Creating quizzes

Creating quizzes

Quizzes are a great way to evaluate the knowledge of your learners. Create quizzes to keep track of how well your learners are retaining the information you are teaching them. They help both the authors and learners to check the learners' understanding of the course material and their progress.

Creating a new quiz 

The quiz builder helps you create interactive quizzes with a range of content types like videos, images, tables, code snippets, etc. You can create the following questions in Learn:
  1. Single choice questions can be used when there is only one right answer to your question. You can use this question type for true or false questions.
  2. Multiple choice questions can be used when there is more than one response to a question. For the question to be marked correct, learners must mark all the right answers. 
  3. Fill-in-the-blanks can be used when you want your learners to complete a part of a phrase or a paragraph. Learners will have to type their answers manually, unlike the first two question types. The typed answers are then automatically graded by the system.
  4. Descriptive questions are paragraph or essay type questions where your learners have to type in the answers in their own words. These answers have to be evaluated and graded manually.
Descriptive questions is available  only in our Professional plan.                                                                                                                               
To create a quiz:
  1. Navigate to the course, then go to the Lessons tab.
  2. Click the Add Content button on the lesson, then click Quiz.
  3. Click the Add a Question button, then select a question type.
  4. Enter the question, the choices and give the correct answer for the question.
  5. To give a description for the question, click the Add question description icon, then enter the description.
  6. To set a score for the question, give the score in the Question Score input box.
  7. To give an overview for the quiz, click Quiz Overview in the left pane, then enter the quiz overview.
  8. To delete a question, click the Delete icon () on the question in the left pane.
  9. To rearrange the questions, drag and drop the questions in the left pane.

To create a fill in the blank question, you will have to enclose the answers to your fill-in-the-blank questions within square brackets ([ ]). The enclosed answers will only be visible to the author and will appear as blank spaces to learners. To add multiple blanks within the same phrase, you can use comma separation between blanks.

Adding questions from a question bank 

While creating your quiz, you can choose to add questions in one of the following ways from a question bank:
Randomize questions: Set the number of questions to be picked at random from the topics in a question bank. This ensures that no two learners are asked the same set of questions in a quiz.

Adding custom feedback

Add custom feedback at the end of each question in a quiz to display different feedback depending on the answers of the learners. For example, if someone gets a question right, you can tell them “Good job.” If they get it wrong, you can say "Better luck next time" or give the right answer.

To add custom feedback:
  1. Navigate to the quiz editing screen, then go to the question you want to add custom feedback for.
  2. Enable the Custom feedback button.
  3. Select one from the following feedback types, then enter the feedback:
  4. Any response: Set the same feedback for the question irrespective of the answer given by the learners.
  5. Correct/Incorrect: Set different feedback based on the correct and incorrect answer.
  6. Option-based: Set different feedback for each option in a question.
