From your “My Courses” page, navigate to the course you would like to create a customized assessment for and click the green “View” button.


Create Assessment

On the course page, click “Create Assessment” under the “Course Assessments” heading which is located to the right of the course lessons list.

Select Lessons

Select all of the lessons you wish to include in the assessment. Next, scroll to the bottom of the lesson list and click the green “Next” button located on the right side of the page.


Search for Items

The next screen will have nothing listed. Click the “Find Items” button to show all the interactive items associated with the lessons you chose in Step 3.

NOTE: Each item is listed with a CEV code number such as CEV70574_SN06_21.

We are working to change this, so items will appear with the lesson title and question type (for example, Organizational Structures Student Notes).

Pro Tip

Use the following key to help you identify what type of question each item is:

SN = Student Notes  |  Assess = Assessment  |  WS = Worksheet  |  Vocab = Vocabulary


Narrow Your Search

Depending on the number of lessons you chose, there are likely thousands of questions available for you to choose from. Use the search bar to filter your results by keyword.

Type a keyword such as "Résumé" into the search bar and click the search button.

NOTE: There will be a slight delay as the system searches through questions to find those that match your keyword.

Pro Tip

Using the key from Step 5 type “_assess” in the search bar to bring up all assessments.

Typing “_SN” will bring up only student notes questions.
