Last modified:


Quizzes are the most versatile component, allowing the creation of all types of questions and activities, from evaluable quizzes to reinforcement activities throughout the units.

Each editing mode allows different actions to be performed with the questionnaires

Easy mode:

  • Configure the introduction and closing of the questionnaire
  • Add activities
  • Duplicate or delete activities
  • Move activities from one position to another.
  • Modify the cut-off score and the calculation method. 
  • Define if it is an evaluable quiz or not. 
  • Set the number of attempts
  • Set a time limit
  • Modify completeness requirements
  • Add automatic events.


Professional mode:

  • Add a questionnaire within rows
  • Move position
  • Duplicate or delete
  • Modify the visibility of the questionnaire

Configure the introduction and closing of the quiz.

Quizzes can have an introduction screen (useful for giving initial instructions to the student) and a closing screen (usually used to indicate to the student whether or not he/she has passed the quiz). 

Depending on the topic chosen, you can have different types of quizzes. 

Usually quizzes with several questions show these two screens, but, for example, to show individual reinforcement activities throughout the unit it will be more common for these two screens to be hidden. 


As an Easy mode author you should click on any element within the quiz (a text, an image...) and you will see that, in the upper area of the screen, a blue button is enabledl.

When you click on it, you will access the properties tab of the questionnaire, where you will see the "Blocks" area.

In this area you will be able to activate or deactivate the introduction and closing by simply pressing this option: 

Image 47839

By clicking on the introduction block or on the closing block you will access its content, you will be able to configure its content, according to the components that have been added by the Designer to the questionnaire template. 
For example, you can configure the introduction text and/or image, the start button, the texts of the final feedbacks, the text of the buttons to make a new attempt .... etc.

Adding activities

In a questionnaire you can add as many activities as you need. 

As an Easy mode author, click on any element within the compound (a text, an image...) and you will see a blue button at the top of the screen.

When you click on it, you will access the properties tab of the compound, where you will see the "Blocks" area.

Image 47838

Then click on the "Add activity" button and choose one of the available activity types. Depending on each topic, you will have different templates available for each type of activity.

After adding the activity, you can access it by clicking on its block and configure its content.

To see how to configure each type of activity, see its specific article: 

- Single Choice

- Multiple choice

- Text input

- Linking

- Sequence



Duplicate or delete activities

If you want to create a copy of one of the existing activities or delete it, click on the menu of each activity and choose the correct option.

Move the activities to a new position

You can reposition and move activities by dragging them from this button and dropping them in the new position.

Modifying the cut-off mark and the calculation method

In the properties of the quiz, in the "Settings" area, you have two properties that allow you to define the cut-off mark required to pass the quiz and how the mark will be calculated. 

Image 47875


  • Percentage of success. Here you define the percentage needed to pass the quiz. Remember that the cut-off mark of the quiz is not the same as the cut-off mark of the unit. If there is only one quiz in your unit, it is logical that both cut-off marks coincide. 
  • Calculation method. There are two ways of calculating the grade achieved by the students: 
    • By the points of the activities. With this method the total grade is calculated by adding the partial grades obtained in each activity. It is not necessary to answer all the questions correctly in their entirety. Partial correct answers are also taken into account. Thus, if an activity has four options and you correctly mark two of them, you will be awarded half of the grade assigned for the activity. 
    • For activities passed. In this case, only the activities passed in their entirety are taken into account, partial passes are not added up. If you have 8 activities and 4 of them are correct, the grade will be 50%.       


Check this video to understand correctly both calculation methods. 

Define whether it is an evaluable questionnaire or not

In the properties of the quiz, in the "Settings" area, you have the property "Evaluable". If you activate this option, the score of this quiz will be used for the calculation of the total grade of the unit and will be sent to the training platform. If you deactivate the option, it will not be taken into account for the overall grade calculation. This is usual to create reinforcement activities throughout the unit.

Setting the number of attempts

In the properties of the quiz, in the "Settings" area, you have two properties to define the number of attempts the student will have to answer the quiz: 

Image 47877

- Unlimited attempts. If this option is enabled, unlimited attempts will be provided to the student to answer the questionnaire.

