Editing Questions

This is the second area of the Quiz wizard, and the options here allow you to add and manage your quiz questions.

Quiz Question Editor

Document Ninja quizzes only support Single Choice and Multiple Choice questions - if you're looking for a quiz with more options, the Course Builder's capabilities may suit your needs!


Questions in quiz

These are numbered buttons for ever question in your quiz. To edit a question, simply click on a button to open it below.

Question number buttons

If the Question ordering setting is using Natural order, you can click and drag the number buttons left and right to rearrange the order of your questions. If set to Random order, this functionality will not work.

Question number rearranging

Add new question

To add a new question, click the purple '+' button to the right of this area.

Add new question button

Don't forget to save a question before switching to another one - otherwise, changes may be lost!

Question media

This field allows you to place an optional image or video above the question text.

For images, just drag and drop a picture file in this area. It will appear in this area as HTML coding - it'll look a little messy, but it'll work!

Question media - dragging image file Question media - image code Question media - image example

For streaming media (YouTube, Vimeo, SoundCloud), copy the media's embed code, click back on this area and paste (Ctrl+V) the code into it.

Question media - copying embed code Question media - embedded media code Question media - embedded media example

You will need to use the proper HTML embed code for the media this time - standard web address URLs will not work!

If items appear odd or misaligned, you can add other HTML tags (such as < center > or < br >) into the code to fix them!

Question text

Self-explanatory - this is your question! Delete the placeholder text and replace it with your own content.

This next group of options allows you to set up your answers, or 'distractors' as they're referred to in the wizard:

Correct (checkbox)

Checkboxes used to designate correct choices. If a distractor is checked, users will need to select it when answering the question in order to pass it.

You can check either a single distractor (for a single choice question) or check multiple distractors (for a multiple choice question).

Correct checkbox

If making a multiple choice question, remember that users will have to select ALL your correct distractors to pass the question - if they only pick one or the other, it will count as a fail!

Distractor text

Also self-explanatory - this is a possible answer! Delete the placeholder text and replace it with your own content.

Distractor text fields

You can also rearrange the order of your distractors if you need to - just click and hold the mouse in the small empty area below the Correct checkbox and drag up or down the distractor list to move it to a new position.

Delete distractor

To delete a distractor, click the small 'x' button to the right of the distractor text field. The distractor will immediately be removed, so be careful!

Delete distractor button

Show (number of distractors)

Determines how many of your distractors will be loaded for the question. Type in a number between 1 and the maximum amount of distractors you have.

If the Show number is smaller than the number of distractors in a question, the distractors will randomise. If the Show number matches the number of distractors, they will always appear in the order you have them in the editor.

Show - number field

Add new distractor

To add a new distractor, click the small '+' button to the right of the Show text field. A blank distractor will be added to the bottom of the list.

Add new distractor button


The next group of options allows you to add short feedback messages to display once a question has been marked.

These are optional - type in your own content if you want, but if not, you can leave these fields blank. These are also unique to each question, so different questions can have different feedback text.

Feedback when correct

Allows you to type a message to display on the question when you get the answer correct.

Feedback when correct text field Feedback when correct example

Feedback when incorrect

Allows you to type a message to display on the question when you get the answer incorrect.
