allow the instructor to test for student subject matter knowledge. Students complete the quiz activity online using a standard web browser. The quiz can be configured for a wide variety of options, including number of attempts with varying grading methods, time limitation, weighted point values, immediate or delayed feedback, restricted access through the browser, a physical location an/or passcode, or a prior required activity. Most questions are system graded and the score is ported directly to the grade book. Quiz types There are two basic types of quizzes in Moodle: Standard graded quiz Adaptive quiz Standard Quiz The standard Moodle quiz asked for student responses to questions and will check the student response to the saved answer. Points are rewarded for correct responses and the results are ported directly to the grade book. The quiz may be configured for multiple attempts with would use a specified method of which score to keep in the grade book. The quiz can also be configured to give negative or no credit for partially correct answers Adaptive Quiz Adaptive questions allow students to have multiple attempts at the question before moving on to the next question. The adaptive question can adapt itself to the student's answer, for example by giving some hints before asking the student to try again. If you choose Yes for this option then the student will be allowed multiple responses to a question even within the same attempt at the quiz. So for example if the student's response is marked as incorrect the student will be allowed 1 to try again immediately. However, depending on the Apply penalties setting, a penalty will usually be subtracted from the student's score for each wrong response. Visit http://www.moodle.org for more information. Elements of a quiz A quiz consists of three main parts: 1. A quiz shell or container with settings 2. The questions 3. Question order and point value, layout, and quiz score. The quiz shell contains the configurations of the quiz: name, description, open/close dates, # of attempts, etc. The questions are linked to the quiz from the Question Bank. The Edit Quiz function allows for layout and score/point factors. Available question types There are nine questions types: Calculated, Embedded Answers (Cloze), Essay, Matching, Multiple Choice, Numerical, Random Short-Answer Matching, Short-Answer, True/False, and Description. The Description question is a way to insert information and is not a graded item. (A detailed descriptions of each question type is located at the end of Section 1.) Questions are kept in the course Question Bank (Administration block > Questions) and can be re-used within courses and between courses. Creating questions Questions are most often created directly in the Moodle site, using the browser interface. Each question type has specific requirements and specialized options. Questions are stored in the Question Bank whether the instructor creates them in the Question Bank area or in a specific quiz. Understanding Question Bank categories The Question Bank is organized to include a "default" category for the course and for each quiz. You can also create your own categories. The course and quiz categories are at the Top level of the Question Bank structure. Self-created categories can be placed at the Top level, or as a sub-level in the Question Bank. 2 When you create a new quiz and choose Save and Display the Edit Quiz page will select the default quiz category. This is referred to as Activity Context. The course level category is referred to as Course Context. When adding questions to a quiz, you may choose any category to add new questions. You can also use questions from any category in any quiz Adding questions to the quiz After creating and configuring the newly created quiz the instructor will be brought to the Editing Quiz page; where questions can be selected from the Question Bank or created directly in the current quiz. Using questions in multiple quizzes Questions reside in the Question Bank. When creating a quiz you choose the questions you want from the Question Bank categories and it is "linked" to the quiz. Multiple quizzes can select the same question. You can also make a question directly in the quiz, but will still need to place it in a category of the Question Bank as part of the creation process. Incorporating random questions When on the Editing Quiz page, you choose a category and the number of questions to randomly use. If a question from that category is already in use it will not be selected again as one of the random questions. You can also create a new category and questions to create, and then use, when selection the Random Question option. Shuffling questions If enabled in the quiz settings, the parts making up each question will be randomly shuffled each time a student attempts the quiz, provided the option is also enabled in the question settings. This setting only applies to questions that have multiple parts, such as multiple choice or matching questions. Including images or url links The WYSIWYG editor allows for editing of text, embedding images, and links to urls or files outside of Moodle. Your browser security settings could interfere with access to these items if your settings are not 3 configured properly. You can also use standard XHTML coding to create the hypertext links after clicking the WYSIWYG icon for HTML coding mode. Moodle uses an "in place" file structure. When files (or images) are added to the site, they reside as copies of the original file/image in that item only. They are not accessible in a general course folder or directory. We recommend as a Best Practice to upload the image files to the Course Files folder and link to them in that folder. Configuring for multiple attempts When creating the quiz choose from 1-10, or unlimited attempts in the Attempts Allowed menu. If allowing multiple attempts you will also want to choose the Grading Methods from: Highest grade, Average grade, First Attempt, or Last Attempt. Setting quiz 'open' and 'close' dates In the General settings area of a quiz there is the option to use Open the quiz and Close the