YuJa (Faculty) - Adding a Quiz to a YuJa Video

This article walks you through how to add quiz questions to a YuJa video.

Why add questions to your video? Quizzing is a way to engage viewers and measure their comprehension of the video.

  • Question choices are multiple choice, select multiple (multiple answers), short answer, true/false, reflective pause (not graded) and decision point.
  • Questions can be added anywhere in your video, but cannot be stacked. If you wish to have more than one question in one location, you must advance the video no less than 1 second and add the question there.
  • Users can skip a question but must go back and answer all questions before they submit the quiz for grading.

Question types:
  • Multiple Choice - choose one answer from the answer options.
  • Select Multiple - choose more than one answer from the answer options.
  • Short Answer - type in a short response to a question.
  • True/False - select between an answer of true or false
  • Reflective Pause - a question that allows the user to pause and think. Reflective Pause questions do not require input from user and are not graded.
  • Decision Point - choose one option from several possible options. Useful for gauging student understanding and decision making.
