Back again with a fresh Moodle Moments session never offered before: How to Create Good Quiz Questions. We’ve spent time looking in-depth at quiz administration, settings, and setup. But we rarely have time to deep dive into best practices in assessment, question design, and related pedagogy and how the many question types available in Moodle can be leveraged to create effective and creative quizzes.
And that’s why, in our next just-in-time Course Site training this Friday 10/14, 2022 at 12:00pm, we will be taking an in-depth, practical look at creating good quiz questions, specifically focusing on best-practices, key settings, and reviewing common questions and answers. By the end of this 45 minute session, attendees should feel more comfortable and empowered to create good quiz questions using the many question types available in Moodle.
We look forward to seeing you in this online session.
