Print Quiz or Quiz Key

There isn’t a built in way to print a quiz within TCU Online. The workaround below includes creating a submission view, and copy/pasting into Microsoft Word.

The easiest way to print a quiz that has been created in TCU Online is to print a submission view of the quiz. A Submission View is the page that is displayed after the Submit Quiz button is selected when taking or previewing a quiz. Among other things, the Submission View can display none or all quiz questions, the user responses, and the correct responses to the questions if desired. For the purpose of simply printing the quiz, we will set the view to show all questions without user responses.

To create the Submission View:

  1. On the navbar, click the Activities menu, then select Quizzes.
    Quizzes on the Nav Bar
  2. On the Manage Quizzes page, from the context menu of the quiz, click Edit.
    edit quiz
  3. Select the Submission Views tab.

  4. Select to Edit View by clicking on the Default View link.

  5. Scroll down to change the View Details to the following:
    1. Under the “Show Questions?” section select Yes.
    2. Select Show all questions without user responses.
    3. Unselect all other options.
    4. Select Save.

  6. Click Save and Close.

Now that you have created the view you can print all of the questions from the Submission View:

  1. Click on the context menu of the quiz you want to print and select Preview.

Use the vertical scroll bar to scroll down to the bottom of the page until you can see the end of the text for the last question in the Quiz.  Hold down the Shift key on the keyboard. Point to and click to the right of the end of the text for the last question while still holding down the shift key on the keyboard.

Clicked for the Default submission view (set above) and under “Show Questions?” change the Yes to No. Save changes.
