Pro Tip: If you have a Premium account, you must Tag your Quizzes to your state curriculum whenever possible; otherwise, the student data will not populate your Mastery Dashboards.

Answer Explanation: If a student answers a question wrong, you can have an explanation appear before moving to the next question.

Subtopic/Skill: The topic or skill the question tests. After the quiz, you will be able to see your students' level of proficiency for the different subtopics you've tagged. For even better data insights, click 'Align quiz to standard or topic' to match your quiz and its questions to your school's specific curriculum.

If your quiz is aligned to a curriculum, a drop-down of curriculum skills will provide options to select for the question.

You can enter custom subtopics if your quiz is not aligned with a curriculum.

Duration: The length of time students have to answer the question. The default setting is 30 seconds, but you can adjust it from 5 seconds to 5 minutes.

The timer affects a student's score. However, when you assign the quiz to your class, you can turn off the timer altogether. You can find out more about it here.

Add Image: Upload an image to accompany your question or answers. The maximum file size is 5Mb.

Add Audio: Upload an audio file to accompany your question. The maximum file size is 5Mb.

Read aloud: Toggle this on to give the students an option to have the question and answers read aloud. Learn more here.

You can rearrange the question order by clicking the up and down arrows, duplicating a question, and editing or deleting one.

When you've completed your quiz, click the Save and give to class button to assign it to your class right away or the Save to my library to give it to your class later.
