Initially in the new quiz the list is empty and you need to create at least one question, to do this you need to click on the Add question (4) button.
On the question creation page you need to select the type of question and set the wording of the question. You can use text formatting, insert pictures, videos, tables, links and other hypertext elements in the text of the question.
Also, each question needs to fill in the "Question weight (in points)" parameter. This is the maximum number of points that the User can earn if they give an absolutely correct answer to the question. The default weight for each question is 1 point. Question weights are usually used if the quiz has questions of varying difficulty - simple questions get fewer points, difficult questions get more points.
You also need to choose whether the answer variants will be displayed as a list or as tiles. By default the variants are displayed as a list.
On the question creation page you can add it to a group.
More information about quiz groups can be found in the following article Groups for quiz questions.
Below is the answer variant creation tool for the question. By default there are 4 answer variant templates that you want to edit (their number can be changed). To edit an answer variant, just place the cursor on its content and the editing toolbar will become available.
Correct answers must be ticked. They will be highlighted by color in the list of variants.
Later, while creating tasks based on the quiz or when you include the quiz in the course, you can choose the necessary settings for the quiz.
These settings are, for example, the number of questions that will be asked, the number of attempts to pass the quiz, the time limit in minutes, as well as the completion threshold (the minimum percentage of quiz completion that must be achieved for the quiz to be passed successfully.
