Introduction

The Quizzes menu in your Learning Management System provides you with the tools needed to create a quiz, assign it to your students and check their results. The menu is accessible by everyone in your subdomain. However, there are differences in terms of what each account can view:

  • Organisation accounts, Administrators and Tutors have access to all submenus in the Quizzes category. They can create, review and complete quizzes assigned to them;
  • Students only have access to the Results menu, where they can see their quiz results and take quizzes assigned to them, respectively.

Quizzes: Creation

Log in with the Organisation account in your subdomain. In order to create a quiz from scratch, you will need to access the Quizzes option from the left side menu. To do this, first log in to your sub-domain as an Organisation.
