  2. On the “Test new registration” page, set the following contents.

    1. In “Title”, enter the title of the quiz.
    2. In “Quiz content”, enter a description of the content of the quiz. It can be omitted.
    3. In the “Answer period”, set the period during which students can answer the quiz.
      • If you set “OK” or “OK until reaching the passing score” to “Retake”, students can take the quiz as many times they want during this period.
      • If “Retake” is disabled, students can take the quiz only once during this period.
      • For example, you can set the answer period to (1) only during class hours, or (2) until the next class starts, etc.
      • You cannot withdraw the quiz once the answer period starts. Set the start time carefully.
    4. “Time limit” allows you to set the answer time for the entire quiz.
      • In case you choose “Yes”, the answer is forcibly terminated when students go over the time limit and the answer at that time will be submitted.
    5. In “Waiting Time”, you can set the time to wait before starting the answer.
      • You can use this setting when you want students to read the explanation before starting the quiz.
      • You don’t necessarily have to use this function.
    6. If you choose “Yes” to “Random questions” and select a specific number of questions to ask, the number of questions will randomly be selected from the questions you have prepared in advance.
      • You can use this setting when you want students to take the quiz repeatedly and want to prevent them from using cheating methods such as memorizing the answers in order.
    7. If you choose “Yes” to “Passing Grade”, students will take the exam repeatedly until they reach the passing score.
    8. In the “Referring of the scoring result,” you set whether or not students are able to refer to their own score after answering, and when they can check the score.
      • You can select from “not possible” (students cannot check their own scores), “at the time of submission” (for automatic scoring), “after scoring” (for manual scoring), or “at the end of the answer period” (after all students have answered).
    9. “Refer to correct answer” allows you to set whether or not students should refer to the correct answer and commentary, and when to refer to it.
      • You can select from “not possible” (students cannot check the correct answers), “at the time of submission” (before scoring in the case of manual scoring), “after scoring”, or “at the end of the answer period” (after all members have answered).
      • When students can refer to the correct answer, the answer may be known to other students who have not / are taking the exam, so please set it appropriately.
    10. In “Automatic scoring”, set whether the system will grade automatically when students finish answering the questions, or whether the teacher will grade manually.
      • In order to perform automatic scoring, it is necessary to make all the questions closed questions or a fill-in-the-blank style whose answers should be unique strings of characters (note orthographic variants, such as a difference between full-width and half-width).
    11. In “Retake”, set whether students can take the quiz more than once.
      • If the purpose of the quiz is self-improvement, it is a good idea to set the retake as “OK” or “OK until the passing score is reached”.
      • If you want to reflect the result of the quiz on students’ grades, it is better to set the quiz retake as “not possible”.
