StudentQuiz enables students to collaboratively create their own question pools within Moodle. Students can filter these questions into quizzes, and they can rate and comment on questions while working through the quizzes. StudentQuiz computes each students contribution and learning progress and compares this with the community. The created questions become part of the Moodle question bank and can be reused in other Moodle quizzes.

Students like questions to help them prepare for exams. However, it’s hard to provide enough questions for many self-assessments and exams. That’s one reason why the University of Applied Sciences Rapperswil developed the Moodle plugin StudentQuiz. StudentQuiz enables students to collaboratively create their own question pools within Moodle. Even if an individual student contributes a few questions only, a large cohort could easily build up an extensive question pool.

In StudentQuiz, students can filter questions into quizzes, and they can rate and comment on questions while working through the quizzes. StudentQuiz collects usage data for each question and ranks students based on their contribution and performance within the quizzes. A personal learning assistance feature displays the individual progress and compares it with the community average. The created questions become part of the Moodle question bank and can be reused in other Moodle quizzes.

A teacher can configure:

  • whether students’ names are displayed or kept anonymous.
  • what questions types are allowed to be added to the pool.
  • the number of points assigned to questions contributed and answers given. 

There are more benefits of using StudentQuiz. Find out in our 15 minutes introduction video.


Installation

The simplest way to install the StudentQuiz is by going to the Site administration -> Plugins -> Install plugins page.

You can try StudentQuiz without installing on the StudentQuiz Demo Page.

    I presented this plugin at MootIEUK17 and so I have spent quite a bit of time with it. It is now working fine with PostGresql and I have also briefly run it with IIS/SQL server. I have used it extensively with development versions of Moodle 3.3.
    With debug set to developer I don't get any setType errors thrown.
    export.php now has the login check.

    Codechecker returns only on one minor issue which I would think can be addressed in a future release. The question behavior code returns no issues from codechecker.
    I think this is probably ready for release to the plugins database. It offers some very useful functionality.

    Hi dnyaneshwar, I didn't develop this plugin, I am just a fan. However I had the same thought about mobile support. Question Editing is not supported in the Mobile app so far as I know so I cannot see how it could be fully adapted for mobile.

    It's not ready yet. However, it is planned that you will be able to run a quiz on Moodle Mobile. The creation of questions has to be done within a browser.

    Hi John

    We've released v2.1.0 exactly for this reason, are you sure you use the recent version? You can find information about this in the release notes: https://github.com/frankkoch/moodle-mod_studentquiz/releases/tag/v2.1.0 and in this issue: https://github.com/frankkoch/moodle-mod_studentquiz/issues/22

    So if you're already on newest version, please report us there an issue so we can work on a fix in it's own thread.

    Hi Frank:

    This looks like an amazing activity! Thank you for sharing! We have a teacher who is excited to use this plugin, and after installing it we tried to create a question with a test student account on a Moodle 3.2 instance.

    After clicking "Create new question" and setting up a multiplechoice question and clicking "Save", we are sent back to the original screen with the message: "There are no questions in this StudentQuiz. Feel free to add some questions."

    We tried again but it looks like something is off--I looked at seeing if overriding a student permission setting might help, but nothing seemed to work.

    Then I went in with a teacher account, and then finally with the Moodle admin account and still no question is getting saved. Any ideas on what is missing?

    Thanks for all your help!

    Hi Joseph, thank you for the friendly feedback. Are you using MariaDB? StudentQuiz was developed for MySQL and PostgreSQL. However, we're currently working to ship it for MariaDB as well. Sp please stay tuned for the next upgrade.

    @Frank Koch
    Hi Frank, I was wondering if you could take a look at a request for help on the themes forum https://moodle.org/mod/forum/discuss.php?d=364452
    where a Moodler 'Ollie' is wanting to override a renderer from mod_studentquiz. I do not have a clue and there is no where to move the post so you are my last hope that a solution can be found for Ollie!
