Moodle2Word is a plugin that allows quiz questions to be exported from Moodle into a Word file. The Word file can then be used to quickly review large numbers of questions (either online or in print), or to prepare paper tests (where the answers and feedback is hidden).
Moodle2Word also supports importing questions from structured tables in Word, directly into the Moodle question database. The tables support all the question components (stem, answer options, option-specific and general feedback, and weights), as well as embedded images and equations. All the main question types are supported.
The Cloze question syntax is particularly useful, as it does not require any knowledge of the arcane Moodle syntax; instead, use bold for drop-down menu items, and italic for fill-in text fields. See attached screenshot for an example.
Word templates to go with the plugin can be downloaded from the demonstration website www.Moodle2Word.net, and are available for Word 2002/XP, 2003, 2007 and 2010 (Windows), and Word 2004 (MacOSX). The Windows templates also support a simple question preview facility, as well as uploading questions from within Word.

A revised version of the PHP code is now available for Moodle 2.1, although some facilities are not yet supported (importing and previewing from within Word). Import and Export using the Moodle web interface should work fine though.

I have a version for Moodle 2.0 as well, but it isn't publicly available, as I don't want to support it. Contact me if you want it, though.
