On the Manage Quizzes page, click Grade from the context menu of the quiz you want to grade. You can grade by Users (individual attempts), Attempts (whole quiz) or by Questions (individual items). Select the grade option you want from the appropriate tab.
Click Display Options under the More Actions button and select the appropriate check boxes to modify the following:
The following displays at the beginning of a quiz result:
While grading a quiz, click the Questions tab to view quiz responses by question. Before you click on a question, there are two options available to view question responses: Grade Individual Responses and Update All Attempts.
Grade Individual Responses enables you to grade a quiz one question at a time. This means you can grade and leave feedback for all responses to each question before moving onto the next question. There are two additional options available in this view:
Update All Attempts enables you to view question statistics, make grading changes, and leave feedback for all responses to the selected question.
Question statistics display a percentage breakdown of how users responded to the question and the date of the most recent response. Other information that displays in the question statistics includes the quiz version, question text and options, and number of responses for each option.
Below the question statistics, there are options to modify the grade for all responses to the current question. Use Grading Type to override grades for all users at once, instead of individually updating each quiz attempt. The following options are available for the Grading Type:
Note Any changes made to the grading of a quiz question record in the Modifications Log. The log documents the date, time, username, and action taken for each change to quiz grading.
Question types available to the Quizzes tool are similar to the questions available in the Self Assessments and Surveys tools (except Likert questions). Quizzes can contain the following question types:
See Cobra Learning - Question Types for information about creating the different types.
See Creating bonus quiz questions for information about creating bonus quiz questions.
Tip As a best practice, we recommend that you create all quiz questions within the Question Library. This enables you to reuse questions in various quizzes, surveys, and self assessments.
All quiz question types allow you to include Feedback and Hints. Feedback enables you to provide added information as a basis for improving content comprehension. Hints are useful for suggesting how to approach a question.
You can provide feedback comments at the end of a question such as what details instructors are looking for in an ideal response.
Creating a quiz involves a series of steps. After you name a quiz, you can access its tab menus to define its general properties, restrictions, assessment, objectives, submission views, and reports setup.
Category: Group your quiz under an existing category or create a new category. Categories are useful for organizing quizzes with similar or related content. If you haven't set up categories for your quiz, click add category to create and name a new category. See Creating quiz categories for more information.
Click Add/Edit Questions to create quiz questions, sections, and to manage other question properties. See Creating quiz questions for more information.
Once you have added at least one question to your quiz, you can Edit Values to modify points value and difficulty level, and make questions bonus or mandatory.
Click Done Editing Questions to return to the Edit Quiz page. Once you add questions to your quiz, you can enter a value in the Questions per page field to indicate how many questions to display per page. Limiting the amount of questions available at a time is less overwhelming than placing an entire quiz on one page. You can also choose to prevent users from moving backwards through pages once they have left a page of questions. You can also select to shuffle questions at the quiz level.
Change description and introduction visibility by selecting on or off. NOTE: it is off by default. Typing in the box does not turn it on, so you'll have to manually select the on option for it to display to users.
Description Create a description for a quiz that is not yet available to users.
Introduction Display a message to users at the start of a quiz. This will display at the top of a quiz before the first question.
Add information or instructions to the top or bottom of the quiz page. Change page header and footer visibility by selecting on or off. NOTE: these are off by default. Typing in the box does not turn it on, so you'll have to manually select the on option for it to display to users.
The following options are available in optional advanced properties:
Allow hints: Allows users to access hints to questions.
Disable right click: (Ctrl-click on a Mac) prohibits users from copying or printing quiz questions by right-clicking on a question when taking a quiz.
Note: You can not disable ctrl-click for Mac users who use Safari.
Disable instant message and alerts: Users cannot access the instant message tool or their alerts if they have a quiz attempt in progress.
Notification Email: The email address or comma-separated list of email addresses specified in this field receive a message each time a user completes a quiz attempt.
Uncheck "Hide from Users" to allow users to see and take the quiz. You can specify a date range that your quiz becomes available to users as well as a recommended due date. You can also add quizzes associated with a date to display in your course calendar.
Create new, or attach existing, release conditions if you want a quiz to be available to users only after they fulfill other specified tasks. Examples of release conditions include completing a dropbox submission; scoring a specified grade in a particular quiz; completing a survey; and being enrolled in a particular section. You can edit and change release conditions by clicking the Remove icon or Remove All Conditions.
