As an admin or content owner, you want people to be able to measure their own learning or expertise around a topic or you want to assess the effectiveness of your content.
Create or edit an assessment, following these steps. (But first, make sure you have enabled assessments for your instance of PlusPlus.)
From the Catalog, click New and select Assessment from the menu.
The New Assessment page opens to Details & Settings.
Add details about the assessment, including a Title and Description.
Go deeper to see more details you can configure for assessments.
Specify a Feedback Policy to determine how assessment takers see whether their answers are correct. Options will be:
Provide feedback after assessment completion - assessment takers see if they answered questions correctly after they've completed the whole assessment
Provide feedback after each question - assessment takers see if they were correct after answering each question
In future releases, you will also have the option to have assessment takers retry questions until they get them correct.
Optionally, set a Passing Grade for the assessment.
Turn on the Passing Grade toggle and set the percentage of correct answered needed for passing.
Click Assessment Questions to add or edit questions on the assessment.
You can do the following:
Click Add question to create a new multiple choice or short answer question.
In future releases, you will also be able to add an existing question to your assessment from a question bank. The question bank will include all questions previously created for any assessment.
Click Add section to add a section to the assessment for organizational purposes.
Click Publish (or Save if you are editing an existing assessment).