quiz. Students will be able to start and submit the quiz between these two dates and times. If the student is not finished at the time Close the quiz arrives, the quiz will automatically close and the system will score any completed questions. The open and close information is visible on the quiz information (start) page at all times. Open the quiz and Close the quiz settings use dates, hours, and minutes in 5 minute intervals. Configuring a timed quiz The General quiz setting area allows for a time limit in days, hour, minutes, and seconds. When using a time limit a digital clock that counts down the remaining time will appear in the upper left corner on each page of the quiz. During the last 15 seconds of a timed quiz the clock will highlight the time with increasingly brighter red background color. At the end of the time limit the quiz closes automatically and any completed questions will be scored. Hiding my quiz In the Common Module area of the quiz settings there is an option to Hide or Show the quiz link. The default is to Show. This setting must be 'toggled' on and off manually. The Restrict Access function in the quiz settings will also hide your quiz link until configured criteria are met. See more on Selective Release below. 4 Incorporating "Restrict Access" options The Restrict access quiz setting contains options to Allow access from and Allow access until, one or more Grade condition(s), and to completely hide, or show the link with restriction information in grey text (indicating it is inaccessible). Restrict access conditions supersede the open the quiz and close the quiz settings. The Restrict Access function hides the activity from the student. When the Restrict Access conditions are met the link becomes fully visible and the open and close configuration in the General setting take effect. There is an option to allow students to see an activity with Restrict Access in a light grey text color along with the restriction setting. Students still will not be able to access the quiz information (start) page. Grading quiz questions Objective questions All objective questions where you supply an answer will grade themselves. Objective questions are Calculated, Embedded, Matching, Multiple Choice, Numerical, Random Short-Answer Matching, Short Answer, and True/False. If an answer to an objective question needs to be changed (corrected) after the quiz has been graded, this can be done and the class submissions then regraded. Subjective (Essay) questions Essay questions must be graded manually. If there is more than one essay question in a quiz you will see a Choose menu to select a question for evaluation. On quizzes with only one essay question the manual grading page will only list that question. After scoring essay questions you will need to run a Regrade all from the Results > Grades page to incorporate the new scores. Presently, there is no easy way to compile and download only the essay question responses in a quiz into a single file. Regrading a single essay question would involve a manual Update of that question. Reviewing answers From the quiz Results > Grades page you can Review attempt for any a single student's answers or use the Responses function to view answers from the full class. There is no mechanism to download the responses for a single student. The full class Responses can be download in multiple file types. 5 Overriding a question or quiz score The instructor can view and manually change a score for individual questions or the full exam. When grades have been changed and saved the quiz grade page should update the student score automatically. Resetting for another attempt To reset a quiz the instructor will locate the student's attempt on the quiz Results page and delete it. The grade will be removed and the student can attempt the quiz again. The instructor may have to modify the quiz Available and Due dates to allow student access. It is also recommended that the instructor set a password on the quiz and share it with the appropriate student(s) so they will be the only one(s) able to access the quiz. Changing quiz question or full quiz values after attempts You can change a quiz question score or the full quiz score after students have attempts on the quiz. However, the Quiz Grades page will be out of date. Click Run a dry regrade to see what changes in grades will occur. Click Run full regrade once or more to fully update the quiz grade page. View Item Analysis and Detailed Responses The instructor can download a complete set of all student responses, as well as item analysis for the questions of the quiz. The information can be downloaded in five file types with an Excel spreadsheet as the most preferred. Question Types Detailed Descriptions There are 12 options in the Questions menu. Calculated Calculated questions allow you to create individual numerical questions using wildcards that are substituted with individual values when the quiz is taken. You can use a number of mathematical operators to construct your question and its possible answers. For more information on Calculated questions, see http://docs.moodle.org/en/Calculated_question_type 6 Calculated Multiple Choice Calculated multiple choice questions can include formula results from numeric values that are selected randomly from a set when the quiz is taken. Calculated Simple A simpler version of calculated questions which are like numerical questions, but with the numbers used selected randomly from a set when the quiz is taken. Embedded Answers (Cloze) Embedded Answers, or Cloze, questions allow you to have a single question with a variety of answers embedded inside, including multiple choice, short answer, and numerical. Example of an Embedded Answer (Cloze) Question Example of how the same Embedded Answer (Cloze) question will appear for students Essay Students respond to questions in essay format. There is a WYSIWIG editor available for modifying the answer's text. The instructor will need to manually grade essay question answers by assigning a grade and optional comments. 