In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
The next step in building our exam is to make sure that the point value that is assigned to this exam matches what we have in our syllabi. If we open our syllabi out of the Chapter 12 exercise files, when we scroll down to the Grading section, we can see that the Final Lecture Exam is supposed to be worth 150 points. If we click back in our Moodle page though, we can see that currently this exam is only worth 6 points. So we need to fix that and the easiest way to do this is to simply go into each question and enter a new value for the Grade.
So if we make each of the first five questions to be worth 10 points by typing in 10 to the Grade and clicking Save, each time we do, we'll see that the Total Grade increases by the value that we've added. So we will go ahead and we will make each of these worth 10 points and scroll down we will add another 10 here, scroll down and add another 10 here, scroll down again add 10 more points to this one, and then for Essay question, we are going to make this question worth a whopping 100 points.
Now obviously if we were giving this exam for real, we would have many more questions and we will have a more even distribution of point values. Go ahead and scroll up in the page and now we can see that our Total grade is 150 points. Let's go ahead and make the Maximum grade for this exam and match that 150 points. Go ahead and click the Save button. Now our quiz is all set up. In the next movie we will preview the quiz into a final walk-through.
