Creating a Quiz
The "Quiz" activity in LATTE allows professors to build quizzes with many different question types and administer them through LATTE.
How to Create a Quiz
Step 1: From the course homepage, click the "Turn Editing On" button on the upper left-hand side of your course homepage.
Step 2: In the section of the course outline you want to add the quiz, click the down arrow next to the Add an Activity... option box.
Step 3: From the drop-down menu, select Quiz
Step 4: The Adding a new Quiz… page will open. Enter a name for the quiz and introduction.
Step 5: Modify the settings to fit your course needs:
- Time limit (minutes): by default the time limit is disabled, allowing students as much time as they need to complete the quiz. If you wish to enforce a time limit, check the Enable box and enter the number of minutes you wish to give students to complete the quiz
- Each attempt builds on the last: if Yes is selected, every time the student makes a new attempt at the quiz the results of the last quiz will be displayed. For a fresh start, select No
- Adaptive mode: If Yes is selected, then the student will be allowed multiple responses to a question within the same attempt at the quiz. For example, if the student's response is marked as incorrect the student will be allowed to try again immediately; however a penalty will usually be subtracted from the students score for each wrong attempt (the penalty is determined by the penalty factor).
- Apply penalties: when adaptive mode is selected, Yes will subtract a penalty for every incorrect attempt, No will not apply a penalty for incorrect attempts. The amount of penalty is chosen individually for each question when setting up or editing the question.
Step 6: Click either Save and return to course to return to the main course page or Save and display to add questions to the quiz.

Step 6: Click Save Changes to return to the Editing Quiz
