Assessments Classroom Assessment.svg is a feature within the Magic Box in Classroom that allows teachers to prepare a quiz or test that can be delivered during a Classroom session. Multiple choice, short answer, and essay response options are available.


Purpose and usage of assessments

Assessments allow teachers to seamlessly deliver a quiz/test within Classroom. The assessments can be created within Classroom or they can be imported using a pre-defined .xlsx template. The assessment can then be started during a lesson while in presentation mode, with students only able to view their own assessment while it is running.

After assessment completion, teachers and students can easily view results, with correct answers, incorrect questions, and total scores readily viewable in a downloadable .xlsx sheet.
