Moodle calculated quiz question Moodle calculated quiz question Presentation Transcript

  • Quiz Question Types
    Calculated questions are like numerical questions but with the numbers used selected randomly from a set when the quiz is taken. Calculated questions enable individual numerical questions to be created using wildcards in curly brackets that are substituted with individual values when the quiz is taken. For example, the question "What is the area of a rectangle of length {l} and width {w}?" would have correct answer formula "{l}*{w}" (where * denotes multiplication).
  • Step1: Enter question name
    The question name will not be visible on the quiz. This is for your purposes, to help keep your question bank organized. You are required to put something in this box.
  • Step 2: Enter question text
    Put your question in the question text box. This is the question that students will see on their quiz.

  • Step 3: Grade / Penalty Factor
    Enter a default question grade. This assigns a point value to this question. Also enter a penalty factor. If you have enabled adaptive mode, the penalty factor shows how much will be subtracted from the question total for each incorrect answer. You are required to enter something in both of these boxes.
