How do I create an Ordering question in New Quizzes?

When creating a quiz, you can create an Ordering question in New Quizzes. In an Ordering question, students are required to place answers in a specific order. You can add top and bottom labels to the list to help students know in which order they should place their responses.

When Ordering questions are graded, students must order all items correctly to earn full points. There is not an option to assign partial credit for Ordering questions.

You can also duplicate Ordering questions to create a new question.
