While we work towards a full launch of Learn WordPress and we build up the courses available on the platform, a new feature has been added to the site that enables quizzes to be added to any workshop. This allows people to test their knowledge of the content they have been learning and make sure they have taken in the relevant information.
A number of the presenters for the existing workshops have submitted quiz questions, which are already live on the site, and future workshops will have the expectation of quiz questions to be included as well. To satisfy the need for quizzes to be graded automatically, all of the questions will be in a multiple-choice format. Additionally, since some workshops are designed to be watched back-to-back, some quizzes will apply to a group of workshops rather than just a single one.
The workshops that currently have quizzes available are:
There is a link to the quiz below the video on each workshop page for easy access for all viewers.
Other quizzes will go live soon, and future workshops will also have quizzes associated with them. In order to take a quiz, you need to be logged in to your WordPress.org The community site where WordPress code is created and shared by the users. This is where you can download the source code for WordPress core, plugins and themes as well as the central location for community conversations and organization. https://wordpress.org/ account with a prompt to login being shown on the quiz page if you are not.
For now, the quiz results will only be visible to the individuals taking the quizzes, as well as in the site dashboard. Future plans could include displaying an average quiz score for each user on their WordPress.org profile, a public leaderboard with average scores, and maybe even profile badges for people who receive consistently high grades.
Not only do these quizzes allow people to really test their knowledge, but they will also provide a measurable metric for tracking the value and success of the Learn WordPress workshops.
