Tests with a Reading and Questions

  7. This will allow students to see the reading at the top of the page (in the instructions) and have the questions follow below.
  8. Repeat these steps for each reading, creating parts and putting questions per reading into separate question pools


Managing Display of Discussions by Date

To set discussions up at the beginning of a term but not make them visible until a later date, work with Forums instead of Topics.

To organize your discussions this way

  1. Go to Manage link at the top of the window
  2. Click Forums
  3. Go to "Click to Edit" and inser the dates you want

Another approach

  1. Create an "Archived Weekly Topics" forum
  2. Set to *DENY Access* Students don't see this forum
  3. When you are ready to make visible use the "move" function
  4. Topic goes from Archives to active Weekly Topics

Disadvantage of this approach: have to open / move topics manually weekly


Alternatively, you can click on a student's name and change the score of individual questions, as you please. Leave the final score field alone. It'll be adjusted when you click on Done.
