WirisQuizzes 4.5.0 has a new look and user experience, this new version also has a better performance.

Why are we doing this?

  1. To improve the user experience of the WirisQuizzes Studio.

  2. To provide a more straightforward way to create content and add editing questions with WirisQuizzes.

  3. To improve the speed performance of the WirisQuizzes Studio.

Where are we heading next? Help us get there

Next, we aim to simplify the random variables for WirisQuizzes by creating a simple vs pro mode and implementing a new feature that allows you to change the settings default and save it.

If this is something you would be interested in, we would love to receive your feedback and ideas; please drop us an email at team.quizzes@wiris.com.

New features

New interface

Launch WirisQuizzes Studio button

We’ve renovated the button that allows you to launch WirisQuizzes Studio settings from your LMS (Moodle specifically), now you can activate WirisQuizzes functionalities by clicking the WirisQuizzes logo button as shown below.

Top auxiliary buttons

The top menu will support you when managing the question file and finding support. The file submenu button includes options such as:

  • Import

  • Export

  • View Source

The question mark button guides you to our documentation website pages according to the section of the WirisQuizzes you’re in: answer types, input options, validation options, random variables.

Random variables button

We’ve also separated the feature of the random variable to our settings menu (input options and validation options), we hope this will clarify the clear distinction between these three features.

Enlarged MathType and Graph editors

We know how difficult it can be to insert large equations and design detailed graphs on small editors. So, we’ve made sure to increase the size of our editors to make sure you have all the space you need to be STEM creative.

Auxiliary text input in initial content and correct answer sections

It can be difficult for new joiners in the WirisQuizzes community to distinguish between Initial Content and Correct Answer features. Actually, this single button change can make a big difference when using WirisQuizzes for the first time and the options for both Initial Content and Correct Answer features are endless. To make this onboarding journey as smooth as possible, we made sure to also introduce auxiliary texts to the Initial Content and Correct Answer sections. 

By clarifying that:

  • Initial Content - is the initial state of the answer editor that your students will see when attempting the question. 

  • Correct Answer -  the place where you can enter the correct answer for this question, you can modify the criteria used to compare it to your students' responses using the validation options menu.

Product notification box

We've also introduced a notification box where you can find product information and alerts with valuable links to our documentation and others.

Content edition UX

This new feature behaves almost as a Fill in the Blank question by allowing you to lock the initial content and leave empty spaces for your student to input their answers.

You can access this new feature by going to Input Options > Initial Content > Lock Initial Content. You can see a live example below:
