Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.2. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Question types.
You may add a variety of different types of questions in the Quiz and Lesson modules. There are more question types in the Quiz module. Please use the links on the right to find very specific information about standard questions types that are found in both modules.
Moodle is moving towards having a "question bank" that is available for both quiz and lesson modules in 2.0.
Third-party question types
Besides the standard question types that are part of the core Moodle distribution, there are question type plugins contributed by the community.
Drag and Drop
Please see the Drag and Drop question tutorial for more information.
The Java Molecular Editor question type allows you to ask students to design and submit a molecular structure.
Regular Expression Short Answer
Template:Moodle 1.6Like the Short Answer question, the RegExp Short Answer question expects the student to answer an "open" question with a word or a short phrase. However, using so-called regular expressions gives you access to a more powerful system for analysing the student's answers and thus providing more adapted feedback messages. The Regular Expression Short Answer question type is available for Moodle 1.6 from the Modules and plugins database.
