This is one of many help and support pages that are available about the University of Nottingham's Moodle online learning environment. If you have any questions or queries concerning Moodle then contact information is at the bottom of every page.
The Quiz activity in Moodle allows you to design and set quizzes consisting of a large variety of question types, including multiple-choice, true/false, and short answer questions.
For a description of the question types available in Moodle, please see below.
Moodle questions that you create are kept in the course question bank and can be re-used within courses and between courses. Quizzes can allow multiple attempts. Each attempt is automatically marked, and you can choose whether to give feedback and/or show the correct answers.
IMPORTANT: It is strongly recommended that you only use the Quiz tool in Moodle for formative assessment.
Creating a quiz in Moodle consists of a three step process:
- You set up the quiz activity and configure its options, which specify the rules for how users will interact with the quiz.
- You create the questions that sit in the question bank (a database that holds all questions for the quizzes in your module).
- You then add the chosen questions to the quiz body.
