In general, quizzes help determine what students have learned. A well-designed test can give critical information about a student's understanding of the material.
 
  
Feedback about performance and self-assessment are important parts of a learning environment. There are several ways to give feedback to students: on each question or overall. The quiz module can display feedback and scores at different times during the quiz, using the review options.
 
  
A wide variety of [[Quiz reports]] (in addition to [[Grades]]) are available. Quiz reports not only can focus on a single student's attempt to answer each question, but also can perform a robust analysis of a question's validity based upon aggregated student responses.

The quiz module index page lists all the quiz activities in the course, organized under four headings:
 
 
 
# '''Topic''' - the number of the block, in which the given quiz appears
 
# '''Name''' - the name of the quiz
 
# '''Quiz closes''' - the date after which the quiz will be closed
 
# '''Attempts''' - if there have been any attempts at the quiz, you will see the text 'View reports for x attempts (y Students)', 'x' being the number of attempts and 'y' the number of students attempting at the quiz. Otherwise, the field will be empty.
