Improved Quiz Management Feature: Copy Quiz

You can now make "blank" copies of your quizzes. Here is why:

On January 20th we removed the ability to add or remove questions or change the answer key (mark scheme) of a quiz if student results have already been scanned. We did this so we can expand Quick Key's ability to sync with third-party electronic grade-books in the future.

But for some of you, it's important to be able to change the answer key (mark scheme) or add/remove/re-order questions in your quiz, even after you have already scanned student results for the quiz. 

So to allow you to still update your quizzes, we added the ability to copy a "blank" version of any quiz you have already made. If you need to add, remove, or change questions of the answer key, but you have already scanned some results. DO NOT DELETE THE EXISTING RESULTS IN ORDER TO GET BACK THE ABILITY TO EDIT THE ORIGINAL QUIZ.

Instead, from the Quizzes page, press the "Copy" button next to the Quiz name you want to modify. Rename the copy if desired, make the changes you need to make, and then re-scan the original answer sheets.

This will keep your data clean and let us build integrations with third-party software in the future. Please let us know if you have any questions or suggestions on how to make your life easier. Thanks!

The New Quick Key Dashboard

We have been working so hard on the new Quick Key, we've hardly had time to talk about it! For those of you just joining us, I hope you have a great experience and let us know about what you love and what we could improve.

For the 20,000 of you who have been using Quick Key since before our recent updates, the changes might be a bit of a surprise. It's all to the good, with new custom IDs, advanced quiz-building and printing, and even more to come.

And from now on, you'll be in the loop. That starts now, with this video tour of the new Quick Key dashboard. Take a quick look at the video, then log in and check it out.

And don't forget to join the family and let us know what we should build next!
