Netquiz Web+

Netquiz Web+ is a tool created by the CCDMD that allows you to easily create exercises, quizzes and formative or summative assessments, and to publish them online with a single click.

PROJECTS
Netquiz Web+ project is a collection of questionnaires prepared using items and media files from the project's library. The collaboration function allows several users to work on the same project.

QUESTIONNAIRES
Netquiz Web+questionnaires can be formative or summative. They are created in French or in English and can also be translated into other languages. It is also possible to add a glossary of terms for the participant's use.

ASSESSMENTS
Assessments are the end product of questionnaires. You can create as many assessments as you wish from one questionnaire, and set start and end dates and times for each one (optional).

LIBRARY
The library of a Netquiz Web+ project contains the elements needed to create questionnaires, such as items, medias files, collections to sort questionnaires, categories to sort items, a list of terms for the glossary and the list of languages in which questionnaires are posted.

ITEMS
Netquiz Web+items are the building blocks of questionnaires. There are 14 item types involving different interactions from the participant in the form of question pages. Another item type (Page) is used to create the other pages.

MEDIA FILES
Media files, including images, audio files and videos, are easy to integrate into the items of a questionnaire.

TERMS
Terms are words or expressions that are saved in the library and can be used to create glossaries that can be associated with questionnaires.

LANGUAGES
With Languages, you can edit preprogrammed messages and create questionnaires in languages other than French and English.

My Projects

A Netquiz Web+ project brings together all the questionnaires that share the elements saved to the project’s own library, including the items, media files, collections, categories, terms and languages. You can create several projects, allowing you to have completely separate work environments. You can also use the Import and Export functions to copy items and questionnaires from one project to another.

When you connect to Netquiz Web+ for the first time, it will ask you to create your first project. Its title appears at the top of the page next to the mention Current project. When you add a new project and its status is Active, its title will appear in the popup list of the Current project, where you can select the project on which you want to work.

Displaying the list of projects:

At the top of the Netquiz Web+ page, click on Account. Then, in the menu on the left under the Account, click on My projects.

You can add, edit or delete a project on this page. You can also invite other users as collaborators or assessment managers. Collaborators can also add, edit or delete content, but they can’t invite other users or activate, deactivate or delete the project. Assessment managers only have access to the project Assessments section. They can post assessments and see the results, but they don’t have access to questionnaires, media, items and other project content.

The columns in the list are as follows:

  • Code: Unique code number assigned by Netquiz Web+ when the project is saved.
  • Project title: Title given by the user under the Content tab when the project is created or modified.
  • Manager: Name of the person responsible for the project.
  • Identifier: Unique identifier given to the project by the user when the project is created.
  • Status: Project status as determined when the project is created or modified. A project can be either Active or Inactive.
  • Modification date: Date and time when the project was last saved.

You can't duplicate a project or copy elements directly from one project to another in Netquiz Web+. However, you can copy elements from one project to another with the importing and exporting features. See the information provided for each of these features in the appropriate sections:


Managing project access

Netquiz Weballows you to have a group of people working on the same project. There are three roles in a collaborative project: project manager, collaborator and assessment manager. Each member’s access depends on the role they are given.

  • The project manager has full access to the project. Only the project manager has the power to invite new members and activate, deactivate, or delete the project.
  • Collaborators have almost the same access as the project manager; for example, they can add, edit or delete content in the project. However, they cannot invite new members to work on the project, or activate, deactivate, or delete the project.
  • Assessment managers only have access to the Assessments section of the project. They can post assessments and consult the results, but they don’t have access to questionnaires, media, items and other components of the project. 

Access to the project is managed through the project form.

My Questionnaires

A Netquiz Web+ project can contain one or several questionnaires that are created using the items and media files previously saved in the project's library.

A questionnaire contains a home page and an end page by default. To create your questionnaire, you need to add text pages and question pages. The former are Page-type items and the latter are created using any of the 14 other types of items requiring interaction from the participant. For example, in a Dictation-type item, the participant is required to transcribe the contents of an audio or video file, while a Matching-type item requires them to pair different elements.

NOTE: Be careful not to confuse the item, which pertains to the questionnaire, with the question, which pertains to the posted assessment. The item can be seen as one of the Netquiz Web+ building blocks that you use for preparing the pages of your questionnaire, for example questions or support pages. A question is addressed to the participant during an assessment and requires an answer. So, questions are built with items to which image, video or audio files can be added in order to create a multimedia questionnaire that will serve as a basis for one or several assessments.

The questionnaire pages can be divided into sections.

