Moodle 1.9 Math Quizzes: Part 1

by Ian Wild | November 2009 | Moodle Open Source

Tired of marking all of those math tests you've set for your students? No problem! Now we can have Moodle do all of the grading for us! Getting to grips with the Pythagorean Theorem is going to take practice, and the Moodle Quiz module is going to give my students that practice without my having to worry about a mountain of marking. We'll see in this article by Ian Wild that the Moodle Quiz module is a very powerful tool that not only automatically marks the answers for us, but also copes with different units (for example, answers given in feet or inches, meters or centimeters). We can also specify placeholders in the question that Moodle will replace with random numbers. This means we can provide lots of practice questions, which Moodle will both generate and mark automatically. Specifically, we will learn how to do the following:

  • Create a math quiz and learn all about the different question types Moodle supports
  • Install and use the feedback activity (not part of a normal Moodle install)
