Create quick quizzes in Moodle with Word
Moodle quizzes can save you time. They grade themselves automatically and are available for students to complete outside of class time. Moodle quizzes can also be a helpful tool if you’re interested in flipped instruction or just-in-time teaching. Despite these benefits, quizzes are an underused feature in Moodle because they look intimidating and can be time-consuming to create. But if you have quiz questions in Microsoft Word format, you can easily turn those questions into a simple Moodle quiz. If you’ve never created a Moodle quiz, this can be an easy entry into online assessment. Read on to learn more about Moodle quizzes and how you can use your pre-existing questions to quickly create them.
