tests would be of great benefit. Consider 30 x 10 mins = 5hrs .. thats a long time. Even 30 x 5mins is 2.5 hrs.

    Apart from that i think the content you have put together is awesome and this is better than Udemys engine by far.

    Thanks

      Hello Nigel,

      We appreciate your feedback/suggestions here!

      These things will require customization and make take a lot of time, nevertheless, we’ll look into it in the near future.

      Thank you so much for sharing wonderful ideas. 🙂

    Coming back to the lacking pause button 🙂
    What is the preferred way to temporarily exit/hop out of an ongoing test? (and stop the time)
    As there’s also no exit button…there are only the Previous/Next (< | >) icons in the top right, which move to the previous or next quiz (probably not what you want either).
    Other options I can think of are close the browser tab, close the browser, log out, shutdown your pc…

      Hello Robert,

      Thank you for your inquiry. You are right, there is currently no pause button yet in the Timed Mode. Technically, once you hit the Save & Next button, all previously answered questions are recorded and saved which means you can jump into any portion of the site or exit the portal without losing your progress.

      When you are ready to continue, you can just load the course again in My Courses, select the set you want to continue then click the Resume Quiz button.

      Hope this helps 🙂

      Cheers,

      Joy @ Tutorials Dojo

    Is there a total Table Of Contents of a course? I didn’t find that, seems you can only sequentially go through all the lessons, and no option to jump right away into a certain section. Or did I miss that somewhere?
    Seems the structure is
    – Timed mode
    – Review mode
    – Section based
    – Final test

      If you go to the course page for the course you subscribed to and click “Expand All” right next to COURSE CONTENT, it shows everything in the course including the components you have completed and not completed. I would think that qualifies for a table of content.

    Two things that I missed right away:

    1. Ability to pause a timed exam.

    2. Ability to go back and review the answers that I submitted for a previous exam. I had to retake an entire exam twice to try to figure out what areas I wanted to review.

      Thanks for the suggestion, Jason. Much appreciated. We are always improving our portal in order to serve you better.

      For your 2nd point, you can actually view the details of your previous exam attempts by clicking the Statistics icon on your My Dashboard page.

    It would be nice to see which questions I got right and wrong in the graph at the top. It shows the 65 questions and whether I marked them for review. From a learning perspective it would be great to see which questions I got wrong marked in red and the ones I got right with the green dots.

      Thanks for the feedback @jason-sethi! In the Review page of the Quiz, there is actually a dropdown filter to show your correct or incorrect answers only.

      Nonetheless, we’ll look for ways to further improve the Review page.

    A few suggestions on a great product: I’ve been using review mode a lot to prepare for the exam. I would like to see the actual (original) question number displayed with the statistics. The way I study is to take the Review Exams and mark for review any question that I’m not 100% confident about. That way, I know I will need to go back later and study that material more (even if I get the correct answer, I know that I need to study that subject further). When I click Quiz Summary, it shows me a list of any questions flagged for review. But once I click Finish Quiz, that information is lost. Even if I jot down the question numbers (e.g., 7, 15, 24, 30), there is nothing on the Statistics report for that quiz which shows me the original question number when the quiz was taken. It shows a relative number for each category (cost, performance, resiliance, security) but not the absolute question number (1-30). So ideally, I would like the Statistics Report to show whether the question was flagged for review, and/or the absolute question number when the test was taken.

    This is not a major complaint or deal breaker. I believe you have done a great job with the UI and content. I’m sure that these tests will prepare me for the exam. I’m just asking for one or two more fields on the Statistics Report for those of us who study like I do… an initial review to gauge our readiness, and then a deep-dive into areas that need further work.

    And oftentimes I have started the 30-question review, get interrupted and go to resume it later, only to find that my session timed out and my answers were lost, requiring me to restart the quiz. So I like the idea that someone else had about a Coffee Break mode where the simulator generates maybe 5 random questions. As you know, there are many times during the day where we may find ourselves with just a few minutes to spare: Waiting for a program to build, waiting for class to start, waiting for a train to arrive, etc. Having a short simulation mode would be great for these times; when you don’t have the time to do a timed test or 30-question review. You would not even have to save the results or statistics for this Coffee Break mode, IMO. It’s just a way to efficiently use your spare time to stay sharp.

    Thanks again for your products. Keep up the great work.

    I like the website, however, I feel like removing the inside sidebar would make it more simpler to use and appearance-wise.

    Hi,

    Explanation of different options is really helpful and nice website design.

    It will help to have Quiz mode for questions answered Incorrectly on previous attempts only. Timing can be proportional to number of questions out of total. Else retaking Quiz goes through all questions again, and when get closer to Exam, it will help focus on questions which need more attention.

    Thanks

    While reviewing my answers – it will be very valuable if you can create an option to display only the “Flagged” in addition to “All”, “Correct” and “Incorrect” answers.

    In am re-purposing “Flag for review” to tag the responses I am not 100% confident.

    This is also helping me identify where I am confidently wrong.

    With this added option I can easily get to the explanations which I am not confident with answering. This will help in revising for the exam as well.

      Hello Ramji,

      Thanks for the message. We are happy to let you know that a new feature has been added in the Tutorials Dojo portal. When viewing the results of your previous attempts, you can now filter questions that you have marked/flagged for review while answering the practice tests, a feature that was previously not available.

      This feature allows you to summarize and go back to questions that you were unsure of while answering the practice tests, providing you with a better learning experience to help you pass your certification exam.

      All previous attempts can be reviewed by clicking the course from “My Courses”.

      Click “My Courses” at the top menu then select the specific course where you’d like to view your previous attempts.

      Once you’ve clicked the course, you’ll see your course progress by clicking the dropdown arrow as per this screenshot.

      Click the Statistics button to view your detailed results.

      In the Statistics dashboard, you can filter your results by category and by correct/skipped/incorrect answers/marked for review.

      Detailed explanations of why the options are correct/incorrect are found at the bottom of each question.

      Alternatively, your course progress and all previous attempts are also recorded in My Dashboard. You may also refer to this link.

      Rest assured that the Tutorials Dojo team will do our best to keep on improving the UI of the portal and adding more valuable features

      Cheers,
