Creating Quizzes

The Quiz Tools creates and manages quiz assessments. You can use these tools to help evaluate student progress and learning outcomes. When creating a quiz it is important to consider the design of your question. There are many different question types available, so you can choose the ones that best suit your course content. The quiz tool consists of three main areas: creating/managing quizzes, the question library, and quiz statistics.

Creating a Quiz

Creating a quiz involves two parts, creating/importing the quiz questions and select your desired quiz settings.

Part Two: Quiz Settings

There are many settings options for quizzes. The settings associated with the various tabs are listed below.

Properties tab

  1. Select a Category from the drop-down list or create a new one by selecting add category if you want your quizzes organized by category.

  2. Under Quiz Questions there are the following options:

    1. If you would like to limit the number of questions that appear per page, fill in the text box for the questions per page field and click Apply. If left blank, the entire quiz will appear on one page.

    2. If you would like to prevent students from moving backwards through pages, check the Prevent moving backwards through pages box.

    3. If you would like the questions to appear in a random order, check the Shuffle questions at the quiz level box.

  3. If you want to add a message (optional), select Expand description/introduction and enter your message in the appropriate text field:

    • Description - Selecting the on radio button will make the description viewable to students prior to quiz availability.

    • Disable Email, Instant Message and alerts - users will not be able to access the Email or Instant Messages tool or their alerts if they have a quiz attempt in progress.

    • Notification Email - allows specified users to receive an email message any time a user completes a quiz attempt. Enter the users email addresses and separate them using commas.

  6. Click Save or Save and Close.

Restrictions tab

This tab provides settings for quiz availability. By default, quizzes are set to inactive and will not honour the settings in this area until the quiz is set to active.

  1. Hide from Users box is checked by default, this needs to be unchecked prior to making the quiz available.

  2. To restrict access to the quiz, check the Has Start DateHas End Date and/or Has Due Date boxes and specify the start, end and due dates.

    • A Start Date indicates when the assignment is released to students. Prior to the Start Date, students will be able to see the quiz (unless it has been hidden), but they will not be able to access it.

    • A Due Date is the instructor-given date (and time) deadline for submitting a quiz. However, a student may submit after the Due Date (up until an End Date, if one is set), in which case it is marked late, in red, in both the instructor and the student view.

    • An End Date is more restrictive. It cuts off the quiz at the End Date and time set, where the student can no longer start a quiz.

    • If a Due Date and End Date are both set, then the quiz can be submitted late, after the Due Date, until the End Date is reached.  

    • Check Display in Calendar if you would like these dates to appear in the Waterloo LEARN calendar. The option to add to calendar will only become available if you have unchecked the Hide from Users option.

  3. To create Additional Release Conditions, click Create and Attach to create new release conditions.

    • To remove conditions, click the Remove icon beside individual conditions or Remove All Conditions. Release conditions specify actions students must complete or achieve before gaining access to the quiz. (E.g., view a certain module, submit something to a dropbox, get a certain grade on a previous assignment, etc.). Refer to the Release Conditions documentation for more information.

  4. To password protect the quiz, you must provide the password to students to access the quiz. Only users who enter the password will be granted access to complete the quiz.

  5. Time Limit and Late Submission options

    • Set the Time Limit for your quiz. A time limit MUST be entered even if the time for the quiz is “unlimited”.

    • Select Enforced Time Limit if you would like the quiz to be limited to the amount of time.

      1. Enter the number of minutes students are allowed to complete the quiz in Time Limit.

      2. Enter the number of minutes for a Grace Period. The grace period is the number of minutes students have after the time limit has expired to submit their quiz before it is flagged as late.

      3. Under Exceeded Time Limit Behaviour, select the desired behaviour after the Grace Period has been exceeded:

        • Allow the student to continue working. Users may continue to make changes and submit after the grace period.  The quiz will be marked as late.

        • Prevent the student from making further changes. Users will not be able to make changes once the grace period has passed.  The student will only be able to submit.

        • Allow the student to continue working, but automatically score the attempt as zero after an extended deadline. Users can always submit their quiz, regardless of the set time limit. If the quiz is submitted after the Time Limit + Grace Period time expires, the user receives a score of 0 on the quiz. You can manually grade this score if you feel that the user deserves more than 0.

  6. If you would like to allow special access to the quiz, select the appropriate option and then click the Add Users to Special Access button to add users (e.g., Accessibility students who require additional time to take the quiz). For additional information see the Special Access documentation.

    • Set the "Special Access Properties" from the options provided.  Any of the settings can be changed including Start/End dates, Amount of Time and/or the number of attempts.

    • Select the student(s) to receive these new restrictions.

    • Select Add Special Access.

  7. Click Save or Save and Close.

If a student will need consistent special access throughout the course, you can also add Accommodations which will affect all quizzes within the course. Special access will override any set Accommodations.

Assessment tab

This tab contains the settings for associating quiz results with a grade item, automatically transferring grades to the gradebook,​ and controlling the number of allowable attempts. By default, grades are not automatically published to the gradebook.

  • Checking the Allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion will grade quiz questions that can be auto-graded. If you have question types like short and written response questions, the marks will not automatically transfer because manual marking is required.

  • Select the Grade Item from the drop-down list or create a new one by clicking add grade item (if you would like to transfer the marks from the quiz into the gradebook). See the Grades documentation for additional information.

  • Checking the Auto Export to Grades will push the grades for the quiz to the gradebook. This requires that a grade item is associated with the quiz and that the allow attempt to be set as graded immediately upon completion is also checked.

  • Click the down arrow under Student View Preview if you wish to overwrite the default display settings that impact the way in which the quiz scores are displayed in the gradebook (only applicable if associated with a grade item in the gradebook).

