Quiz Tools

Create a quiz, survey, or self-assessment, review the results, and see class statistics.


The Quiz tool creates and manages quiz assessments. You can use these tools to help evaluate student progress and learning outcomes. Once you receive completed quizzes from your students, you can view statistics such as grade distribution, grade average, question statistics, and user statistics. There are many different question types available in VU Collaborate, so you can choose the ones that best suit your course content.

The Question Library is a central repository that stores and archives questions which you can share and reuse for all assessment tools within a unit. You can create multiple collections within the Question Library to organise your questions by type and topic, making it easier for you to find questions for your quizzes, surveys, and self-assessments. We recommend that you create all questions (whether for a quiz, self-assessment or survey) in the Question Library first for storage and easy access later.

The Self Assessment tool enables you to provide students with a series of questions, similar to a quiz, with immediate feedback for their responses. Question types available are similar to quizzes, however, student responses are not graded and self-assessment questions do not have a points value or difficulty level indication. The omission of numeric evaluation enables students to make reflective learning and unit material comprehension their main priorities during a self-assessment.

The Survey tool is an excellent way to solicit feedback from users regarding any aspect of your unit. For example, they can be used as a method of collecting unit evaluations, mid-year reviews, or researching users' learning style and content delivery preferences.
