Managing Quiz Questions and Answers in Kaltura

This section describes how to add, edit, and delete questions for the media quiz.  After you click the Start button or select to edit an existing quiz, the Quiz Creator screen will display on the player.

You can use this screen to:

  • Select the question type.
  • Add or Delete Questions
  • Add or Delete Answers
  • Create Hints
  • Create a Rationale (i.e., why a given answer is correct or incorrect)
  • Add Links (only to questions and reflection but not answers)
  • Shuffle the order in which answers are listed

It is highly recommended that you place your final question close to the end of the video. After every question, the video continues from the point the video stopped before the question. Placing the final question near the end keeps the user engaged until the video topic is completed.

To add questions and answers to your Kaltura quiz,

  1. Play the video.
    1. Alternatively, you can move the media’s real-time marker to the desired point in the video’s timeline. 
  2. Select a question type by clicking on one of the icons. Available question types are listed below. 
    • Multiple Choice – Question with only one correct answer.
    • True/False

  3. Once you click the icon you’ll be prompted to enter the questions and answers depending on the question type.

      • For instructions on how to do so, review the below section, Adding a Question and Answer Link in Kaltura
    2. For multiple-choice questions, you should shuffle the answers after entering the choices so the correct answer is not always the first answer. You can optionally click and hold on the menu to left of the choices and move the answers to where you want them.
    3. For multiple choice and true/false questions, you can add a hint or give a rationale for the correct answer.  Students will not see the rationale until they submit their answers.