  • Set the number of Attempts Allowed. The default is "1". Remember to click Apply if you alter this number.

    • If the number of attempts is set to any number greater than 1 (excluding unlimited) Advanced Attempt Conditions can be created (optional). This allows you to enter a minimum and/or maximum percentage that a student needs to achieve on the previous attempt to qualify for another attempt.

  • Selecting Retake Incorrect Questions Only will mean that learners who attempt a quiz more than once can only answer questions that were incorrect on the previous attempt. If you are using Automatic grading, Written Response questions will be marked as 0 and included in future attempts until they are graded manually.

  • Overall Grade Calculation allows you to select how a user's grade for a quiz is calculated if multiple attempts are allowed. Select your desired option from the drop-down list.

You can change what quiz details are made visible to the students at a later date by selecting the Submission Views tab and applying a start date for that view. The default submission view is raw score only.

Submission View tab

By default, upon submitting a quiz, students will see their overall raw score for only those questions that can be auto-graded. Typically, this is the preferred setting as students may be completing the quiz at different times. However, it may be appropriate to make questions and answers available at a later date. Submission Views can be created and set to release dates for such purposes.

  1. Click the Add Additional View button.

  2. Enter a Title for the view and optionally enter a message.

  3. Set a release Date.

  4. Optionally, if multiple attempts are allowed, select the attempt you want the restrictions to apply to.

    • Enter a Min Score and/or Max Score (optional).

  5. Select Limited Duration if you want to limit the amount of times for which the view is available after a student has submitted the quiz and enter the number of minutes (optional).

  6. Under View Details, select the details to be visible to students (show questions, score, and statistics).

  7. In the example below only questions answered incorrectly will be visible.

  8. Click Save.

Reports Setup tab

Here you can set up reports you would like to view for your quiz. This is not a mandatory part of setup, if you do not wish to review reports of your quiz, you may skip this tab. You can also create reports at any point in the future if you decide they are needed.

To create a report:

  1. Click Add Report.

  2. Enter the Report Name.

  3. Select the Report Type and what you want to be included in the report.

  5. Choose the role/people you would like to Release Report To. If you are the instructor and do not select the Instructor role then you will not be able to see the report.

  6. Click Save.

Question Library

The question library allows you to create, edit, and store questions for all quizzes (and surveys) within your course. Creating questions within the question library is required if you are using random question pools. Otherwise, you can create questions in the quiz.

  • To access the Question Library select Submit from the course navbar and select Quizzes.

  • Select Question Library.

  • Use the New drop-down menu and select either Section or Question Type.

  • After you have created quiz sections and/or questions, you can manage them in the Question Library. The following options are displayed at the top of the Question Library page after you have created sections or questions:

    • Create New Question or Section drop-down list.

    • Import questions from an existing quiz or text file.  

    • Move selected questions or sections.

    • Delete selected questions/sections.

    • Order selected questions/sections.

    • Edit Values allows you to quickly edit the points and the difficulty level of questions.

Creating Sections to the Question Library

Think of the sections in the Question Library as file folders in which you can store and organize groups of questions. For example, you might create a "multiple choice" section where you would put all your multiple choice questions, or a section containing all questions related to a specific topic, such as "Theoretical Fundamentals," or a section might contain questions for one particular quiz, or if you want to provide the same set of instructions for multiple questions. You may also have sections within sections.

Having your questions organized in sections is also useful when you create a quiz. Instead of importing the questions one at a time, you can import a whole section of questions into a quiz at the same time.

  1. Select Submit from the course navbar and select Quizzes.

  2. Select the Question Library tab.

  3. Click the New button and select Section from the drop-down menu.

  4. On the New Section page, enter a Section Title.

  5. If you would like you can enter a message and/or an image with a description in the Section Text box.

  6. You can determine if you would like to Hide Section Title from learners and Hide Section Text from learners.

    • If you are using sections simply as a way to organize your question library, you will likely want to select these options.

    • If the sections correspond to an actual quiz section that you would like students to be aware of and that may contain specific instructions for that section of the quiz (e.g. “answer the following questions based on this…”) you will likely want to unselect some/all of the options.

  7. You can select Shuffle questions in this section which will randomize the order of all the questions in th section.

  8. Once you have selected your desired options you can click the Save button to return to Question Library page will appear again, click Save and New to create another section, or Save and Copy to create another section with the same information.

Creating Questions in the Question Library

There are twelve possible question types that you can create within the question library. These include: true or false, multiple choice, multiple select, written response, short answer, multi-short answer, fill in the blanks, matching, ordering, arithmetic and significant figures. The process for creating each question type is slightly different. This section provides an overview of the process, but detailed step-by-step instructions for each question type, see Quiz and Survey question types.

    • A point value is required for all questions. The default is 1 point and the value cannot be set to zero.

    • Images can be added to the Question Text.

    • “Weight” refers to what percent credit a student will receive for selecting an answer. Some questions will automate a weight for the question, while others will need to be specified. The weight of some questions can be customized for partial credit by selecting Options and then Add Custom Weights from the dropdown menu.

    • The "Feedback" field gives information to students who select that answer. They will only be able to see it after they have submitted their answers to the quiz. Feedback can be added in the "Feedback" field next to the question or by selecting Options and Add Feedback, depending on the question type.

    • Text entered in the "Question Hints" field or by selecting Add Hint from the Options dropdown menu can be viewed by students as they are answering the question.

    • You have access to the preview, and spell-check features in each question text field. Click Preview to view your question as it will appear during use and grading. To access the Preview, click on the full-screen button in the Question Text toolbar.

  6. When you have finished creating the question choose from the following options:

    • Click Save to save the question and return to the main page
