Quizzes & Exams

The Quiz activity allows the student to take quizzes, tests and exams (i.e. assessments) consisting of a large variety of question types, including multiple choice, true-false, and short answer questions.  Most will have special conditions, requirements and expectations such as single or multiple attempts, time restrictions, availability restrictions, questions delivered at one time or all at once.

Therefore it is imperative that you carefully read, understand and follow the instructor's directions before attempting the assessment activity.  

Prior to Starting the Quiz:

  • Review the test instructions. If the instructions are unclear, contact your instructor for clarification.
  • Ensure you are using a Moodle supported browser (see Browser Settings under Technical Requirements).
  • If the assessment is only available during a specific period, do not wait until the last minute to begin it.
