Moodle Quiz Presentation

January 24, 2013

I recently created a presentation on the Moodle Quiz, so I thought it worthwhile me sharing it here.

The quiz is really a powerful tool in the Moodle toolkit. If you are interested in learning more about it, below are some links to the Moodle Docs site and the Moodle forums.

    Sorry, but I’m afraid I am going to have to grade this as “Could do better”. Enumerating all the core question types, in alphabetical order, is not very helpful.

    What should you do? Well, I am biassed, but I think that http://jamiep.org/mod/quiz/view.php?id=6 is much more interesting, and also lets you see the quiz in action. (You will have to self-register at Jamie’s site to attempt that quiz).

    Hi Tim,

    Fair point, this is where slides dont really work alone. Anything that was spoken as well, isnt there.

    I usually do a live demo as well, which I didnt want to get into in the presentation as would need to do a screencast.

    The slides were actually specifically created / added toto put on slideshare with enough content to make them meaningful to a point.

    I totally agree that Jamie’s site is great for playing with the different types.

    I have a course with all the different types shown as well.

    Maybe I should have just released a screencast video rather than slides alone, will think on it next time.

    Gav.

  • Tim,
    Thanks for the encouraging words. Great fun and excitement reading your comments. Very inspiring and I’m certain it inspired Gav as well. Great job sir!

    Gav,
    Thanks for putting this out there and sharing it with the group on LinkedIn. You gave me some good ideas, such as including sound clips and images in my quizzes. Thanks for that, my students will appreciate the added dimension to the old multiple choice quiz.

    I also use the quiz tool for CATs – Classroom Assessment Techniques. Here is a presentation that I gave at our Faculty Development Day last December, 2012.
