Quicklinking self assessments to course content

Students can access a self assessment through a Quicklink under a topic within a course module. This method connects Content to Self Assessments, allowing students to see what material they should have covered before measuring their progress with a self assessment.

Quicklink a self assessment to a new topic

  1. Click Content on the navbar to access the Manage Content page.
  2. Click Self Assessments from the Add Quicklink button.
  3. Choose from the Self Assessments drop-down list which self assessment you want to add.
  4. Click Insert.
  5. Select from the Parent Module drop-down list which module you want to insert the quicklink.

  7. Select Hide Enumeration for this topic if you want to exclude this topic from the numbering system. For example, you can hide enumeration on an introductory topic.
  8. If you want to change the self assessment selected, you can click the Insert a Quicklink icon beside the URL field.
  9. You can select to Preview/view the content topic in a new window or tab.
  10. Click Save and Close.

Quicklink a self assessment using the HTML Editor

You can use the integrated HTML Editor to insert a self assessment quicklink. This is useful if you want to include other information with the self assessment or let students access more than one self assessment within a topic. You can also use the HTML Editor to add links to self assessments in other places in the course, such as in News or Events. See Inserting Quicklinks in the HTML Editor to learn about using quicklinks in the HTML Editor.
