CREATING QUIZZES

Overview

The Quizzes tool is used to create, categorise, store, manage, publish and grade questions you set for your students to respond to, either as reinforcement of learning or as formal assessment tasks.

Step 1: Accessing the quiz tool
  1. Click on Assessments in the navigation bar on the unit homepage and select the Quizzes link.
  2. Click on the New Quiz button.

 

Step 2: Properties tab
  • Enter a Name for the quiz.
  • Select a Category or create a new category if you wish.
  • You have the options to set the number of questions to display per page and whether you allow students to re-visit the questions.
  • Click on Add/Edit Questions.
  • If you’ve already created your questions in the Questions Library:
    1. Click Import then select Browse Question Library.
    2. Browse through the Sections and questions, using the check boxes to select the questions for the quiz.
    3. Click Add.
    4. When you have completed adding all the questions, click Back to Settings.
  • If you have not created your questions:
    1. Click on Add > New Question
    2. Select the type of question from the list
    3. Compose the quiz questions and answers
    4. Click on the drop down arrow next to Save and select Save and New to compose another question.
    5. Once you have created all necessary quiz questions, select Save.
    6. Click Back to Settings.
  • Complete Description/Introduction and Page Header/Footer as required.
  • Click Expand Optional Advanced Properties, you will see additional settings:
    a. Click on Allow hints to enable question hints. Specific hints must be set up within each question.
    b. Disable right click (or control-click on a Mac) as this prohibits users from printing quiz questions by right-clicking on a question when taking a quiz. Note: This option is not compatible with Macs when using Internet Explorer or Safari.
    c. 'If you turn on this option, users cannot access the Email tool, Instant Messages tool
    d. Enter your email address in the Notification Email field if you would like to be notified when a student submits a quiz for marking.
  • Click Save and Close.
Step 3: Restrictions tab
  1. To enable students to see the quiz, untick Hide from Users.
  2. If applicable, select Has Due Date and enter a date and time.
  3. In the Availability section, you can set the quiz start and end dates. Check Has Start Date and enter the start date for the Quiz. If you do not want your quiz to have a specific start date, do not check Has Start Date.
  4. If applicable, check Has End Date and choose an End Date. If you do not want your quiz to have a specific end date, do not check Has End Date.
    Note: Be aware that if you set a quiz to be available until a specific time of day, a student can log in at any period before that time and have the full time allotted to take the quiz. For example if the quiz is set to be available until midnight and students have 30 minutes to complete the quiz, a student who logs in at 11.59 pm will have 30 minutes to take the quiz and will be allowed to submit when the 30 minute period expires.
  5. Create and Attach release conditions. See Release Conditions for more info.
  6. You can specify whether users have a limited or unlimited amount of time to complete the quiz. One minute per Multiple Choice Question is recommended unless questions require a demanding level of reading or computation.
    a. Recommended Time Limit: Students have unlimited time to complete the quiz. The Quiz Details page will display a recommended length of time for completing the quiz. Select the Show clock check box if you want users to see a clock while taking the quiz to help them monitor the time.
    b. Enforced Time Limit: Students have a set amount of time to complete the quiz. The Quiz Details page will display the time limit for the quiz. A clock displays to students taking the quiz so they can monitor how much time remains. The clock flashes briefly 10 minutes before the time expires if the quiz time limit was set to one hour or more or 5 minutes before the time expires if the quiz time limit was set to less than one hour. The clock flashes again at 1 minute remaining, regardless of the initial quick time limit.
    1. When enforcing a time limit, you can define specific outcomes for late submissions by using Grace Period. Grace Period provides students with a small window of time after their time limit expires to complete the quiz before the submission flags itself as late. If this grace period as succeeded, the quiz submission will be flagged as late, and you can choose the below options:
      • Allow the student to continue working
      • Prevent the student from making further changes
      • Allow the student to continue working, but score their attempt as 0 after the extended deadline
  7. If you wish to provide an extended grace period, a unique start and end date, time limit to students that have special access, click on Add Users to Special Access.
  8. Check the boxes beside any of the special access types, and complete the appropriate fields. You can specify a different number of quiz attempts allowed for individual student.
  9. Check the boxes beside the students to whom you want to provide special access.
  10. Click Add Special Access.
    Note: When the Auto-Submit Attempt option is active, any questions that have not been saved before the time limit has expired, even if they have been answered, will not be submitted. As students move from page to page on a Quiz the system auto saves their answers. It is thus a good idea not to set your quiz to have too many questions per page; five or less is recommended.
  11. Click on Save.
Step 4: Assessment Tab

