This article describes how to create a quiz from a finished examination.


General information

Quiz is a term for a simpler form of question testing. You can make quizzes to test students' knowledge through a slightly less formal process, than a real examination. You can either create a new quiz and collect questions from your question bank or you can create a quiz based on a completed examination. This latter form allows students to practice old exams, just as they do when taking the Swedish Scholastic Aptitude Test.

Close examination

To be able to make a quiz of a used examination, the examination needs to be completed, ie in post processing or completed. When this is done, a "Create quiz" button appears at the bottom of the settings/info page of the exam. 

If you click on it, you can choose in which event you want the quiz to be created. When you create a quiz, all current questions are marked as available for quiz, and a draft of a quiz is created, similar to the exam.

  • Go to Courses/<course>/<course occasion>
  • Click Exams
  • Click on Examination name
  • Click the Edit Exam button
  • Click the Close exam button

A pop-up window will pop up:

  • Click Close exam button

Create Quiz

  • Go to Exam details, where the Create Quiz button now pops up (in case of problems, check that the right at the top of the page is turned on on your role). Press the button

  • Give your quiz a name, or keep the exam name and add Quiz as a Prefix, your choice.
  • Choose which event the quiz should be available in, choose from the drop down menu.
  • Click the Create Quiz button to create the quiz.

Edit Quiz

When you create the quiz, you also get an opportunity to Edit it, for more settings that suit your students. In that case:

  • Click Edit Quiz button

You will now end up in an edit menu for the quiz, where different settings can be made.

  • URL is an information field where you see which URL you can reach the quiz on, can for example be included in an email to the student or a Content instruction on the student's start page.
  • Name - here the name can be changed on the quiz.
  • Question order - do you want the questions to come in order for the student or frame-dominated.
  • Feedback - depending on the purpose of the quiz, the student can get more or less feedback, back, none at all, just the number right, or all the right ones plus all the correct answers.
  • Demo exam (no purpose here) way to Disabled
  • Requre safe browser (no purpose here) way to No
  • Status - when you are done with the quizzes they are set to Published and listed

If you switch over to the Questions tab, you have the opportunity to edit questions, remove and add, but this may be silly if the quiz is to reflect the real examination.

If you switch over to the Submissions tab, you will see how many times the students have taken the quiz, on the Event you made the quiz available.

Find Quiz

When all the work is done with your quiz, it can be good to know where it is located

  • Go to Courses/<course>/<course occasion>
  • Click the menu Quizzes, here is your quiz

Here you can see what status it has, so that you published it or forgot them in Draft mode. Published, the setting needs to be for students to start using it.

Quiz for the student

When you publish the quiz, the following things happen on the student's page. He logs in as usual in Ortrac and on the start page Dashboard you will find that in the Content section the number of quizzes has now been increased.

  • Click on the ring with Quiz to go to the quiz OR go to the Content menu in the left menu
  • Click on the new quiz in the list

Before you can start your quiz, the student is now asked what environment the quiz should be delivered in, 

  • if you want to run it on mobile, choose to download the app (Andriod/Mac)
  • or you can run on a computer and select Continue in Browser

When you have chosen your way to run your app, the quiz starts and has the same navigation as the real exams.

Move between queries in the matrix on the right

  • Bookmark for questions, bottom left
  • Text size in the top right
  • click on image to enlarge
  • Time does not exist as a compoent in quiz

Results settings, what feedback the student should receive, there were not at all, only their scores and the choice shown below, the student's answer, and the correct answer. The student's answer is marked with a pencil while the correct answer is marked with a check mark.

Good luck with the quizzes
