Diagnostic online tests have a detailed ''Results Page'' that provides extensive feedback to the candidates on all incorrectly answered questions, including a suggested solution for each, which significantly enhances the learning effect of these tests.
It is commonly accepted that knowledge and skills are best measured in an environment that is as near as possible to real-life. These tests allow candidates to carry out activities within the live application itself and the system then automatically judges whether they have achieved the required outcome.
