Quizzes are associated with an individual lesson. That means that in order to add a quiz, you will need to create a lesson first. To do that, go to Lessons > Add New. You will see that the Quiz block has already been added at the bottom of the lesson. (Note: For managing quizzes using the legacy meta boxes, please refer to this documentation.)
From here, you can choose to either add a new question or an existing question.
Please see the Questions documentation for information on how to add new questions. It’s worth noting that when a new question is added to a quiz, that question is also added to the question bank so that it can be used again in other quizzes.
You can also select one or more existing questions from the question bank to add to the quiz. With the quiz block selected, scroll to the bottom and click the + button that appears above Add new or existing question. Then choose Existing Question(s):
The Questions modal appears that enables you to select multiple questions to add to the quiz. You can filter by question type and category, or search for a question by name. To add a particular question, check the box that appears beside it and then click the Add Selected button. You can select as many questions as you like:
It’s important to note that if an existing question is used in another quiz, any changes you make to the question in this quiz are also applied to the other quiz. This is denoted by a Shared Question indicator that is displayed when a shared question is selected. Hovering over it shows a tooltip with more information:
To remove a question from a quiz:
Please note that removing a question from a quiz does not remove it from the question bank. To delete the question entirely, go to Questions > All Questions, hover over the question, and click the Trash link.
To remove a quiz from a lesson:
Please note that removing a quiz from a lesson does not remove the questions from the quiz. This means that if you change your mind and add the quiz back to the lesson, the questions will also be restored.
To change the order that questions appear in the quiz:
Quiz settings are available in the sidebar after selecting the Quiz block:
If there is no quiz associated with a lesson, the lesson will display a Complete Lesson button. This button enables learners to mark the lesson as complete and move to the next one.
*This section is only applicable for those who are still using the legacy meta boxes, rather than blocks, to manage quizzes.
There are a couple of scenarios in which meta boxes are used for quiz management:
When adding a new lesson, you will find the Quiz Settings panel below the main content area, with a message indicating that there is no quiz for this lesson (yet!). You will need to save the lesson before you will be able to create the quiz:
There are three methods available for adding questions to a quiz on the Edit Lesson screen. You can add a new question, add an existing question, or add a category question(s). Please note that category questions will not appear unless you have created at least one category under Questions > Categories in your dashboard.
Please see the Question Bank documentation for information on how to add new questions. It’s worth noting that when a new question is added to a quiz, that question is also added to the question bank, so that it can be used again in other quizzes:
The Existing Questions tab enables you to select one or more existing questions from the question bank and add them to the quiz. You can search for a question by name, or filter by question type and question category. You can also search for questions that either have or haven’t already been used in another quiz:
The panel displays 10 questions per page. Remember that selections are not preserved between pages, so you must select and add questions from one page before moving to the next.
The Category Questions tab enables you to insert a random selection of questions from a question category. After selecting a category from the dropdown and entering the number of questions to display, questions in that category are added to the quiz. They appear as a single entry in the table:
You can add multiple groups of category questions to the quiz:
You can also combine existing questions with category questions. Sensei LMS ensures that a question is not displayed more than once in the same quiz:
To remove a question or group of questions from a quiz, click the Remove link in the Quiz Questions table. This will not remove the question from the question bank. To do that, go to Questions > All Questions, hover over the question, and click the Trash link.
Once you’ve added questions to your quiz, you can customize the settings in the Quiz Settings panel:
