KB User's Guide - Assessment Tab - Quiz/Survey Modules
This document will walk you through the steps to create a Quiz/Survey Module in the Assessment tab.
To create a new Module, go to the KB Admin Tools > Assessment tab. You will land on the Quiz/ Survey Modules screen, as it is the default. If you have not created any modules, you will see the Add a New Module form, alone. Otherwise, if you have created one or multiple Modules, they will appear under the Add a New Module blank form. The Module sequence appearance is determined by the Sort field in each Module.
