CUSTOMIZE QW Each time you enter QW, simply click on the set of characters you’d like to have study with you. Choose from whimsical, elementary, middle, high school, sports/activity set or no characters and switch out whenever you wish by visiting the Home Page and clicking on the purple “Change Characters” button.
QW HOME PAGE After selecting your character set, you will arrive at the HOME PAGE. It is here that you can CREATE or VIEW your quizzes or take pre-made K-2nd grade quizzes in Jennabug. The Sample Starters are a great place to help you jump start the quiz creation process. Click on the Ultimate Quiz, if needing to study for a cumulative exam like a midterm or final. Buddysharing your quizzes with select friends is another fun option. There are also “Other Helpful Features” to visit. *Note that this is where you can switch out your study characters at any time.
MAKING A QUIZ This is where you CREATE A QUIZ. First create a name, select your grade and subject, then describe your quiz in detail for easy future recall. Once these fields are entered, select the first type of question you’d like to create from the list. There are 5 different types of questions from which to choose: True/ False, Fill in the Blank, Multiple Choice, Matching, and Open Ended.
QW TOOLBAR This toolbar includes accented letters and symbols helpful when studying subjects like foreign language or math. It is located on every quiz creation, edit, and take page for easy use. Simply place the cursor where you would like to insert the vowel or symbol, highlight it from the drop down menu and left click.
QW QUESTION TYPE – TRUE/ FALSE True/ False is one type of question format that you can create in QW. Simply enter your statement in the first box, then click whether it is True or False. If the answer is false, fill in the correct answer for reinforced learning. At this point, you can Add another type of question, Create your Quiz, or Save it for later.
QW QUESTION TYPE - MATCHING Another question format is Matching. Here, you’ll enter your words, phrases or definitions in the first Column, then the corresponding answer in the second Column. You can then add more matching to your quiz or Add a new type of question. The Create your quiz or Save it for later options are also available.
Multiple choice is another question format and is the most common. Simply enter your question or statement in the first box, then enter the correct answer on line 1. The correct answer always appears in green. Then, enter up to 4 incorrect choices which will appear in red. For variation, you can use “All of these” or “None of these” as options. All or none “of the above” will not apply due to answers randomizing every time a test is taken. From here, you can Add a new type of question, Create your quiz, or Save your quiz for later. QW QUESTION TYPE – MULTIPLE CHOICE
Fill In The Blank is another commonly used question format. Enter in a question or statement in the first box, including a ______ within or at the end of the question or statement. (Do this by pressing shift and the “underline” button at the same time.) Next, type in your answer in the second box. You now have the option of Adding another type of question, Creating your quiz, or Saving it for later.*Note that when answering an actual Fill In The Blank question on a quiz, your answers must be entered exactly the same as the original entry or the question may be marked as incorrect. You will want to do personal scoring when this occurs - your answer may be right! QW QUESTION TYPE – FILL IN THE BLANK
Another question type is Open Ended, which is similar to a short answer or essay. Here, you’ll enter your question or statement in the first box and your answer in the second box. Due to the difficulty of scoring these questions, they will appear on your quiz, but will not be counted in your final score. You can still compare your answer to your original entry for personal scoring. QW QUESTION TYPE – OPEN ENDED
QW QUESTION TYPE – READING COMPREHENSION When wanting to study reading comprehension, the button for creating this type of quiz can be found on the Home Page. Simply Create a name for your quiz, select the grade and subject, and then enter a description. Scroll down and enter your text in the large box. Then begin to create questions regarding the story or information entered. If you’re not ready to create questions yet, you can also Save your quiz and Add questions later.
The All My Quizzes page displays all of the quizzes that you have created. A chart in the left corner shows the number of quizzes created and the type including your Ultimate Quizzes (marked with a “star”), those that have been Buddyshared to you (marked with a “spade”), your Reading Comprehension quizzes (marked in blue), Shared Scored Quizzes (marked in green), Just Logical Quizzes (marked in brown), Sample Starter Quizzes (marked in green) and Jennabug Quizzes (marked in purple).

QW Quiz Edit The QW Edit Page allows you to edit your quizzes. Here you can add more questions, delete existing questions, or edit certain questions.

You can also add a Student ID # or Name as a unique identifier for your quiz. Hint: There will be a pop-up telling you if you have not answered a question(s) on your quiz – you will be able to go back ONE MORE TIME to answer the ones that you missed. It is often good to leave questions blank on purpose if you don’t know the answer(s) – this will help you to narrow down what areas need the most attention. QW “READY TO TAKE” QUIZ
QW HARDCOPY OPTION There is also a “hardcopy” option when arriving at the TAKE QUIZ page. The “Print Blank Quiz” and “Print Answers” feature on the top right hand side is a great pencil/paper taking option. Remember to print out both for easy scoring though – your questions always randomize!
QW SCORED QUIZ This is your SCORED quiz- it gives you immediate feedback on how well you’ve done! Your actual score and percentage will be displayed in the yellow box. Note “Geno the Dragon” - his poses and comments change depending on how well you’ve done on your quiz! Down the right hand side, the questions you missed will be marked with a red X. You can review the questions that you missed and even create a “Missed Questions” quiz to be taken now or saved for later. By going to the Quiz Results, your scored quiz will be saved.
QW MISSED QUESTIONS QUIZ The Missed Questions quiz is just that – a quiz that includes all the questions that were scored as incorrect on your quiz. Whether you got the answer(s) wrong or left them blank on purpose, this “condensed” version allows you to focus on the areas that need the most attention!