Here you can specify attempts and overall grade calculation:

  1. Select the box next to Automatic Grade to allow the quiz attempt grade to be seen immediately after the user has completed and submitted the quiz. The displayed score is limited by what the system can auto-grade.
  2. Select a Grade Item from the drop-down list, or select "Add Grade Item"
    Note: If you want the quiz to be graded, you must create a grade item and link the quiz to it.
    • If you are adding a grade item, enter a name for the grade item.
    • Enter maximum points available for the grade item, any additional options required, and the Grade Scheme.
    • If you do not wish your students to see their grade once they have taken a quiz, click the option of Hide from Users.
  3. Under the Student View Preview, select how you would like your students to view their grade once released.
  4. Once a quiz is linked to a grade item you have the option of having attempt scores automatically exported to the grade book by placing a checkmark beside the option allow automatic export to Grades.
    Note: This setting must be turned on for grades to be automatically sent to the Grades and for the default submission view to be released to users when they complete an attempt.
    If you want to delay releasing the quiz grades until you have completed the manual grading or until all students have submitted the quiz, do NOT tick this option until you have completed the grading or are ready to release the grades to all students. You can see the quiz results for the class using the Quiz Stats option.
  5. Choose the number of attempts allowed from the dropdown list.
  6. Choose which attempt will be included in the grade calculation from the Overall Grade Calculation dropdown list. The attempt calculated can be the highest, lowest, average, first, or last.
  7. If you choose to allow more than one attempt but not unlimited attempts, you have the option of setting Advanced Attempt Conditions after clicking on Save Quiz. Use the advanced attempt conditions to restrict the student from access to further attempts until they have achieved a specified score on the previous attempt.
  8. Click Save.

Note: Double-check all the settings and questions before you release the quiz to students.

Step 5: Submission views tab

The default view is for students to not see anything other than their score after they have taken a quiz. Use the options on the Submission Views tab to give feedback to users after they submit a quiz attempt. To change those default settings:

  1. The details of the default submission view are displayed.
  2. To change the default view, click the Default View link.
  3. Type a Message to display to students once they have submitted a quiz.
  4. Use the Show Questions options to determine which elements of answered questions students see. Click Yes to show questions to students and choose an option from the Show Questions list.
  5. Click Save.

Note: You can also create additional views that are available at the date and time you set by clicking Add Additional View.

Self-Assessments

Self assessments allow you to create non-assessable quizzes with automated feedback which students can access in order to reinforce their learning. Note: these are not supported by mobile.

The steps to creating self assessments are very similar to create quizzes.

  1. Click on Setup from the navigation bar.
  2. Under Assessment, click on Self Assessments.
  3. Refer to Question Library to create all self assessment questions. Using this method enables you to reuse questions in quizzes, surveys as well as self assessments. All points values are removed when importing questions from the Question Library to self assessments. Since self assessments are not graded and have no points value, ensure that you use feedback comments to provide feedback for each answer choice within the question.
  4. Refer to Quizzes to create self assessments.

QUESTION LIBRARY

Question Library

The Question Library is a central, shared repository for the questions you create, copy, and import.

By creating questions in the Question Library you can make them available to any number of quizzes, surveys, and self-assessments. You can use the Question Library to build an archive of questions that can then be reused and shared, to avoid re-inputting shared questions.

