Quiz Builder

The quiz builder helps you create interactive and innovative materials for students. The Tutor LMS quiz builder comes with 10 modern yet familiar question types to test out the students’ knowledge in the topics you have taught.

To get started, from the course builder (both frontend and backend), navigate into a topic and then click on the “Quiz” button. Then, give the quiz a name and a short description to let students know what this quiz is about.

After that, you can start adding questions to the quiz one by one. Let’s start by adding one of the most basic styles of questions: the Single Choice question.

Add the question, select the type from the dropdown, and a description if you want. There are a few settings for each question that you need to understand to make the best use of it:

  • Answer Required: Mark this as yes if you want this question to be mandatory to answer
  • Randomize: Mark as yes if you want the question’s order to be randomized among the list of questions.
  • Points for this answer: Use this field to change the points to be awarded for getting this question right
  • Display points: Enable this if you want to display the points on the quiz field

Add a few relevant answers and from them, select the correct answer. Make sure that there is only one obvious answer as this is a single choice question. Then, click save and continue to keep adding more.

After adding all needed questions, you can head to the settings to customize the quiz behaviour.

Quiz Feedback Mode: Decide how you want to provide your students with feedback after they are done taking the quiz. The tooltips describe what each mode means.

Attempts Allowed: Specify how many times each student can take and retake the quiz before it is hidden from them.

Passing Grade: Specify the passing grade for this quiz.

Max questions allowed to answered: This one’s a bit tricky. This feature is introduced to randomize questions in a quiz. The purpose of this function would be more clear with an example. Say you have 50 questions in a quiz, if you put 50 here, a student will have to answer all the 50 questions in order to complete the quiz. But if you put 10 here, the student will have to answer only 10 questions out of the 50 and these 10 questions will appear randomly. No student will get the same set of questions.
