Assessment Templates allow a course author to integrate assessment questions into rich, HTML content, and decide where the questions should appear. By allowing the author this ability, they can more easily create the desired flow for their course content while still taking advantage of the Buzz assessment tools and analytics.

These videos will walk you through two examples of Assessment Templates and allow you to follow along. While the videos below are broken apart by section, you can watch the entire video unedited (23:34).

This is fantastic! I agree that the assessment looks a lot less like a traditional test and yet still offers the opportunity for both the student and teacher to check understanding. 

Would it be possible to add the zip file for the Studying Cells example as another attachment? This really looks nice in the Buzz frame and it would be helpful to see how the text and callouts are styled.

Thank you!

What is the code that I need to place into an assessment template that allows for teachers to create unending questions. In other words, instead of putting in the <a:question/> code which indicates a set number of questions. What is the code for allowing a teacher to create any amount of questions, have the template wrapper of a content template (this was a different article than this one) and be an assessment template.

Assessment Templates actually do not have a function to do "unending questions." They were built and designed specifically to be applied to a specific set of questions or, rather, a specific assessment. 

That said, something that may work for you is to place <a:question /> many times in your Assessment Template. Buzz will skip over any of these where there is no question to inject. What that means is that you can put, let's say, 100 <a:question /> in your Assessment Template and if the assessment only has 20 questions, only the first 20 will be used.
