Desirable New Features in New Quizzes

Last Updated 3/26/2024 The New Quizzes has some desirable new features, many of them requested by Stanford faculty and staff who use Classic Quizzes.

  • Duplicate Quiz - Easy one-click option to duplicate quizzes in actions menu. In Classic Quizzes, a copy of a quiz can only be created with the Import Course Content or Copy feature. If more than one copy was made this way in the same course, it overwrites the first copy made, wiping out any edits. The duplicate feature in New Quizzes does not cause any of these problems.
  • Duplicate Question - Easy one-click option to create a copy of a question in the build mode of New Quizzes. To create a copy of a question in Classic Quizzes, it needs to be imported from the question bank. The method in New Quizzes is much easier.

  • Print Quiz - Instructors can print three versions of a quiz: Print for Students to Take (blank, no answer key), Print as Student Answered (showing submitted answers of particular student, as well as answer key and feedback), Print as Sample Answer Key (shows correct answers only, no feedback)

  • Reopen Student's Last Submission - Instructor can allow a student to edit and resubmit their last submission. In Classic Quizzes, instructors can only allow students a new (blank) attempt, but there is no way for a student to edit their previous work.

  • New Question Types: Categorization, Ordering, Hot Spot, Stimulus (text block prefacing one or more questions)
  • Improvements to Question Types: Essay question has option for setting word limit (min and/or max), fill in the blank question type has word bank option to allow students to drag/drop answers to blanks.

  • New Settings: Require Waiting Period Between Attempts, Shuffle Questions Globally, Shuffle Answers per Question (this option is now customizable for each question, whereas the option applies to either all questions or none in Classic Quizzes)

  • Student Accommodations: Ability to add extra time (or remove time limit) for a particular student to all quizzes in a course.

  • Student Feedback: More granular options, so students can be shown their own responses without showing them scores or correct answer designations (these are tied together in Classic Quizzes).
