Customer may need to batch upload Quizzes and Questions in different languages.

This article describes the detailed steps about how to create Quiz with multiple locales via CSV file.




Before we start, there are a few rules that an LMS admin user needs to understand regarding Quiz Import feature.

  • When creating a Quiz, user must define and can only define 1 Primary Locale. Only after the Primary Locale is defined, user can define the second or more Locales for the Quiz.
  • When importing Questions to a Quiz, the Quiz ID must already exist in the system.
  • When importing Questions, user must create the Questions in Primary locale first.
  • The number and order of the questions and answer options must keep same in Primary locale and other locales. This is because the Questions and Answer options are recognized as the translation text of those in Primary locale. Hence they should have the same amount and same order.

Based on the above rules, users should follow the below steps to Import Quiz with Questions in multiple locales.
