New guidance for the quiz tool now available

We’ve recently updated our guidance for quizzes in the Brightspace Staff Resources area. Over the past year there has been a significant uptake in the use of this tool as well as several improvements to the platform so in response we have re-written the guidance for quizzes to cover common use cases and queries and also to include further tips on good practice. This includes using the quiz tool to support different learning models and recommendations for using a quiz for formative or summative assessment.

Over the coming months we plan to continue developing this resource by adding short case studies to share best practice. If you have an example where you have used the quiz tool for a formative or summative assessment or as piece of a broader set of learning activities that you would like to share then just get in touch with us at
