Though some individuals may consider testing an infrequent, high-stake activity and only provide written midterm and final exams to their students, others may choose to proctor more frequent, low-risk quizzes throughout the semester. Moodle quizzes provide a quick, flexible way for faculty to gauge student comprehension and to diagnose student performance more frequently throughout their courses.
Faculty can also utilize Moodle quizzes to check students’ understanding of homework before class begins. For example, professors can ask students to complete a simple, low-stress quiz on Moodle before class starts or at the beginning of class. The instructor can then review the results and tailor that day’s activities and discussion to address students’ strengths and weaknesses.
