Update Your Test/Quiz in Schoology before July 1st

Before July 1st Update Your Test/Quiz in Schoology

As it is shared above, this summer, Schoology is getting a makeover! One change we want to be ready for is the sunsetting of the Test/Quiz feature. Schoology has been hinting for years that this feature will be removed in favor of the Assessments tool. And, that time is finally upon us.

But, fear not! All of your existing content will stay, and you keep using it. You just won't be able to make new content. Check out this video for some tips on how to manage this change.