The project manager can invite other users to collaborate by inviting them to join a project to which a questionnaire is associated.

To display the list of questionnaires:

At the top of the Netquiz Web page, click on Questionnaires. In the menu on the left under Questionnaires, click on My questionnaires.

From this page, you can use all questionnaires features, e.g. add a new questionnaire, edit, duplicate, flag, see a web preview, import or export, print or delete, and organize questionnaires by creating collections.

The columns in the list are as follows:

  • Code: Unique number assigned by Netquiz Web+ when the questionnaire is saved.
  • Title: Name given to the questionnaire by the user, under the Parameters tab when the questionnaire is created or modified.
  • Items: Number of items in the questionnaire.
  • Type: Type of questionnaire (formative or summative)
  • Collection: Collection as saved when the questionnaire was added or modified. Questionnaires don’t have to belong to a collection, but collections can help you to categorize and better organize your questionnaires.
  • Assessments: Number of assessments created from the questionnaire.
  • Note: Comment added under the Parameters tab relating to a questionnaire when created or modified. The content of this field is not visible in the published questionnaire. Notes can help you manage the content or work in collaboration with a colleague and identify items that are marked “To check”, “To complete” or “Check copyrights”, etc.
  • Modification date: Date and time that a questionnaire was last saved.
  • Star icon: An orange star is used to flag one or more questionnaires that need special attention e.g., because they need to be reviewed or completed. You can flag or unflag a questionnaire by clicking on the corresponding star in the list or by using the Flag feature for one or more questionnaires in the list.

Adding a new questionnaire

A questionnaire is always associated to a project and is made up of items and media files that are saved in the project's library. Questionnaires from a project can be organized into collections – collections are not mandatory, but using them is an efficient way to organize your work.

  1. Display the list of questionnaires by clicking on Questionnaires at the top of the Netquiz Web+ page or, in the menu on the left, under the title Questionnaires, and click on My questionnaires.
  2. Click on Add a new questionnaire, to the right of My questionnaires; a questionnaire form will appear.
  3. Fill in the text input fields.
  4. Click on the Save button to save the information or click on Cancel if you do not wish to save the changes.

At the top and bottom of the page, you will find the Save button to save the information you have entered, the Cancel button (if you choose not to save any information) and the Preview button to see how the questionnaire will appear to the participant once published.

Questionnaires are defined under the three following tabs: Parameters, Theme and Glossary.

Parameters for the questionnaire

The Parameters tab allows you to determine the questionnaire's essential elements.

Collection

Questionnaires can belong to a collection. To pair a questionnaire with an existing collection, click on the corresponding collection in the drop-down menu. To pair a questionnaire with a new collection, enter the new collection’s name in the Create a new collection if needed field. The new collection will be created at the same time as the questionnaire. It will appear in the library under My collections.

Questionnaire title

Title as it appears in the list of questionnaires.

Questionnaire type

Formative or summative

Presentation of items

Order in which the questions appear in the assessment. Your options are:

  • Based on the parameter of each section: If the questionnaire is divided into sections, you can choose whether the questions will appear in a random order or in a predetermined order for each section (in the left-hand column). If your questionnaire is not divided into sections but select that option, the questions will appear in a random order by default.
  • Random order: The questions will appear in a random order in the assessment.
  • Predetermined order: The questions will appear in a predetermined order.

Response time

The time that the participant spent on each question before clicking on the Submit button. You can choose to have this time displayed in the results table shown to the participant at the end of the assessment.

  • Do not calculate: The Response time will not appear in the results table.
  • Calculate: The Response time column will appear in the results table.

Display correct answer

Select the appropriate option, depending on whether you want the participant to have access to the correct answer after submitting their answer or not. This option is only available with formative assessments, as it is deactivated in summative mode.

  • Based on the parameter of each item: The parameter Display correct answer is available for each item. When the Based on the parameter of each item option is selected, the Solution button will appear in each question where the Display correct answer item parameter is activated.
  • Always display: The Solution button will appear in the assessment question page, regardless of the item’s parameter setting.
  • Never display: The Solution button will not appear in any of the assessment question pages, regardless of the item's parameter setting.

Display the results page

Select the appropriate option, depending on whether you want a detailed results page to be displayed when the participant finishes the assessment or not. For example, you may not want the results to be displayed for summative assessments that include essay-type questions (since the applications can’t automatically grade the answers to these questions).

Preview or posting language

Determines in what language the assessment interface will appear. The drop-down menu contains the languages defined under My languages.

