Creating quiz categories

You can organise your questions into categories for easier management just like you can organise files into sub-folders for easier file management on your computer. You can also move your questions inside the appropriate category.

Categories in the grade book allow you to group questions together based on unit, element, performance criteria or assessment.

Every course has a 'parent' category named "Default for <coursename>". The parent category displayed below is for a course called Matt's playpen.

Adding a quiz category

Below are examples of sub-categories set up for different units being delivered in a course, plus a unit with sub-categories for each element and performance criteria. This structure would allow you to pull random questions from sub-categories and be confident that you have asked every student a question for every element and performance criteria.
