One of the most versatile tools at your disposal is SmarterU's quiz task.
Quizzes are an important tool for measuring your student’s understanding. You can have as many quizzes as you like within a course.
A quiz, versus an “exam” does not transfer a mark for the course, or appear on certificates.
If you already know how to create a quiz, you can easily create a final exam for your course that records the learner's mark.
Creating a final exam is similar to setting up a quiz, but there are a few key things to remember:
- A final exam MUST be the last task in the course. If any tasks are after the final exam, the mark for the course will not be transferred and will appear as 0%.
- The learner's mark for the course will be the mark they earn on their last attempt at the final quiz. If the learner takes a final quiz more than once, only their mark for the last attempt will be recorded.
Just keep these points in mind and you'll be assessing your learners' understanding with final exams in no time!
