Create Quiz

The quiz builder helps you create interactive and innovative materials for students. The Agaram.LK quiz builder comes with 10 modern and familiar question types to test out the student’s knowledge of the topics you have taught.

Quiz Info

To get started, from the course builder, navigate to a topic and then click on the “+Quiz” button.

This will open the Quiz Builder window with its very first section called Quiz Info. Here, give the quiz a Title and add a short summary to let students know what this quiz is about.

To go to the next stage, i.e. Question, simply click on the Save & Next button.

Quiz Types

At the Question stage, you can start adding questions to the quiz by clicking on the Add Question button. This will take you to the Question form where you must first select the Question Type. In the Quiz section, you will find the following types of quizzes that you can create for your lesson.

Type: True/False

To set up a true/false question, first select your question type as True/False. Then you’ll get the option to choose the answer. Then write your question and choose the answer. Click on the radio button to choose the right answer.

Type: Single Choice

Use the single-choice quiz format if you want to use a multiple-choice question with only one correct answer. To add the options, click on Add an Option and define the answer in the Answer Title, upload an image if needed, and select the display format of your choice. Finally, click on Update Answer and repeat these steps for the other options. Don’t forget to specify the correct answer at the end.

Type: Multiple Choice

The multiple-choice question is almost similar to the single-choice answer. If you want to list multiple correct answers for a simple question, choose the multiple-choice option. Thus students will get full marks only if they select all of the right answers while answering the question.

Type: Open-Ended

A long answer question type where students can give descriptive answers as this field can have a larger character limit. To define this character limit, go to Quiz Builder > Settings > Advanced Settings and find the Open-Ended/Essay questions answer character limit field.

Type: Short Answer

A Descriptive-type question with a more precise and shorter answer. Instructors can define Character Limit via Settings > Advanced Settings under the Short answer characters limit in Quiz Builder.

Type: Fill In The Blanks

Set a sentence prompting students to fill up the missing blanks with the correct answers. Here first, enter the question and then click on Add an Option.

Then, type your entire question again under Question Title and replace the blanks with the variable {dash}. Below that field, define your Correct Answers each separated by a vertical bar |.

Let’s check an example. Students will see something like what’s shown in the image above on the front end when they take the quiz.

Type: Matching

Use this answering category only if you want to set a question pattern where students have to match the answers. To do this, enter your question and click on Add an Option. Enter your answer prompt and its matched answer.

You can also upload an image along with the answer prompt. Finally, select the display format you prefer and repeat these steps to add more options.

Type: Ordering

Set an ordering question where students have to reorder the given text, images, or both in the correct sequence to obtain marks.

Here, click on Add an Option and enter your first answer item under the Answer Title field. Like the previous question types, you can also upload an image to go along with this.

Repeat these steps to add more items and make sure to add them in the right order.

Type: Image Matching

Set a matching type question where students can match an image to the correct text to obtain marks.

To implement this, enter your question, click on Add an Option and upload your image prompt, enter its matched answer, and click on Update Answer. Repeat these steps to add more options.

Type: Image Answering

Set an identification-type question where students need to answer questions based on images.

Similar to Image Matching, click on Add an Option and upload your image and then enter its corresponding answer. Lastly, click on Update Answer and repeat these steps to add more options.

Add Question

On the Question Form, add the question text, select the type from the dropdown, and add a description if you want. Following that, are a few settings for each question that you need to understand to best use them: 

Answer Required: Toggle this if you want this question to be mandatory to answer.

Randomize: Toggle this if you want this question’s order to be randomly shuffled among the list of questions.

Points for this answer: Use this field to set the points to be awarded for getting this question right.

Display points: Enable this if you want to display the points on the quiz field.

Add the relevant answer(s) and select the correct answer if required. Once you’re done, click on Add to Questions to save it. Doing this will take you back to the previous window where you’ll see the new question already added.

Tip: Click on the action menu icon (three-dot icon) beside the question to access the Edit and Delete options.

To add more questions, simply click on the Add a Question button again and repeat the same steps. Once you’re done adding all of the questions, click on the Save & Next button to go to the final stage of quiz building which is Settings.


