Quizzes created with LATTE’s built-in Quiz tool can be used to administer assessments and evaluate student understanding of course material. A LATTE Quiz consists of a Quiz activity that contains one or more questions from the course's Question Bank.
Quizzes can be used for a wide range of assessments – from simple knowledge checks to comprehensive exams. Based on the question types, timing options, and visibility settings you choose, a LATTE Quiz can fill a variety of assessment needs.
A Quiz Activity, which can be added from the + Add an activity or resource menu, serves as the container for the assessment and determines when and how the assessment will be accessed. Quiz settings can be modified to set a time limit, allow for one or multiple attempts per student, determine when points and correct answers are displayed to students, and more.
All questions that are created in or imported into a course are stored in that course's Question Bank, where they can be retrieved to be used and reused in Quiz Activities in the same course. Every LATTE course has a Question Bank. This is where all the questions created in the course are stored for review, editing, and reuse in Quiz Activities.
For ease of use, the Question Bank can be organized with Categories. A new question Category is created for each Quiz Activity in the course; you can organize and nest these Categories and create manual question Categories not associated with a particular quiz from the Categories tab in the Question Bank. Individual questions can then be moved into specific Categories to keep them organized and streamline the process of adding them to Quiz Activities.
Questions make up the content of a Quiz. There are a variety of question types, including multiple-choice, matching, and calculated questions. Most question types in LATTE are designed for automatic grading and have specific question and answer parameters, but Essay questions must be graded manually. Explore the list of question types to find the ones that work best for your assessment needs.
The first step to building a LATTE Quiz is to create the Quiz Activity, which will serve as the container for your questions and control various settings about how the Quiz will behave.
The Quiz Activity has been created and is ready to be populated with questions. Proceed to Step 2: Adding Questions when ready.
Once the Quiz Activity is created, it can be populated with questions. You can create new questions as you add them to the Quiz, or you can bring in already-created questions from your course Question Bank.