The assessment tools – quizzes, surveys, and self-assessments – share the questions stored in the Question Library. The questions that can be accessed by these tools are dependent on the tool type. Certain question types cannot be used by some tools. For example, surveys cannot use all quiz question types and quizzes cannot use some survey type questions.

Creating Questions in the Question Library

It is strongly recommended that you create all your quiz questions from within the Question Library. This gives you the ability to reuse questions on various quizzes and to create random sections within quizzes.

  1. Click on Assessments and then click on Quizzes link in the unit navigation bar.
  2. Click the Question Library button. The Question Library page displays.
  3. Consider to create sections by clicking on New and select Section. Enter a name and complete other fields as you wish then click Save.
    Note: Section is similar to folders, it helps to organise your questions so that it is easy to identify in the future. For example, create a section for all the questions from Topic 1.
  4. Click on the Section that you’ve created.
  5. Click New and select the applicable question type. Question types available including:
    a. True/False
    b. Multiple choice

  5. Select a number from the Answer Precision drop-down list to define the number of decimal places answers must be accurate to. To ensure the accuracy of the decimal places, tick the box of enforce precision .
  6. Type a Tolerance value and choose either Units or Percent to define how accurate answers must be. For example, a tolerance of 3% would allow answers to be off by 3%, or a tolerance of 5 units would allow answers to be off by 5 units (units are defined in the field below).
  7. Type the unit that the answer to the question should be in (if any) in the Units field (for example, MPH, meters, inches, etc.).
    a. Check the case sensitive box if the unit is case sensitive.
    b. If you want to assign points for using the correct unit in an answer, choose a percentage value from the Worth drop-down list.
  8. In the Variables section, define all of the variables you used in the Question Text.
    a. Type the name of your variable (for example, x) in the Name column.
    b. Type the minimum value for the variable in the Min column.
    c. Type the maximum value for the variable in the Max column.
    d. Select the applicable number of decimal places for the variable in the Decimal Places drop-down list.
    e. In the Step field, type the increment that the system should use when choosing random numbers from the range you specified in the Min and Max fields
    Example: If you create variable X with Min=100, Max=200 and Step=5, the system will only choose values for X that are increments of 5 above 100 (105, 110, 115, etc., up to 200) when generating questions.
  9. Click Add Variable to add more variables or Remove to delete extra variables.
  10. Click the Test button to test your formula. A new page will display containing an example of your formula.
  11. Click Save.

Example: If 50% is chosen in the Worth drop-down list, the user would receive 50% of the points for the question for answering with the correct value, and would receive the other 50% if they answered using the correct unit. Note that if you have selected the case sensitive option, users must type the unit in the proper letter case to have their answer considered correct.

Create a Significant Figures Question (x10)

The Significant Figures question type is most applicable to science and maths related units. This question type is similar to Arithmetic questions type, but allows users to enter their answers in scientific notation format. The questions are then graded based on what users entered as their significant digits.

Example: A user might submit an answer of 1.9 x 104. In this example, “1.9” are the significant digits.

