In addition to the preset assignments that can be added during Class Setup, Instructors can add Quizzing Assignments to their Dosage Calc 360 class.
To add Quizzing Assignments, select Assignments (1) from the top navigation bar, then the "Quizzing Assignments" display option (2), where you'll be able to click the "Add Quiz" button (3).
Alternatively, you can also access the Quiz Builder from the Quizzing Assignments shortcut at the bottom of your class Dashboard page.
In the Quiz Builder, begin by entering an Assignment Name for your quiz, then choose a Start and End Date. A quiz's Start Date will determine when your students can access it (first minute of the selected day) and its End Date will determine when the assignment is due for credit (default is last minute of the selected End Date, though this can be adjusted in your Class Setup by changing the End Time.)
Next, select the type of Quizzing Assignment you would like to create. There are two options to choose from: Quick Quiz, and Custom Assignment. We will review each assignment type below.
A Quick Quiz generates questions based on the content you would like to include, and can range between 5 and 25 questions.
To begin, select the specific topics you would like to include by clicking the checkbox beside a topic (1). Next, select the number of questions you would like (2) and click Next Step (3).
Once you have set the parameters for your Quick Quiz, the platform will generate a quiz for you with questions selected at random from within your chosen parameters. You can review these questions individually by clicking "View Details." If you find a question you would rather not use, you can use the "Replace Question" feature to generate a different question within the same topic. You can also "Remove" questions that you don't want to use to streamline your quiz to a shorter length.
Note that the question order is randomized by default, but that you can also select No (1) if you would like questions to appear in a specific order. You can then customize the order by using the drag-and-drop arrows to the left of questions (2).
Once you're satisfied with the contents, click "Complete Quiz" to add it to the course. You can also choose "Save for later," if you need to finish creating your Quick Quiz at a later time.
Custom Assignments allow you to hand-pick each question, rather than prompting Dosage Calc 360 to generate questions for you.
After you've added a Quiz Name, Start Date, and End Date for a Custom Assignment, you will choose the topics you want to include. When you've finished making your topic selections, you'll click "Next Step."
According to the topic parameters you selected, the available questions will be displayed on the next page (the "Select Questions" step of the Custom Assignment process). You can type keywords into the search bar to filter results (1), then click checkboxes to the left of questions (2) to add those questions to your Custom Assignment. When considering which questions you'll select, you can click "View Details" (3) to review each possible question further.
When you choose to "View Details" for a question, a popup containing the question's full text, answers, and rationales will appear.
Once you've made all of your selections, click "Complete Quiz" to continue to a review of your Custom Assignment. You can also choose "Save for later," if you need to finish creating your Custom Assignment at a later time.
On the "Review Assignment" step of the Custom Assignment process, you can edit the Quiz Name, its Start Date and End Date, as well as the order of questions as you could previously with a Quick Quiz. You can also make any final changes to your quiz content on this page by replacing or removing questions.
Once you've reviewed your selections, click "Complete Quiz" to add it to your course. You will again have the option to "Save for later," if you need to finish creating your Custom Assignment at a later time.
