Test your students with quizzes on Eliademy

Today is the day for a major update on Eliademy. We have been listening to feedback from our vibrant diverse community and happy to announce release of the four most wanted features:

1. Quizzes. Multiple choice question is a new type of assignment course instructors can give to students. Now students can test their knowledge and teachers can build interactive study materials directly in Eliademy.

Quiz example

2. Free form text submission for assignments. Now students can create entire assignment directly in Eliademy, use same powerful authoring interface loved by instructors. This especially helps users with iOS devices which does not allow file submission from mobile browser. However, if you want to use classical file upload, you can still do it from the same familiar interface.

Free form task

3. Assignments without file submission is another new type of course tasks. Such assignment is very useful to keep students informed about course activities such as home reading or upcoming exams. It will show up as a regular task with a deadline in student interface.

4. Custom course background picture. Now your course in Eliademy can be even more personal. Course background picture could be any PNG, JPEG or GIF file. Picture will be resized to fit 849×170 resolution and you will be able to make adjustments by dragging it up and down in preview window.

    I’m looking to start using this site for my school in New Mexico, USA. Are you working on any interactive based pages? For example, drag and match quizzes?

    I love the idea of this site and am strongly considering it. Thank you for all the information.

      A couple of weeks back we have launched brand new version of quizzes (yet, didn’t publish the story about it). In addition to multiple choice, you can not create true/false and “free form” types of question. You can also shuffle questions for each student and set time when the quiz will become available. In other words, we are constantly working on improving Eliademy. Drag and match quizzes are in our roadmap for the next year.

    I created a multiple choice quiz “choose all that are correct” style. But students are complaining that it doesn’t work. For mulitple choice quizzes, does Eliademy allow more than one correct answer? It seems not. Please advise.

    • Sergey Gerasimenko

      Multiple choice quizzes allow multiple correct answers. However, if a student answered correctly on 1 out of 2 correct answers, we count it as “fail”. If there are any technical problem, please advise your students to contacts us via question mark icon in the bottom-right corner of the screen. This will allow us to see various technical details and help much faster.

        thank you, I will add that instruction to the multiple choice questions.
