Students like quizzes to prepare for exams. However, it’s hard to create all the questions needed for assessments and exams. That’s where the Moodle plugin StudentQuiz comes in. StudentQuiz enables students to collaboratively create their own question pools within Moodle. This allows a better learning experience because knowledge is actively constructed by the learner, not just passively received from the environment. And even if an individual student contributes a few questions only, a larger cohort can easily build up an extensive question pool.
In StudentQuiz, learners can create individualised quizzes. They also add their feedback to each questions by rating and commenting while working through the quizzes. Students can see their personal learning progress, and they can compare their contribution and competence with their peer group. Furthermore, the created questions become part of the Moodle question bank and can be reused in standard Moodle quizzes.
The teacher can approve/disapprove questions, or hide or delete questions. The teacher can also configure:
- whether students’ names are displayed or kept anonymous.
- whether questions are published right away or have to be approved first.
- the number of points assigned to questions contributed and answers given.
- what user roles to exclude from participation.
- what questions types are allowed to be added to the pool.
- whether students are enforced to rate questions.
- whether students are enforced to comment questions.
