How to Create a Quiz Learning Activity (Legacy)

Pro Trainer
Learning Center
High Volume & Corporate
 We have introduced the new powerful and flexible Assessment Builder. You can find more information about the new Assessments and Certificates here. You can learn how to migrate your existing Assessments here. 

In this article, you will find more information on how to create a legacy quiz learning activity. This learning activity works as a self-assessment tool where users will get immediate feedback on their answers, however, they are not getting a score at the end of the test. 


  • The answers given in the Quiz learning activity do not get stored in the Gradebook since they are not graded. We suggest using our new Assessment Builder, where responses are stored. 
  • If you want to create a formal test, you can consider the Exam learning activity.
