Create a quiz assignment

When you create a quiz assignment, Classroom creates a blank quiz using a Google Form that you can edit and add questions to, and attaches it to the assignment.

With a quiz assignment, you can:

Like any assignment in Classroom, you can choose when a quiz assignment is posted, edit it, delete it, reuse it in another class, and add a class comment to it. For instructions, see Create an assignment.

The form that’s attached to the quiz assignment is set so you can add point values, feedback, and release the student’s grade after they submit their answers. For more information on creating Google Forms, see Create & grade quizzes with Google Forms.
