Explore the different structures of lessons and quizzes and how they use different types of learning
The main structural difference between lessons and quizzes is that lessons can contain content and questions, while quizzes can only contain questions.
In lessons, content templates are different styles to present information to users. These are the five types of slides:
- List Slide
- Bullet Points
- Media Upload (images, videos, audio)
- Image Sequencing
- Image Breakdown

You can also add quizzing templates to lessons or quizzes. These are the five types of quizzing templates:
- Multiple Choice Text
- Multiple Choice Images
- True / False
- Free Response (**not available in lessons**)

Retaking lessons and quizzes:
Users can retake lessons unlimited times. Lessons will be available until hidden by an administrator.
Administrators can allow one retake of a quiz by checking the Allow users to retake quiz box on the Exit Slide of a quiz. Users can review a quiz (not for a grade) at any time until the quiz is hidden by an administrator.
Formative Assessment vs. Summative Assessment:
Lessons are a type of formative assessment. Formative assessments are generally low stakes, meaning users are not graded on their work. While lessons may have quiz questions interspersed among content, these quiz questions are not graded. Users can re-answer the question until they get it right and their answers will not be viewable by administrators. There is no time limit for quiz questions within a lesson.
Quizzes are a type of summative assessment. Quizzes evaluate users on content they have learned in lessons. Summative assessments are generally high stakes, meaning users are graded on their work and may have a time limit. Quiz answers will be visible to administrators in user and group analytics.