Note

The content of this field is not visible in the published questionnaire. Notes can help you manage the content or work in collaboration with a colleague and identify items that are marked “To check”, “To complete” or “Check copyrights”, etc.

Questionnaire theme

The Theme tab offers one or more graphic templates for pages. Every page in a questionnaire will use the theme that you selected.

If more than one theme is available and you wish to change the theme, simply click on the Theme tab and select one of the available themes. 

At the top and bottom of the page, you will find the Save button to save the information you have entered, the Cancel button (if you choose not to save any information) and the Preview button to see how the questionnaire will appear to the participant once published.

Adding a glossary to a questionnaire

Using this tab, you can create a glossary for a questionnaire.

First, you must create a list of terms and save it to the library. Saved terms will be available for any glossary that you wish to add to a questionnaire from the same project.

To add terms to the glossary of a questionnaire, display the complete list of terms under the Glossary tab and check all appropriate corresponding boxes one at a time.

A Glossary button will appear in the banner of each assessment that is posted for this questionnaire. All terms and expressions in text boxe that are part of the glossary will be in blue. The participant can simply click on the terms and expressions in blue to display the glossary definition.

My Items

A Netquiz Web+ questionnaire is made up of different components that are assembled like building blocks to form the questions. Items are the essential components of any question.

NOTE: One should not confuse items (which are part of the questionnaire) with questions (which are part of the published assessment). The item can be seen as one of the Netquiz Web+ building blocks that you use in preparing the pages of your questionnaire, whether the pages are in fact questions or pages used to frame your questionnaire. A question is shown to participants in the assessment and requires an answer. This means that questions are built based on items to which you can add images, video or sound files in order to create a multimedia questionnaire that can be used to publish one or several assessments.

Items are recorded in the Library of a Netquiz Web+ project. That way you can file and reuse an item in many different questionnaires belonging to the same project. You can build 15 different types of items, 14 of which are designed to interact with the participant as question pages. The last type, Page, is used to build intermediary pages, as needed.

To display the list of items:

At the top of the Netquiz Web+ page, click on Library, and then, in the left‑hand menu under Library, click on My items.

On this page, you can use all of the functions related to items: adding a new item, modifying, duplicating, flagging, seeing a web preview, adding an item to a questionnaire, exporting, printing, deleting forms for your items, and creating categories to classify items.

The columns in the list are as follows:

  • Code: Unique number given by Netquiz Web+ when the item is recorded.
  • Title: Name given to the item, under the Content tab, by the user when the item is created or modified.
  • Type: Type of item chosen from the Add new item menu when the item is created or modified. The interaction with the participant varies depending on the type of item.
  • Category: The chosen category when the item is created or modified. Although it is not essential for items to belong to a category, categories can help you organize your items.
  • Note: Comment added under the Parameters tab concerning an item when it was created or modified. The content of this field is not visible in the published questionnaire. Notes can help you manage the content or work in collaboration with a colleague and items that are marked “To be reviewed”, “To be completed”, “Check copyrights”, etc.).
  • Modification date: Date and time that an item was last saved.
  • Star icon: An orange star is used to flag an item or items that you want to draw special attention to, whether it is a favourite item or an item to be reviewed or completed. You can flag or unflag the item by clicking on the star next to the item in the list or by using the Flag command for one or more items in the list.
  • Hyperlink icon: This icon indicates that an item is linked to one or more other questionnaires. When you move the cursor over the icon, a list appears showing the title and code of these questionnaires.

Adding a new item

All of the items used in the questionnaires of a project are saved in the project’s library.

To add a new item:

  1. Display the list of items by clicking on Library at the top of the Netquiz Web+ page or, in the left-hand menu, under Library, click on My items.
  2. Move the cursor over the command Adding a new item, to the right of My items, and choose the type of item you wish to add.

Classification item

A Classification item asks participants to place elements into the appropriate file folder. This item type can offer anywhere from 2 to 6 file folders. You can choose either text or image formats for the elements to be filed and the titles of their respective folders.

At the top and bottom of the page, you can use the Save button to save the information you have entered, Cancel if you choose not to save the new information, and Preview to see how the item will appear when published. This last command allows you to see the item exactly as it will appear to participants.

Note that when you add an item to the library of a given project for which you have invited people to collaborate with you, this item will also be available for them to consult or modify as needed. In addition, if one of the collaborators modifies an item, the modified version of the item will appear in all of the questionnaires and assessments that use this item.

Three tabs are used to define the item: Content, Add-ons and Parameters.

CONTENT OF A CLASSIFICATION ITEM

The Content tab is used to define what makes up the item. By default, a Classification item includes two file folders.

