Importing Questions to Create a Quiz
Choose the LaunchPad unit in which you want to create a quiz (in this case, Unit 4). Click "Add to this unit" and then "Create new" from the drop-down menu.
Title your quiz, and add a subtitle or directions as needed. Select "Save." You'll see a green checkmark letting you know your quiz has been saved.
he window that appears gives directions on how questions should be formatted in order for them to be properly uploaded. NOTE: questions cannot be imported by uploading a file.
For a multiple choice question, each question should start with “1” and be successively numbered. Each answer choice should occupy its own line. The first answer choice should be “A.” and each successive choice should start with the next letter followed by a period. The correct answer choice should have an asterisk (*) before the letter. If you wish to view a sample multiple choice question, click “+ Sample questions.” NOTE: Fill in the blank questions can be imported as well. A sample fill in the blank question is also provided when you click “+ Sample questions.” Just click the “Fill in the blank” button (second screenshot below).
Once you have made sure your questions (in this case, multiple choice) are in the proper format, paste them into the text box. It should look like the example given below. When you are ready, click “Import questions.”
When you are finished importing your questions, assign your quiz and adjust any settings by using the “Assignment” and “Settings” tabs on the toolbar at the top of the screen.
When you are done changing any settings, click “Done Editing.” Click “Home” to return to your home page.
