This is covered in the Help file within the Examiner module, but we repeat here in a bit more detail.

For instructors, the task might be to prepare and save tests you want to use more than once.

Step 1. Open Examiner. it will default to a blank file. Note the top caption bar reads Untitled--Starpath Examiner

Step 2. Open the Setup window and choose the book of choice, and be sure there is a check mark in all boxes under Questions to Display.

Step 3. Say OK and then find the first question you want to save into your test.

Step 4. Check it Tag 1, then answer it with any answer, and press Commit, then find next question you want and repeat.

Step 5. From the menu bar choose File/Save as and give it a name.

=======

To then use this test, open Examiner, from menubar choose Open and find the file you saved (it will also be in the most recently used list). When it opens, check the title bar again to show that the right one is loaded.

then go to Setup window and in the Set up window under Questions to Display, put a check in Missed, Correct, and Tag 1.

Then the user will be presented with just the questions you chose to show.

Note, sometimes, the first question selected does not show up. If this happens, on the next attempt, just add the first question twice. We do not know what causes this; it does not happen very often.

There is also further discussion of using tagged questions in the NavRules Plus section, since that program uses the same Examiner Module.
