How to Add a Quiz in MemberPress Courses
Once you've installed and activated the MemberPress Courses add-on, you'll be able to create quizzes in any of your existing or new courses. To learn how to install Courses, check out Getting Started with MemberPress Courses.
You'll find all the settings for Quizzes under the Courses Settings tab. Go to your WordPress dashboard > MemberPress > Courses. Click on the course where you'd like the quiz to be, and click Settings. You'll see the new Quizzes options there:
Now let's see what each of these settings does.
Require Previous Lesson/Quiz
Enable this option if you want to require students to complete a previous lesson/quiz before they can gain access to the next lesson/quiz.
Note: The first lesson of a section will require completion of the last lesson/quiz of the previous section.
Show Question Results
Selecting this option will allow students to see whether an answer is correct or incorrect. Disable this option if you don't want students to know which questions they answered correctly.
Show Question answers
Select this option if you want to show students the correct answers after they complete the quiz.
Creating your first quiz
Creating a quiz in an existing lesson is easy! To get starred, open your course, then select the Curriculum tab > Add Quiz. Then give your quiz a name.
As you build and customize your quiz, you'll use several types of pre-built blocks within the Quizzes editor. To find these blocks, click on the + sign.
Select a block, and that quiz box will appear in the Quizzes editor. From there, you can edit and customize.
Now we'll go over the block types and how you can use them to create your quiz.
Multiple Choice Block
Here, you can write a question, add multiple answer choices, and indicate a single correct answer.
On the right, you'll see where you can label the question as "required" and add feedback your students will see if they choose an incorrect answer.
Multiple Answer Question Block
This block allows you to write a question, add multiple answers, and mark multiple correct answers.
True/False Question Block
This block is as straightforward as it gets. Write a phrase, then indicate whether "true" or "false" is the correct response.
Short Answer Block
Using the short answer block, you write a question or prompt, and your student is given a field where they can provide a short written answer.
With this block, you write a question or prompt and indicate the minimum/maximum number of characters required. As with the short answer block, your student is shown a field where they can type a response. The student sees an alert if the response is not within the indicated number or characters.
Quiz Completion Rules
In the Quizzes editor, you can set rules for quiz completion. If you set a question as "required" and the student doesn't answer that question, the student will be shown a message informing them that they must answer that question to submit the quiz.
If a student submits a quiz but doesn't earn enough points to pass, they won't be able to access and edit their answers. And you won't be able to edit the quiz. If you try to edit the quiz, you'll see a popup box.
If you'd like to give the student an opportunity to retake the quiz, you'll need to click Delete button in the popup to remove the student's attempts. You can click the already has attempts link if you'd like to view the student's attempts.
You can also view a student's attempts directly from your quiz. Just hover over the quiz, and check the View Attempts link. Once there, you can also preview and edit your quiz.
Note: Quizzes are fully customizable. Text and images can be added to create consistency with your theme and brand. Reach out to one of our trusted partners if you'd like help with customizing your MemberPress site in any way!
