Question types

Kurzinformation

The Quiz activity allows managers to create electronic self-tests using a large variety of question types such as multiple choice, true/false or short answer. The quizzes can can be used to assess the knowledge of the students. The questions are saved in a question bank and are available throughout the whole course room. Quizzes can be configured in a way that students can have multiple attempts. Every attempt will be graded automatically and managers can decide if students will get automatic feedback for their answers and/or if the will be shown the correct answer.


 Detailinformation

The following question types are available by default:

  • Multiple-Choice: The Multiple Choice question type allows you to create single-answer and multiple-answer questions, include images, sound, or other media in the question and/or answer options (by inserting HTML), and weight individual answers.
     
  • True/False: In response to a question (which may include a picture), students choose from two options: True or False.
     
  • Assignment - A list of sub-questions is provided along with a list of answers. Students must "match" each question with the correct answer.
     
  • Short answer - In response to a question (which may include a picture), students enter a word or phrase. There may be several possible correct answers with different scores. The answers can be sensitive or insensitive to upper/lower case.
     
  • Numeric - In response to a question (which may include a picture), students enter a word or phrase. There may be several possible correct answers with different scores. The answers can be sensitive or insensitive to upper/lower case.
     
  • All-or-nothing multiple choice - If the question is solved completely correctly, i.e. all correct answer options are checked, the full score is awarded. If not all correct answer options or even wrong ones are checked, 0 points are awarded. Thus, either the full number of points or 0 points will be awarded. If the question is solved completely correctly, i.e. if all correct answer options are checked, the full number of points is awarded. If not all correct answer options or even wrong ones are checked, 0 points are awarded. Thus, either the full score or 0 points are always awarded.
     
  • Arrangement - In this type, the answers are arranged randomly and the participants have to arrange the terms or word groups correctly. To do this, participants simply drag and drop the field to the appropriate location.
     
  • Calculated - Calculated questions offer the possibility to create individual numerical questions by using placeholders, which will be replaced by single values when the quiz is performed.
     
  • Calculated multiple choice - Calculated multiple-choice questions are like multiple-choice questions, with the additional property that the items to be chosen can include formula results from numerical values randomly selected from a set when the quiz is taken. They use the same wildcards as calculated questions, and their wildcards can be shared with other calculated multiple-choice or regular questions of the Calculated question type. The main difference is that the formula is included in the answer choice as {=...}, i.e. {={l}*{w}} for calculating the surface area of a rectangle.
     
  • Drag and drop on image - Students make their selections by dragging text, images, or both into predefined boxes on a background image. Elements can be grouped together.
     
  • Drag and drop on text - Students select missing words or phrases and add them to the text by dragging boxes to the correct places. Items can be grouped and used more than once.
     
  • Drag and drop markers - Students place markers on a selected area on a background image. Unlike the Drag and Drop on Image question type, there are no predefined areas on the underlying image that are visible to the student.
     
  • Drag-and-drop mapping - In this extension of the assignment question, answers can be assigned by drag-and-drop.
     
  • Simply calculated - Simply calculated questions provide the ability to create custom numeric questions whose answers are results of numeric formulas that contain variable numeric values through the use of wildcards (e.g. {x}, {y}) and are replaced with random values when the quiz is taken. Simple calculated questions provide the most commonly used features of calculated questions with a much simpler user interface.
     
  • Expanded cloze - A question type that deals with fill in the blanks. Allows "drag&drop" and "drop down" answer choices with the insertion of incorrect answer choices which serve as a distraction while answering the question. A very easy to learn syntax for creating the question.
     
  • Short answer of regular expression type - Similar to the short answer question type, the short answer regular expression question type requires students to answer an open-ended question with one word or a short phrase. Nevertheless, the RegExp system provides a powerful tool for analyzing student responses with the goal of providing direct feedback.
     
  • Cloze - These very flexible questions consist of a text (in Moodle format) embedded with various answers, including multiple choice, short answer, and numerical.
     
  • Cloze text selection - Students select missing words or missing phrases from a drop-down menu. Items can be grouped and used more than once.
     
  • Question type STACK - a question type specifically for mathematical tasks that uses a computer algebra system to automatically evaluate answers. Also allows students to enter answers as a term, variable, equation, matrix or quantity.
     
  • Mark words - All words can be marked by clicking on them. Solution words are bracketed by delimiters, e.g. The cat [meows].
     
  • MTF (Multiple True False) question type: For each answer option offered, a decision must be made whether it is true/applicable or false/not applicable. Scoring can be done in "all or nothing" mode (referred to as "MTF 1/0") or in "partial points" mode as staggered scoring. A fixed number of points is awarded for each applicable selection. A selection that is not made is automatically evaluated as an incorrect selection and accordingly receives no points. A disproportionately increasing number of points per correct selection is not possible.
 

Note

The MTF question type should be used for preliminary examinations, as it enables MC tasks that are flawless in terms of examination law.
