Moodle Quiz Template Version 21

Hi

I'm using this Ms Word quiz template --save to--> XML file. It works and saves me time when creating quiz questions.

Anyone else using a template similar to this? What's the best practice when it comes to creating quiz questions for Moodle? Just use Notepad and create GIFT format questions? Or use Excel templates?

Please share your tool and experience.

Thanks,
Frankie Kam

Your forgot the most obvious choice: use the Moodle Question bank's editing interface.wink

Hi Joseph

Thanks. I just got started with Moodle 2.4 for one of my courses. I'm finding the Quiz module better in terms of usability compared to Moodle 1.9.x.

Hi, everyone!

I've got a little problem with moodle_quiz_v21. I have a lot of questions that have several lines of text for question name, title and answers. This module only understands questions that have only one line of text. Can anyone help me to modify this module to export questions with several lines of text. 

Another problem is that this module creates simple text, but not html. Sometimes it is very important to have question text with some html tags, like <strong>, <i> etc....

I think it would be quite difficult to extend this Word template to support your requirements, because paragraph styles are used to delimit the various components of each question. I developed an alternative template that uses table cells instead, thus allowing more complex structures inside each component. cf. https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=252288 for an example.
