Interactive quizzes can be used either alone, or with a classroom of students, to check student’s knowledge.

Agenda

In this tutorial, we will cover:

## How it Works

We developed a small Kahoot-like interface, where a teacher can initiate a quiz, students can join the teacher’s session (using PeerJS), and do a collaborative quiz.

## Quiz Format

Each quiz starts a lot like the tutorials!

title: SQL Advanced Recap
contributors:

Within the questions section we have a list of question

questions:
- title: How do you find the number of records in a query result?
- count(name)
- count(*)
- sum(id)
- max(id)
correct:
- count(name)
- count(*)
timeout: 20
type: choose-many


There are a few different types of questions:

• choose-1, one correct answer
• choose-many, potentially multiple correct answers
• poll, there’s no right answer, just ask the students how they’re feeling!

You can include images in the main area, if you need some context for a question

- title: Which of these joins is NOT valid
image: /training-material/topics/data-science/images/carpentries-sql/sql-join-structure.svg
- Select * From P as P1 Join P as P2 on P1.id = P2.id
- SELECT * From P Join Q Join V on P.id = Q.person and Q.taken = V.id
- SELECT * From S join Q on S.name=V.dated and V.site = Q.quant
- SELECT * From S Join V on S.name = V.site
correct: SELECT * From S join Q on S.name=V.dated and V.site = Q.quant
timeout: 60
type: choose-1


Poll’s let you check in with students, how they’re feeling, or take their opinion on what they think.

- title: How are you feeling?
- Great
- Horrid
timeout: 20
type: poll
live: true


The live key there allows polls to show the results “live” and let students change answers while the time runs.

## Folder Structure

You place quizzes in a quiz subdirectory of your tutorial

.
├── quiz
│   └── a.yaml
└── tutorial.md


## Inserting quizzes throughout a tutorial

If you want to show a quiz at a specific place within a tutorial


{% include _includes/quiz.html id="a.yaml" %}


Quiz: Test Quiz

Check your knowledge with a quiz!

• Self Study Mode - do the quiz at your own pace, to check your understanding.
• Classroom Mode - do the quiz synchronously with a classroom of students.

And then it’s available!

## Default Location

By default all quizzes are found at the bottom of the tutorial.

Key points
• Quizzes are helpful for both self-directed learning, and ensuring that in synchronous classes, students are all following the material
