How to create a quiz in OSCampus

Let's take a look at how to create a quiz in OSCampus Pro.

  • In your Joomla control panel, go to "Components" > "OSCampus Pro":

go to components oscampuspro

  • You will arrive to the "OSCampus Pro: Classes" administrative screen:

oscampuspro classess page

  • In OSCampus Pro, lessons are children of classes. This means that you have to create at least one class before OSCampus allows you to create lessons, including lessons by the "Quiz" type. 

Once you created a class with its lessons, go ahead and create a quiz. Let's take a look at how to do this.

  • In your OSCampus Pro administrator panel, go to "Lessons":

go to lessons

  • You will be taken to the "OSCampus Pro: Lessons" screen. In the top left corner of the screen, click "New":

click new

  • This will bring you to the "OSCampus Pro: Create Lesson" screen. Create your quiz:
    • Title: Enter here the title of your quiz. For my demonstration, I entered "What is Joomla?".
    • Class: In this field, select your existing class the quiz will belong to. For my demonstration, I selected "Joomla 3 for Beginners".
    • Module: Enter the name of the module of your class the quiz will belong to. For my demonstration, I typed in "Final Assessment".
    • Lesson Type: Select "Quiz".
    • Published: Leave this setting in its default "Published" state to publish your quiz right away, or else set it to "Unpublished".
    • Access: Select the required level of access to your quiz. For my demonstration, I selected "Public".
  • Click "Save".
  • Click the "Content" tab:

click the content tab

  • Enter your first question with its answers. Use the little red cross icon to delete an answer in case you need to.
  • Once you created all the answers for a question, click on the radio button next to the right answer. This will help OSCampus to calculate the score for this quiz and display it to the quiz submitter.

  • Continue using the "Add Question" and "Add Answer" to create more questions with answers. 
  • Once you finished creating all the questions and answers for your OSCampus quiz, find the "Question Selection" setting. Enter here how many questions of this quiz you would like to be randomly displayed to the quiz taker. Or leave this field blank to display all of the questions. If you wish to use all questions without randomizing them, enter -1:
  • Enter the quiz time limit in seconds into the "Time Limit" field:

quiz created

  • Click "Save" or "Save & Close".
  • Here is how this quiz page will look to its take at your Joomla site frontend:
