Setting Up a Quiz

To create a quiz using the new Quiz Builder experience:

  1. On the navbar, click Quizzes.
  2. On the Manage Quizzes page, click New Quiz.
  3. In the General area, fill in your quiz details, including giving your quiz a name.
  4. In the Quiz Questions area, click Add/Edit Questions.
  5. Click the Add drop-down button and do any of the following:
    • Select New Question and select the type of question you want to add.
      • Enter the question text and fill out other appropriate fields. Use the Options menu to set advance criteria.
      • Click Save.
      • Add more questions and observe that you can use the handlers to drag and re-order the questions.
    • Select Section.
      • Enter the section title and section text and select the respective check boxes if you want to hide the section tile and/or section text from learners.
      • To shuffle the order of questions within a specific section, select the Shuffle questions in this section check box.
      • On the main Quiz Builder page, use the Add or Import button to create or import questions for use within the section. Note that questions are added to the bottom of the list at the root level. Use the handles beside the question name to drag questions to the appropriate place within the section.
    • Select Question Pool.
      • Enter a Question Pool Title.
      • Specify the number of questions from the pool that you want to appear to learners and how many points learners will receive for each question they answer correctly. The appropriate number of questions will be chosen randomly for each quiz attempt.
      • Click Browse Question Library, select the check boxes of the questions you want to add to the question pool, and click Add.
      • Click Save.
  6. If you want to align the selected questions to learning outcomes, for each question, click More Actions > Align to Standards. Then, choose the outcomes you want to align and click Add. Note that any alignments appear in all quizzes where the question appears within the same course offering.
  7. When you are done adding and reordering questions in the Quiz Builder interface, click Back to Settings for your quiz.
  8. In the Properties tab on the Edit quiz page, in the Quiz Questions area, do any of the following:
    • Specify the number of Questions per page.
    • Select the Prevent moving backwards through pages check box.
    • Select the Shuffle order of questions at the quiz level check box. To discourage cheating in quizzes, you can shuffle the order of all questions in quizzes or specific groups of questions (sections) in quizzes. For example, you could shuffle questions 1-10 in a quiz, or shuffle questions 3-10 (grouping those questions into a section) and retain the order of questions 1-2 at the start of the quiz. When a quiz contains shuffled questions, each learner receives a quiz with a unique question order.
      Note: Shuffling the order of questions at the quiz level also shuffles the order of all sections in the quiz.

    • Select the Allow hints check box.
    • Select the Disable right click check box.
    • Select the Disable instant messages and alerts check box.
    • In the Notification Email field, enter an email where notifications will be sent.
  10. Once you’ve created a basic quiz, you can further customize it by adding restrictions, adding assessments, associating learning objectives, customizing the submission view, and adding reports.
  11. On the Restrictions tab, deselect the Hide from users check box when you are ready to release the Quiz.
  12. Click Save.
