CREATE A QUIZ


It's easy to add a quiz to an EasyCampus course. Many question types are available to keep your quiz lively. Grading is automatic or you can manually change grades.


Before You Begin


  • Understand how to turn Editing off and on. If you don’t know how to do this, use the step guide titled Edit a Page to help you.
  • Make a rough set of questions you want to ask. If necessary, jot down any feedback you'd like to give quiz-takers if they get an answer wrong, right, or just in general.

  • Display the course into which you want to add a quiz.
  • Make sure editing is turned on
  • Click the Manage Activities tab.
