  • Moodle quizzes ? Moodle quizzes have two major components: The quiz body. The question bank. Think of the quiz bodies as a container for various types of questions pulled from the question bank. The body is what students see when they take the assessment. It also defines how the students interact with the quiz. The questions in a quiz body can be of any type, chosen manually or at random, and displayed in a set order or a random order. 1

  • Moodle quizzes The question bank can contain questions arranged in a manner that makes sense to you. You can create bank based on chapters, weeks in the semester, important concepts, or any other organizational scheme. Question bank can be reused in multiple quizzes, shared between classes, and moved between systems. 2

  • Slide 12
  • Creating the Quiz Body Attempts allowed Use this option to set the number of times a student can take a quiz. You can set it to unlimited times or to a number from 1 to 6. Each attempt builds on the last If you allow multiple attempts, you can choose to let students build their answers over time. If you set this to Yes, the students responses from the last attempt will be visible the next time she tries to take the quiz. Adaptive mode 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 to try again immediately. However a penalty will usually be subtracted from the students score for each wrong attempt (the amount of penalty is determined by the penalty factor, set by the next option). 10

You can use this to restrict who takes a quiz and when they take it. Require network address This option restricts access to the test to certain IP address ranges. If you want to require students to take a test from a certain lab on campus, set the network address range to cover the networks in the lab. For example, if you want to require access from computers with an IP range of to, you would enter To allow access from all computers in a subnet (say, on the campus), enter the partial address you want to use. 16

  • Slide 22
  • Creating the Quiz Body The overall feedback is some text that is shown to a student after they have completed an attempt at the quiz. The text that is shown can depend on the grade the student got. For example, if you enter: Grade boundary: 100% Feedback: Well done Grade boundary: 40% Feedback: Please study this week's work again.... Grade boundary: 0% Then students who score between 100% and 40% will see the "Well done" message, and students who score between 39.99% and 0% will see the other message. That is, the grade boundaries define ranges of grades, and each feedback string is displayed to scores within the appropriate range. 20

  • Creating the Quiz Body The grade boundaries can be specified either as a percentage, for example "31.41%", or as a number, for example "7". If your quiz is out of 10 marks, a grade boundary of 7 means 7/10 or better. 13. Click the Save and return to course button or Save and display button. 21