Item title

The item title is the same as the question title. This is the title displayed for participants and in the Title column in the list of items.

Item type

The item type is Classification.

Question text

Enter the instruction that will be shown to participants. Use the editing tools as needed.

Step 1 – DEFINING THE FILE FOLDERS

There is a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 6 folders. The folder types are: 

  • Image/Image
  • Image/Text
  • Text/Image
  • Text/Text

The first word of the pair describes the sort of label used for the folder titles (using images or text), whereas the second determines whether the elements to be filed will be images or texts. If you want your titles to be in Text format, write the title in the input field. If you want your titles to be in Image format, you can use an image file already saved in your library (see how) or import a new file from another source (see how).

Feedback

Enter the text for the corresponding feedback. 

NOTE: The feedback fields should be used to give a meaningful explanation or feedback other than Correct answer or Incorrect answer, because this general feedback is given automatically upon validation. You are not required to write feedback, but it is worth the effort because it adds to the teaching potential of the questions.

Step 2 – ADDING ELEMENTS TO THE FILE FOLDERS

A file folder image is shown with a title in text or image format, depending on what was chosen. Place in each of the file folders the elements that participants should put in those folders.

To add an element, click on Add an element. This will display a new element in the file entitled Element without text. Click on this text to display the information concerning the element. Enter the text for the element, and then enter the corresponding feedback.

Feedback for each folder

Enter the text for the corresponding feedback. This feedback will be more specific than the feedback associated with the file folders, because it will be specific to the element itself.

NOTE: You are not required to write feedback for each element, but it is worth the effort because it adds to the teaching potential of the questions.

To remove elements:

Choose the corresponding checkbox and click on Delete the selected elements or Delete this element above the editing zone for the element.

ADD-ONS FOR A CLASSIFICATION ITEM

The Add-ons tab allows you to add complementary information to the item.

Add-ons 1 and 2

This type of item can offer from 2 to 30 pairs to match; however, keep in mind that if there are too many pairs to match, the exercise might become difficult for some participants. A pair of elements can be in either text or image format, or a combination of both, such as images in one column that have to be associated with text in the other column.

At the top and bottom of the page, you can use the Save button to save the information you have entered, Cancel if you choose not to save the new information, and Preview to see how the item will appear when published. This last command allows you to see the item exactly as it will appear to participants.

Note that when you add an item to the library of a given project for which you have invited people to collaborate with you, this item will also be available for them to consult or modify as needed. In addition, if one of the collaborators modifies an item, the modified version of the item will appear in all of the questionnaires and assessments that use this item.

Three tabs are used to define the item: Content, Add-ons and Parameters.

CONTENT OF A MATCHING ITEM

The Content tab is used to define what makes up the item. By default, a Matching item contains two pairs of elements.

Item title

The item title is the same as the question title. This is the title displayed for participants and in the Title column in the list of items.

Item type

The item type is Matching.

Question text

Write the instruction that will be shown to participants. Use the editing tools as needed.

Element and Associated element

A matching item must include at least two pairs of elements. To add a new pair, click on the + button to the right of the last element. Click on the x button to remove a pair.

Select the file type for the element and the file type of its associated element. For Text elements, write your text in the input field for each element. Use the editing tools as needed. For Image elements, you can use an image file from your library (see how) or import a new file from another source (see how).

Feedback

Enter the text for the corresponding feedback.

NOTE: The feedback fields should be used to give a meaningful explanation or feedback other than Correct answer or Incorrect answer, because this general feedback is given automatically upon validation. You are not required to write feedback, but it is worth the effort because it adds to the teaching potential of the questions.

ADD-ONS FOR A MATCHING ITEM

The Add-ons tab allows you to add complementary information to the item.

Add-ons 1 and 2

Enter complementary information related to the question. Use the editing tools as needed. For example, you could give clues to help participants better understand.

The header of an item can contain one or more media files. Add a title and descriptive text to the media files (optional). Use the editing tools as needed.

Use the commands Add image file, Add audio file or Add video file to choose the media file or files for the header. You can use a file that is already saved in your library (see how), or you can import a new file from another source (see how).

PARAMETERS FOR A MATCHING ITEM

The Parameters tab allows you to define the specific attributes for this item type.

Category

An item can belong to a category or not. To associate an item with an existing category, choose a category from the drop-down menu. To associate an item with a new category, write a name for the category in the Add a new category field as needed. The new category will be created at the same time as the new item and will be added to the library under My categories.

