How do I organize my quizzes into categories?

Brightspace, Instructor Help

Please follow the below steps when creating and organizing quizzes into categories. 


1. Create a quiz category:

Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > Edit Categories

Add Category > Enter a name into the Name field > Save



2. Edit a quiz category: Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > Edit Categories > Save.

Note: You can make changes to category names by editing the Name field.


3. Reorder categories: Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > Edit Categories.

You can change the order of categories that display on the Quizzes List page by changing the values in “Sort Order” (On the right) > Save and Close

Example- If I want ”In Class Quizzes” to appear first (1) and ”Peer Evaluation – Group Projects” to appear second (2) in the category list.
a. Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > Edit Categories > Sort Order by entering 1 for the quiz you want to appear first, 2 beside the one after that, and vice versa. 

     b. Check the box(es) next to the quiz category(ies) you would like to delete > Trash icon 


4. Putting quizzes into categories 

Once the categories have been built, we can now put the different quizzes into categories. 

     a. Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > Drop down menu next to the quiz you would like to add to a category to > Edit >

b. Under Category > Choose the desired category (or create a new category) > Save and Close.

5. Browse quizzes by category: Course Tools > Quizzes > Manage Quizzes > View by Category > Apply
