"Quizzes" stores any quizzes you create in Skilljar - either created from “Quizzes” or from within a lesson - while “Assets” includes the standard types of content (documents, images, videos, iFrame) and "SCORM" stores any SCORM/HTML content you upload to Skilljar.

If a quiz is not used in any lesson, a delete icon will appear. Therefore, the delete icon will only be available for assets that are not used in a lesson.

 

Can all of my organization’s dashboard users see all of the available quizzes?
