Advanced Tip: learn how to create a quiz with randomized questions

Creating and managing quizzes

The Quizzes tool enables you to create and manage points-measured assessments. As part of your quantifiable assessment procedures, you can use quizzes to help evaluate users' learning progress and learning outcomes. Create and manage quiz questions from the Question Library or the Quizzes tool, and organize quizzes into categories to make it easier to find assessments with similar or related content. Use the quiz preview option 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.

Once you receive completed quizzes from learners, you can view quiz statistics such as grade distribution, grade average, question statistics, and user statistics on the Statistics page.


  • You can only access Likert questions through the Surveys tool and Question Library. Likert questions are unavailable for quizzes.

  • You can now import Quiz and Question banks created in the IMS QTI 2.1 standard.
