Add In-Video Quizzes to My Media Presentations

My Media's in-video quizzing feature allows you to gauge your audience's comprehension of the material being presented and to reinforce learning. Quizzes appear during presentation playback, and audience members can take them during the presentation or once it has concluded.

Quiz Settings

To begin, access the list of presentations on your My Media dashboard, and select the name of the presentation you wish to add one or more quizzes to. A summary of the presentation will appear.

  1. Select the Edit Quizzes link in the right column, and the options for creating quizzes will appear.
  1. 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.

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

Note: Mediasite quiz results do not automatically appear in the Canvas gradebook, but they an be manually entered, if desired.

  1. Provide a Title and Description for the introduction screen that students will see before the presentation begins, then select Next.

  3. Under the quiz, select the + Add Question button.
  1. Choose the type of question (Multiple Choice - Single Answer, Multiple Choice - Many Answers, or True/False) and fill in the necessary fields. If your questions are weighted, specify the weighted value under Points.

Repeat the steps above to add additional questions (steps 4-5) and quizzes (steps 1-3) throughout your presentation.

As a best practice, you should select the Save button at the top each time you add a quiz or a question to save your edits.
