On August 8th, D2L at Canisius will be getting a few new screens for quiz construction, and an easier-to-use “question pool” alternative to random sections. If you use quizzes in D2L, these new features will be fairly intuitive to figure out. You can still opt out of these new screens, at least until December, but we think you will find them quicker to use than the old screens and random section operation.
If you haven’t tried building and using quizzes in D2L, now is a good time to start. A short quiz can act as a quick worksheet exercise to encourage careful, critical reading (or watching) of sources that are important for your class. Since they are online, you needn’t waste precious class time on them, either. Here’s a quick video showing you how to set up a simple, low-stakes quiz for your students.
And this video shows specifically how to construct multiple choice questions for a quiz.
