Non-blocking quizzes allow you to place a quiz within a unit, but let the student move forward within the course regardless of how they perform on the quiz.
WP Courseware quizzes can contain four different question types:
All questions are added to a question pool so that they can be used in multiple quizzes. This also allows you to randomize the question selection each time a student takes a quiz. You can also randomize the presentation of answer choices within multiple choice questions.
For example, you might choose to build a quiz which includes:
5 questions from Topic A
5 questions from Topic B
10 questions from Topic C
With multiple choice questions, you can also randomize the possible answer selections.
Non-blocking quizzes provide many flexible options for grading and presenting results. This includes:
