Before adding questions to your quiz, you should have created questions in your course Question Bank and added a Quiz activity to your course.

See these guides for additional information about quizzes.
Even though questions have been added and organized in the question bank, they still need to be added to the quiz in order for the quiz to function as expected.
Note: This will take you to the Editing quiz tab.
Note: If you cannot see your Question Bank Contents on the right side of your screen, Click Show.

Note: There is not a Save button. Once the questions are added to the quiz, the quiz will save automatically.
The maximum grade a quiz receives is to be determined by how you have the quiz set up. For example: A quiz with 20 questions could have a maximum grade of 20 points. This makes each correct answer worth 1 point.
Setting Question Points and Maximum Grade:
Note: By default, each question is worth one “mark” or weight. If all of your questions are worth the same amount of points, continue to step four.
Note: Be sure to Click Save after every change made to the Points fields for every question.
Note: If you have 10 points, and a Maximum grade of 100, this would make every mark equal 10 points. Therefore, a question that has 1 mark assigned to it would be worth 10 points, and 2 marks would be worth 20. If you change the maximum grade from the default 100, that will automatically change the value of the marks to fit the maximum grade. If you have questions, contact the ITRC.
Note: There is not a Save button. Once you move the questions, the quiz will be automatically saved.
It is recommended that quiz questions be split into separate pages. If all questions are on one page and the student experiences an issue with the browser or internet connectivity, their quiz will not be saved. A quiz auto-saves when a student navigates to a new page.
Note: You have the ability to select multiple questions (or all) if need be.
Hot Tip: If you enter a number to a page that is not already created, Moodle will create the page for you.
Note: Moodle will save the new order and pages automatically. There is not a Save button that needs to be pressed.
Instructors can add a page within a quiz. This sets up breaks between questions. An instructor can add pages either by repaginating or by manually adding the pages between the questions.
Previewing a quiz allows an instructor to view a quiz in the eyes of a student. This allows instructors to check for errors.
Note: You can also access a preview by Clicking Preview in the Administration block.
An instructor can also preview a quiz through the Administration Block.
Click on a quiz in the moodle course, scroll down to the Administration Block and click on Preview.
Note: If you are using a password for your quiz, you will need to enter the password to preview the quiz.
Note: You will see the quiz almost exactly the way a student will see the quiz. Students do not see the Edit question button, nor do they have all the options in the Administration block.
Note: In preview mode, an instructor will only see options that students are able to view. For more information, such as correct answers, you will need to change the Review options. You can change the Review options by clicking
