Online quizzes will help you check your team’s qualifications quickly — identify their knowledge gaps and then assign relevant training to fill them. 

In this article, we’ll explain how you can create quizzes in iSpring Learn and which settings you should use to prevent cheating and get accurate results. 

Create a Quiz in a Browser

To check your employees’ knowledge quickly, you don’t have to create a quiz in a separate tool and upload it to your learning platform. You can build a test right in iSpring Learn and assign it to your team immediately. All you need is a browser and an internet connection. 

Sample quiz created in iSpring Learn

You can create tests online on any computer or tablet, no matter what operating system they have: Windows or Mac OS.

Flexible Quiz Settings for Accurate Knowledge Testing

3 question types. You can choose between multiple-choice, multiple response, or short answer. As well, you can create an unlimited number of questions for each test.

Answer feedback will help your employees review their mistakes, understand the topic better, and improve performance. For example, you can explain in detail why the answer is incorrect, add useful facts, or provide an entire article on the subject.

Answer feedback in iSpring Learn

Together with feedback, you may want to show the correct answer.

Feedback is enabled by default — an employee sees it when answering questions. If necessary, you can change the text of the message or deactivate it.

Shuffling questions. If you enable this option, the system will randomize the order of questions. Each user will have a unique test, so it will be more difficult for employees to cheat off of each other.

Collaboration on Quizzes to Make Them Even Faster

To build a quiz faster, you can involve your colleagues in the process. For example, while you’re creating questions, they can be setting up branching, configuring the settings to cheat-proof your tests, or adding pictures to the assessments.

Each change in a quiz occurs in real time. You will see which of your colleagues are working on a quiz with you and which question is currently being edited. 

When an author is editing a block, it turns gray and the other collaborators can’t edit it. You can make changes to the quiz once your colleague has finished working on it.

Protection from Cheating for Fair Results

As mentioned, you can randomize the order of the questions to prevent cheating. Besides, you can limit the number of attempts and time allowed to complete the quiz. If an employee solves the tasks ahead of time and closes the test, they won’t be able to return and review it. Thus, your employees won’t be able to cheat, and you’ll get accurate results.

iSpring Learn will check the answers automatically and collect the results of the entire team or each individual employee into the report.

Access on Any Device

Online quizzes work perfectly on any computer, tablet, or smartphone. They fit neatly to the screen size, look beautiful on any device, and load quickly – even with a poor internet connection.

Windows, iOS, or Android — it doesn’t matter. You get quizzes that display great on any device.

Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to build an online quiz:

    To help employees retain the information better, add feedback for each question. You can praise them for the right answer and explain what’s incorrect if they make a mistake.

  4. To set up the rules for passing the quiz, go to Settings. Here you can specify the number of attempts permitted, the passing score, set the time allowed to complete the quiz, and disable feedback.Testing rules in iSpring Learn