  1. Click New and choose New Significant Figu Question from the drop down box.
  2. Assign a Title (optional), Points value and a Difficulty level.
  3. Enter your Question Text in the text box. To refer to variables, type the variable surrounded with curly braces, e.g., “Answer the following: {x} x {y} = “
  4. Type the formula you use to calculate the correct answer in the Formula text field. Refer to step 5 in the Arithmetic question instructions for a list of supported functions.
  5. Choose the number of significant figures that the system should accept in answers from the Significant Figures drop-down list (this is the number of digits that are accepted in the non-exponent field). Choose a percentage value from the Default drop-down list if you want to assign only a certain portion of marks for this question for entering the correct significant digits. Example: You might choose to assign 70% of the points for this question for getting the significant figures correct, and 30% for getting the unit correct.
  6. Select the Tolerance level. Type the applicable value in the corresponding text field. For example, a tolerance of 3% would allow answers to be off by 3%, or a tolerance of 1.2 x 102 units would allow answers to be off by that much.
  7. If your question uses a certain kind of unit (for example, MPH, mm, etc.), type the unit in the Units text field.
  8. If you want to assign points for using the correct unit in the answer, choose a percentage value from the Worth drop-down list.
    Example: If 30% is chosen in the Worth drop-down list, a user would receive 30% of the points for the question for using the correct unit, and the remaining 70% would be earned by answering with the correct significant figures.
  9. Check Case Sensitive if the unit is case sensitive.
  10. In the Variables section, define all of the variables you used in the Question Text.
    a. Type the name of your variable (for example, x) in the Name column.
    b. Type the minimum value for the variable in the Min column.
    c. Type the maximum value for the variable in the Max column.
    d. In the Step field, type the increment that the system should use when choosing random numbers from the range you specified in the Min and Max fields.
    Example: If you create variable X with Min=100, Max=200 and Step=5, the system sets values for X that are increments of 5 over 100 (105, 110, 115, etc., up to 200).
    Note: The Min, Max, and Step values must all be entered in scientific notation. Enter the significant digits in the first text field, and the exponent in the second text field that is to the upper-right of “x10”.
  11. Click Test to ensure that your formula has been entered properly. The system provides a test case of the equation in a new page.
  12. Click Save.
Create Fill in the Blanks Questions (FIB)

It is recommended that the total weight of your answers equals 100%, but this is not required. For example, if the question has a Point value of 3, and the question contains 3 answers with a Weight (%) of 50%, 100%, and 33.33%, then the first answer is worth 1.5 points (50% of the question’s Point value of 3), the second answer is worth 3 (100% of the question’s Point value of 3), and the third answer is worth 1 (33.33% of the question’s Point value of 3). Therefore, if a user answers all the answers correctly, the total points awarded for the question would be 5.5.

  1. Click New and choose Fill in the Blanks Question from the drop down box.
  2. Assign a Title (optional), Points value and a Difficulty level.
  3. Enter the Text that appears before the first blank in the first text field.
  4. Choose your blank size in the drop-down list.
  5. If you want to add more answers, click Add Answer.
  6. Enter a Weight (%) for each answer. The answer Weight (%) is a percentage of the assigned Point value for the question. For example, if the question has a Point value of 3, and the question contains 3 answers with a Weight (%) of 33.33% each, then each question is worth 1 point. (Each answer is worth 1/3 of the question’s Point value.)
  7. Enter the text that appears after the first blank in the next text field.
  8. If you want to add more text and blank options, click Add Text, Add Blank.
  9. Click Save.
Create a Multi-Select Question (M-S)

Use multi-select questions to have users identify several correct answers out of a list of possible answers.

Example: Identify all of the prime numbers in the following list: 1, 2, 6, 9, 10, 13, 15.

  1. Click New and choose Multi-Select Question from the drop down box.
  2. Assign a Title (optional), Points value and a Difficulty level.
  3. Enter your Question Text in the text box.
  4. If you want to use an image in the question, click Add a File and select an image to include.
  5. Use the Enumeration drop-down list to choose an enumeration style.
  6. Choose a display Style.
  7. Choose a Grading format:
    a. All or nothing – Users receive full points for the question only if they select all of the correct answers and none of the incorrect answers. They receive zero points if they miss any correct answers or select any incorrect answers.
    b. Right minus wrong – Users receive points equal to the number of right answers they choose minus the number of incorrect answers they choose. For example, if each answer is worth one point and a user selects 3 correct answers and 1 incorrect answer, they will receive 2 points for the question (3 minus 1).
    Note: To determine how much each answer is worth, the system takes the total number of points that the question is worth and divides it by the number of correct answers. For example, if a question is worth 4 points and has two correct answers, each correct answer is worth 2 points, and each incorrect answer is worth -2 points (users receive a minimum of zero on a question: they cannot receive a negative mark).
    c. Right answers – users receive points for each correct answer they select and for incorrect answers they leave blank. Incorrect answers selected and correct answers left blank are ignored. Example: Consider a question with a total of six potential answers, two answers being correct (in this case, choices a) and b) are the correct choices).