Item parameters

  • Weighting: Enter the number of points given to the question.
  • Display correct answer: Choose whether or not to show the correct answer to participants once they validate their answer. Note that the option that displays the correct answer will be automatically deactivated in the case of a summative assessment.

An item is defined in three tabs: ContentAdd-ons and Parameters.

CONTENT OF A REVISION ITEM 

The Content tab is used to define what makes up the item.

Item title

The item title is the same as the question title. This is the title displayed for participants and in the Title column in the list of items.

Item type

The item type is Revision.

Question text

Write the instruction that will be shown to participants. Use the editing tools as needed.

Enter the text and select each pitfall or error to add feedback

  1. Enter the complete text with the errors and pitfalls.
  2. Select a word that needs to be corrected or that will provide feedback. You must select the entire word, with its immediate punctuation (comma, quotation mark, period, colon, semi-colon, parenthesis, etc.), if applicable, but no additional spaces (see how). 
  3. After highlighting the word, click on Add feedback.
  4. Enter at least one expected answer (correctly written or incorrectly written, depending on the case) and, if you wish, the appropriate feedback for each answer.
  5. Check the box corresponding to all the correct answers.
  6. Enter feedback for all the unpredicted answers (optional).
  7. Check the box in the lower left-hand corner if you want to attribute a point to this pitfall or error. You can, for example, not penalize a participant if they apply traditional spelling to a word written with rectified (new) spelling. If so, you must leave this box unchecked.
NOTE: The feedback fields should be used to give a meaningful explanation or feedback other than Correct answer or Incorrect answer, because this general feedback is given automatically upon validation. You are not required to write feedback, but it is worth the effort because it adds to the teaching potential of the questions.

IMPORTANT: The pitfalls and errors can only concern one word at a time and the corrections cannot add or remove a word from the text. It is therefore not possible, for example, to correct an entire word (pitfall or error) by replacing it with two separate words or deleting the word.

Try to anticipate correct, but non-vital changes and all the appropriate corrections for each word (e.g. traditional/rectified spelling, optional commas, optional grammatical agreements in French).

Given that this is a complex item to create, be sure to test it several times before publishing, to ensure that it is working properly.

The arrows above the editing area of a pitfall or error serve to quickly move from one pitfall or error to the next, which is very useful for revising feedback.

To delete all the pitfalls and errors:

In the text’s editing area, select the entire texte and click on Delete all selected.

To delete one pitfall or error:

In the pitfall or error’s editing area, click on Delete this selection.

To delete all the text:

In the text’s editing area, click on Delete text.

IMPORTANT: If you want to delete a word to which you have added a pitfall or error, always delete the selection before deleting the word. Deleting the word directly will offset the feedback.

This last command allows you to see the item exactly as it will appear to participants.

Note that when you add an item to the library of a given project for which you have invited people to collaborate with you, this item will also be available for them to consult or modify as needed. In addition, if one of the collaborators modifies an item, the modified version of the item will appear in all of the questionnaires and assessments that use this item.

Three tabs are used to define the item: Content, Add-ons and Parameters.

CONTENT OF A SHORT ANSWER ITEM

The Content tab is used to define what makes up the item.

Media files can be inserted in various places in a questionnaire:

  • In an item header
  • Within the text of an item
  • In some types of questions
  • In answers to some types of items
  • In feedback for all types of questions

A media file can be chosen from among those already saved in the library (see how) or downloaded from another source, such as the Internet or a network-accessible source (see how).

Adding a media file to a text input field

Netquiz Web+ allows you to insert media files from your library into any text input field where the editing toolbar is available, except for the home page. 

All of the editing tools are available in full-screen mode.

There are two ways to add media files:

  • Add a media file: The Add a media icon allows you to add a media file saved in your library to a text input field (see how). Once you have selected a media file in the list of media files window, only the identifier (e.g., "M53") will appear in the text input field. The media file will only be visible when you preview the questionnaire.
  • Add/edit an image: The Add/edit an image icon allows you to insert image files from another site into a text input field, by indicating the file URL.
NOTE: Adding media files to a text input field can create problems with your page layout. Use the Web preview function for the item or questionnaire to check that the media files have been inserted appropriately.

My Languages for my questionnaires

The Netquiz Web+ user can work with the English or French interface. By default, questionnaires can also be created in French or English. It is also possible to modify questionnaire frame so that the questionnaire appears in other languages. Simply enter the translations into the text input fields of the language form.

When preparing a questionnaire, one of the parameters allows you to select from the languages that are saved in the library.

NOTE: The current version of Netquiz Web+ only allows languages that use a left-to-right writing system.