7 Matching In Matching questions, a list of sub-questions is provided along with a list of answers. The respondent must match the correct answers with each question using a dropdown box. Each subquestion is equally weighted to contribute toward the grade for question. Multiple Choice One of the most popular types of questions, Multiple Choice allows participants to choose from multiple answers. There are two types of multiple-choice questions: single answer and multiple answers. Single-answer questions allow one--and only one--answer to be chosen. Multiple-answer questions allow one or more answers to be chosen; each answer's grade may be a positive or negative value. Negative grades are helpful when you want to prevent students from choosing all of the responses with the hope of getting a good grade. If the grade ends up being negative, the quiz will provide a grade of 0 for that question. Remember that it is possible to create questions that have scores greater than 100%, which is a situation you will want to avoid. Numerical From the students' perspective, a numerical question looks just like a short answer question. The difference is that numerical questions are allowed to have an accepted error. This allows a continuous range of answers to be set. For example, if the answer is 30 with an accepted error of 5, any number between 25 and 35 will be accepted as correct. Note that the answers must be numerals, and not numbers spelled out. Using the above example, "30" would be correct, but "thirty" would not. Random Short-Answer Matching This question type selects random matching questions from the current category. Each attempt on a quiz may, therefore, have different questions and answers. In order for Random Short Answer Matching to be effective, you must make sure there are plenty of unused short answer questions in the category. The more short answer questions you provide, the more likely it is that students will see a new selection on each attempt. Short Answer In a short answer question students type a word or phrase in response to a question, which can contain several possible correct answers. If the Case sensitive option is selected, you can have different scores for "Moodle" or "moodle." You could make "Moodle" worth 100% and "moodle" worth 0%, or you could make "moodle" worth partial credit. The asterisk (*) serves as a wildcard to be used in place of any series of characters. For example, use mo*le to match any word or phrase starting with "mo" and ending with "le" (e.g., "moodle," "module," "mole," etc.). Without wildcards, the answers are compared exactly. 8 True/False Another common question type, True/False questions allow students to select from two options: True or False. Description "Description" is not actually a question; it merely inserts text without requiring an answer. For example, this can be used to provide introductions or explanation for a subsequent group of questions. 9 2 Section Screenshots In this section, you will fine screenshots of important elements of Moodle's user interface for creating assessments. 11 Add a Quiz To add a quiz you must first Turn editing on, and then use the Add an activity menu to choose Quiz.

Layout Options to keep the question order as manually set in the Edit Quiz page, or to use Randomly Shuffle. Automatic generation of a New Page for a set number of questions can be set here in the general quiz configuration or manually on the Edit Quiz page. B. Question Behaviour The most used option is for Shuffle within a question. Useful for multiple choice and matching questions. This option must also be set in the question itself to function. Review Options settings Select the review items you will allow for student access. There are three time options for reviewing the material. Use the inline help ? for details. After the quiz is closed is selected by default and cannot be changed if you do not select a Closing Date. A common choice is to only allow for Scores until after the quiz is closed. 15 Display, and Extra Restrictions on Attempts settings The Display options can add extra security by displaying the user identity, based on the login. The remaining options are decimals for scores, and whether course site blocks will be visible on the quiz page. Extra Restrictions deal with tighter security using network settings, password (probably from a proxy monitor), delayed multiple attempts, and use of a Lock Down Browser that restricts the using from using Internet or printing. A B A. Display Options to show the student's picture; number of decimal points in the grades (grade book) and on the quiz question; whether to show blocks during the quiz attempt. We recommend keeping the default settings, except possibly the number of decimal points. B. Extra Restrictions on attempts The ability to add a password and network access restriction; the option to add time delays before the 2nd or later attempts; and whether to incorporate some browser security using a Popup window and Javascript that disable printing and copy/paste functions. 16 Overall Feedback settings You have the ability of adding verbal feedback relative to the student's final score. Feedback is separated by score boundaries that you choose. Restrict Access settings Restrict access will keep the activity hidden until the date or grade condition it met. The activity link can be completely hidden, or visible with the criterion stated next to the link. A B C A. Allow access from/until Access from/to dates determine when students can access the activity via a link on the course page (i.e. hides the link). Uses days only; no hourly settings available. B. Grade condition This setting determines any grade conditions that must be met in order to access the activity. If multiple grade conditions are set, the activity will only allow access when ALL grade conditions are met. C. Before activity can be accessed Allows the option to let students see only the link to the activity with restrictions stated below the link, but without access; or to keep the activity completely hidden. Works together with the Allow access from/until dates. 17 Quiz Grading Options The Quiz > Results > Grades screen: the grading area for a single quiz. Any changes here are sent to the Grade Book.
