Quiz Options
Would it be beneficial to have a quiz question number option? On some tutorials I would find it beneficial for my students to complete more than three questions to complete the tutorial. Maybe an option to have 3, 5 or 7 correct answers before moving on.

The quiz tool used in the platform is strictly for a quick formative assessment covering the basic objectives of the tutorial. We found that if you make a tutorial that have too many learning targets where more questions are needed, the lesson may need to be chunked down into multiple tutorials. It is true that in certain situations, a longer tutorial with more mastery than 3 right answers can identify learning, a google form works best. The data is not in the group summary but it can be loaded into a separate spreadsheet and downloaded into gradebooks.

There are also other quizzing tools that can be embedded like quizlet.

I know neither is as simple as the basic quiz feature but it would be possible. Thanks for the feedback and your comment has been added to our "list".

If you link the tutorials together as a playlist, it seems that the students are more accepting, as if it is one assignment.
It seems strange, but in speaking to my students, they don't seem to mind when the playlist has three or far parts as opposed to clicking on three or four separate tutorials. Must be the adolescent mind. I don't necessarily get it, but it works for me and them.

About your concept of lesson splitting to keep always the formative assessment format... I don't know if your students are different, but tell mine to take for instance three tutorials instead one, is not very welcomed, even if you tell them they are short... I believe Brian is right and and the quiz tool should be more flexible...
