Hi Usman, I am not clear if you mean you want to develop a new question type in the sense of being a programmer who writes PHP/Javascript code or if you mean you are looking for ideas as a teacher how you can best teach these things.

For example I am a developer and have developed a couple of question types one of which allows a teacher to create a passage of text and the student has to click on the correct words.


Are you wanting to develop new questions using existing Moodle question types?

Hi 


We want our students create their assignments within moodle quiz exam, like we want students take 30 minute to write a business letter and teacher will mark its later, and similar we want student make chart of accounts (accounting) in excel, teacher will evaluate the answer later.

Just want to add word, excel and powerpoint capabilities in answer section and teacher will check it later and mark accordingly.

i am attaching some sample for your reference. 

Regards 

Usman Kazi

Why can you  not simply use Moodle's assignment feature and the student uploads their Word/Excel file? Then the teacher can download it, check it and then grade the student?

You could even use MS Office online (I forget the actual name) but students can share their files with their teacher so the teacher can edit their file directly- like Google docs collaborative editing. And the student can add a link in an assignment.

because we want to asses their skills within time frame because quiz having

limited time to answer, but assignment is something different.

Hi Usman,

There is one question type that is spreadsheet based, https://moodle.org/plugins/qtype_type_calc_sheet, but I don't know if it will help you the way you want.

You do know that you can set Availability times such that you can have a time to open and time to close for the Assignment? Using that, you could have your students do as Mary suggested and create their work in Word/Excel/Power point, and then upload it.

There are a few Atto and TinyMCE editor formatting tools available when using an Essay type question, so it could be used for doing a "Business Letter" in a quiz.

Hi Rachels



Thank you for your response.



Yes we did examine all these types but we want our student use single

window during quiz / exam, if we can bring google docs, sheets, slides that

will be great.

Okay, I understand. I cannot help any with Google docs as I do not use them at all.
