To create a quiz activity, use the following steps:
When you first create your quiz, you will set some options that apply to the entire quiz. (This is what the video in the top section of this page refers to as the quiz's "front page".) This step includes setting the quiz title, instructions for students, grading and timing settings.
A Moodle user tour will walk you through these options when you go to create your first quiz. If you want to see the user tour again, click the "reset user tour for this page" link at the very bottom of the Moodle page.
Remember to click "Save and Display" when you're finished with your initial quiz settings.
The next step is to create questions within your quiz.
If you want to, change the maximum grade for your quiz that appears in the upper right of the quiz editing page.
For more information, see the Quick Quiz Guide on Moodle.org.
Some quiz questions (like multiple choice or fill-in-the blank questions) have their answers and their associated point values entered at the very start, so Moodle can grade student responses automatically. Other types of quiz questions (like the Essay question) will be graded manually by you after students have submitted their answers. See the Grading Quizzes page for details on how to do this grading.
