Importing Quiz Questions
If you have a large number of quiz questions to load LearningCart offers the ability to build your question set using a CSV file and then import it into our system. To get started you can download a copy of our CSV template here. Simply add your questions and answers to the CSV file and you can then import your questions by going to Training > Content & Settings > Manage Quizzes > and then clicking Edit Questions next to your desired quiz. If this is a new quiz instead click the Add Quiz button and first create your new quiz.
Once you are on the Manage Quiz Questions page you will notice a button in the top right hand corner that says Import Questions. Click on that and you can then select your CSV file and bulk import your questions.
The format of the CSV file is relatively simple. The first column should contain your question and then you may specify up to 6 potential answers. To indicate an answer is correct, simply add a * character at the begining of that answer. That character will automatically be removed on import but the * will let LearningCart know which answer is correct. You can see the sample table below. Notice how in the first row the answer "Yes" has a * before it because it is the correct answer.
The last two columns in the file, Correct Feedback and Incorrect Feedback can be used provide immediate feedback to the user after they answer a question. These fields are optional.
