  4. In the Quiz Questions area, click Add/Edit Questions.
  5. Do any of the following:
    • To add questions from Question Library, another collection, or a text file, click Import. Select an option from each of the drop-down lists and specify the resulting settings, based on your chosen options. Click Save. Note: If you import questions from Question Library, your quiz will contain a copy of the questions, not the original questions. For more information on incorporating questions from Question Library, see Quizzes and Question Library.
    • To create a new question, from the New button, select the type of question you want to add. Enter the question details and click Save.

To discourage cheating in quizzes, you can shuffle the order of all questions in quizzes or specific groups of questions (sections) in quizzes. For example, you could shuffle questions 1-10 in a quiz, or shuffle questions 3-10 (grouping those questions into a section) and retain the order of questions 1-2 at the start of the quiz. When a quiz contains shuffled questions, each learner receives a quiz with a unique question order.
      Note: Shuffling the order of questions at the quiz level also shuffles the order of all sections in the quiz.

About quiz reports

You can view and export quiz reports to a CSV or Microsoft Excel file for data analysis. The file contains all applicable information from the quiz so that you can query, sort, and evaluate the data without being connected to the learning management system. You must set up quiz reports in the Reports Setup tab for the appropriate quiz before you can view or export reports.

All statistics are calculated based on a user's first attempt of the quiz. If a question is changed after attempts have occurred, then only the attempts on the newest version of the question are included in the statistical calculations.

Average grade is calculated only for first attempts of the quiz.

For all reports, you can set a release date and select roles to release the report to.

About random sections

You can 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.

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 Question Library into each random section, but you cannot create new questions within random section folders.

Managing random sections (renaming, reordering, deleting) is similar to managing quiz questions except you cannot publish random sections.
