- Log in to Brightspace with your MyCarletonOne credentials.
- On the Brightspace homepage, locate your course in one of the following ways:
- Click on the course tile under the My Courses widget.

- In the navbar, click Tools.
- Select Quizzes from the drop-down menu
- Under the Manage Quizzes tab, click New Quiz.
- On the New Quiz page, enter your quiz details under the following headings:
- Enter a name for your quiz.
- Under Category you have the option to categorize your quiz. Associating a category with a quiz allows quizzes to be grouped by category in the quiz list page.
- To categorize your quiz in an existing category, select the category from the drop-down menu.
- To create a new category, click Add category and enter a category name.
- Quiz Questions
- To add questions to your quiz, click Add/Edit Questions. You will see the following options:
- Add – create a new question, question section, or question pool.
|WARNING: We strongly recommend creating your questions in the Question Library before you create your quiz. Quiz questions can be stored in the Question Library for re-use in multiple quizzes or in other types of assessments, such as self-assessments for student practice and studying. You can create your quiz questions in a Question Library section that can be easily imported into your quiz.
- Import – add questions from the Question library or upload a file.
- Once you have added questions to your quiz, the following options will appear:
- Questions per page – When used, this parameter will control how many questions are placed on a page for presentation purposes; otherwise the entire quiz will appear on the same page.
- Paging – When this option is enabled, users taking the quiz will only be able to move forward through pages. They will not be allowed to move to a previous page once they have left it.
- Shuffle questions at the quiz level – This will shuffle your quiz questions.
- Description/introduction (optional)
- Add a quiz description or introduction that will be shown before quiz availability.
- Page Header/Footer (optional)
- Add a page header or footer that will be shown at above or below every quiz page.
- Optional Advanced Properties
- Allow Hints
- Disable Email, Instant Messages and alerts – students will not be able to access email, messaging, or alerts if they have a quiz attempt in progress.
- Under the Restrictions tab, you have the following options:
- Hide from Users – This option is selected by default so your quiz is hidden while you are setting it up.
- Due Date – The due date indicates the quiz deadline to students. If a quiz is submitted after the due date, the submission will be flagged as late. Brightspace quizzes do not require a Due Date. Start and End Dates are recommended for determining the timeframe in which students can take the quiz.
- Start and End Dates – Start/End dates determine the timeframe in which students can take the quiz.
- Select the Has Start Date checkbox to set a Start Date for the quiz, then enter the date and time.
- Select the Has End Date checkbox to set an End Date for the quiz, and enter the date and time.
- The End Date is the last possible time a student can start a quiz. For example, if a quiz Start time is 1:00pm and the End date is 2:30pm, then students can start the quiz from 1:00 until 2:30 and still have the full time limit set for the quiz.
- The best practice is to set the End time for 15-20 minutes after the Start time and to let students know that they can only start the quiz within that time frame.
- Students who experience internet issues after the End Time will need to be readmitted to the quiz by the instructor through Special Access.
- If a due date was set, click Display in Calendar to make the due date visible to students in the course calendar.
- Release Conditions – See the Creating Release Conditions page for instructions.
- Timing – This option allows you to choose between No Time Limit, Recommended Time Limit and an Enforced Time Limit.
- The No Time Limit option is selected by default. Students have unlimited time to complete the quiz, and there is no clock / timer while taking the quiz. (Start, End, and Due Dates for the quiz are still respected.)
- Select Recommended Time Limit and enter the number of minutes to indicate how long it should take to complete the quiz while still allowing the student as much time as they need. (Start, End, and Due Dates, as well as Accommodations are still respected.)
- To set a time limit for students to complete the quiz, select Enforced Time Limit.
- Enter the number of minutes students are allowed to complete the quiz.
- Enter a Grace Period. The grace period is the amount of time students have to submit after the time limit before the submission is marked as late. This additional time may be helpful for students experiencing internet connection issues.
- Select one of the following grace period options:
- Allow the student to continue working. The student can make changes and submit after the grace period. The quiz will be flagged as late.
- Prevent the student from making further changes. The student will not be able to make changes once the grace period is over and can only submit.
- Allow the student to continue working, but automatically score the attempt as zero after an extended deadline – The student can continue to make changes and submit after the grace period but the quiz attempt will automatically be given a zero.
- Under the Assessment tab, you have the following options:
- Auto-publish attempt results immediately upon completion. When this setting enabled, learners will be able to view their evaluated attempt immediately upon submission. “Submission Views” settings control what is displayed to learners, e.g., whether correct answers are shown.
|NOTE: Questions that cannot be evaluated by the system (e.g., written response questions) will be scored as zero until manually evaluated. We do not recommend enabling the Auto-Publish setting when there are questions that require manual grading since the quiz grade initially released to the student would be incomplete and may cause confusion. When grading is complete, quizzes can be manually published from the Grade page for the quiz.
- Synchronize to Grade Book. Automatically update evaluations in grade book when published. With this setting enabled, the learner’s overall grade and overall feedback will be automatically published to the grade book once it has been evaluated.
|NOTE: This setting requires the quiz to be linked to the grade book. For more information, refer to our instructions on how to link a quiz to a Grade Item.
When the Auto-Publish and Synchronize settings are both enabled, the quiz grade and feedback are released to the student in the Quizzes tool and the Gradebook as soon as they submit their quiz. To prevent students from seeing their quiz grade before you are ready:
- Edit the default Submission View to remove the “Show attempt score and overall attempt score” setting.
- Hide the Grade Item.
See our support site on Showing/Hiding Grades for instructions on how to hide grade items
