The Quiz Tool

The Quiz tool allows you to create a variety of assessments for your students. While labeled ‘Quizzes’, this tool can be used for exams, surveys, and/or homework assignments.

The Quizzes tool can be used to create the following types of questions: multiple-choice, true/false, arithmetic (including specifying ranges of numbers with significant figures), fill-in-the-blank, multi-select, matching, ordering, and long and short answers.

Most question types offer auto-grading, and you can control whether these grades and feedback are auto released, or review by you first.

Also, the Quiz tool includes security and anti-cheating features such as password protection, random questions, randomization within questions, the Respondus Lockdown Browser, and more.
