How do I take a quiz in Moodle?
Quizzes are used in Moodle by instructors for a wide range of purposes. They may be used for practice, or for larger assessments like tests or exams. Quizzes may be timed; there are also a wide range of question types including multiple choice, true and false, matching, essay, and others.
You can tell if you have a quiz in Moodle by the icon which will appear in the course:
You will then click on “Attempt quiz now” to get started. As you move through the quiz you will be able to track your progress through Quiz navigation. This will show how many questions you have completed, how many are left, and the amount of time remaining (if the quiz is timed). You can also click on “Flag question” as a reminder to go back to certain questions before submitting.
*It is possible that your instructor may not provide the opportunity to go back to previous questions. Therefore it is very important that you follow the directions for the quiz, and that you feel comfortable with the instructions before you start. If you need help with the directions, be sure to contact your instructor.
When you have reached the last question, click “Finish attempt”. You may have the chance to review your quiz attempt, and go back and make changes. When you are satisfied with your work, click “Submit all and finish”.
If you would like to complete a practice quiz, please visit the Practice with Moodle section under the Using Technology tab. You will be able to submit a quiz about your approach to online learning and get immediate feedback on your responses.
