4.17. Quiz

The quiz activity enables an instructor to create quizzes comprising questions of various types, including multiple-choice, matching, short-answer, and numerical.

The instructor can allow the quiz to be attempted multiple times, with the questions shuffled or randomly selected from the question bank. A time limit may be set.

Each attempt is marked automatically, except for essay questions, and the grade is recorded in the gradebook.

The instructor can choose when and if hints, feedback, and correct answers are shown to learners.

Quizzes may be used 
  • As course or interview exams
  • As mini-tests for reading assignments or at the end of a topic
  • As exam practice using questions from past exams
  • To deliver immediate feedback about performance
  • For self-assessment
