How do Actions differ for Practice Questions and Test Questions?

In Claro, there are two categories for Questions: Practice Questions and Test Questions.

Practice Questions can be used at key points throughout your course to help your learners gauge their understanding of newly learned content. Since these questions are for practice purposes only, they are not graded and may be set to accept multiple attempts.

Test Questions are presented at the end of a course module and are intended to measure the learner's understanding of the learning material. Unlike Practice Questions, Test Questions must be attached to the Learning Objects containing the related content pages—they cannot be placed in an empty Learning Object. Also, since Test Questions are scored, only one question attempt is permitted per test. Test Question details are sent via SCORM/AICC/xAPI(Tin Can) to the LMS/LRS.

Due to these differences, there are some aspect of Actions that can be performed in Practice Questions, but not in Test Questions. The table below details whether or not a given Function or Trigger is available for Practice and Test Questions.
