Who can see my information?
Well, it depends on you. In your profile you can set a "privacy level" to various information. This way you can choose if your classmates can see your information, if other students can also see them or if it's totally public. If no information is public in your profile, then it will never appear on homepage even if you are the most popular teacher...

What are public exams?
When a teacher creates an exam, (s)he can set it as "Public" or not. If this exam is public, everyone can search it from homepage, and it can also be displayed in the top exams blocks on the homepage. This way, anybody can read them. In addition, other teachers can add these public exams to their own exam in order to assign them to their own students. And you can take these exams at any time and get immediate result: they will be auto-corrected (Except Essay questions).

How do I take an Exam?

- You take a public exam: it will be searchable and maybe displayed in ExamGeneral.com homepage. You can take it at any time clicking the "take this exam" button. This exam will be auto-corrected. If you're logged as a student, the result will be store in your dashboard.
- Someone gave you a secret URL: just enter this URL in your web-browser and take the exam. The exam will be auto-corrected (except essay questions).A secret URL is associated to any of your exams. Just share it to people you want to take it. If you're logged as a student, the result will be store in your dashboard.
