Creating A Quiz Activity

Let's make a quiz activity!

  1. Log into ACORN and enter your course.
  2. Click on the Turn editing on button (if it is not already on).
  3. In the appropriate week or topic section click on the Add Add an activity or resource link and select Quiz under ACTIVITIES, then click on the Add button.
  4. Enter a Name - this is the link that the students will click on to access the quiz. 
  5. Timing - this is where you control when the Quiz is available and for how long.
    • Open the quiz - select the date and time at which you want the Quiz to be available, after selecting the Enable checkbox.
    • Close the quiz - select the date and time at which you want the Quiz to be unavailable, after selecting the Enable checkbox.
    • Time limit - if you only want the Quiz to be available for a certain amount of time, set the time limit after selecting the Enable checkbox. The Quiz will become unavailable to the students either when the closing time is reached or the time limit expires, whichever comes first.
