Quizzes

Quizzes are one of the most powerful and popular assessment tools available with ScholarLMS. The chief reason behind that is the flexibility and automation available with this assessment tool.

Quizzes can be of various types – multiple choice questions, pictorial answer choices, progressive difficulty levels (adaptive), time limited quizzes, attempt limited quizzes and many other such variations. The responses to quizzes can be self-graded and you can automate when a learner needs to take a quiz and what happens when the learner achieves more or less than the qualifying marks.

I have a large set of questions that I want should appear randomly in my quizzes. Is that possible?

That is one of the key features of the quizzes module. You can create what is known as a question bank with a large number of questions and then you can individually pick questions from this bank in an individual quiz or you can have the quiz randomly select questions from the bank and populate a quiz automatically.

What is more – the question bank can be used by all courses within the LMS. So your effort of putting the questions once will pay you many times over when the questions are simply pulled into quizzes from other related courses as well.

To know more, take a look at this quick 'assessment tools' video that gives you an idea of what assessment tools this online platform for teaching offers.