  • Title: Name of language.
  • Note: Comment related to the language when it was added or modified. The content of this field is not visible in the published questionnaire. Notes can help you manage the content or work in collaboration with a colleague and languages that are marked “To be reviewed”, “To be completed”, etc.).
  • Modification date: Date and time that the language was last saved.

Using the list of languages, you can add a new language or modify, duplicate, export, print or delete language forms.

To add a new language:

  1. Click on Add a new language.
  2. Fill in the text input fields.
  3. Click on Save to save the information or on Cancel if you do not wish to save the language.

NOTE: Messages that you enter into the General messages section will appear by default in the published questionnaire as feedback for a correct answer, incorrect answer or an incomplete answer, when the participant clicks on Submit. To customize the global feedback for an item, click on Modify values for this item only under the Parameters tab, in the General messages in the language of the questionnaire section.

My Assessments

In Netquiz Web+, an assessment is the final, published version of a questionnaire. It is what the participants will be able to see. You can create one or more assessments from the same questionnaire and have, for example, identical versions intended for different groups.

An assessment can be formative or summative, depending on the Type of questionnaire setting in the questionnaire's Parameters tab. Given that the questionnaire forms the basis of the assessment, any changes that are made to it will affect posted assessments that use the questionnaire’s form. It’s therefore best to avoid modifying a questionnaire that is linked to active assessments.

Note: Participants’ identities can only be known within the context of a summative evaluation; participants are anonymous in formative evaluations.

Displaying the list of assessments:

At the top of the Netquiz Web+ page, click Assessments to access the My results per assessment page, which contains a list of all the assessments for the current project.

From this page, there are several assessment-related actions available: see an assessment’s results, export an assessment’s results (in CSV or PDF format), deactivate an assessment, or move an assessment to the recycle bin. Simply check the box corresponding to the desired assessment, move the cursor over the gear icon and click on the action you want to take.

To sort the data in the table according to a given column (e.g. activation date, or number of participants), move the cursor over the heading of the appropriate column and click on the arrow that appears. You can also change the number of assessments that are displayed per page by selecting a new value in the drop-down menu near the navigation arrows in the upper and lower right-hand corners of the page. 

The columns in the list are as follows:

  • Code: Unique number assigned by Netquiz Web+ when the assessment is created.
  • Assessment title: Name given by the user when the assessment is created.
  • Questionnaire title: Name of the questionnaire the assessment is based on.
  • Assessment start: Date and time the assessment became or will become active (at the time of creation or later, depending on what was decided when the assessment was created).
  • Type: Formative or summative (depending on the type of questionnaire the assessment is based on).
  • Status: Active or inactive.
  • Answers to be corrected: Number of answers (to Essay-type questions) that have not been corrected yet (see how to correct these answers).
  • Participants: In summative mode (number of people who took the assessment) and in formative mode (umber of times the assessment was taken, all participants combined).
  • Average (%): Average (percentage) of the results obtained by all the participants. This number is subject to change as long as there are still answers to be corrected.

Posting an assessment

To post an assessment:

  1. At the top of the Netquiz Web+ page, click on Assessments.
  2. Click on Post a new assessment to the right of My results per assessment. A form will appear.
  3. Click on the arrow in the drop-down menu under Choose a questionnaire, then select the title of the questionnaire you want to use to create the assessment.
  4. Give your assessment a title. This title will not be visible to the participants. It will only be used to find the assessment in the assessment list.  
  5. Under Unique ID for URL, enter an identifier of your choosing. It will be placed after the set prefix and form your assessment's URL address. 
  6. Under Access code (displayed in summative mode only), enter a code of your choosing, which you will provide to the participants so they can access the assessment.
  7. Select the Assessment period: now or custom.
  8. Click on Post assessment. 

A confirmation message will appear in a banner. Click on the URL in this banner to view your assessment.

It is also possible to post an assessment from a questionnaire (see how to do so).

IMPORTANT: Any changes that are made to a questionnaire will affect all posted assessments that are based on that questionnaire. It’s therefore best to avoid modifying a questionnaire that is linked to active assessments.

FAQ

Here you’ll find the answers to the questions that are the most frequently asked by Netquiz Web+ users, grouped into different themes.

ASSESSMENTS AND RESULTS

I’m a new Netquiz Web+ user. How do I post an assessment?

