The following points cover the best practices, as recommended by Kaltura for quiz creators:
  1. Be sure to shuffle your answers.
  2. Note that open-ended questions are not graded but treated as reflection points.
  3. All incorrect answer options should be plausible.
  4. It is not recommended to use "all of the above" and "none of the above" as wrong-answer options.
  5. Make sure the question is meaningful by itself and represents a definite problem.
  6. Keep answer lengths similar.
  7. Try not to create trick questions, but rather allow for constructive learning.
  8. Use only one correct answer and make sure that it is clear why the others are not the correct options.
  9. It is recommended to place the quiz questions at least 1/2 a second apart.
  10. It is recommended to put the last question at the end of the video to keep the user engaged through the entire subject.
