Note: Strictly speaking, the End Attempt interaction is not an interaction, but is implemented as such for the test-taker to be able to end his/her attempt at an item
1. Including End Attempt in your test Item.
The End attempt option can be added to a test item by means of an inline interaction inserted into a text block.
After you have created a new Item, a text block is inserted by dragging the Block interaction (represented by a letter A icon) from the Inline Interactions library below Common Interactions on the left, onto the blank Item and dropping it onto the canvas. This creates a field (containing a sample text).
To insert the End Attempt button, drag the End Attempt icon (represented by the word END and a finish flag) from the Inline Interactions library below Common Interactions on the left, onto the text field and drop it onto the canvas.
A blue button will appear in the text box, reading End Attempt.
A test-taker can click on this button during a test to indicate that he/she wants to give up on that particular item. The test normally then moves on to the next item.
