Create quizzes with forms

As an alternative to the Quiz Designer, you can create a complete quiz using records in the Assessment application.

All the elements of a quiz, the categories, questions, and answers, are stored in tables used by the assessment engine and are displayed in quiz views of these tables. Users creating quizzes in the Assessment application must have the assessment_admin role.

The best practice for creating a quiz using assessment forms is to follow the procedures in the order shown here:

  • Create the quiz.
  • Set up the categories.
  • Create the questions for the quiz.
  • Create the answers for the questions.
  • Distribute the quizzes to recipients.
Note: The recommended method of creating and editing quizzes is to use the quiz designer, which provides a single, intuitive interface for creating and editing quizzes quickly. If you determine that you need to add specific features to your quiz not offered through the quiz designer, you can do so by using some of the specific procedures described here.
