Duplicating Quiz Questions in eBackpack!

Here at eBackpack, we love quizzes (tests, and assessments) just as much as teachers do! We heard your requests and we’ve come through with an easy feature that you will love.

We know that some quizzes require multiple questions that are the same or very similar in content, whether it’s the question or the answers. Now teachers can duplicate question in eBackpack with just a click of a button!

Once you have your questions added, simply select the duplicate icon that looks like two pages:

Selecting this button will instantly create a duplicate of that question directly under the original!

What about the answers?

All content inside the question is copied as well – this includes point values, images, options, extra credit, and the answers! You can edit the question and update it with ease!

Have fun!

In today’s educational environment of standardized testing it is vital that schools and districts be capable of giving assessments that are flexible and effective to ensure that students are progressing towards their academic goals. eBackpack offers a world of possibilities for quizzes and tests for every subject, class, and unit.

 

The ability to tag the appropriate state or academic standards to the assessment allows instructors to determine how students are progressing towards specific learning objectives. Regardless of the subject matter (even foreign language courses!), eBackpack is sure to have related state or academic standards available to you.

 

eBackpack makes it simple to create tests and quizzes with multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, completion/ fill in the blank, and essay/free form responses. You can create your own questions or import them from Examview as well as utilize rubrics to ensure that students know the criteria they have been graded upon.

Additionally, instructors can choose:

  • the number of allowed attempts
  • whether to shuffle the order of the questions

  • whether students can skip questions without answering
  • when to provide grades and feedback
  • whether to use Safe Exam Browser (Learn More!
