What are Quizzes?

Quizzes in the Astria LMS are assignments that can be used to challenge student understanding and assess comprehension of course material. The quiz tool is used to create and administer online quizzes and surveys. You can also use quizzes to conduct and moderate exams and assessments, both graded and ungraded.

When would I use Quizzes?

You can use Quizzes to:

  • Create new quizzes with individual questions and question groups

  • Set up question banks

  • Import external quizzes

  • Show one quiz question at a time

  • Create quizzes with varied due dates



There are four different types of quizzes:

  • A graded quiz is the most common quiz, and the Astria LMS automatically creates a column in the Gradebook for any graded quizzes you build.

  • A practice quiz is ungraded and can be used as a learning tool to help students see how well they understand the course material. Practice quizzes do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.

  • A graded survey allows you to give students points for completing the survey; however, it is not graded based on right or wrong answers.

  • An ungraded survey allows you to obtain opinions or other information from students; however, students do not receive a grade for their responses. Ungraded surveys do not appear in the syllabus or Gradebook.
