    INTRODUCTION

    Online quizzes and exams can be used to assess students progress as well as be a useful tool for self practice and provide feedback to learners on their progress. Moodles quiz tool includes many question types including true/false, multiple choice, short answer and essay and can be set up to automate much of the work involved in creating and grading these assessments.

    Grades from quizzes and many other activities can be set to automatically push to Moodles gradebook. The gradebook provides faculty with tools to change how grades are calculated, aggregated and displayed, as well as means to change the grades manually.

    Create Quiz and Adjust Settings

    Moodles quiz module has a large number of options and tools, making it extremely flexible. You can create quizzes with different question types, randomly generated quizzes from pools of questions, allow students to have repeated attempts at a question or retake quizzes multiple times, and have the computer score it all.
