If you want to give students the option to answer an x number of questions out of y number of choices, here are two ways you can do that.

Either option has its benefits:

With the new quiz option, you can

  • Deploy Lockdown Browser so that the exams cannot be shared
  • Check exam log (when they started, how long they spent, etc.)

With the assignment option, you can

  • Use the Speedgrader to comment on their answers
  • Use rubrics
  • Use peer reviews if there are scenarios in which you want people to grade one another

Let us know if you want to discuss the options further.
