What kind of tasks or assessment types I can create on my course?

All tasks on Eliademy are split into 2 distinct categories:

  • Assignments – a task that requires an answer from a student (an essay for example) which needs to be checked and graded by a course instructor (it is also possible to create assignments that do not require a written answer - for example, self-study)
  • Quizzes – a task with a set of predefined questions that student need to complete on their own and get an instant rating. An instructor can set weather quiz can be taken only once or multiple times. See How to change a number of attempts on quizzes.

Quizzes have 3 types of questions:

  • Multiple-choice: a student needs to choose one or several correct answers for a question (please note that partially correct answers still counted as fail)
  • True/False: a student needs to choose weather statement in the question is true or false
  • Short Answer: a student needs to type a word, a number or a phrase as an answer to the question
For each quiz question an instructor can:
  • Add text, math formulas, media links and pictures (we have the same editing interface you use on the course)
  • Add a short explanation which student will see after answering the question
  • Change order of the questions in the list (in case you want students to complete quiz in sequential order)

For each quiz (and assignment) instructor can:
  • Add a welcome and closing message – text that students will see before and after taking a quiz (it can be used to specify pass rate, or give additional explanations for results)
  • Specify “start date” on which all students on the course will be able to see the quiz (by default start date is set to current date, if you would like to hide the quiz – please remember to adjust starting date)
  • Specify “due date” by which student have to complete the quiz
  • Allow or reject late answer – enabling this option, allows students completing quiz after the due date, but leaves a mark for instructor
  • Choose whether questing should be shown in sequential or random order for students
  • Specify amount of attempts a quiz can be taken
