Creating a Quiz with One Question Pool
Creating a question pool allows you to create a group of questions from which one or more (depending on the setting) is chosen at random for students.
Let’s assume you want to create a quiz for the Chapter 4 LaunchPad unit that consists of both standard questions and one question pool. In the Chapter 4 unit, first click “Add to this Unit” and then “Create new.”
Provide a title for your quiz (in this case, “Quiz with 1 Pool”) and click the “Save” button.
To begin adding questions to your quiz, click the “Questions” button at the top of your screen.
On the page that appears, there will be a list of chapters for which you can view publisher supplied questions. Here we have selected “Chapter 4."
Select the bank from which you’d like to pull questions from to create your quiz (in this case, “Study Guide”).
When the Study Guide questions appear, select the questions you would like to become part of your pool.
Give the pool a title (in this case, “Pool #1”), and provide the number of questions you would like pulled from the pool (in this case, 5 questions). Click the “Save” button.
You can see that your pool now contains the questions you’ve selected from the Study Guide (in this case, 10 questions). If you’d like to hide the questions, simply click the “Hide questions” button.
Now that you’ve created your pool of 10 questions (in which 5 will be pulled), you can select the rest of the questions from the Study Guide that you’d like to be part of your quiz (in this case, 5 more questions). Since these questions are NOT being added to the pool, once you’ve selected the questions, just click the “Add” button.
You can see that your quiz now consists of the 10 questions in your pool as well as 5 additional questions.
Your quiz is finished. You can now choose to go back to the home page or assign your quiz (of course, you can also go back to the home page and assign your quiz from the Chapter 4 LP unit as well).
