In the previous video, we decided on the layout and format of our quiz, and made the quiz front page. We now need to add some questions to it, so we're going to click the button save and display, where we're told that we don't have any questions in our quiz yet, so we need to edit the quiz to ask some questions. Over on the right, we have a link, question bank contents. And clicking here will take us to the contents of the question bank, if any questions had already been made. Because, remember, that in the settings block of our course, which you can access by scrolling down here and looking on the left, we can get to the question bank, where all of the questions made by ourselves as a teacher, or any of the co-teachers are available.
So, let's get back up to our quiz and click on the button, add a question, and get started. We now see the different types of standard questions that are available for a Moodle quiz. There are other non standard contributed questions, which your administrator might possibly have included as well. For example, we could have a matching question, a multiple choice question, which is what we'll use as our example, true/false, or even an essay question. The essay question is slightly different, because it's the only one where you would actually have to manually grade the question.
The others, Moodle will automatically grade for you, as long as you give it the answer. There's also a description type question. This isn't a question as such, but it provides you with a tiny MC text editor, into which you could give some extra instructions, information or an image or a video that might be useful throughout your quiz. If we click on the multiple choice question, we see that over on the right hand side, it gives us an explanation of the question type to find out a little bit about what it is.
This question list works in the same way as the activity chooser. So we can then click next to go on, and add that particular question. The name is only relevant to help us identify it in the question bank, if we want to reuse it later. And certainly, don't add a number because although this might be question one for our quiz today, it might be our colleagues question 20 in her quiz next week. So, a number is irrelevant. In question text, we write down the question which we're going to ask.
I already have one. Select it, which I'm going to paste into here. And then as we scroll down, you see that we have the option to give general feedback. And then, feedback for each of the correct and incorrect choices. So, this is a multiple choice question, so I'm going to provide the first answer in choice one, which I have here, which I will copy and paste. And then for each of the options, we need to decide whether it's correct or incorrect by clicking in the gray drop-down box.
This is actually the correct answer, so I'm going to choose 100%, which is at the top here. Notice that it's also possible if you want to, to give different grades from 100 down to, in actual fact, minus 100. And then if we wanted to, we could add personalized feedback for this answer, and then we go to continue with a couple of other choices. These answers are wrong, so I'm going to leave the grade at none.
When we're done, we can scroll down and click save the changes. And you see that we have our quiz with one question already. And, we can see what it's marked out of. So if we wanted to have different grades for different questions in our quiz, we could change them here. So, all we need to do now is click add a question again and again, to complete our quiz. In this video then, we've investigated different types of quiz question, how to add them, and where to locate previously made questions from the question bank
