How to create a quiz

With the increasing popularity of online quizzes, creating your own can be a fun and effective way to engage with students and test their knowledge on a particular subject.


Follow the steps below to provide a full learning experience for your students.

  1. Navigate to the Learning Content tab from your dashboard. 
  2. Go to the Quizzes subtab.
  3. Click on the Create New Quiz button on the right.

Accessing the quizzes section.

 

Quiz main description 

From this section, you add the main information about the quiz.

Filling in the quiz description.

 

  • Title - fill in the name of the quiz in the corresponding field
  • Image - choose an image to make the quiz more appealing. The image size should be no bigger than 714 x 398 px. 
  • Description - add a description so that the students know what to expect.


Below you can see several toggles allowing you to customize the quiz.

 

  • Automatic checking - if the question does not contain long text answers, activate this button, and the quiz results will be shown immediately after passing it.
  • No registration required- if you activate this toggle, students will be able to pass the quiz without registering on the website first. 
  • One question - if you don’t want all the questions to appear at once, activate this toggle. The questions will be displayed one by one.
  • Hide answers - activate this toggle if you don’t want the students to see right/wrong answers after passing the quiz. 
  • Time - if you activate this button, the duration will be set.

Insert the maximum time limit for completing the quiz in the box below.

You can also set the passing score, i.e., the minimum percentage a student must achieve to complete the course successfully. 


The passing score will come in handy when you want to add the quiz to the video courses section. When you attach the quiz with the passing score to the video course, the students will not be able to access the next episode unless they reach or go over the passing score. 

For example, if you set the passing score as 60% and the student only gets 55%, they will have to repass it with 60% or more to access the next episode. 


Choose the author of the quiz from the list.

Click on Save and go ahead button below. 

 

Questions 

From this section, you can add the questions. Insert your question in the corresponding box. You can include audio, an image, or a video file.

Adding new questions to the quiz.

The next step is selecting the answer type. If, in the first step, you activate the “Automatic checking toggle, the answer types will be the following ones.

  • Multiple Options ( more than one correct answer option)
  • Multiple Choice (one correct answer option)
  • Dropdown 
  • Picture Choice

 


If you have chosen the multiple-choice option, click on Add new answer. Indicate the right answer to the question. For another question, click the Save & add new question button.

 

Indicating the right answer for the quiz.

If you didn’t activate the Automatic checking toggle, here are the options you will get in the Questions section:

  • Multiple Options ( more than one correct answer option) 
  • Multiple Choice (one correct answer option)
  • Dropdown
  • Short text
  • Picture Choice 
  • Long text 
  • Upload a file answer (student can upload their answers)

The File must be a file of type: jpg, png, mp4, pdf, CSV, xlsx, ppt, pptx, xls, mp3, doc, txt, docx, rtf, xml, zip, json, webp, mov.


Important Note: autocheking works only with the question types you can indicate the right answer for. So, when you select short, long, and file question types, the system cannot tell if the answers are right or wrong. Thus it will not be able to auto-check and show instant results. 

 

Settings

It’s time to customize some settings to give your quiz a final look.

Here are the main options of the quiz status you can choose from.

Enabling the random questions feature.

  • Draft - choose this option if the quiz isn’t ready yet and you want to save it in your dashboard for further changes.
  • Publish - choose this option if the quiz is ready to be taken 
  • Unlisted - choose this option so only the students you send the link can access the quiz.


If you activate the Shuffle questions button, the quiz questions will appear in random order. 

For example, if the quiz contains 20 questions and you typed 5 in the Count of random questions box, every time the quiz opens 5 random questions out of 20 will show. 


Filling in SEO details is not compulsory in the quiz creation process. However, you can add them, so your quiz is visible on search engine results pages.


Add the title, meta description, and some keywords. 

Filling in SEO details.

Now your quiz is ready to be published!
