Usage

Teachers want to conduct the final examination of a course with several hundred students in a lecture hall. For this purpose, an offline quiz is created in a Moodle course and the quiz is filled with questions from the question bank. To make copying more difficult, the lecturers decide to create several groups in the offline quiz that contain different questions. The forms are then generated, downloaded and printed out.

Two forms are handed out to students during the exam: the questionnaire (contains the questions and answer options) and the corresponding answer sheet (form with boxes to tick the selected answers). After the exam, all answer sheets are scanned and uploaded in the offline quiz of the Moodle course for evaluation.
Forms that could not be automatically evaluated by the system, e.g. because the ID number was incorrectly ticked or ticks or crossed out ticks are unclear, must be corrected by the teachers in the offline quiz.
Teachers can now allow students to view their exams online, where they can, for example, see the points they have achieved and check that their ticks have been recognized.

Note: The question types multiple choice, description and all-or-nothing multiple choice are currently supported. Questionnaires can be downloaded in PDF, DOCX or LaTeX format.

Documentation

You can find a documentation for the plugin on the AMC website.

Bug Reports / Support

We try our best to deliver bug-free plugins, but we can not test the plugin for every platform, database, PHP and Moodle version. If you find any bug please report it on GitHub. Please provide a detailed bug description, including the plugin and Moodle version and, if applicable, a screenshot.

You may also file a request for enhancement on GitHub. If we consider the request generally useful and if it can be implemented with reasonable effort we might implement it in a future version.

You may also post general questions on the plugin on GitHub, but note that we do not have the resources to provide detailed support.

    Thank you in advance for your reply.

    We found a not so easy to fix bug in the version for Moodle 4.2 which had to be fixed first. Expect a version of the Offline Quiz for Moodle 4.2 pretty soon. It will take some time until the version for Moodle 4.3 will be ready, but work on it is already on the way.

    Hi!
    It's an incredible bonus!
    One question: where is the review process carried out? On my Moodle server?
    Is it a waiting time, does it depend on what?
    For example, I did a test with only 4 exams, PNG format in a single .zip. but 15 minutes have passed and I don't receive the email.
    Thank you very much for the help!

    Hey Luca,
    thank you for the interest in our plugin.
    Yes, for privacy reasons the evaluation is completely done on your Moodle Server.
    It's done via a cron job. So you need to configure cron: https://docs.moodle.org/en/Cron
    If it still doesn't work, open a ticket on github, please.
