Quizzes - New Quiz Builder

The new Quiz Builder experience is now available for use. The Quiz Builder is a new work flow for adding, editing, reordering, and deleting quiz content in the Quizzes tool. 

Quiz Builder saves instructors time by streamlining the screens and work flows for building and arranging quiz content. Instructors can add questions, sections and question pools, or import from the Question library. From a single interface, they can edit, delete and reorder questions. They can also review critical information such as question points and total points in the quiz; mandatory and bonus status and shuffling behavior.

Please see here for the extensive manual for the quiz builder.


Grades - Tab delimited import into Gradebook

Instructors can now import tab separated value (.tsv) files into Gradebook.
