tools help you and your students get the most out of Quia quizzes.
If you are a Quia subscriber, you can create one or more online
classes in which your students can enroll. Creating a class takes
just a minute's worth of time and offers many benefits:
Benefits to instructors:
- You'll have a student roster and a gradebook showing all
of your students and all of the quizzes you have given.
You can view quiz results for the class as a whole or
for a particular student, for all quizzes at once or for a
single quiz only.
- You can restrict quizzes to enrolled students only.
This provides better security and reduces the risk of cheating.
- You can give personalized feedback to students when grading
their quiz results.
Benefits to students:
- Students can have their own Quia accounts. Student accounts
are free and allow students to review all of their past quiz
results at any time.
- Students can log in to see feedback that instructors have
given them on their graded quizzes.
- Students can organize their quiz results by class
if they have multiple instructors using Quia.
How do I get started?
First, log into the Instructor Zone
and click on the Classes link in the left menu to access the Class Manager page. Click
the Create a new class
button. You will be asked whether students should enroll themselves
or if you will enroll your students.
Which enrollment method is right for you?
is the preferred method for most situations. You, as the instructor,
will enter a list of student names. Quia will then create an account
for each student. You will have complete control over the accounts
and can look up students' usernames and passwords. Instructor enroll
is best when:
- Students are liable to forget their usernames and passwords.
- You have fewer than 150 students.
Student self-enroll saves you the time of typing in students' names,
because students create their own Quia accounts. They add themselves
to your roster by typing in a class code that you have given them.
Since students create their own accounts, Quia is unable, for privacy
reasons, to give you access to their usernames and passwords. Student
self-enroll is best when:
- Students can be relied upon to remember their usernames and
- You have a large number of students.
(Instructor enroll) If you choose Instructor enroll,
you will be prompted to enter student information. Student names
are required. Student IDs and e-mail addresses are optional. Quia
will automatically generate accounts for all of your students.
(Student self-enroll) If you choose Student self-enroll,
your class will be created and you will see a code consisting of
letters and digits. You'll give this code to students who will use
it to sign up for your class. The code is unique to you and probably
looks difficult to remember. It's meant to be, so that unknown Internet
users cannot guess your code and sign up for your class. Actually,
though, your students will find it easy to register.
As students begin signing up for your
class, you'll notice their names appearing in your roster.
you assign quizzes to your students, you'll see their results
when you click on the View results link. Make sure you tell your
students to enter their usernames and passwords at the start of
each quiz. Or, you can restrict your quizzes to enrolled
students only, which will force students to log in. Restricting
a quiz to enrolled students is an option when you are
distributing the quiz.
If you want to create another class,
click the Create a new class button again. The new class
will appear on the Class pull-down list at the top of the
Roster and Results pages. Just select the class you
want to view. You can change your class titles
and select other class settings by clicking the Edit link in the Class Manager.
If you need more information, each
page has its own Help link.
