Quizzes are a great way for you to test students on the knowledge they've gained in class while saving yourself time on marking. You can set multiple choice questions for students to answer within a time limit, or you can give them an unlimited time to answer.
Create a new Quiz
First of all, enter the title for the quiz. This will appear on the school calendar, as well as on the students’ personal calendars.
Add a description to your quiz so that you can give the students instructions, and include web links to videos that may be useful for your task.
Select a subject for the quiz. This will help students locate their homework on the school calendar and can be used as a filter for reports.
Select the class group your homework will be assigned to from the drop down menu.
💡Top Tip: Repeat this step as many times as necessary to set homework to multiple classes. You can also post homework to a class you are covering: the classes you don't teach can be found at the bottom of the list.
Time limit per question
You will be able to choose how long you would like to give your students to answer each question. Select from the drop down menu 15, 30, 60, or 120 seconds. You can also opt for 'No time limit'.
The Issue date field allows you to set the date when the task will first appear in the school calendar as well as the student and parent personal calendars. This allows you to set homework far in advance but prevents students from rushing ahead. The Due date field allows you to select the last day the task will be open for submissions.
