Quiz Categories

Quiz Categories can be a useful way to organize your quizzes. For example, if you plan to administer small weekly quizzes as well as a Midterm exam and a Final exam you could create a  'Weekly Quizzes' category and place the corresponding quizzes within it, then create an 'Exams' Category and place the Midterm and Final within that category.
