How to create assessments or add quizzes in your course? 

Assessments are a powerful tool to understand how much your learners have understood. Based on the data on performance, you could look at which sections need further tweaks to ensure learners retain maximum information. If on certain questions learners consistently perform below expectations, you could then look at the content in that section and tweak it or explain it better. This article covers how to create assessments, add objective & subjective questions, embed videos, and display results etc.

Before you begin

The assessment builder allows you to create Objective and Subjective questions each with its own pros and cons.

  • While Objective questions are primarily binary in nature such as Yes/No, True/False or Single Choice/Multiple Choice Questions.
  • Subjective Questions need detailed answers which could be a one-line answer or a paragraph based.

At the same time, Objective questions allow the user to complete the assessment with the results being published immediately.

On the other hand, subjective questions need further intervention from the course publisher to check each subjective question's answer. Hence, until the answer is graded, the platform would not show the assessment results. 

How to create assessments and add objective questions?

You can create both subjective and objective questions as part of the assessment. Objective questions can be single or multiple choice. Additionally, you can add images and videos with the options in the answers and in the question to add more context to the options. Here's how to create an assessment and add objective questions:

  • Access Courses in the Dashboard
  • Select the Builder icon under the course where you need to add the assessment 
  • Access the course builder
  • Create a new Chapter and add the chapter name
  • Select Assessment and click on Create Assessment to start
  • After clicking 'Create Assessment', a new window will open called the Assessment Builder
  • Type in the Assessment Description
  • Select the question type as Objective
  • Click on Add Objective Question
  • Type in the question, and select Add Option to add as many answer options you like
  • Click on the radio buttons to highlight the options that are the correct choices
    • All or any option selected here will be recorded as correct
  • Add a Hint if needed
  • Add images or embed videos in options and question as needed
  • Add the number of marks assigned to the question.
  • Replicate the process to add all the questions you need to create the assessment
  • Set passing marks, number of attempts allowed, and duration of the Assessment (in minutes)
  • Choose whether to shuffle questions or not
  • Click on Save & Close to complete the assessment
  • Click 'Save & Close' located at the bottom of the screen

How to create assessments and add subjective questions

Subjective questions are long-form answers to be submitted by your users that would require the publisher/assessor to review the answers. You can add an image, or video in the question as well to add more context. Here's how to add subjective questions to your assessments:

  • Inside the assessment, click on Add Subjective Question
  • Type in your question
  • Optionally, include an image, video, or hint for the question
  • Add as many desired subjective questions as needed
  • Set passing marks, number of attempts allowed, and duration of the Assessment (in minutes)
  • Choose whether to shuffle questions or not
  • Click on Save & Close to complete the assessment

You can embed a video in the question or answer by copying the embed code from YouTube using the Share option. Here's how:

YouTube Embed

  • On the pop-up, you would be prompted for the video embed code
Embed Code On YouTube

How to show assessment results

What happens when I enable the Show Assessment Result option?

If you enable the Assessment result option, the learners will be able to see the correct answer and their own selection for a specific question, if the Assessment includes Objective Questions. Here’s what the learner experience looks like:

Additionally, learners can also easily check the status of the assessments assigned to them in a course. Based on the assessments attempted, the status could be:

  • Passed
  • Failed
  • Not Attempted
  • Results Awaited

As shown in the image below, if any assessments are yet to be attempted, the results will show - Not Attempted

Important Considerations

  • In case the course participant does not select all the right options, the question would be marked as incorrect. 
  • You can add multi-line assessment questions, on assessment builder, on assessment delivery, and on subjective questions' assessment reviews as well.
  • You can add as many questions as required. 
  • Maximum size for an image being uploaded must be under 1 MB. 
  • Only YouTube videos can be embedded in questions or answer options.  
  • The character limit for text in the assessments are as mentioned below:
    • Questions: 10,000
    • Objective answer options: 500
    •  Subjective answer text limit: No limit
    • Hints: 200
  • There is no capping to the number of questions that can be added in an assessment.
