What is a Quiz?

A Quiz is a set of questions that you create for a course. It is a comprehensive assessment that includes questions based on the overall course content - course introduction, concepts, and exercises for a course. 
You can have only one quiz for a course. You need to activate a quiz for the quiz to be available for a course on the LMS Portal. 

Quiz questions:

  • Are of two types:
    • Random - LMS auto selects the specified number of questions from the Questions module.
