To create and import quizzes

  1. Build your quizzes in advance in a CSV file based on the following format:
    You must add the words Not a quiz to the last line. The first row, Row 1, should include the headers for the file's columns:
    • Quiz Name - This is the name of the quiz that displays like the file name.
    • Question Type (Multiple Choice, Multiple Answers, Open Answer) - The Question Type column shows the only options that can be used as values in the cells. Any departure from those exact values will return an error.
    • Questions - This is the question for the quiz.
    • Answers - These are the answer values.
      • The order of the values is maintained in the quiz import. Be certain that the order of the quiz values is set here. 

      • Multiple Choice and Multiple Answers question types can have up to 6 answer options. Answer options may not be blank or spaces.

      • Only questions that are Open Answer do not include a value.

    • Correct Answer
      • Correct and incorrect answer values must be added for all answer options related to the Multiple Choice and Multiple Answers.

      • The possible values are either Y for the correct answer or N for the incorrect answer.

      • Multiple Choice questions must only have one Y while Multiple Answers may have multiple Y answer values.

      • Open Answer questions do not have an answer value.
