Adding an activity to a group

 

Activity Types

Quick question

A series of multiple-choice questions that community members can respond to. Quick questions can only be answered once and disappear from the feed once a submission is made. Answers are never shown to other members.

Poll
Members select an answer and are shown a percentage breakdown of other responses. Polls are answered once and disappear from the feed once a submission is made. Answers are never shown to other members.

Quiz

Members select an answer and are informed if their response is correct along with additional information related to the topic. Quizzes are answered once and disappear from the feed once a submission is made. Member responses to a quiz are never shown to other members.

Custom Activities

Only program administrators can create a custom activity. A custom activity can include several question types, including multiple-choice, answer ranking, image selection and more.

Custom activities are either public so that members can see other member submissions (to encourage connection and collaboration), or private so that only program administrators see responses.

  1. Go to group management and select a group.
  2. Select the Activities tab.
  3. Select Add Activity and choose the type of activity you wish to create (poll, quick question, or quiz).

    • Enter your answer options in the Answers fields.
  5. Select Save.

If you are building a quiz:

  • Indicate which answer is correct by checking the Correct box.
