First, a matter of terminology. As for the words “quiz”, “test” and “exam”, we call an automatically marked series of questions a Quiz, and a manually marked one an Exam.
- Unlimited number and order of quizzes and exams
- Can be anywhere in a course or stand-alone
- Questions can contain any kind of web content
- Unlimited number of questions
- Unlmited number of possible answers
- Set any Minimum Pass Mark. Can allow re-takes of failed quizzes
- Questions can be normal multiple choice or Graphical HotSpot format
- Questions in manually marked exams can also be long-answer format
Creating quizzes and exams is easy. Just like the Review Questions, the questions can be any size you want and can contain any type of web content.
Minimum Pass Mark and Re-Take
You can set a minimum pass mark anywhere from 0% to 100%. The standard seems to be set at 100% with the Enable Re-Take turned on. This gives you self-corrected to 100% performance.
Upon a re-take, you can also allow the Navigation to open so Students can easily look up and learn the correct answers.
When a student completes a quiz, they can see their entire quiz with all their selected answers marked correct or incorrect. You can choose whether this is shown or not.
In the Records, you can bring up any Quiz Summary for any Student in any Course at any time.
You can choose to have the system automatically issue a branded Certificate by e-mail upon a Student achieving the minimum pass mark. You can also set who gets these (usually the Student and their supervisor or the Training Manager).
Typically, if the quiz is inside a course, then this feature is turned off if you have a Minimum Pass Mark set. That is because they can not complete the course until they pass the quiz, so when they get their Course Completion Certificate, you know they passed the quiz.
Certificates can be accessed in the records at any time. There is also the option of a print resolution PDF format certificate.
Question Reference Page Link
For each question, you can easily add a reference hyperlink to the page that the question refers to, so students can learn the answers. This is similar to an “open book” test.
Manually Marked Exams
You can set a quiz to be manually marked. In this case, the Instructor assigned to that course can log in and see a list of Students waiting for marking. The Instructor can view each student’s complete exam. Any multiple choice questions have already been scored, and the Instructor can manually assign a mark to long answer questions and a final score for the exam.
Same as for Review Questions, you can add your questions to your Question Bank, and assign them key words. When making new quizzes or exams, you can search for questions on a particular subject and pop them in with a couple clicks.
