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.
Perhaps one of the most powerful features of Moodle is the ability to assess learners performance, and you do this in a variety of different ways. Well, one of the primary ways that you can assess learners knowledge is to create online tests and Quizzes. But before we create our first quiz, there are some setup that we need to do, and you do that setup beginning over in the left-hand column in the Settings block, you will find a link for Question bank, go ahead click on that link and underneath of the Question bank, you'll see four different options: Questions, Categories, Import, and Export.
The basic process that we need to go through when setting up an online assessment is to begin with setting up our categories, once we have categories that are questions are going to go into, then we can begin creating the questions themselves. Once we have those questions, we can then begin creating assessments or quizzes that are the activities that are found in the Add an activity dropdown menu in your main course and selecting Quiz from the dropdown menu. You can also Import question pools from other different sources, including other learning management systems such as Blackboard.
In the next movie we are going to begin by setting up our Question pool Categories.
