  • Updated

Quizzes allow you to evaluate your learners or alternate the rhythm of activities in a course.

 

 


Create a question

 

To create a question:

  1. In the course editor, click the ? icon in the activities menu
  2. Select the desired question format or import an existing question

🤓 Imported questions can only be edited by their author. Also, edits made on imported questions will impact the original version. If you didn't create the original question and wish to edit it, you can make a copy.

 

 

💡 By default, the question is visible in the menu on the left. To prevent Learners from seeing the question on the left, you can edit the Additional Information by clicking the icon above the question. 

 

  


Display a random selection of questions

 

To display a random set of questions:

  1. In the course editing mode, click General Settings
  2. In the Random set questions section, click Activate

 

💡 All questions will be visible by default. Click on How many questions should be picked > All and choose the number of questions to be displayed.

 

🤓 When enabling random questions, they will be shown at the end of the course. This ensures Learners will have gone through all the course material to answer any question.
