How To Add MemberPress Quizzes to Courses

Similar to adding lessons, you can add unlimited MemberPress quizzes to any MemberPress course.

This document will show you how to design MemberPress Quizzes, add them to your courses, and manage them. 

Designing MemberPress Quizzes

MemberPress Quiz editor is (Gutenberg) block-based. This means you can design quizzes according to your needs like any other WordPress post.

Also, quizzes come with a separate MemberPress quiz block for each question type:

  • Multiple Choice
  • Multiple Answer Question
  • True/False Question
  • Short Answer
  • Essay
  • Fill in the Blanks
  • Sort the Values
  • Match Matrix
  • Likert Scale

Therefore, within the quiz editor, you can design quizzes by combining any Gutenberg block with the MemberPress quiz question blocks:

  1. Access the quiz editor.
  2. Click the + icon or the block inserter to access blocks. 
  3. Find a block you need, and click on it to add the block to your quiz content. 
  4. Next, edit and customize each block using the block-specific settings.
  5. Click Update to save the changes.

Note: MemberPress quiz blocks are available only within the Quiz editor. Thus, these blocks will not be available on your lessons, courses, or any other WordPress post.

Quiz Completion Settings

Each MemberPress quiz comes with additional post settings inside the Quiz editor, including the quiz completion settings. You can use these settings to define the criteria students must meet to complete the quiz.

Here, you can set any question as required, set the minimum passing score, and allow retakes.

Required Questions

When you set a question as required, it prevents students from skipping it. Therefore, students won’t be able to submit the quiz without answering all required questions:

  1. Click on the quiz question block.
  2. Under the block-specific settings, toggle on the Required option.

When students try submitting the quiz without answering the required questions, MemberPress will display a message indicating questions needing answers.

Required Questions Message

Require Passing Score

If you plan on using quizzes to test your students' knowledge, you might want to set the quiz passing score.

To set the minimal passing score for a specific quiz, please follow these steps:

  1. Start editing the quiz. 
  2. In the right-side panel of your quiz editor, expand the Settings option.
  3. Toggle on Require Passing Score. Enabling this option will additional field to specify the required score.

Note: Enabling the Require Passing Score will enable the Require Previous Lesson/Quiz option in the course settings.

  1. Specify the needed score in the first field. 
  2. Next to the value field, choose if this number is Percent or the amount of assigned question Points.
  3. Also, you can add the Failed Attempt Message that will be shown if a student doesn’t reach the passing score. 

Note: If the Show Question Answers option is enabled in your course settings, the answers will not be shown if the user fails the quiz.

Allow Retakes

When a student submits answers to a quiz, this is stored in MemberPress as a quiz attempt. By default, students are allowed only one quiz attempt for every quiz. 

Therefore, in cases where a passing score is set, failing students will be blocked from progressing to the next step. 

Note: MemberPress stores only one quiz attempt for each student.

You can change this by allowing retakes for the quiz:

  1. Start editing the quiz. 
  2. In the right-side panel of your quiz editor, expand the Settings option.
  3. Toggle on Allow Retakes. Enabling this option will add two sub-settings.
  1. In the Limit field, set how many retakes are allowed for the quiz.
  2. Under the Keep dropdown, choose what quiz attempt MemberPress should store:
    1. Best: If the current quiz attempt has a higher score than the previous one, then the current attempt will be kept. Otherwise, the current quiz attempt will be discarded.
    2. Latest: always keep the most recent attempt.

With retakes enabled, students will be able to retake the failed quiz. In case a student reaches the retake limit without the passing score, the student will be blocked. To unblock the student, you will need to reset the student’s quiz attempts.

Add MemberPress Quizzes to Courses

MemberPress Quizzes can be added to courses through the Course Curriculum. Here, you need to add your quiz to a course section, and then add the quiz content:

  2. Hover over the course name, and click Edit to open the course editor.
  3. Next, click the Curriculum tab, expand the desired section, and click the Add Quiz option. 
  1. Next, name your quiz.

  2. Click the Update button within the Course editor to save the course changes.

Note: Each MemberPress quiz block will come with additional block-specific settings

Managing MemberPress Quizzes

You can preview, edit, check student's answers, or delete quizzes in any course, by accessing the curriculum of that course:

  1. Navigate to Dashboard > MemberPress > Courses.
  2. Find the course you wish to manage, and click the Edit link under the course name. This will open the course editor.
  3. Click on the Curriculum tab.
  4. Hover over the quiz name to access the quiz options: Preview, Edit, Delete, and View Attempts.

If students already submitted answers to the quiz, editing the quiz won’t be possible without deleting all existing quiz attachments. When you try to edit such a quiz, MemberPress will display a pop-up asking the confirmation to delete quiz attempts.

Quiz Attempts

You can access student's quiz attempts for any quiz through the course Curriculum. The View Attempts link next to every quiz will open the Quiz Attempts page for that specific quiz.

If a student submits answers for the quiz, the student will be listed on the Quiz Attempts page.

View Student Answers

You can access the answers of each student who submitted the quiz on the quiz's attempts page:

  1. Access the Quiz Attempts page of the specific quiz.
  2. Find the student in the attempts list.
  3. Hover over the student's name, and click the View link.
  1. This will trigger a popup, showing you the quiz answers that the student submitted.

When students submit a quiz, they won’t have access to their answers, nor will they be able to modify them. 

Reset Quiz Attempts

As mentioned, it's possible a student reached the quiz attempt limit without reaching a passing score.

In this case, the student will be blocked, and you'll need to remove the attempts to enable additional attempts:

  1. Access the Quiz Attempts page of the quiz that is blocking the student.
  2. Hover over the student's name, and click the Reset Attempts button in the popup to reset the student's attempts. This will unblock a student allowing additional retakes.
  1. Alternatively, you can completely delete the answers a student submitted by clicking the Delete link.
