For several of our titles across the disciplines, we are updating and improving the way quizzes are created. There will be five tabs -- Basic Info, Search Questions, Review & Modify, Settings, and Assign Due Date -- when you go to create a new quiz. The Search Questions tab will have new filters, so you can search by chapter, question type, level of difficulty, and Bloom's level (Chapter, Test Bank, and Pre-made Assessments for Math and Stats courses). The Review & Modify tab is designed to make editing your quiz easier, and the order of the tabs was re-done to be more intuitive. Watch the demonstration video to learn more.
