Getting Started with InQuizitive

InQuizitive works on computers, tablets, and smartphones and integrates with the Norton Ebook Reader and other Digital Toolkit products. This page provides details on how users can access InQuizitive and then manage their associated settings.


How do I log in?

  1. Log in to your textbook's digital product homepage using your email address and Norton instructor account password.
  2. Once you're signed in, click on the "Getting Started" button for directions on how to set up your InQuizitive section and for registration instructions to distribute to students.

Are there any how-to videos available?

How should I use InQuizitive in my classroom?

Since InQuizitive is formative assessment, it’s not intended to be used as high-stakes testing.

It is beneficial to assign InQuizitive activities as pre-lecture assignments to ensure students have read the course materials before coming to class.

To incentivize completion of InQuizitive activities, it’s important to assign them for a grade, however, consider weighting InQuizitive as a relatively small part of students' overall course grade (e.g., 5–10%).

How do students register for InQuizitive?

Students can access InQuizitive in three ways: An InQuizitive registration code comes for free with new copies of select Norton textbooks. Contact your local Norton representative to ensure you've ordered a version of your textbook that comes with InQuizitive access. Students can purchase access to InQuizitive online. Students can access InQuizitive for three weeks through trial access. At the end of three weeks, students will have to enter a registration code or purchase access online.

How do students join my InQuizitive section?

InQuizitive sections are called Student Sets.

To view your students’ grades and other activity data, you will need to create a Student Set for your class section, and then have students join this Student Set.

Here’s how to create a Student Set:

After logging in to the digital product homepage for your textbook, click the gear menu at the top right of the page and select “Manage Student Sets."

Click “Create New Student Set.”

Select the type of Student Set you would like to create.

Follow the instructions from there to create a Student Set. Make note of the Student Set ID and distribute it to students.

Last, here's how students add themselves to your Student Set.

Note: If you're using LMS integration, you don't need to create a Student Set. A Student Set will be automatically created and students will be automatically added to it after registration.

Adding a Co-Instructor, a Scoring TA, or a TA to your Student Set

To add a Co-Instructor, a Scoring TA, or a TA to your Student Set, do the following:

  1. Go to the gear menu in the top right corner of your screen. Then, click “Manage Student Sets.”

  1. Click the “Update” button next to the Student Set to which you would like to add a Co-Instructor, a Scoring Teaching Assistant, or a Teaching Assistant.
  2. In the “Add a New Member” section of the edit window, select the level of access you would like to give the person who you are adding to your Student Set.  For a comparison of the four different roles, please see the “Overview of Roles’ Permissions” section.
  3. Type in the person’s first and last name, and email address. Then click “Add to Student Set.”
  1. If adding a co-instructor, the person you are adding must have a Norton account with full instructor privileges. For help with this, please contact the Norton Help Desk.
  2. If you are adding a Scoring Teacher’s Assistant or a Teacher’s Assistant, this person does not have to have a pre-existing Norton account. In the case that they do not have a Norton account, Smartwork5 will send them an email with log in instructions once you add them to your Student Set.
  3. Note: If you are adding a student as a Scoring Teacher’s Assistant or Teacher’s Assistant, you are changing their permissions in all Norton products. If they are enrolled as a student in another Student Set, please have them register with a separate email address when logging in as a Teacher’s Assistant or a Scoring Teacher’s Assistant.
  4. You can freely change a Teacher’s Assistant account to a Scoring Teacher’s Assistant account, and vise versa.
