A step-by-step guide to creating an online quiz in SC Training (formerly EdApp)

It only takes a few minutes to create an online quiz with SC Training (formerly EdApp)’s easy test maker called Rapid Refresh. This feature allows you to efficiently create simple interactive quizzes that you can send out in adjustable intervals to reinforce knowledge retention. As we mentioned earlier, it’s all simple and intuitive so you don’t have to worry. We’ve written a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the platform.

Step 1: Go to the Rapid Refresh Quizzes tab

Once you’ve created your admin SC Training (formerly EdApp) account for free, click the ‘Rapid Refresh Quizzes’ tab under the ‘Content’ dropdown menu. 

Rapid refresh step 1: go to rapid refresh quizzes tab

On the Rapid Refresh Quizzes tab, click on ‘Get started.’ Then, a window will appear and ask you to upload your questions. Choose ‘Download template’ to download the spreadsheet template (.xls) where you’ll add your questions.

Step 2: Add your questions and answers

Rapid Refresh quizzes follow a simple multiple-choice questions template. The spreadsheet template consists of an instruction page, an example tab, and 'FILL ME OUT' tab. The 'FILL ME OUT' tab is where you will be entering your quiz questions.

Template breakdown

  • Column B: Enter questions here
  • Column C-H: Add your multiple choice answers here. There needs to be at least two to choose from.
  • Column I: Pick which one of your options will be the correct answer. Multiple correct answers can be added by using a comma plus a space (e.g. “A, C”)
  • Column J: Enter a reinforcement message here. This text will appear right after your learners answer the question. The message will be the same regardless if they answered correctly or incorrectly, so make sure that the message fits both outcomes.

Once you’ve completed the template, click ‘Choose file’ to upload your .xlsx file. Then click ‘Upload my file.’ Click ‘Continue.’ Then proceed to the next step after clicking ‘Schedule Quiz.’

Step 3: Select a quiz type

Select your delivery dates. Then choose one of the following quiz types:

  • One Session: This is a one-sitting quiz. Your learners will receive all the questions in this session, so if you want them to finish the quiz in one go, use this type.
  • Spaced Session: Questions will be spread evenly throughout multiple sessions. You can pick how many questions are delivered per session and the frequency of each session. This is effective for long-term training where you’re trying to engage your learners continuously.

Step 4: Customize your quiz

Go to ‘Settings’ at the top right corner. From here you can do the following:

  • Assign the quiz to different user groups.
  • Set prerequisites. You can lock your quizzes behind certain courses your learners need to take beforehand.
  • Customize quiz branding. This includes colors, logos, etc.
  • Adjust translations or language for your buttons.

Step 5: Deliver your quiz

Once you’ve set everything up, your quiz should be automatically available to your learners. The following things will also be automatically available after you’ve created your quiz:

  • Leaderboards: This is enabled by default but can be switched off on the configurations page. The leaderboard for the quiz will automatically update as soon as a learner finishes a quiz in the series. How quickly a user reaches a score is also taken into account.
  • Analytics: A list of all of your quizzes can be viewed on the ‘Analytics’ menu where you can find information on individual or user group performances. For user groups, you can see the percentage of attempted and correctly answered questions. While for user performance, you can view a breakdown of time spent, question performance, and total correct answers.
  • Notifications: You can send learners Rapid Refresh reminders through email or push notifications. These are on by default but can be disabled manually. You can even use APIs to send Slack notifications via webhooks. 

What is the best free online quiz maker?

So, you might still be asking if SC Training (formerly EdApp) is the best quiz maker free out there even if it’s not primarily a quiz creator. SC Training (formerly EdApp) aims to be a holistic solution to all of your training problems. Why only use one feature when you can have more at no additional cost? Aside from Rapid Refresh, you can create interactive quizzes directly for your courses, so you don’t have to separate your lessons from your tests. This makes learning more efficient and engaging.

SC Training (formerly EdApp) creator tool preview for quizzes

And as we mentioned, the SC Training (formerly EdApp) course creator tool has over 80 different content, game, and quiz templates so you don’t just stick with the same multiple choice question types. Here are some examples of dynamic quiz templates that’ll make your next course so much more fun:

1. Categorize

This template asks your learners to drag and drop a statement or word into the correct category. This is commonly used for True or False questions but you can edit the categories to reflect anything you want.

2. Chat

The chat template is a multiple-choice template that simulates chat text boxes. This is great for customer service-related questions that deal with client or customer responses. Again, all text is editable.

3. Multiple Choice Images

To make your quizzes more engaging, stop using words and start using images because a lot of modern workers are visual learners. This template lets you add up to four images as answers to your questions. You don’t have to worry about image sizes or anything because the SC Training (formerly EdApp) creator tool dynamically adjusts screen sizes and image formats to look the best they can be.

4. Missing Word

This is a classic fill-in-the-blank template where your learners need to drag the correct words to complete the sentence. You can even add extra words as distractors to throw your learners off. This is perfect for helping learners remember specific terms in the right context.

5. Dial

The dial template is an interesting one because it’s more specific to numbers-related questions. Your learners will answer your question by rotating the dial to a specific number that you can customize as well. If you’re aiming to improve your team’s estimation skills or simply require them to remember stats, this might be the template for you.
