Daniel, Leal and Luckas

I've blogged on your excellent quiz making Word Template version 21 here. Hope more users get to use their tool in their institutions.

Thank you very much for this piece of, no, masterpiece of software.

Thank you Frankie for your post and blog. Also, thank you to everyone who have made a push for making Moodle better through your tools. I found moodle_quiz_v2_1 very useful. I have been scratching my head trying to get moodle_quiz_v09 to work with Office 2010. I am currently using Windows 7 x64 with Office 2010 x86/32 bit.

I found adding a new location within Trusted Locations of Microsoft Word made the quiz making process a little easier. I hope that doesn't pose too big of a security issue for my PC.

  1. File > Options > Trust Center > Trust Center Settings > Trusted Locations > Add new location
  2. Browse to the folder location where you extracted or moved the folder moodle_quiz_v2_1
  3. Select the folder and click OK
  4. Check the box "Subfolders of this location are also trusted
  5. Click OK > OK > OK

**Word 2010 and Template for creating quiz questions - Moodle XML files for importing/import into Moodle Course - Question bank questions**

It seems that CopyPasteEditThisoneforWord2010.docx or the Example.docx (from Frank) is to be used as an initial template file to get started then choose File > Save as to save a separate file with a more meaningful name (for later use or archival). It also seems that this new .docx file you create should be saved into the moodle_quiz_v2_1 folder.  Once you save the separate file you can export the quiz into Moodle XML format.
I tell you... it is sweet! to be able to import Moodle XML files into Moodle.

I have been really playing with this 2.1 version of the Word Quiz Template and really like it. I have made some videos for our instructors and want to share what I have learned about using this template.  This is Word 2010 on a PC in the videos. The Moodle is 2.3.  I did create and example2 file for these videos that acts as a template. It is the example file that came with the zipped folder with the questions taken out.

I did have problems with the pictures at one time, but I re-extracted the zip file and used the example file out of it and it worked fine after that.

Some of the forums on the older verison of this template mention that the Mac version of Word cannot make the xml file.  Does anyone know if that has changed any?

These are automatically embedding with just the link copied in.  That's interesting.

Paula cool

Sorry, Chris, I just saw this. I don't have access to Office 2013, perhaps someone else out there knows.

Hi Chris,

I'm late to the party, too. I can tell you that the macros do not work in Office 2013 because of changes to the XML libraries. The Toolbar also won't appear, or if it does, the buttons don't work because the macros behind them have not been enabled (perhaps due to security settings).

However, I was able to make some changes for the code to work minimally. But there are a lot of problems with the Toolbar I wasn't able to fix. I don't understand yet how this works in Word 2013 (under Windows 8.1).

I created a repository on Google Code to share the VBA module called XML.bas (export of the macros from the file). The inital code has the MIT license, so I think it should be OK to do this. For now, I uploaded only the XML_2010.bas file that supports question feedback. I will see how much time I can dedicate to fixing the 2013 file.

Anyone who's interested in collaborating can join the project. I'm hoping this will continue with more collaboration focused in the Google Code repository.

Cheers,

Cris Fuhrman

And it gets more interesting! Emily Twitchett has released a "cleaner" version of the tool publicly (support for Office 2010/2013). Try it at https://code.google.com/p/word-moodle-quiz/ See here: view Emily Twitchett's post » "where we're going, we won't need roads".

Hi Frankie, I think you confused my comment to her original question Google+... The publicly cleaner version is the same one I mentioned here, but there's no such thing as bad press smile

It a recursive publicity stunt! Oh alright, yes, I was confused.

Hey Guys!

How is the update of the template going? I think we are moving to Office 2013 soon and was wondering if anyone had fixed the template so that it works?

Thanks!

Lael

Hi there. I presume you mean to add Emily's cleaner version to the docs? I will happily save you the time and do that tomorrow. The way docs work is this: every Moodle version has its own documentation. and unless it is vitally essential we only update the documentation of the current and previous version - so at the moment, that would be Moodle 2.6 and Moodle 2.5. (Next week we'll be updating Moodle 2.7 and Moodle 2.6) Everyone is free to add to the docs and of course to add to earlier versions if they wish.

Re: moodle quiz template (updated)
 

Hi there - I just updated the import page in 2.6 and 2.5. I noticed that logins don't persist across those URLs, even if I check "remember me" (I had to login once each time, for each documentation tree). I'm guessing they are separate sites (with separate sessions) even though the URLs look like they're not. My docs.moodle.org password is something really twisted, so I count on my browser to remember it. But Chrome forgot everything after I logged in twice, even though it said it was remembering the password.

Re: moodle quiz template (updated)
 

I am a relatively inexperienced site administrator for a small college which has recently upgraded our Moodle site from v1.9 to v2.5. The vast majority of our faculty need a very user friendly method of creating quizzes. We are using Word 2010. I am attempting to duplicate results using the v2.1 Word to Moodle template, and have experienced many of the issues/errors documented in the blog. I found your videos explaining how to integrate the downloaded template and its macros into Word on my computer.

Your video, "Enable Macros Quiz Template v2.1 for Importing Moodle Questions", shows the folder that is available once the zip folder is extracted. The file list includes a file "example2" which you use in your explanation. I have searched every forum post I can find but have not been able to find a link ANYWHERE that links to a zip file that contains that file; they only have the "example" file. Can you please give me a heads-up as to where I can download that updated zip file?

Thank you so much for any help you can offer me.

Any advice on the following would be very welcome:

Essay questions can accept Feedback on template page and this  is accepted as OK when  checking layout prior to XML export- however, unlike multiple choice or short answer questions, the essay  feedback is not imported into Moodle - is this rectifiable?

Thank you for reading this.
