This one comes from the forums on Moodle.org, the Moodler asked: “I have 50 questions in a category, but I want each student to only answer 10 random questions in the quiz I’ve created, is that possible?”
Mister Moodle says, “It is!”
Here’s a quick screencast created to illustrate the possibility of generating quizzes randomly by having it pull from a large question pool. There are some great benefits
- each student getting a test/exam unique to their user account,
- the ability to let students retake exams that are entirely new/different and
- an additional level of accountability.
Check out the quick screencast below created using Screenr.
