Moodle is a web-based learning platform that allows students to interact with the course material online. It offers a number of tools for teachers to administer quizzes and tests. It also provides a centralized place for students to view their grades and progress in the course.
Mock Exams & Quizzes
One of the most important things to know about taking an exam or quiz in Moodle is that you need to prepare ahead of time. This can help you avoid any technical problems that may arise during the test. It will also help you focus on answering questions instead of getting distracted by technical issues.
Before you can take a quiz or exam, you will need to create an account in Moodle and register for the course you’re taking. This is easy to do and you can do it from the Moodle home page.
You will need to choose an account type. The default option is an “unlimited” account that can be used by anyone in the Moodle community, including non-students (such as your spouse or partner). However, you can choose a different type of account that limits the amount of time students can use to access your course.
Once you have chosen an account type, you will need to select a username and password. These credentials will allow you to access the Moodle test server to test your quiz and grade submissions.
The Moodle test server is available to UL Lafayette faculty and staff from 13:00 UTC on Monday through Friday and will be updated daily with the latest bug fixes. You can log in using one of the following test accounts:
User Overrides – Attempts allowed
Some Moodle quizzes will have specific open and close times. These time frames are based on the instructor’s syllabi and reflect UL Lafayette’s local time zone. This means that a quiz that opens at 7 p.m. CST will begin to close at 11 p.m. if you start the quiz 15 minutes before the closing time.
Moodle will save your responses to the open page once a minute so you can revisit them if you lose connectivity. This is especially useful if you’ve been unable to answer the first question because of an Internet outage or other interruption.
If you’re attempting to answer a quiz and you lose connection, it’s important to note down your previous answers before clicking the Next button on a new page. When you reconnect, Moodle will automatically save your responses and your new answers will appear on the next page of the quiz.
Quiz navigation – Autosave
When you’re completing a quiz, you can navigate through the pages in the quiz by clicking on the “Next” and “Back” buttons that appear in the upper right corner of each page. Moodle also allows you to go back in time and click on individual questions in the quiz.
You can also click on the “Quiz Summary” tab to see a summary of your current answers. The quiz summary will show you how many points you have left to score and your previous scores as well.
