I know the Hot Potatoes software would meet this need but we are not a non-profit organization and are only very small at the moment. Is there an alternative that anyone knows of that I can use with this module or another module, to provide ungraded quizzes to test student knowledge?
if you don't want to record the results of a Hot Potatoes quiz, or any other kind of quiz, you could add it to the Moodle course as a "resource", instead of a HotPot activity. Moodle would then treat it as just another webpage and the "results" of the quiz, if there were any, would never leave the student's browser.
I'm afraid I can't suggest any alternatives to Hot Potatoes, because I haven't come across anything which is even half as good. I think it is far and away the best piece of software in its field. I think the same about Moodle too - of course
all the best
The lesson module has practice lessons which do not appear in the gradebook. It also has multiple choice and true/false capabilities.
You can also set the quiz grade to 1 point (maybe less?) and allow students to retake the quiz which would have very little impact on their overall grades.
There is also a Microsoft word template available to help you make quizzes easily. It's available here, and a help manual for the template is available here.
Thank you very much for the Microsoft links!
I'm trying to make a quiz with the Word template: I get a Visual Basic error an I see in my word document the next line
// Start of question: TrueStatement
Do you recognize this error/line?
I'm using word 2003, it seems didn't work!
For ungraded quizzes and similar interactivities, check out StudyMate by Respondus (http://www.respondus.com/products/studymate.shtml). It generates about 10 different Flash-based assessment-type learning activities including a SCORM-compliant quiz. While the initial cost is $79 USD, it does come with a full 30-day trial to see if it will meet your needs. I haven't tested the SCORM-compliant quiz, but all the other activities work without problem in Moodle when you save the activities as "HTML+SWF".
Hope this helps...
Which activity do I put a Studymate Quiz into?
I tried to include a webpage from Eclipse Crossword in moodle but it didn´t work. I choosed "compose a web page", copied the source-code in the editor (in html-modus) but at the end, I don´t get much of the page.
I also tried the option "link to a file, but then I get only the page but without the moodle-environment.
How am I supposed to proceed?
you can make stand alone random quizes and activities
Subscription is required but it is minimal
