Other Quiz Setup Options

There’s an option to include a title for your quiz as well as an option to put in instructions or messages for your students.

You also have the option to attach files (anything relating to your quiz) from Google Drive, YouTube, or link to your quiz. So, when your students take the quiz, they’ll be able to see the attached file as a resource to help them during the quiz.

On the right side of your screen, you will see the option to select class, an option to select specific students for the quiz (by default, it is set to ‘All Student‘), another option to input the total number of point for the quiz, and another option to set a due date and time.
