Video: Adding questions to a quiz

The next step in setting up our quiz is to begin adding the questions that we created inside of our question bank into this quiz. So make sure you are inside of your quiz and then select the Edit tab. We next want to select the Category of questions that we want to pull from. In our case, we want the Default for Coral Reef Ecology. This will bring up a listing of all of the questions that we have created in the previous exercises. Next, we'll go through and check the box next to all the questions that we want to add. In our case, we'll add all of the questions except for the 0103015 and 016 questions. If we wanted to add an individual question, we could press the double-headed arrow that's pointing to the left next to the question and it would add it over into the questions in our quiz.

Adding questions to a quiz

The next step in setting up our quiz is to begin adding the questions that we created inside of our question bank into this quiz. So make sure you are inside of your quiz and then select the Edit tab. We next want to select the Category of questions that we want to pull from. In our case, we want the Default for Coral Reef Ecology. This will bring up a listing of all of the questions that we have created in the previous exercises. Next, we'll go through and check the box next to all the questions that we want to add. In our case, we'll add all of the questions except for the 0103015 and 016 questions. If we wanted to add an individual question, we could press the double-headed arrow that's pointing to the left next to the question and it would add it over into the questions in our quiz.

But since we are going to add of the questions, we'll check all of the boxes for the questions that we want to use, then scrolling down, we'll click on the button for Add to quiz. That adds all the different questions that we have selected into our quiz. We can then control the order of the questions by clicking the Up and Down arrows. In our case, we want to have the essay question that we wrote to show up at the very bottom of our quiz. So we'll click the Down arrow several times in order to move the Essay question down to the bottom.

If we want to control the order of any of the other questions, we could move those up by simply selecting the question that we want, in this case the Multiple Choice question and clicking the Up arrow and it will move that question up to the top. We have a listing of what all the grade values for each question are. We can change each value here, if we would like. We'll go and leave all of our set to 1. This gives us a total of points. We can then set the Maximum grade for this quiz to whatever value that we want. In our case, we'll set this to 8 as well.

Next, we'll click the button for Save changes and our quiz has been saved. Now that you have added all the questions to your quiz, the next step is to preview your quiz to make sure everything is working as you want it to. To do that, simply go up to the upper right hand corner and click on the Preview tab. This will load up your quiz and will give you the experience of what the student would see if they were taking your exam. Since we have set up a timer on your quiz, we can see that we have got a timer running up here in the corner. We can then scroll down and begin taking the exam.

Each question can then be clicked on. Diploria labyrinthiformis. We'll click the Back button and since that's the correct answer, we'll check that box then click Submit. We'll then go to the next question down at the bottom by clicking the Next button, where we can select the correct name for each of our different organisms. In this case we have got Mithrax sculptus, Porites asteroides, Acropora palmata. We'll click the Submit button. We can see that we've got all of those correct.

We will go to the Next button. Here we are seeing our question that we imported from Blackboard, What specific type of body cavity is found in the organism depicted in the figure above? We'll scroll down and select acoelomate. Click the Submit button. That's correct. We'll come down and click the Next button. Hermatypic corals have a relatively specific temperature range. We can give any temperature range between 18 and 32 degrees. So we'll give it 28, hit Submit.

That answer is correct. We will go to the next question. Next we have our video that's being pulled in from YouTube that we can click on to play. We can scroll down and see the image of the Green Moray and we can give the answer of Gymnothorax funebris. We'll click the Submit button and we scroll down, we can see we get this one correct as well.

Then go to the next question. Here we are given the choice of 'Hermatypic corals and zooxanthellae had a symbiotic relationship.' That's true. We'll click Submit. That is Correct. So we'll go down to the next question. Here we are seeing the sponge Aplysina fistularis and that is in fact the sponge that we are seeing, so we'll go ahead and select True and Submit. This gives a correct answer. We can scroll down a little further. Click Next. Here we are pulling in our map directly from Google Maps. We can grab and move around inside of the map if we need to. We can change between the Terrain view and the Satellite view and go back to the Terrain view. Then scroll down and answer the question that was being asked describing the formation of one of these two reefs. In our case, we'll simply say 'A barrier reef grows parallel to the shoreline and in a perpendicular direction away from shore. ' We'll then scroll down and click the Submit button and scroll all the way to the bottom and then click the Submit all and finish.

We are given a warning that says, "You are about to close this attempt. Once you close the attempt, you will no longer be able to change your answers." That's fine. We'll say OK and we can see that our Grade has been given to us of 7 out of 8. Now you may be wondering how come we only got 7 out of 8? We solve that all the answers were correct. If you remember the last question is an essay question and an essay question would need to be graded by the teacher or faculty member before the grade get entered officially into the Grade Book so that it would appear correct. The overall feedback were given is "Great job" because we didn't set any other parameters for any other feedback for any other percentage ranges.

Let's go ahead and return to your course by clicking on the BIOL432 button in the upper left hand corner and now you should be able to create your own categories, add questions to those categories, then create a quiz and add the appropriate questions to that quiz so that your students can complete an online assessment inside of Moodle.