In this section, you can use the following settings to adjust the quiz behavior according to your preferences. Let’s explain all of these settings in short.

Time Limit

You can set a time limit from here in seconds, minutes, hours, days, and weeks format. Use 0, if you don’t want to set any time limit. Besides, you can also hide the quiz time by toggling the Hide quiz time button.

Quiz Feedback Mode

Decide how you want to provide your students with feedback after they are done taking the quiz. The tooltips give you an idea of what each mode means.

Here, you’ll get three different feedback modes. These are:

Default: Answers are displayed after the quiz is finished.

Reveal Mode: Answers are shown after the attempt.

Retry Mode: Reattempt the quiz any number of times.

You can define the number of times students can repeat a quiz using the Attempts Allowed setting.

Passing Grade

It specifies the passing grade for this quiz. You can set the passing grade only in the percentage unit.

Max Question Allowed to Answer

This feature is introduced to randomize questions in a quiz. The purpose of this function would be more clear with an example. 

This option is a little bit tricky. Let’s have an example. Suppose, you have 50 questions in a quiz if you put 50 here, a student will have to answer all 50 questions in order to complete the quiz. But if you put 10 here, the student will have to answer only 10 questions out of the 50 and these 10 questions will appear randomly. No student will get the same set of questions.

Advanced Settings

The following are some more Advanced Settings options that you can access by clicking on the Advanced Settings header.

Quiz Auto Start: Enable this to make the quiz start immediately after the page is loaded.

Question Layout: Set the layout for the quiz page. Options include Single Question, Pagination, and Question below the other. 

Question Order: Select the order for the questions provided to you. Options include Random, Sorting, Ascending, and Descending.

Hide Question Number: Select to hide the question number during the quiz.

Short Answer Character Limit: Select the character limit for short answers.

Open-ended/Essay Question Answer Character Limit: Select the character limit for open-ended/essay question answers.

Finally, once you’re satisfied with the settings click on Save & Next again to save your quiz. It should appear under your chosen topic on the Course Builder. 

To Edit the quiz, simply click on the edit icon that’s on the right side of the quiz listing, and to Delete it, click on the trash icon that’s right beside it.

Make Passing a Quiz Mandatory to Access Next Course Content

Quizzes are an amazing study tool but when it comes to eLearning, there is one particular flaw in the system that can baffle Instructors. Yes, we’re talking about online courses where the students have the ability to move on to the next course content even after failing a quiz that precedes it. Luckily, Agaram.LK users can ensure this is not possible and make it mandatory for students to pass a quiz in order to access the next course’s contents.

Follow the steps below:

1. On the Course Builder page, under Course Settings, enable Content Drip and set its type to Course content available sequentially.

2. At this point, update the course to ensure this change is applied.

3. Next, from Quiz Builder > Settings set the Quiz Feedback Mode as Retry Mode.

4. Finally, you should see the Passing is Required toggle appear below the Attempts Allowed slider. All you have to do now is enable this option, click on Save & Next, and Update your course to save the changes.

And voila, it’s now mandatory for your students to pass this quiz in order to access the course material that follows!

If they fail a quiz that requires passing and attempt to access the next lesson, they’ll now get a message like this:

Note: Do keep in mind that if a quiz contains any open-ended questions which require the instructor’s review, the next course content will only be available after the instructor does so.

Quiz Export/Import

Quiz Export/Import add-on allows you to export or import an existing Quiz, to be used later on the Agaram.LK environment. Quiz Export/Import will let you export your existing Agaram.LK Quizzes that you created and will allow you to import them later on, on another Quiz.

Export Quiz

If you want to export your quiz sets, you can easily do that using the export option. In the right section of the quiz option, you will find the export option. Once you click on it, you will see that your quiz has been exported. After clicking on it, your existing quiz will be exported as a CSV format.

Import Quiz

After you have created a course topic and added a quiz as a topic, you will find an Import Quiz button on the right side of the quiz section. Click on it to open the file explorer in your local environment, and choose your desired CSV file.