The Respondus LockDown Browser is located on the Quizzes link page.
Password: To access a quiz, users must enter the same password you input here.
IP Restriction: Users can only access a quiz from the IP address you specify here. Leave fields blank to allow multiple IP address access points.
You can specify whether users have a limited or unlimited amount of time to complete the quiz.
When enforcing a time limit, you can define specific outcomes for late submissions (exceeded time limit behavior):
You can search and assign specific users a different set of quiz availability dates and late submission properties. Special access properties enable you to change the time limit, allow different start and end dates, or override attempts allowed for individual users.
Click Add Users to Special Access to create special access to a quiz. After you finish modifying special access properties and users permissions, click Add Special Access.
Types of Access: Allow selected users special access to this quiz gives everyone access to the quiz, but the special access properties apply to the ones listed. Allow only users with special access to see this quiz prevents other users from accessing the quiz, granting access ONLY to the special access users.
Automatic Grade: Users can see quiz grade immediately after completion and submission.
Grade Item: When associated with a quiz, you have the option to auto export quiz results to the Grades tool.
Auto Export to Grades: The system can send auto-graded attempt scores directly to the grade book if a quiz is associated with a grade item.
Student View Preview: If you associate the quiz with a grade item, you can click Edit Display Settings from the Student View Preview context menu to manage how grades display to students.
ePortfolio Artifacts: You can allow users to add quiz results to their ePortfolio.
Note: The ability to display an automatic grade is limited by questions that cannot be auto-graded.
You can allow users one or more (unlimited) quiz attempts and calculate a grade based on their highest attempt, lowest attempt, first attempt, last attempt, or average of all attempts.
Associate a quiz with a set of learning objectives and a competency that you want users to master.
A default quiz submission view will appear to users after each quiz attempt submission. The default view shows the students their score only. (See this KB article for a detailed walkthrough of setting up a submission view).
You can edit the default view or create and select a customized view.
Use quiz reports to gather information on user performance. Quiz reports are different from quiz statistics; reports collect and present more types of information than is available through statistics. Choose a report type to display question statistics, question details, users statistics, attempt details, or user attempts. You can also select a release date and choose which roles have permission to view each report.
Create quiz sections to organize your questions into folders. You can do this in the Question Library or while creating a quiz. Both of these areas are identical in functionality: one creates folders within the Question Library, while the other creates folders within a quiz.
You can also import sections from the Question Library directly into a quiz, survey, or self assessment. Importing a section transfers the section folder and any properties associated with the section (section name, messages, images, or feedback). You can still import all of the questions within a section separate from the section itself by creating the section within a quiz and clicking Add/Edit Questions.
Note Although you can create subsections within sections, we recommend you keep question organization simple and intuitive.
Note Managing quiz sections (renaming, reordering, publishing, deleting) is similar to managing quiz questions.
Manage multiple quizzes at the same time. You can edit common properties such as name, category, status, and number of attempts allowed.
A copied quiz contains all of the questions from the original quiz. Copying is a quick and simple way to create a quiz that assesses prior and current understanding of course materials.
Note You can only copy quizzes within the same course.
The quiz preview option allows you to test the accuracy of content and grading before you release a quiz. In a preview, you can answer the questions, view allowed hints, submit the quiz, auto-grade answers, read feedback, and view report results.
Change the order of quizzes in the Quiz List page. Quizzes reorder within their respective categories if more than one category exists.
Note To reorder categories, see Reordering quiz categories.
You can organize quizzes into categories to make it easier to find assessments with similar or related content.
Change the order of categories that display on the Quizzes List page.
Note: Quizzes under "Without Category" will always be at the top of the list.
Create random sections in quizzes to distribute a unique set of questions to individual users. Random sections pull questions from a designated pool of questions stored in the Question Library. Specify how many questions users receive from the random section question pool after you import questions from the Question Library into the random section folder.
Since you can only access random sections within quizzes, you must create a quiz before you can create its random sections. You can import an infinite number of questions from the Question Library into each random section, but you cannot create new questions within random section folders.
Note Managing random sections (renaming, reordering, deleting) is similar to managing quiz questions except you cannot publish random sections.
Note: The bonus value is equal to the points value assigned to the quiz question.
