You can find a description of the qcreate module in the Moodle modules and plugins database here.


Installation is as for other Moodle modules. You need unzip the plugin in {yourmoodleroot}/mod/ then click on admininistration block->notifications to run the install script.

For instructions for installing downloading and installing a Moodle module see Installing contributed modules or plugins or see Installing 3rd Party Modules in Moodle video.

Make sure you have set up cron properly on your server. You can check it is set up properly by visiting {yourmoodleroot}/admin/. A message will appear if cron is not working.


Using the module is simple. You set up an activity by adding an activity to a course.


Students create questions then you grade them. Note that if you allow students to edit their own questions then in the grading view questions that have been edited since you last graded them will be marked as needing regrading. Students cannot edit their questions after the activity has closed though. You may want to grade all questions once before the activity closes and allow students a chance to edit their questions after you have graded and commented on their questions and then regrade any questions that have been edited.
