Moodle Quiz

Test your learners’ knowledge using the quiz feature!

Easily assess learners’ formative and/or summative knowledge using questions with specified answers?

Moodle’s powerful quiz feature enables to do this by designing and building quizzes with a large variety of question types, including multiple choice, true-false, short answer and drag and drop images and text.

Moodle quizzes can be time-limited and configured to allow multiple or single attempts. Each attempt at a question can be automatically marked, and the teacher can choose whether to give feedback and/or show the correct answer.

They can then be reused by you in a later quiz or by your colleague in the same course in a different quiz.

Moodle Choice

Give your students the opportunity to vote in their Moodle courses with the CHOICE activity.

Would you like to see how your students are progressing?
Or to gauge their opinions and needs?
You can at a glance with the choice activity!

The choice activity enables teachers to set up voting options with a radio/option button. A student can then choose a particular option.

The feature can be used in multiple ways; from facilitating student decision making, to testing a student’s understanding of a subject, or to take a poll to get students thinking.
