Quizzes: edit and manage

Introduction

The LMS365 quiz functionality enables you to create and deploy a variety of quizzes as an intermediate or final test. Adding quizzes to courses and training plans enables you to track the progress of learners and test their knowledge.

This article describes how to edit and delete quizzes at catalog level, how to manage quizzes from within a course, how to track learners' quiz progress, and how to view question statistics.

If you change the Quiz passing score in the Details and settings tab, the updated passing score will apply to learners' new and incomplete attempts. Changes will be applied when a learner continues an attempt and submits an answer. The passing score won't change for completed attempts.

 

To edit questions from a question pool directly from a quiz:

  • If the Specific selection method was used to add questions to the quiz, you can edit and delete the questions from the quiz editor. Any changes applied to questions via the quiz editor won't affect the question pool.
  • If the Random selection method was used to add questions to the quiz, the questions in the quiz editor are grouped together under the question pool title. In brackets after the title, you can find the number of questions from this question pool that are used in the quiz. Selecting the Edit icon opens the Question selection panel. Selecting the Delete icon deletes the group of questions. Any changes made here won't affect the question pool.
