Quizzes

Quizzes are questionnaires you can assign to one or more users to assess their knowledge of any subject. The quiz functionality is built on the assessment engine and provides many of the same features as assessments and surveys.

Each question is scored, and the overall score indicates the percentage of questions the user answered correctly. A quiz may have categories of questions that are assigned only to some users. You can assign weighting values to individual questions or categories of questions that make them more or less important when calculating the overall score. Quizzes require activation by a system administrator.

  • An administrator can create a quiz for any purpose and assign it to a single user or multiple users.
  • A quiz can contain one or more categories of questions. Each category can be assigned to users who answer only the questions in that category.
  • The system can send email notifications to these users:
    • Recipients: The recipient can receive notification of an assigned quiz, a quiz whose allowed duration is at 50%, and a quiz that is overdue.
    • Recipient's manager: The recipient's manager can receive notification when a quiz is overdue.
    • Quiz manager: The quiz manager can receive notification of an overdue quiz to which he or she is assigned.
  • Quizzes can contain questions that are scored or not scored. Unscored questions assess opinions or involve dates and are not counted in the final score. Scored questions specify correct answers and are scored either as 0% or 100%. You can apply a weighting scale to scored questions to establish their relative importance. You can designate questions with these data types as scored questions:
    • Checkbox
    • Choice
    • Duration
    • Likert Scale
    • Numeric Scale
    • Template
    • Yes/No
  • A quiz question can be dependent on the response to any scored question. For example, you can create a dependent question requesting additional information that appears only if a recipient answers No to a specific question.
