      Description

      I feel that the current text is longer than necessary, so people won't read it. My attempt to do better is below. This actually fits in the activity chooser at the default size. Is this an improvement? Can anyone do even better?

      Quizzes are automatically graded activities built from variety of question types, including multiple choice, matching, short-answer and numerical. There is a choice for how students complete the quiz, including

      • Deferred feedback - a classic exam where students record answers for all the questions which are graded at the end, or
      • Interactive - students submit questions as they go along and get feedback. If they are wrong, they can immediately try again for less marks.

      There are many options for controlling when students can attempt the quiz, how much time they are allowed, and so on. The teacher can also control when and if students can see the feedback, correct answers, numerical marks, etc.

      Quizzes may be used

      • As formal parts of the course assessment
      • As mini tests for reading assignments or at the end of a topic
      • As exam practice using questions from previous years' exams
      • To provide feedback about performance
      • For self-assessment
