Video: Previewing a finished quiz

Now that everything is set up in our quiz and the correct value of points has been assigned to it, let's go ahead and preview our quiz by coming over to the Settings block in the left-hand column and clicking on the Preview button. This will open up a new attempt for us to begin looking at the exam. We will notice that up here in the upper left-hand navigation, we have a Quiz navigation page. We are able to jump between the various different pages of the exam. Since each page has only one question on it, it's essentially the same as being able to jump between the different questions.

Previewing a finished quiz

Now that everything is set up in our quiz and the correct value of points has been assigned to it, let's go ahead and preview our quiz by coming over to the Settings block in the left-hand column and clicking on the Preview button. This will open up a new attempt for us to begin looking at the exam. We will notice that up here in the upper left-hand navigation, we have a Quiz navigation page. We are able to jump between the various different pages of the exam. Since each page has only one question on it, it's essentially the same as being able to jump between the different questions.

We have a link to be able to finish our attempt and we have a countdown timer showing us how much time we have left to take this exam. For each question we can see the question number, we can see whether or not we've answered it, and how many points this question is worth. There is even a button for us to be able to flag to question so we can follow up with later. Since we are the instructor, we could actually go in and edit this question directly from inside of the preview of the exam. Let's go ahead and step through a few of these questions. The first question here is the matching question.

So we will go ahead and select the correct answer of Porietes astreoides. I'll scroll down a little bit. Now this one should be Montastrea annularis, but we we'll go ahead and select Montastrea cavernosa. And this one we will also select Montastrea cavernosa. Go ahead and scroll down in the page. And at the bottom of each page we have a Next button. We can simply hit the Next button. We'll go on to the next exam question. We are asked to identify this particular coral. We can go ahead and listen to each of the responses. Acropora palmata, Aplysina fistularis, Diploria labyrinthiformis.

Now I know this happens to be a Diploria labyrinthiformis. So I will go ahead and select c as the correct answer. And we'll go ahead and hit the Next button. The next question that comes up is asking us to identify this organism and if we scroll down a little bit, here we get a YouTube video preview. So we can see that animal in live action. We'll go ahead and answer this one and what I believe this is, is a green moray. We'll go ahead and go to the next question. Now we are given a true/false question. Hermatypic corals and Zooxanthellae have a symbiotic relationship.

And I believe that is true. Go ahead and go to the next question. And here we have an animal depicted as Aplysina fistularis. If we scroll down, I believe that is true as well. We'll go ahead and select True. And here we have our essay question and our essay question is asking us to tell a little bit of information about this map. We can move around on the map. We can look at some of the other different views. We can go to Map view here or go to the Terrain view or go back to the Satellite view. We will go ahead and scroll down and we have our essay question. I will go ahead and enter in a quick little response.

Go ahead and scroll down to the bottom and hit the Next button. And here we can see that all of our answers have been saved. We could go back and we could click on a particular question and jump back to that question if we want to recheck our answer. We can go over and click the Finish attempt and we are taken back to this page again. We still have our countdown to see how much time you have left. We can go ahead and hit the Submit all and finish and we are given a warning that once we hit Submit all and finish then we are no longer going to be able to go back and change our answers.

It gives us one more chance to cancel and go back and verify our answers that we want to submit. Go ahead and Submit all and finish. And now we are taken back into the exam and the feedback that we asked for is going to show us here are all of our points. On the first one we got this question right. The next one we got Montastrea cavernosa incorrect. We are not given the correct answer here because we told it not to do that yet. If we scroll down, we can see that the final answer here is correct. We could navigate through our exam by clicking on the next question here.

Here we see that one is correct. We can also look up here in our Quiz navigation, we can see that we've got our second, fourth, and fifth questions completely correct. Our first and third questions are partially correct. Let me go over to our third question. We will just navigate here with this. And this was the green moray as what I answered here. When I move down I can see that I'm only getting partial credit for some reason. Well, the reason I am getting partial credit for this answer is because this is just the common name. And if we remember that we only set up a value of 25% for partial correct answer of a common name, here we are only given 2.50 points out of 10 total.

So Moodle is doing a great job of grading this exam for us. Question six is our essay question. And if we click on that and we scroll down, we can see the essay response that we typed in, but there's not been any grading done on this. And the grading is done by the instructor after the fact. So we are not going to be given a full complete grade yet. Click the Finish review button here at the very bottom now that we've shown that we've gone through all the way. And for our Attempt we had a Preview attempt, it can tell us when we completed that attempt and that it's not yet fully graded yet.

We could see how many points that we got for each question. So we could add up all those points if we wanted to to have a good feel for how we did on the exam. This is a great way to keep students from constantly banging on your door saying how did I do on the exam, how did I do on the exam. Well, they know how they did on the exam because they're able to go through it. That's all there is to setting up a quiz. Just remember that the first step that you need to do is go ahead and set up your question bank, create all your questions, then go in and create the exam, then go in and create the quiz.

And then you need to add the questions into the quiz, set the order of the questions, how you want them to appear, set the point value, and then go ahead and preview. If you need to make any changes, you're able to make those changes directly inside of the exam at that point. Now let's finish up by returning back to our main course page by clicking on the BIOL432 link up in our breadcrumbs.