The quickest way to post an assessment is to first create a new questionnaire and fill out all the fields on the homepage, and then to add items by moving the cursor over the gear icon on the right side of the screen. All items and media files that you add to a questionnaire are automatically saved to the library, so that you can use them again. Once you are done, you can post an assessment from the questionnaire by clicking on Assessments, at the top of the page. For more details about these steps, view the related videos and articles in Netquiz Web+ Help.

Do my students need to create a Netquiz Web+ account to access an assessment?

No. They can access it directly through its URL.  

What details do I need to provide to my students to allow them to complete a summative assessment?

You need to provide them with the assessment’s URL and access code—which you set before posting the assessment—as well as the Identifier, Pseudonym and Group (optional).

Is the identification page of the summative assessment customizable?

You cannot add or delete fields, buttons or messages in the identification page or any page in Netquiz Web+, but you can modify all the messages and button labels on the identification page by clicking on My languages.

Is there an option for students to freely browse through a summative assessment?

No. When in summative mode, questions appear one at a time, and going back or editing an answer that was submitted is not allowed. 

Can I view my students’ answers once they’ve completed an assessment?

Netquiz Web+ saves the answers only to Essay and Revision items. Only the results are saved for other question types.

Can I give students a marked copy of their assessments?

This is not an option in Netquiz Web+.Also, the answers to Essay and Revision items are saved, while only the results are saved for other question types.

Can I send students their results individually in PDF format?

This is not an option in Netquiz Web+. However, in the questionnaire parameters, you can activate the option to display the results page, so that your students can view and print their results once they have completed their assessment. 

Is it possible to allow the identification of students for a formative assessment?

No. Formative assessments can only be done anonymously. However, you can ask for the students’ first and last names as part of an Essay item and not assign points. You will then be able to view the identity of a student by clicking on the dash in the Identifier column of the participant list for this assessment and reading the answer to the Essay item.  

Is it possible to activate feedback for a summative assessment?

Feedback is available only in formative mode and is automatically deactivated in summative mode.

When a summative assessment is scheduled, is there an option to display a timer or a countdown clock?

No. When you schedule a summative assessment, you must tell your students how much time they have to answer all the questions—the questionnaire’s homepage is a great place to include this information. While they complete the assessment, participants will see how many pages there are and what page they are on. A pop-up window will appear five minutes before the end of the assessment to warn them that any answer entered after those five minutes will not be saved. 

Is it possible to limit how much time is allowed to answer each question in a questionnaire?

No. You can only limit how much time is allowed to complete the whole questionnaire.

Is it possible to customize the time limit to complete a summative assessment in order to accommodate students who require special measures?

In this particular case, you can schedule two different summative assessments with different time limits from the same questionnaire and give your students who require it the URL to the assessment that allows more time.

What happens if a student encounters technical issues while completing their summative assessment?

If, for whatever reason, a student leaves Netquiz Web+ during a summative assessment, they can go back to it using the URL. By entering their same identifier and pseudonym, they will go right back where they were. If the assessment was scheduled and too much time has passed before the student could log back in, you have to come to an agreement with them on how they can make up for the lost time.

Is it possible to modify the end time of an ongoing assessment?

No. But if the assessment has just started, you could schedule a new assessment and send the new URL to participants.

For how long are the results saved in Netquiz Web+?

Assessments remain in the assessment list and their results are viewable for as long as they’re not moved to the recycle bin. It is still recommended to export the results in CSV or PDF format and save a local copy.

How many times can participants redo a formative assessment?

There is no limit to the number of attempts in a formative assessment. Participants can redo questionnaires and/or questions as many times as they want.

CHEATING AND PLAGIARISM

Are there options in Netquiz Web+ to prevent participants from sharing or minimizing the screen and to supervise them using a webcam in order to prevent plagiarism and cheating?

Netquiz Web+ doesn’t have those options, but you can still use a videoconferencing app to supervise your virtual classroom during an assessment.

To prevent cheating, you could randomize the presentation of certain items and elements, or have Netquiz Web+ select a certain number of items from a bank of items in questionnaires with no sections. To learn more, view the related articles in Netquiz Web+ Help.

Is there an option to keep a student from doing the same summative assessment several times from the URL and access code provided?

As long as an assessment is active, a student could access it using different identifiers. To prevent this, it is highly recommended to limit access to the assessment by setting a start and end time, and by allowing students only the minimum amount of time required to answer all the questions. This way, students won’t have time to do the assessment several times, and the assessment will automatically become inactive at the end of the scheduled period.

Is it possible to limit access to a summative assessment to certain people or certain groups?

Netquiz Web+ doesn’t offer the option to preregister certain people or groups, or to limit access to those people.

