|00:01||Welcome to the Spoken Tutorial on Question bank in Moodle.|
|00:06||In this tutorial, we will learn about: Question bank in Moodle|
|00:12||Categories of questions and How to add questions to the question bank.|
|00:19||This tutorial is recorded using: Ubuntu Linux OS 16.04|
|00:26||Apache, MariaDB and PHP obtained through XAMPP 5.6.30|
|00:34|| Moodle 3.3 And Firefox web browser
You may use any web browser of your choice.
|00:44||However, Internet Explorer should be avoided, as it causes some display inconsistencies.|
|00:52|| This tutorial assumes that your site administrator has registered you as a teacher
And assigned at least one course to you.
|01:03||It also assumes that You have uploaded some course material for your course.|
|01:09||If not, please refer to the relevant Moodle tutorials on this website.|
|01:16||Switch to the browser and login to your Moodle site as a teacher.|
|01:24|| I have provided a text file with all the text that is used in this tutorial, in the Code files link.
Please download the file named “Mytextfile.txt” and open it on your machine.
|01:40||Click on the Calculus course in the left navigation menu.|
|01:45||We will begin by learning about Question banks.|
|01:49||A Question bank is a collection of questions, mostly organized by topics|
|01:55||Questions in the Question bank can be reused in multiple quizzes.|
|02:01||This helps to create different quizzes for each academic year or for different batches.|
|02:09||Switch back to the browser.|
|02:11||Click on the gear icon at the top right and then click on the More… link at the end.|
|02:18||We are brought to the Course Administration page.|
|02:22||Scroll down and locate the section named Question bank.|
|02:27||Click on the Categories link in this section.|
|02:30||Look at the Add category section.|
|02:34||Click on the Parent category dropdown.|
|02:37||Here Top is the top level category for this course.|
|02:42||Select Default for Calculus, if it is not already selected by default.|
|02:49||In the Name field, type Basic Calculus.|
|02:54|| Then click on Add Category button at the bottom of the page.
Likewise, we can add more categories.
|03:04||Create a hierarchy of categories for the Calculus course, like I have done here.|
|03:11||Go to the questions creation page by clicking on the Questions tab.|
|03:17||Click on Create a new question button at the bottom.|
|03:22||A pop-up window opens.|
|03:25||Select the type of question that you wish to add.|
|03:29||Detailed description about the question type is seen on the right side.|
|03:35||I will select Multiple choice.|
|03:39||Click on Add button at the bottom of the pop-up.|
|03:43|| Now, select the category for which you want to add the question.
I will choose Evolutes.
|03:51||In the Question name field, type MCQ with single correct answer.|
|03:57|| Type the following question in the Question text area.
You can copy-paste the text from the Mytextfile.txt file.
|04:07||The Default Mark is set to 1 and I will let it be as 1.|
|04:12||Next option is General feedback. The text here is shown to the student after he/she has submitted the quiz.|
|04:23|| This can be used to show the detailed solution of the question, also.
Type or copy-paste the text as I have done here.
|04:34||Now, click on the One or multiple answers dropdown.|
|04:39|| Here we see 2 options- Multiple answers allowed
One answer only
|04:46||I’ll show you how both options work.|
|04:49||Let me first choose One answer only.|
|04:53|| The Shuffle the choices checkbox is checked, by default.
This ensures that the answer choices within the question, are shuffled for each quiz attempt.
|05:06||Scroll down to see the Answers section.|
|05:10||Notice that every option here is associated with a grade and feedback.|
|05:17||Type Choice 1 as shown here.|
|05:20||Now for this question, Choice 1 is the correct answer.|
|05:25||Therefore I will select 100% in the Grade.|
|05:30||In the Grade dropdown, we can also allot partial marks or negative marks to every choice.|
|05:38||You can explore these later when you are more proficient with Moodle.|
|05:43|| Feedback for students who choose this answer, can be written in the Feedback text area.
