Video: How to Add a Quiz to Your Mediasite Presentation (4:09)

  1. From within the list of presentations in your MyMediasite portal, select the name of the presentation for which you wish to add one or more quizzes. A summary of the presentation will appear.

  2. Select Edit Quizzes in the right column. The options for creating quizzes will appear.

    Edit Quizzes button

  3. Select a Quiz Type:

    • Study guide: A study guide is an informal quiz that allows students to measure their understanding and practice with the concepts being presented. Students are not required to submit their quizzes. After completing a quiz, students can retake a quiz and change their answers.

    • Assessment: An assessment is a repeatable quiz that measures student comprehension, while allowing them multiple retake attempts. Students will only see their total scores after they submit their answers. They will not be able to see correct answers for questions or view quiz results for each quiz. After submitting all quizzes, students can reload the presentation to reset their answers and take all quizzes again.

    • Scored: A scored quiz is a non-repeatable quiz that measures student comprehension. Students will only see their total scores after they submit all quizzes. They will not be able to view correct answers or view individual quiz results. Students cannot change their answers or retake a quiz after submission. Note: Mediasite quiz results do not automatically appear in the Canvas gradebook, but can be manually entered, if desired. Gradebook integration is planned for a future release of Mediasite.

    You can further customize the quiz settings by checking or unchecking the quiz options.
