Create quizzes, quiz questions, and question pool questions with AI

Introduction

Currently, AI-driven assistance is available to admins in the Learn365 Admin Center to create content in LMS365 (Learn365).

In this article, we show how to use the AI-powered assistance feature in LMS365 (Learn365) to create quizzes, and quiz and question pool questions.

Admins can continue to follow their regular (non-AI) quiz and question creation process even if the AI-driven assistance feature is enabled.

For more information about the methods employed by LMS365 (Learn365) to manage data, ensure privacy, and maintain security in the context of AI-powered features, see this article.

 

NOTE   

  • The AI-powered assistance feature is released in preview. During this initial phase, we reserve the right to discontinue this service at any time.
  • Currently, we're offering all customers complimentary early access to AI features. The future business model will be influenced by the insights and feedback gathered from this experience.
  • The AI service has internal restrictions that prevent the generation of harmful, offensive, or potentially dangerous content. If such content is detected, the service will refuse to generate it. The administrator will be notified in such instances.
  • Due to the nature of the technology involved, AI-generated content may be incorrect. We are continually developing AI-related features to enhance the quality of generated content.

Create questions with AI assistance

Required role: catalog admin or course admin.

In LMS365 (Learn365), there are several ways to create quiz questions. You can begin this process using AI assistance, creating quiz questions manually, or by employing a combination of these options:

Required role: catalog admin or course admin.

Whether you land on the Generate quiz or Generate questions with AI assistance panel, the way you generate questions is almost identical.

This section covers how to generate questions from both the Generate quiz and Generate questions with AI assistance panels.

 

NOTE   

The AI feature can generate quizzes and questions from either text (including paragraphs, lists, and content displayed in tables) or an uploaded video.

 

1. Choose how you want to generate the quiz or quiz questions.

To add content from text

a. Select the Text tab.

 

NOTE   

  • If you've already uploaded a video via the Video tab, the Text tab will be disabled. To add content from text, you'll have to remove the video first.
  • When generating quizzes and questions from text, the text added to the Source text field (either by manual entry or inserted from file) isn't stored by LMS365 (Learn365). The text is used solely for the purpose of generating quizzes and questions and isn't retained thereafter.
  • While the Source text field can contain more, LMS365 (Learn365) can generate quizzes and questions based on a maximum of 10,000 characters. The counter below the Source text field shows how many characters out the 10,000 character limit remain. If the counter shows a negative number, you'll have to remove some content before you can generate the quiz.

 

b. Add content to the Source text field using one or more of the following methods:

  • Manually enter the relevant content in the field. Alternatively, you can input just a topic, which AI will use to generate related questions.
  • Copy the content from a resource and paste it in the field.
  • Use the Insert text from file option to add content from PDF (limited to 300 pages of the original file), Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files. The content from the file will be uploaded to the Source text field, from where it can be edited.

To add content from video

a. Select the Video tab.

 

NOTE   

  • It's possible to generate quizzes and quiz questions only if the uploaded video includes voice content.
  • When generating quizzes and questions from an uploaded video, the video is stored by LMS365 (Learn365) only while it's being processed. Once the video is processed, LMS365 (Learn365) will remove it from storage.
  • If you've already added content from text via the Text tab, the Video tab will be disabled. To upload a video, you'll have to remove content from the Source text field first.
  • It’s possible to generate a quiz from an uploaded video only if the course has been saved. The Video tab will remain disabled until the course is saved for the first time.
  • It’s possible to generate quiz questions from an uploaded video only if the quiz has been saved. The Video tab will remain disabled until the quiz is saved for the first time.
  • Currently, it isn't possible to create questions from an uploaded video from within a question pool.
  • Currently, it isn't possible to generate quizzes and questions from a link to a video.

 

b. Select Upload video and choose a video up to 100 MB in size. To remove an uploaded video, select the Remove (red cross) icon.

The following file types are supported:

  • .mp4
  • .avi
  • .3gp
  • .3gpp
  • .wmv
  • .m4a
  • .m4v
  • .dvr-ms
  • .mkv
  • .wav

2. Select the language for the generated quiz from the Output language drop-down list.

Keep the default setting (Input language) to generate the quiz in the same language used in the source content or choose any language supported by Microsoft from the drop-down.

For more information, see Languages supported by AI in this article.

3. If you're creating a quiz, set the percentage score that learners must achieve to pass the quiz in the Quiz passing score field. The value must be between 0% and 100%. A learner's score is calculated based on the quiz points a learner achieves while taking the quiz.

4. Define the number of questions and answers you want to generate for the selected question types. You can define between one and 20 questions in total, across all question types.

  • In the Number of questions field:
    • Specify the number of questions you want to generate for each question type. For Multiple choice, Multiple answers, and True or false question types, AI can generate between one and 10 questions at a time. For the Matching question type, AI can generate between one and five questions.
    • If there is a question type you don't want to generate, leave the default value 0 in the field. This is a mandatory field.
  • In the Number of answers field:
    • Specify a number between two and five for each question. The default setting is three answers. This field isn't available for True or false question types.
    • If the corresponding Number of questions field is set to 0, the Number of answers field should have a value between two and five. In this case, questions and answers won't be generated. This is a mandatory field.

Currently, AI can generate questions of the following question types:

  • Multiple choice
  • Multiple answers
  • True or false
  • Matching

5. Select Generate to generate the quiz/questions. To cancel the action, select Close.

If you're generating content from video, when you select Generate, a message will inform you that the uploaded video will be stored by LMS365 (Learn365) while it's being processed. Choose whether you want to show this message again in future, then select Continue to proceed, or Cancel.

Quiz and question generation from video runs as a background task so you can continue to use LMS365 (Learn365) while generating this content. As the content is being generated from video, you'll see a progress notification in the Notifications panel. When the content is generated, you'll see a completion notification.

If the uploaded video doesn't include voice content, you'll see a message in the Notifications panel when you choose to generate the quiz/questions.

The amount of time it takes to generate the quiz and questions depends on the amount and complexity of the content you provide.

As a result:

  • AI will generate questions with default settings and add them directly to the quiz or the question pool.
  • The generated quiz will have a default title and description.
  • Other fields, such as for tags, correct and incorrect answer feedback, and so on won't be populated after generation.
  • You can then manage the quiz and these questions in the usual way.
  • The number of questions generated may be lower than you requested because of the amount of content you provided.

 

Languages supported by AI

The AI-powered assistant understands languages that are supported by Microsoft. Generated content can be in the same language as the content you provided or a different one.

AI might generate content in an unexpected language if you provided content in several languages or if you provided insufficient content.
