Workshop title Moodle v2: Using the Quiz Activity to Assess Students 
Workshop description

The quiz activity in a Moodle course allows the teacher a great deal of flexibility in assessing student performance and understanding. Teachers can use this activity for both summative and formative evaluation. With a variety of question types available, they can create a bank of questions that can be reused several times within a single quiz, within one course, or for their entire program area. Quizzes also allow the teacher to give specific feedback on each question, and general feedback on a student's overall quiz performance. Teachers control how often a student can take a quiz, how much time must elapse between each attempt, how it is scored (highest score achieved, average, first or last) and Moodle does all the math!

Prerequisites: All participants must have their own Moodle course shell with teacher editing rights. Your course can be hosted by OTAN or your school site (Moodle v2). Participants should have completed the "Moodle v2: Create a Course Web Site" workshop prior to this workshop (or its equivalent).

Session length 1.5 hours 
Format Workshops: Synchronous online trainings, or series of trainings, in which facilitator and participants interact by voice or chat.
