Creating Random Sections

Random sections are created by importing questions from the Question Library. A random section allows you to present questions in a random order. You can also present different combinations of questions in random order. In other words, if you were to import 25 questions but only wanted a 20 question quiz, the random section would pull 20 random questions from the 25 that you imported. No two of these randomly generated quizzes would put the same 20 questions in the same order, so your students would not have identical tests.

1. Log into D2L and select the course. Click on the Quizzes area on the navigation bar under the drop down menu in the Assessments tab.

2. From the list of quizzes, click on the quiz that you want to add the random section to.

3. Select the Layout/Questions tab. Click Add/Edit Questions. From the create new drop-down menu, select Random Section. Click GO.

4. In the Section Name text box, type a name for the section of random questions.

You may choose to create a QuickLink from the Content area that links directly to a quiz.  To do this, follow these instructions:

1. Log into D2L and enter your course.

2. In the navbar at the top of the page, click the Content link under the drop-down menu in the Assessments tab.

FAQs

- How do I get my students to view their test question results (feedback) after the day restriction is up?

Currently, the only way we have found to do this would be to reopen the quiz. You would want to check to see who hasn't taken it at all before reopening it and restrict those students. You can do that by adding only the students who took the quiz in the special access area.

- Can I check to see student access during quizzes?

For this you will need to go to your Quizzes tab. Click on the ruler with the green check-mark associated with the particular quiz you want to check. There will be a small drop-down menu that says ‘Restrict to': you will then select ‘Users with attempts in progress' and now you can view them from the bottom of your screen.
To view students' quiz attempts that have already been completed or to assess their quiz: Click on the ruler with the green check-mark associated with the particular quiz you want to check. You can see the students who have completed their quiz listed below. To view a particular student's quiz click on "attempt 1" (or other attempts if you allow more than one) below the student's name and you will see the student's response to all questions and what they got wrong or right.

- How do I reset an attempt?

To reset an attempt, go to your Quizzes. After finding the appropriate quiz, select the grading icon (the ruler/check mark icon) to the right of the title. You must then select Display Options at the upper left corner of the Users page and assure that the Allow Reset box is checked. Be sure to select save before leaving this box. After this is complete, you will return to your Users page where there will be a list of your students that have attempted the quiz you are working with. Below each student's name will be a record of each attempt they have made thus far. In order to reset a student's attempt, you must check the box to the left of the attempt that you wish to remove. You then must select the Trash Can icon at the top or bottom of the page. There will be a confirmation box appear. Be sure to select Yes and your student will be able to attempt the quiz again.

- Students have taken the quiz, but the grades for this quiz are not showing up in the gradebook.

It could be one of two things: a) that you did not link it to the gradebook or b) you do not have the auto grade check box marked. You will need to manually link the quiz to the gradebook in the quizzes area:

1. Edit the quiz that you would like to link to the gradebook by clicking on the name of the quiz.

2. On the Properties tab, you will find a drop down menu beside "Grade Item". If you have already created the grade item in your gradebook, the quiz name will be listed in this menu.

3. If you have not created a gradebook item in the manage grades area, you will need to click on the blue "add grade item" link to create your gradebook item.

4. Auto Grade: Make sure there is a check mark in both boxes below this menu box: "Auto Export to Grades" and "Automatic Grade." Click Save.

5. Check your gradebook, if the grades are still not showing, you will need to go into each student's attempt and click "submit" in order for the grades to show up in the gradebook

- What are some anti-cheating options?

1. Disable the ability to right click.

2. Disable the use of the pager tool. (Note this tool is disabled in our version.)

3. Password- protect the quiz. (Please note that this creates one password for the quiz and not different passwords for each student.)

4. Restrict access to your quiz to certain IP addresses. (This could be used to restrict it to a particular computer or computer lab.)

5. Prevent the students from moving backwards through the pages so that once they answer a question, they cannot go back and give another student their answer.

6. Randomize the options so that two students answering the same question potentially won't have the same letter option. (Please note that you would have to do this for every multiple choice question you create. It is not a one click for all questions feature.)

- I can see all but one student's grade in the gradebook; the student took their quiz, but said that they couldn't see their quiz grade either, what happened?

Chances are the student went over the time limit; you will need to view their attempt and click "submit" in order for the grade to be sent to the gradebook.

- What are the "Recalculate and "auto-grade" buttons?

The "Recalculate" button comes into play when the instructor accesses the students' attempts and changes the grades on particular questions. For example, if the correct answer was option C. A and B, and the student selected A, the professor can elect to go in and give the student partial credit for that question. After changing the points on that particular question, click recalculate and the final score at the top of the attempt will be changed. The grade in the grade book will not change until you click save at the top of the page.

The "auto-grade" button resets the points on the questions to what was calculated by D2L based on the correct answer the instructor provided. Note that if you change the grade on a question and hit auto-grade instead of recalculate, the grade will revert to the score originally calculated. With any changes, remember to click save.

-How do I randomize my test questions?

1. When setting up a quiz in the layout/questions tab and in the add/edit questions area, use the Create New drop-down menu to create a random section.

2. After clicking Go, you will need to name the section and add any necessary messages. Click Save.

3. You will then be brought back to the add/edit page where you should select Import. This will bring you to the question library.

4. Use the drop-down menu to select the question folder you desire the questions to come from. Select the box in front of the folder to select all questions. Select Save.

5. At the top of the page, you call determine how many questions from this folder you would like randomly pulled. (You can also determine how many points each question is worth). Click Save.

6. You can now return to the layout/questions area to preview the quiz.

7. Be sure to ALWAYS select Save when making changes.
