Add a Quiz to the CLE

The Quiz activity in the CLE is a robust online assessment tool that can be used for self-evaluations, tests, exams, mid-terms, and finals.

A quiz is made up of a combination of question types, including multiple-choice, true-false, short answer, essay, and more. The Quiz activity pulls questions from a question bank, which faculty and course staff can use to create, preview, edit, and organize questions in any number of categories.

After students have completed a quiz, faculty and course staff have access to a number of reports, including a statistical analysis of the quiz. The majority of question-types are automatically graded in the CLE, except for essay questions that require manual grading.