CREATING QUESTIONNAIRES AND ITEMS

Can several questions be added to the same page?

In Netquiz Web+, an item corresponds to a single question and a single page. However, you can include several blanks, highlights or selections to a Fill in the blanks, Highlight or Revision item, but there is only one Submit button per page.

Can mathematical expressions in LaTeX format be included, for instance with MathJax, when writing questions?

Yes. The MathJax library has been integrated into Netquiz Web+, and you can input mathematical expressions (e.g., || y = 2x ||) in most of the text fields. You can preview your formula by generating an overview of your item or questionnaire.

Note that the vertical double lines serve as start and close delimiters for the formula. To learn the syntax for mathematical formulas and see examples, please refer to http://www.hostmath.com/ or http://arachnoid.com/latex/.

Where is the mathematical formula editor in Netquiz Web+?

Netquiz Web+ does not include a mathematical formula editor. You can use an online formula editor that is compatible with MathJax (e.g., http://www.hostmath.com/), and copy-and-paste the syntax of the formula in Netquiz Web+ by adding double vertical lines before and after the formula (e.g., || y = 2x ||).

Can a PDF file be inserted in a questionnaire?

This cannot be done unless you have a hyperlink to the file. If you have a link, you can simply insert it under the Add-ons tab, for example.

I created a questionnaire with 25 questions, and I chose to randomize 20 of those 25 questions. However, I would also like to make 2 of the 25 questions mandatory. Can I do that?

Netquiz Web+ does not allow you to make certain questions mandatory among a bank of questions. The best solution would be to create a questionnaire with 20 questions, including your 2 mandatory questions, and to present them in random order.

I would like to design a questionnaire that would randomly select items (questions) belonging to three different categories (e.g., five items in the Agreements category, five items in the Syntax category, and five items in the Punctuation category). Can I do that?

Netquiz Web+ does allow you to randomly choose a number of items among those included in a questionnaire with no sections, but those items must be of the same nature or level of difficulty, since the random selection cannot be refined. This means that you cannot draw from three different banks, or force the selection of items belonging to a particular category.

Can the font size be increased or can special characters be added in a text field?

Yes, but only in text fields that include an editing toolbar. All of the available editing tools will appear when you click on the full-screen mode icon .

What is the difference between categories and collections?

Categories are used to classify items, while collections are used to classify questionnaires. This means that categories and collections have the same function, but serve to classify different elements of a project. They are not visible in the posted questionnaires; they are used only to make it easier for users to manage items and questionnaires. For instance, a French teacher could create the Syntaxe, Accords, Ponctuation and Vocabulaire categories, and associate each item with one of those categories. When the teacher assembles a questionnaire, it will be easier for them to choose adequate items from the library.

IMPORTING AND EXPORTING

Can questions be imported from Moodle to Netquiz Web+?

Unfortunately, questions created in Moodle cannot be imported to Netquiz Web+.

Can Netquiz Web+ questionnaires be exported in SCORM format so they can be integrated into a learning management system?  

No. However, you could post the link to your assessment in your learning management system.

Can I export my questionnaires?

Yes. Netquiz Web+ questionnaires can be exported in XML format, which makes it possible to import them to another project, or to another Netquiz Web or Netquiz Web+ account.

SIGN-UP AND ACCOUNT

I made a mistake when I filled out the Netquiz Web+ sign-up form. What can I do?

Contact the CCDMD by email at soutien@ccdmd.qc.ca to inquire about the situation.

I requested a Netquiz Web+ account two business day ago, and I still have not received a response. What should I do?

Check your spam email folder first. If you have not received any email from Netquiz Web+, you might have made a typo when you filled out the sign-up form, and your email address might be invalid. Contact the CCDMD by email at soutien@ccdmd.qc.ca to inquire about the situation.

My Netquiz Web+ account is locked. What should I do?

Your account may have been locked out after several unsuccessful login attempts. Contact the CCDMD by email at soutien@ccdmd.qc.ca to reactivate your account.

How can I access the English version of Netquiz Web+?

To use the English-language Netquiz Web+ interface, click on English in the lower left-hand corner of the page. If you want to use the French-language interface, but want to post your questionnaires in English, select English in the Language for preview or publication of this questionnaire menu, in the questionnaire parameters.

How can collaborators access the questionnaires in my project?

The people that you invite to collaborate to your project will receive an email with a link enabling them to access the project. If they do not have a Netquiz Web+ account, they will first be invited to create one. Collaborators have the same rights or access privileges as you do, except that they cannot invite new members to work on the project, and they cannot activate, deactivate or delete your project.
