Creating a New Quiz
A Quiz is an easy, comprehensive way to gain insight into student understanding and performance. With Kandoolu, a variety of Quiz questions have been created by teachers, for teachers, to help deliver personalized learning to each student, inside or outside of the classroom.
There are two types of Quizzes you can create: Self-guided or Teacher-led. In a self-guided Quiz, students work at their own pace. In a Teacher-led Quiz, the teacher advances the questions manually. For take home Quizzes, we recommend using the self-guided option.
