A quiz is not only helpful to gage a learner’s comprehension, but it’s also a great learning tool! Studying for a quiz requires the learner to retrieve information - or “bring to mind” - previously acquired information. It also provides feedback to the course creators, and even improves study habits for the learners moving forward. We’ll show you how to utilize this excellent tool in your course.

Add a Quiz

  1. If you’re not already in your course, click on Learning > Manager.

2. In the Courses list tab search for your course, or click on your course card. You

may even create a new course from here if you’d like.

3. Scroll down to the Activities section and enter a name for the enrichment activity.

4. Click the Create Activity button.

5. In the Set Content Type drop-down next to your new activity, choose Quiz.

6. Hover your mouse over your new activity and click the edit icon to access the

Quiz page.

Adding Questions

When you land on your Quiz Page, you’ll see a box where you can enter a question. You’ll also notice the settings button.

  1. Click Settings to adjust your preferences.

Note: This is where you’ll be able to determine the percentage needed to pass the quiz (which shows up on the top of the Quiz page), whether or not you will allow a retry, how many retry attempts are permitted, and what the retry delay will be in minutes (if applicable).

2. Click Save to return to the Quiz Page and start adding Questions.

3. Develop your question list. Enter your question text in the box that says Enter

Question.

4. Hover over your question to see the edit icon. Click the icon.

An edit panel will appear. This same panel will appear for Video and Enrichment activities as well. You may edit your question in the edit panel.

Note: The question may contain up to 2,000 characters. Break lines will also format for the learner if you choose to use them.

5. Choose the Question Type.

There are three options for the Question Type:

  • Unique choice - the learner can only choose one correct answer.

  • Multiple answers - out of 10 possible answers, the learner would need to choose at least two answers.

  • Short Answer - the learner would need to type out an answer in one or more sentences.

6. Add the answers to the question. Begin by entering text for Answer option 1, and

then click the + Add Answer Option link to add another answer option until you

cover all the options that you want for this question.

Note: Answers may contain up to 280 characters. For each answer option that is correct, click the small square button on the left to turn it green (this is a circle for Unique Choice). If you choose Short Answer, you will need to type in the exact word or phrase the learner needs to respond with.

7. Choose the Feedback Type.

There are several options for Feedback Type:

  • All Answers - provide feedback after the learner answers a question correctly.

  • Correct/Incorrect answers - give a message to the learner for correct AND incorrect responses.

  • Per option - Give custom messages for each of the options that the learner can choose. The message that you provide for each option will appear when the user clicks on that option.

E.g. Question: What are Hard Skills?

(Incorrect) answer: Skills formed in cement!

Feedback: Oh, that’s not quite right! Try again, and not so literal next time.

7. Add your Feedback.

  • For All Answers: Enter the text you’d like to give to your learners for the correct answers.

  • For Correct/Incorrect Answers: Enter the text you’d like to give to your learners for BOTH Correct AND Incorrect answers.

  • Add a custom text for each option the learner may choose.

8. Click Save.