- Number of attempts. If the Unlimited attempts option is disabled, you can set a specific number of attempts. 


Marcar un tiempo límite. 

En las propiedades del cuestionario, en la zona "Ajustes", se puede establecer un tiempo límite para completar el cuestionario. Cuando el tiempo se agota, el cuestionario se finaliza, ya no se puede seguir contestando ni realizar más intentos. 

Solo es recomendable activar esta funcionalidad si el cuestionario incorpora una barra de progreso para poder mostrar el tiempo disponible. 

Image 47878

Las propiedades que dispones son: 

- Límite de tiempo. Puedes establecer el tiempo deseado en segundos. Recuerda que el tiempo aplica a todo el cuestionario, no es un tiempo para cada intento. 

- Pausar el contador de tiempo. Esta opción te permite definir si el tiempo no se para en ninguna circunstancia o si se parará en alguna situación: al cambiar de página en la unidad, al cerrarla, etc. Es recomendable establecer al menos un criterio de pausa, por ejemplo cuando se cierra la unidad. 


Modify the completeness requirements

For a questionnaire to be considered completed, the student must complete a series of "tasks" called objectives, with a choice between

- Respond, i.e., it will be sufficient to answer the questionnaire, regardless of whether or not it is passed

- Pass or finish, i.e., it will be necessary to pass the cut-off mark or, failing that, to exhaust the attempts of the questionnaire.

As an author you can decide to specify generic objectives for all unit compounds in the unit configuration area, or you can define these objectives in more detail, questionnaire by questionnaire.

In this case you can decide:

  • Not a target. The component is not a target of the unit. If you do not interact with it, it will not be taken into account in the unit completeness calculation.
  • Answer questionnaire. You need to answer at least once the quiz, regardless of whether you pass it or not. 
  • Pass or Finish. The objectives will be completed in one of two scenarios: 
    • As soon as the student passes the cut score.
    • Or upon completion of the quiz. Completion can occur, for example, when all available attempts are exhausted or after pressing a "Finish" button. 
  • As configured at unit level. This option "delegates" the decision whether it is a target or not to the overall unit configuration.


Adding events

Events are automated actions that you want to occur after a specific trigger.

Select the questionnaire and click the "Add event" option in the "Properties" tab.


You will be able to choose between 3 triggers:

- When the questionnaire is passed.

- When the questionnaire is not passed.

- When the completeness requirements have been met.

When this trigger is executed, the actions that may occur are:

- That a pop-up window is displayed.

- A notification is displayed.

Remember that, after configuring the event, you must press the "SAVE" button.

Adding a new questionnaire

With the Professional editing mode you can add new questionnaires.

To do so, you have the + button located at the bottom left.

Image 47089

Image 47891

You will be able to choose from the templates that have been determined for the theme you are using.



Remember that any component you add will always be inside a row, so you have two ways to add a new questionnaire.

- Select an existing element on the screen (a row, a text, an image...). Then, simply add the desired component by clicking on it. It will be added below the selected element (or as the last element of the row).

- Drag the component to the screen. By moving the mouse pointer over the elements on the screen you can decide where to place the component. To help you, color-coded bars will be displayed:

Moving a position questionnaire

With the Professional editing mode you can move a component by position.

All you have to do is select it by clicking on its label and use the initial icon to drag the item.

Image 47892

Remember that to help you choose the desired position, color-coded bars will be displayed:

- Blue: will move creating a new section.

- Orange: will move creating a new row.

- Green: will move creating a new column.

- Gray: it will move under another existing element.


Duplicate or delete questionnaire

Select the component and, from its label, you can duplicate or delete it.

Modify the visibility of the questionnaire

You can decide whether a questionnaire is visible or not according to the condition you decide. Click on "Add condition".

Image 47888

Here you can decide which object/component will be used as a referent and then you can decide which trigger will make the questionnaire visible. Depending on the object you choose, you will have different triggers. For example, you could make a quiz visible after viewing a previous video or audio...
