What is a video quiz, and how can I use it?
Media Gallery includes a video quizzing feature that allows you to insert questions into a video. While playing the video, it will pause where there is a question, and a student must either answer or skip the question to continue.
Note: A video quiz should be used as a supplement to a video, not as a full-featured assessment. See below caveats for use.
Features of a video quiz
When you start playing a video with a quiz, a Welcome screen will display, indicating that you will be given a quiz. On the Welcome screen:
- You can download a Pre-test, a PDF listing the quiz questions.
- Select Continue to start the video.
Question display in timeline
Quiz questions display as hexagons with numbers in the video's timeline. If enabled in the quiz settings, you can select a question number to skip to it.
Individual question screens
Different types of questions have different answer formats.
- The most common question types are multiple choice and true/false, where you select an answer to continue the video.
- If enabled in the quiz settings, a Skip for Now option allows you to skip a question you plan to answer later.
End quiz button
When all the questions have been answered, an End Quiz button displays. You can use this button to skip to the quiz submission screen.
The submission screen will ask you to Review your answers (replay the video) or Submit.
Caveats for Use
Please note the following:
- Students must answer all the questions in a video quiz to submit it.
- Making changes to a quiz that a student has already submitted can result in incorrect grades. If you edit a quiz with a submission, you may need to delete the student's attempt to allow the student to retake it.
- Some students with disabilities may not be able to operate the controls within a video quiz; you may need to create an alternative assignment for these students.
- Grades for video quizzes are always out of 100 points. The grade is calculated as a percentage, based on correct answers to Multiple Choice and True/False questions. If an Open Question or Reflection Point is included in the quiz, students get full credit for answering the question.
- By default, only the owner of a video quiz can access students' submissions. To allow other instructors or teaching assistants to view submissions, follow the steps to add them as co-editors on your video quiz.
