Quiz Step 3: Adding Questions to a Quiz in Moodle ISU Moodle ISU
Before adding questions to your quiz, you should have created questions in your course Question bank and added a Quiz activity to your course.
If you have not yet done these two steps, see:
After these steps have been completed, you will be ready to add questions to the quiz.
This guide will help you to:
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: If you would like the order of the questions to be shuffled, Check the Shuffle box above Add.
Note: There is not a Save button. Once your questions are added to the quiz, the quiz will save automatically.
You can have your quiz randomly generated for each of your students by adding questions randomly from your question bank.
To add random questions to the quiz:
Note: There is not a Save button. Once the questions are added to the quiz, the quiz will save automatically.
The maximum grade of a quiz is determined in the quiz settings. For example: A quiz with 20 questions could have a maximum grade of 20 points. This makes each correct answer worth 1 point. However if you set the maximum grade at 40 but only had 20 questions that would make each question worth 2 points.
To set question points:
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: To save the change to the weight you must Press Enter. If you click off of the weight, it will cancel.
To set the maximum grade:
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 ITRC - (208)-282-5880 or email email@example.com.
Note: There is not a Save button. Once you move the questions, the quiz will be automatically saved.
Instructors can add a page within a quiz. Pages creates breaks between questions. An instructor can add pages either by repaginating or by manually adding the pages between the questions.
Note: 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.
To add pages by repaginating:
Manually Add a Page
Manually Remove a Page
Previewing a quiz allows an instructor to view a quiz in the eyes of a student. This allows the instructor to review the quiz formating and to look for errors.
To preview a quiz:
Note: You can also preview individual questions in the Edit quiz section by clicking on the magnifying glass.
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 the same 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.
