Generate Random Questions
If your quiz is in the "Math" subject area and the type is multiple choice, true/false, or question and answer, you will see a "random" button in the light blue bar. Clicking the "Generate Random Questions" button displays a screen that lets you define the type of random math quiz you want generated.

    You can generate up to 100 random math questions.

  • Positives and Negatives
    You can generate questions that only use positive numbers, only use negative numbers, or use a random combination of positive and negative numbers.

Using HTML in questions
You can use the toolbar or your own HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) to improve readability. If you are creating your HTML in an editor and then "cut and pasting" the resulting HTML into the field, be sure you click the "Source" button before pasting. You should also make sure you do not include all of the HTML code from a stand alone page because it will not work correctly.

If you use hyperlinks in your HTML code, make sure you have quotes around the URL parameters so MyGradeBook can pop up new windows when they are clicked.

If you want to include graphics from other web servers, please make sure the graphics are coming from a server providing https:// (Secure Socket Layer) access. If you link to pages that are not using SSL, teachers, parents, and students in your group will be shown messages repeatedly telling them that some of the content is unsecured.

Please note that the following are some but not all of the types of activities that are not allowed your in your HTML.
· You cannot include advertisements or promotions for products.
· You cannot link to commercial sites unless it is for educational purposes.
· You cannot perform cross-site scripting.
· You cannot include disparaging remarks in a custom header.
· You cannot include obscene, illegal, or libelous material.

If you decide to use HTML, make sure that you add a space after any "<" symbols that you do not want interpreted as an HTML tag. Please note that <body>, <form>, <head>, <plaintext>, and <html> tags are automatically converted to their textual representations. If they are not converted, these tags can cause problems when you or your students try to view the pages on which they appear.

Special note about pictures and teachers that use the Internet Explorer
This issue does not affect students that are taking quizzes.. This issue only affects teachers that use the Internet Explorer when they are creating, modifying, and taking quizzes via the "Take Quiz" link in the Quiz tab menu. If you are going to include pictures in your quizzes and you use the Internet Explorer web browser, you should store your pictures on a web server that supports SSL and use https instead of http for paths to your images so you can avoid the security warnings that the Internet Explorer will show you when the main page is accessed via https but the images are not. If you must use the Internet Explorer and your school does not have a web server that supports https or will not allow you to store your images on it, you should remember to click "NO" when the Internet Explorer asks you if you if you only want to view secure images.
