Set up a category

A category represents a theme for evaluating a specific element of the quiz topic and contains questions pertaining to that theme.

About this task

When you create a quiz, the system creates a default category with the name of the quiz. You can use this category, modify it, or create additional categories as needed. Categories are records in the Quiz view of the Metric Category table.

Categories have weighting values that contribute to the overall score for the quiz. By default, all categories are given a weighting value of 10. You can assign any weight to your categories. To have any results, a category must contain scored questions.

Procedure

You can create a new category or edit an existing one from the Metric Categories related list of a quiz record.
