Course Materials: Test/Quiz (Students)

Test/Quiz is a graded material type that instructors use to assess their students' comprehension and readiness. Students can access their tests/quizzes from anywhere they can access other graded materials:

  • The Materials list on the main Course page
  • The Upcoming feed
  • The Calendar
  • The Notifications feed

    If you're using Schoology Basic, your instructor does not have the option to create a Test/Quiz.

Tests/Quizzes are composed of the following question types:

  • True/False
  • Multiple Choice
  • Ordering
  • Short-Answer/Essay Questions
  • Fill in the Blank
  • Matching
