Structure

Testy is centered around the concept of tests and students.

Each test generally has multiple questions, and is assigned to one student. Tests are based on Test Templates. Before you can assign a test to a student, you need to create a template; naming it and assigning / creating questions for it as needed.

Once both test templates and students are created, you create tests based on a test template, and associate tests with specific student accounts.
