What is a Quiz?

Available to: Teachers and Frog Admin.

Quizzes are self-marking questions that can be built by teachers to create an interactive resource for gauging student performance. Quizzes are used to test students’ knowledge of a topic or unit – they can be used as end of topic and/or monthly tests, giving you the ability to diagnose students’ strengths and weaknesses from the student scores captured and displayed in the Data Viewer or Assignment Manager.
