Show Feedback

Toggle Show/Hide Feedback to show or hide feedback given to students when they submit an answer.

 

Import Questions

Import Questions allows you to add your own multiple choice questions to the quiz using Respondus format.

This is a useful tool if you have a large number of multiple choice questions you want to add from another document. Just copy and paste the questions into the text box.

If your quiz is longer than 30 questions, we recommend that you import a maximum of 30 at a time.

Note: Quizzes and/or questions cannot be imported by uploading a file.

Question Pools

Creating a question pool allows you to randomize questions on each student's quiz.

To add questions to a pool, return to the Search for Quiz Questions tab, check the desired questions, and click Add Checked To >>, then select your question pool.

 

Settings

From here you can:

  1. Edit the number of attempts
  2. Set a time limit
  3. Control question delivery
  4. Allow or disallow students to save and continue their work
  5. Choose to scramble the order of questions and/or answer choices
  6. Select your desired option to display quiz answers and feedback
  7. Show/hide quiz from students

If you make changes, click Save when you're done.

Note: If you set a time limit and tick "Allow save and continue," the quiz timer will pause when students save their work. When they return, the timer will resume. If your goal is for students to take a quiz in one sitting for a set amount of time, enter the time limit and untick "Allow save and continue."
