Creating Crafty Quiz Questions Through Moodle Modulation, James W. Sudhoff Bsc, Dvm Feb 2021

Creating Crafty Quiz Questions Through Moodle Modulation, James W. Sudhoff Bsc, Dvm

Teaching Practices Colloquium

When designing our Moodle shells, instructors have enormous freedom to customize their content delivery so that it appeals to students and encourages engagement in the subject. One of the challenges of the virtual platform is a balance; creating formative assessments that accurately represent a student’s understanding of the material while not placing a huge time burden on the instructor to either create or assess. Plain text questions (e.g. standard multiple choice) can be effective but become monotonous and limit the scope of what can be asked. By incorporating customized pictures to your Moodle quiz content, you can generate ...
