CLE Quiz Video Series

quiz header imageThe CLE Quiz activity has been well documented here on the Convergence blog and we are always looking for ways to better support the online assessment tool. In the past we provided CLE Tips for Finals, a CLE Quiz FAQ, CLE Exam Tips for Students, and have recently released a video series showcasing the CLE Quiz activity.

Just a reminder that the CLE uses the term “Quiz” for the activity, but do not be mistaken – the Quiz activity is a robust online assessment tool that can be used for self-evaluations, tests, exams, mid-terms, and finals at UCSF.

Are you preparing for an upcoming CLE exam or final? Take a look at the video series below to learn about creating, configuring, and grading a CLE Quiz.

The content is organized into three videos, and a bonus FAQ video. This video series is designed to help UCSF faculty and staff quickly find the information they need when administering an online exam in the UCSF CLE.

That’s the idea behind our video tutorials. We invite you to peek over our shoulders, so to speak, and watch our tips and tricks videos that show you how to perform some basic functions in the CLE.

Below you will find several short and focused videos, so you can pick and choose just the ones you need. These tips and tricks videos will also be posted on the Learning Tech Support Center.
