Creating an Online Quiz

Hey everyone!

We are getting close to the end of the semester, which means my learning project is coming to a close soon!

I am so thankful for my #edtc300 class and the fact that we were able to pick a passion project. If I was not forced to work on this project every week for this class, then it would have been pushed to the side for a very long time. Instead, I will be able to launch my own course in the new year!

This week, I utilized TalentLMS‘s quiz feature to add the knowledge check for the end of the relationships module. I am not able to add anything else into TalentLMS yet because I am waiting for the voice over, and so I figured that I could get a head start and add in this little quiz!

The photo above shows all of the options to add to a course. When I am ready to add my presentation I will use the “Presentation” feature, but for this knowledge check I used the “Test” feature.

TalentLMS is very easy to navigate and has a ton of options for every feature. On the test feature, you can add multiple choice, fill in the blank, ordering, drag and drop, free text, and more. For this knowledge check, I used all multiple choice!

Inside the test feature! Here you can edit questions, add questions, and change some of the details.

I quite like that TalentLMS allows the instructor to provide feedback or a rationale for all of the answers. This helps participants to understand why that is the correct answer.

What is looks when creating a multiple choice question.

Because this is just a simple knowledge check, I only chose 6 questions. Quite honestly, many people will be able to pass this check without even taking the course, but it simply reinforces some of the important ideas throughout the module.

What the test looks like as a student!

I am really looking forward to exploring more features on TalentLMS and finally uploading the rest of the relationships module! It is slowly but surely coming along, and I am SO excited to have it launch next year.

Thanks for reading,

x Paige Hamann

  1. Hi Paige,

    I think it’s great that you were able to work on this project vs. letting it sit aside. Also that is super exciting that you will be able to launch your course in the New Year!

  2. Good for you, Paige! Your hard work has paid off.
    Could you see yourself using these tools/features in a traditional classroom?

    1. Thanks for your comment Erin! I can definitely see myself using some of the tools and extensions in a traditional classroom. The LMS could work in a traditional classroom too, but it would need a ton of work and manipulation. It would be fantastic for e-learning, but likely only if the educator had the proper time to prepare it.

  3. I too can see how much hard work you’ve put into this! It’s great that you were able to do something you already love to do as your passion project and try new resources at the same time! Great job so far!