I will type “Correct”.
|05:53||Fill the rest of the choices and grades, as I have done here.|
|06:01||Now scroll down and click on Multiple Tries section to expand it.|
|06:08||Notice here - the Penalty for each incorrect try field is set by default, to 33.33%|
|06:18||This means a student will be penalised for every wrong answer.|
|06:24||You can leave it as it is or change it to any of the other percentage options shown here.|
|06:31||I will select 0%, as I don’t wish to penalise my students for wrong answers.|
|06:39||Then scroll down and click on Save changes button at the bottom of the page.|
|06:46||We can see that our question has been added to the Question Bank.|
|06:51||Notice that there are 4 icons next to the question title of the question.|
|06:57||These are to edit, duplicate, preview and delete the question.|
|07:06||Click on Preview icon to see how the question will appear in the quiz.|
|07:13||The selected question and its options opens in a pop-up window.|
|07:19|| Click on Fill in correct responses button.
This helps you to verify the questions, the choices and the correct answer.
|07:29||Click on Submit and finish button.|
|07:32||This will show the feedback that the student will see, after answering the question.|
|07:38||Whenever you add a new question, always preview it to cross check.|
|07:44||Click on Close preview button to close this pop-up window.|
|07:49||Let us now create an MCQ which has more than one correct answer.|
|07:54|| Following the previous steps, I have created another MCQ.
Please do so likewise.
|08:01||In One or multiple answers dropdown, this time I will select Multiple answers allowed.|
|08:10|| Enter the choices 1 and 2 and their respective grades as shown.
Here I have selected 50% grade for both.
|08:20||A student who marks only 1 correct answer gets 0.5 marks.|
|08:26||And the student who marks both correct answers gets 1 mark.|
|08:32||Enter the choices 3 and 4 and their respective grades as shown.|
|08:38||And I will keep Penalty for each incorrect try field as 0%.|
|08:44||Then scroll down and click on Save changes button.|
|08:49||Next, let’s add a Short answer question.|
|08:53||The student will be expected to type in a word or phrase, in response to the question.|
|09:00||Click on Create a new question button and double-click on Short answer option.|
|09:08||Create the question as shown.|
|09:11||In Case sensitivity dropdown, select No, case is unimportant.|
|09:18||The correct answer to this question is “same logarithmic spiral”|
|09:24|| I am willing to give full marks to a student if whose answer is either:
“same spiral” or “same logarithmic spiral”
|09:35||However, if the student writes “logarithmic spiral” as the answer, I will give half mark.|
|09:43||Scroll down to the answers section.|
|09:46||Fill in Answer 1 and 2 and their respective grades as shown.|
|09:52|| Notice the asterix in Answer 1 text.
Asterix can be used as a wildcard to match any character.
|10:02|| So for eg: A student writes The evolute of a logarithmic spiral is the same logarithmic spiral.
This answer will be awarded full marks.
|10:15||Fill in Answer 3 and its respective grade as shown.|
|10:20||Notice there is no asterix before the answer text.|
|10:24|| So for example: A student writes The evolute of a logarithmic spiral is not the same logarithmic spiral.
This answer will be not be awarded any marks.
|10:37||Fill in Answer 4 and its respective grade as shown.|
|10:43||Notice that I have awarded only 50% marks to this answer.|
|10:48||In the feedback textarea, type “You need to specify that it’s the same spiral and not any spiral.”|
|10:57||This explanation will be shown to the student as feedback.|
|11:02||Once again, I will keep Penalty for each incorrect try field as 0%.|
|11:09||Then scroll down and click on Save changes button.|
|11:14||Let us now add a Numerical question.|
|11:18||Click on Create a new question button and double click on Numerical option.|
|11:26||Create the question as shown.|
|11:29|| The answer to this question is 5mm.
However, I am okay with the student answering anywhere between 4.5mm and 5.5mm.
|11:41||The error margin here is 0.5.|
|11:45||Scroll down to the Answers section.|
|11:48||Enter the Answers, Error and grades as shown.|
|11:53|| Expand the Unit handling section.
There are 3 options in the Unit handling dropdown.
|12:00||I will select the option - The unit must be given, and will be graded.|
|12:07|| The Unit penalty field, by default, shows 0.1
I will make it 0.5.
|12:16||So the student will get half of the marks if they write the answer without mentioning the unit.|
|12:23||In the Units are input using dropdown, I will select the text input element option.|
|12:31||This means the student has to type the unit along with the answer.|
|12:37||Expand the Units section.|
|12:40||Write Unit as mm and multiplier is 1. This means the answer choices are in mm.|
|12:50||Once again, I will keep Penalty for each incorrect try field as 0%.|
|12:57||And then scroll down and click on Save changes button.|
|13:02|| With this, we come to the end of this tutorial.
