What is Tests & Quizzes?
Tests & Quizzes is used to create online assessments (i.e., tests, exams, quizzes, and surveys) to administer in a web interface to students, groups, or other site members. Though primarily designed to administer assessments such as exams or quizzes, site owners may also use assessments as surveys to gather responses or informal feedback. Assessments can be created question by question, through markup text, or through importing a properly-formatted XML file.
Tests & Quizzes offers many settings that allow instructors to control the layout, delivery, grading, student review options, and metadata of the assessment. These settings can be adjusted when authoring or editing an assessment.
Assessments in Tests & Quizzes fall into the two categories: Draft Copies and Published Copies, which represent the instructor and student phases, respectively. Authoring by the instructor takes place in Draft Copies; a new assessment appears as Draft. The act of publishing makes the assessment available to students and identifies the assessment in the Published Copies category, where submissions and results become available.
