Does this do summative assessment?

Yes the quiz can record answers if a quiz is deployed. If you deploy an individual question feedback is given but responses are not saved. This can be very useful for formative assessment.

How do I use this tool?

To display a question.

  1. Create a question pot (questions must be stored in a question pot)

  2. Create your questions within the pot.

  3. Each question has its own shortcode which can be pasted into a post or page OR you can use the 'in editor' button to select a specific question if you are unsure how to use shortcodes.

To deploy a quiz.

  1. Create a new quiz and choose to display 'x' questions from pot 1 and (for example) 'x' questions at random from pot 2.

  2. Copy the quiz shortcode onto a page or use the 'in editor' button to add the quiz

The quiz saves the HIGHEST score and quizzes can be taken as often as possible, or you can limit attempts if you wish. It will only save the score if a user is logged in.

A results screen shows the highest score achieved by each registered user.

Can anonymous users take a quiz

Yes, but results won't be stored in the database
