It's not that kind of quiz! Creatively using the Moodle Quiz module to deliver interactive content.

K-12

Introduction: The challenge of delivering content in an interactive way

  • 3rd party integration issues
  • Design issues--best designs chunk content into manageable pieces and allow students to check for understanding.
  • Student accountability prior to assessment
  • Need for data from formative assessments for students and teachers

The solution to these challenges - using the Moodle quiz module

  • Core Moodle is more stable and predictable than developing with 3rd party tools
  • Quizzes are flexible – content can export and can be creatively paginated.
  • Multiple question types allow for intuitive design.
  • “Under the hood settings” allow teachers to ensure student accountability and data gathering.

Examples of our use: Content delivery in World Languages and Science

  • Content Delivery for German I –This course exclusively uses the quiz module to present new content and language skills to students. Media content is embedded in description questions and is followed by a series of skills-based questions of other types. Careful pagination and pointed feedback allow students a safe environment in which to learn and practice their new language skill as they move through the quiz. Multiple quizzes may be used in order to teach a lesson of content, thus providing students with interim tasks that prepare them for their summative assessments.
  • Lab Science Courses -We use the quiz module to create complex assignments which allow students a safe environment to experiment and learn before submitting their summative assignment. By carefully paginating the questions and choosing the adaptive question behavior setting, quizzes scaffold learning and allow students to check their understanding of the data collection and interim steps before submitting their final lab assignment.
  • Considerations for settings (adaptive mode, review settings, feedback)
