You will be asked to introduce yourself to the Sandpit members. Every authoring group has its own membership, so it is important to make a good initial impression on the community. Once you have done this, you are free to use all the resources in the group!

  • create short text tests, ePortfolios and other subjective-assessment activities.
  • compile quizzes and surveys from the existing questions in the question bank.
  • add your own questions and mix'n'match to create completely unique quizzes

Try out a few different techiques. Once you understand how the basics work, look for a an authoring group in your subject, and join that.
