  • Under the Layout section you can determine how many pages, and how many questions per page, as well as set how students can navigate through the quiz - whether sequentially or freely.

    • Adaptive mode
    • Deferred Feedback (with/without Certainty Based Marking)
    • Immediate Feedback (with/without Certainty Based Marking)
    • Multiple tries
