I am Olli Savolainen and I am working on the Quiz user interface this Summer. I have been studying the usability aspects during this spring already, and what we have learned so far about the users is here: Quiz UI redesign scenarios index
It is a set of six fictional characters (personas) who are described doing different tasks (scenarios) with exams.
Now you can help. It does not matter if you have not used Moodle Quiz or other electronic exams before. Please reply to this message, telling us how, and for what purpose, YOU are creating exams - electronic or not. Instructions below.
(The video contains roughly the same information as what is below.)
The way you can help is as follows:
- In the personas page, find a persona that matches your way of making exams (electronic or not).
- Read about how that persona is doing exams on the two other pages about making exams: Quiz UI redesign scenarios index
- Scan for differences between your way of working with exams, and the way your persona does it
- Tell us, in this thread, about what you found: How do you do it?
The goal is to get a new user interface (UI) in Moodle 2.0. Please also post this message whereever you think we could find teachers interested in exams, who might like to help. (However, please do bear the netiquette in mind.) Thanks.
(I would crosspost this to the following forums, too, since the users of the current quiz probably are best represented in the existing UI already - the most important is to hear the users who, for a reason or another, are not using quiz yet. I will wait if the video above to get properly embedded, though.
