MIRC Scored Quizzes
The RSNA TFS implementation provides a framework for questions that can be answered by users and scored by the authors of the documents in which they appear. The framework allows multiple documents to be grouped and total scores to be computed across the group. The intent of the framework is to allow good-natured contests to be created for students and residents. This article describes the system functions that are provided by the framework to administrators, authors, and general users.
1 Creating Quizzes
A scored quiz is a set of one or more scored questions in a single MIRCdocument. Scored questions can appear in any normal section of a MIRCdocument, either grouped together or distributed among multiple sections. Scored questions are inserted into as MIRCdocument using the Advanced Author Tool.
To insert a scored question in a section, open the document in the author tool and click the tab of the section in which the question is to be inserted.
Click in the box next to the text "Scored Question" and enter the text of the question.
Additional scored questions may be entered into the same section or other sections.
Within a section, scored questions may be included among other elements, including paragraphs, images, captions, patient elements, external web pages, unscored quizzes, and comment blocks.
