How do I create a Text (no question) quiz question?

How do I create a Text (no question) quiz question?

You can create a question in a quiz that does not include answers or point values. A text (no question) quiz question can be used as a preface to a quiz or a group of questions within a quiz. You may wish to use this type of question to include a passage of text, image, or video that will be referenced in subsequent questions.

Note: All questions placed in question groups are shuffled when they appear in students' quizzes. Placing a text (no question) quiz question in a question group will likely disrupt your intended question order.
