Concept of Qpractice Module

The basic idea is that the teacher sets up a bank of questions organised into categories. Then the student can then choose what questions they want to practice when. This is about student-centred learning based on the capabilities of the Moodle question bank.

Steps to follow to set-up module

Below are some steps with snapshots that teacher can follow in order to create a working qpractice instance.

Teacher side

Step 1

First step for any teacher is to create an instance of module.

Step 2

After the instance for qpractice module has been created, teacher is redirected to setting form for that instance. The setting form contains some general options like name, introduction and behaviour. The behaviour selected by teacher in settings are the only ones that will be visible to student ie: the student will have to select only from those behaviour.

Step 3

After editing settings for an instance, the next step for teacher is to add questions to question bank. There are certain rules to be followed while adding questions to question bank.

  1. Questions should be added only in context space of that instance.
  2. All the parent level categories created by teacher are visible to students: Example: If a teacher has 3 parent level categories ie: Topic 1 , Topic 2, Topic 3. These top level categories will be visible to student. Whenever a student starts practice he will be provided with option to select category from list of available categories. After that students are asked questions randomly from that category without being repetated.
  3. Teacher can create any number of sub-categories inside parent level category. Only parent level category are visible to student.
