Incorporating H5Ps in the VU Collaborate Quiz Tool

Adding H5Ps to quizzes gives the opportunity for more interactive question types and authentic assessment by using content types such as Branching Scenarios and Interactive Videos. It also extends to the list of quiz question types you can utilise. The score from the H5P will be incorporated into the overall quiz attempt score, rather than create its own grade item.

Important Note: Please only use the H5P in Quiz feature for Formative assessment at this time. If you wish to use this feature in Summative assessment, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

You must have either created and/or have collaborator access to an existing H5P activity to be able to import them into a Quiz. Go to Introduction to H5P to learn how to create an H5P in VU Collaborate, or learn how to share and collaborate with others.

Step One: Check these settings on your H5Ps

1. From your H5P activity, select Edit.

1.1 access H5P edit mode

Disabling Retry and Show Solution options

2. Now review the H5P activity Behavioural Settings to ensure both the Retry and Show Solutions options are disabled.

  • The Retry option allows students to retake the quiz questions or redo the activity, and overwrite their attempt scores.
  • The Show Solutions/Results allow the system to display the correct answers to students before their submissions.

You can simply disable these settings through Behavioural Settings located at the bottom of each H5P tool.

Depending on your H5P type, you will see different options as below.



Step Two: Enable sending scores to the VU Collaborate Space

After that, we will need to enable the LTI Settings to send scores to the VU Collaborate system.

Enabling LTI Settings

1. Scroll down to the bottom of the H5P, and select LTI Settings (a).

  • Choose the attempt (b) that will send to the VU Collaborate system. Best attempt is recommended in case students need to complete another quiz attempt.
  • Tick Allow logged-in users to resume content (c) to ensure the student progress will be saved in case of connection issues.
    Some H5P content types currently do not support this resume feature, refer to Content Resume for more details on the content-type support list.

Additional Information: Adding Viewable H5P activity into a Quiz

Important Note - it is recommended to only import H5P scoring types (quizzes, drag and drop, etc) into VU Collaborate quizzes since the system cannot tell if students have completed the activity, resulting in receiving an automatic 0 score.

If you want to import a viewable H5P activity (with no scoring questions) as a supporting resource to answer other quiz questions, follow the steps below:

1. Create a new quiz question or import one from a Question Library, for additional information see the following guides, then return to take the next step:

2. In the edit question page, place your cursor in the Question Text, then select Insert Stuff from the menu bar.

6.1 insert an h5p

3. Follow the same process of inserting H5P in your VU Collaborate space, you can also refer back to our guide Inserting an H5P in VU Collaborate for more information.

4. Once you inserted the H5P, it will appear within the Question Textbox, you can also view how the question will be displayed to students on the right.

5. When complete select Save.

Student View

Once students enter the quiz, they will see the H5P activity attached to a quiz question.
