You can fork, or copy, CodeHS quizzes to customize them for your students. Once you fork a CodeHS quiz, you can edit or remove existing questions or add your own questions to the quiz.

What Does 'Fork' Mean?

When you fork a program or, in this case, a CodeHS quiz, it means that you are making your own copy to work on, and any changes you make will not affect the original. In this case, forking a CodeHS quiz allows you to make your own copy of the quiz to work on, without affecting the original quiz.

What Happens to the Original Quiz?

When you fork a CodeHS quiz, the original quiz is not affected in any way - if it was assigned to your students, it will still be assigned, and none of the content will be affected by any changes you make to the duplicate.

After forking a quiz, you can unassign or delete the original to avoid having students take two quizzes. Please note that if you fork an unassigned quiz, the copy will also be unassigned.
