D2L Quizzes

Setting up Quizzes Questions:


How do I set up a quiz in Brightspace by D2L?

There are three options for devising a quiz within Brightspace by D2L.

1. Building the quiz from scratch within D2L (works best if you have 10 or less questions or if the quiz is essay-based)

2. Building the quiz using Respondus and sending it into D2L (works best if you have a lot of questions and most are multiple choice)

3. Building the quiz using a publisher's test bank (look on your publisher's website to see if there is a test bank for your book)

How do I give students special access to the quiz (for ADA purposes)?

By giving students special access to a quiz, you can allow them to take the quiz on a different date or give them a longer amount of time to complete the quiz (or both).

How do I view the quiz statistics and regrade (edit) the quiz?

The process should be to:

1. View the quiz statistics

2. Perform any re-grading (throwing out questions, etc).

3. Updating the quiz (if a question was keyed incorrectly)

1. ProctorU: With this service, the completion of the quiz is monitored by ProctorU employees. Any incidents are reported to the instructor. ProctorU does cost the student an extra fee and it is integrated into D2L.

2. Remote Proctor Now: With this service, Remote Proctor Now representatives review the quiz after it has been completed by students. Breaches of academic integrity are reported to the instructor.
