Let's explore the differences between a quiz, exam, and practice set.
Quiz vs. Exam vs. Practice Set
In general, a Quiz is the shortest, most common, and most casual form of evaluation. It often implies a short or informal test. Scores may or may not factor into the student’s overall course grade.
An exam is a more formal test with sections that implies a deeper and more final assessment. The format and length of an exam are generally longer and more comprehensive than a quiz. Scores will factor into the student’s overall course grade.
Practice sets help keep students engaged and prepare them for tests with immediate feedback. Students can also earn rewards through practice sets. Practicing helps students focus on weak areas.
While there is no formal standard, these terms often refer to a hierarchy of evaluations — with a quiz as the most casual, an exam as the most serious.
