There's two main steps to create a quiz in TILE Composer. First you create the quiz, and then you add questions to the quiz. This is true for informal "Knowledge Checks" as well as for formal quizzes and assessments. 


The steps for adding quiz questions is covered in a separate article: Add Questions to a Quiz

Watch this video for a quick example of how to create a Sample Quiz in Composer. You can also follow the Step-by-Step instructions below.

Step-by-Step Instructions


Clone a Sample Quiz


1. Select the Quizzes option in the side menu.


2. The Quizzes page loads. Make sure it is the quizzes page for your practice lesson/course by looking at the breadcrumbs at the top of the screen. If your lesson/course isn't displayed, click the last breadcrumb to open the course selection screen and then select your lesson.


3. There are two quiz types available by default in a Composer Template Lesson: "Basic" and "Advanced." Both of these have starter questions that you will either update or replace. The basic quiz has Multiple Choice and True False questions, while the advanced quiz has these and more advanced question types like Matching, Sorting, and Text Input.

To get a preview of either quiz type, just select the context menu for the quiz and then select Preview.


4. When you decide which quiz type you want, select the context menu for that quiz and then select Clone.



5. Select a Target Tile (competency) in your lesson and then click Clone.


6. A new copy of the Quiz appears in the list.



Update Quiz Settings


Select the context menu for the quiz copy you just created and then select Edit. The Quiz Settings panel opens.


  • 1 - Give the Quiz a Name. (NOTE: This name is for your reference only - it will not be visible to learners.)
  • 2 - [Optional] Enter a Description of the quiz. The Description will also not be visible to learners, but may be useful for notes.
  • 3 - Enter the Passing Threshold of the quiz. Set this to '0' if the quiz is an informal "Knowledge Check" with no score.
  • 4 - Enter the Number of Questions to display for each quiz attempt. This number may be lower than the total number of questions in the quiz question bank (e.g., if you want to randomly display 10 questions out of 20 total options). If you have different levels of difficulty/rigor for your questions, you can allocate the desired number of questions for each level (e.g., display 4 easy, 3 medium, and 3 hard questions).


  • 5 - Set the Duration of the quiz. In general, allow one minute per question (but adjust as necessary depending on difficulty level, length of question prompt, etc.).
  • 6 - Set the Question Feedback to your preference: "All Possible Choices" shows correct/incorrect for all answer options; "Selected Only" shows feedback only for options selected by the learner; "No Feedback" does not show any question-level feedback during the quiz.
  • 7 - Set the Questions Order logic to be used for the Quiz:
    • Increased Difficulty - questions displayed in order of difficulty, from easiest to hardest (NOTE: in this setting, questions are displayed randomly within each difficulty level)
    • Bank - questions displayed in the order set in the question bank (see Quiz Questions tab for details)
    • Random - questions displayed in random order


NOTE: We recommend setting this to 'Random' for typical quizzes.


Leave all other quiz settings as they are. 


Select Save when you are ready.


Your quiz is now configured - time to set up the questions!
