Go to WordPress > Courses > Course Builder

Expand a section to see lessons and select option to Add a quiz or Edit Quiz.

Either create a new quiz or select “Add Existing Quiz” to clone a quiz from another lesson or to attach a quiz that’s currently not associated with any lessons.


Give your quiz a title.
