Yes! Instructors have the option of turning their online tests into Offline tests. These offline tests can be printed and distributed to your students to take. In addition, your Review Center will still work as usual even if your test is in Offline mode. To access Offline Tests, create your test as normal or begin to edit an existing test. Navigate to the Settings tab and click the toggle to the right of Convert to offline test.

You will be able to print up to 5 Test Versions by clicking the arrow in the box under Convert to offline test. Test versions will show the same questions in a different order. Additionally, you will still have the option to shuffle your question order. Once you’re happy with your offline test settings, click Done at the top of the page. 

In your Course Outline, you’ll see that Offline Tests are clearly specified with a label to the left of the test title.

To print the test from your course outline, click Manage and then click on the three dots to the right of your offline test. Click View and Print.

On the next page, select which version of the test you’d like to print. If you chose to have one version of the test, you will only see one test version. 

Note: you will not be able to access the same versions of these tests again after closing this print window. We recommend downloading and saving a version when you first access it.

On the next page, wait for the Print Test and Answer Key button to turn from grey to teal - teal means it’s ready! Click the button to print. As mentioned, there will be an answer key included. 

Note: Offline tests do not import from alta in your common cartridge upload with a Learning Management System (LMS) integration. If you'd like to post grades to your offline test in your LMS gradebook, you must create a new, separate grade item/ grade column in your gradebook and manually add the offline test grades.
