Overview of Quizzes
The Quiz activity in learnonline allows you to design and build quizzes containing many question types (e.g. multiple choice, true/false, short answer). learnonline stores all quiz questions in a question bank, from which they can be imported into different quizzes—for example, for revision purposes
The system will automatically grade multiple choice or True/False questions. Short answers or Essay questions will have to be manually marked. The system will not show an overall mark until ALL questions have a mark.
You can create a large question bank and then randomly select a number of questions, which reduces the likelihood of students taking the same quiz.
To create a quiz, you first create an empty 'shell' which you then add questions too.
