Click Search to search for evaluations from the selected LO types. All LOs for which there is a corresponding level evaluation appear below the search options in the pop-up.

All existing evaluation questions from the corresponding evaluation level appear in the Questions panel in the Search Questions pop-up. Preview a question by clicking the Preview icon in the View column. Note: Any new questions added using the Add Question icon append to that specific section of the evaluation.

Add Question from Search Questions Pop-up

To add a question:

Done

Click Done when all desired questions are placed in the Selected Questions panel. The questions appear under the section title. You can reorder by changing the number in the Order column. The question type appears in the Type column.

Response Required - Select this option to require users to answer the corresponding question.

The following options appear in the Options column for each question:

  • Preview - Click the Preview icon to view the question.
  • Edit - Click the Edit icon to edit an existing question. Note: If a question has already been answered by a user, you cannot change the response type or format of the question; you may only edit the spelling or phrasing. The response type drop-down will be inactive, and the links to add response choices or sub-questions will not appear. Editing a question changes that question in all tests the question has been used. A best practice is to make changes to the grammar or correct errors but not change the meaning or structure of the question.
  • Remove - Click the Remove icon to remove a question from the section.

Display

By default, all questions in the section are displayed to the user. To only display a portion of the questions, click the Edit icon in the Display column. Then, enter the number of questions that should be displayed in the section. Click the Save icon to save the new display value.

Displaying only a portion of the questions allows you to create a unique evaluation experience for each evaluation attempt. For example, there are 10 questions in a section, but only five are displayed. If another user completes the evaluation, then that user may see different questions in their evaluation.

Submit

Click Submit to finalize the evaluation.
