How do I print an assessment (i.e. test or quiz)?

You can print an assessment with or without an Answer Key.

Note: Certain types of questions may not display exactly the same way in a printout as they do for a student taking a test.  For example, if you have any Calculated Questions in your assessment, they will not display numerical values in a printout, because a single Calculated Question can contain different numbers for each student based on the variables entered.  Instead, you'll see a formula, e.g. {x} + {y} = {z}.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Go to Tests & Quizzes.

Select the Tests & Quizzes tool from the Tool Menu of your site.

From the Tests & Quizzes tool home screen, choose the Print option in the drop-down menu for the assessment you would like to print.

Note: The Print option is available in both the Working Copies and Published Copies tabs of Tests & Quizzes.

OR Print from the Edit Assessment screen.

If you are currently editing the quiz in question, click the Print link at the top of the assessment editing screen.

Select print options.

Select check boxes to choose what content you'd like to display in the printout:

  • Show Answer Key - This option displays the answers for automatically-graded questions.
  • Show Answer Key with Feedback - If you select this option and you have added feedback while creating a question in the Correct or Incorrect Answer Feedback boxes, it will print along with the answer to the question.
  • Show Description/Intro, Part's Title & Information - If you select this option and you have added text in the Description/Intro box of the Settings page, it will print along with the questions.  By default, this option is selected on the Print screen.
  • Show Numbered Sequences - displays the question number next to each question.

If you'd like to display the font as larger or smaller, choose the desired size from the Font Size drop-down menu.  By default, the selected font size is Medium.

Apply Settings.

If you made any changes to the default print settings, click Apply Settings.

Preview document to print.

Scroll down on the Print screen to preview how the printout will look with your selected options.
