==Taking a Quiz==
+
**A flagged question is shown with a red triangle at the top right
After clicking on a quiz name the student will be taken to page that displays the quiz name and the quiz introduction. Usually the introduction will tell the student more about the purpose of the quiz and how it will be assessed. If applicable the page will also show the quiz opening and closing dates and times. The student will not be able to access the quiz questions until the opening time. The student must make sure that they submit all answers before the closing time. Late answers will not usually be marked.
+
**Questions on the current page are shown with a thicker border
 +
**After viewing a description, it is shown with the bottom half grey
 +
**After saving an essay question, it is shown with the bottom half grey
 +
**A dependent question is shown in grey with a padlock icon
  
==Retaking a Quiz==
+
*To finish the exam,click "Finish attempt" in the navigation block of "Next" on the last page of the exam.
If a student has already attempted the quiz, they will see a table listing all their previous attempts together with the time the student completed them and the marks and grades. Notice that there may be a difference between the "Marks" and "Grade" column. The teacher may have wanted the grade for the quiz to be out of a certain number of points and the Grade column therefore will contain a rescaling of the Marks column to achieve this.
+
*The "Summary of attempt" page - reviews the questions and alerts you to questions not attempted.
  
==Continuing an uncompleted quiz==
+
[[File:summaryofattempt.png]]
A student may be allowed to return to a quiz or the quiz settings might be set to count the return as a new attempt. If there is no button for starting a new attempt then the student has used the maximum number of attempts allowed for the quiz.
 
  
==Submitting and saving a quiz==
+
*Click on any question page number or "Return to attempt" to go back to the quiz.
The students have several options for saving a quiz. (These need updating for 2.0).
+
*Click on "Submit all and finish" to have your quiz scored. A warning will pop up telling you you can no longer change your answers.
  
Students should also know that every time they change pages in a quiz, Moodle will store their answers. :Typically if their computer or the network crashes, they will be able to enter the quiz and Moodle will still have their answers and consider they are still on their first attempt.
+
===Autosave===
  
# '''Save without submitting''' - which, as its name says, saves the answers without submitting them
+
If Moodle detects that the student's Internet connection has dropped, and the Quiz autosave feature is enabled, a warning message is displayed, prompting the student to make a note of recent responses.
# '''Submit all and finish''' - which saves the whole quiz
 
  
==Viewing a completed quiz==

Quiz autosave is enabled by default, with the default time period set to 2 minutes. This  autosave period can be changed, or the setting disabled completely, from ''Site administration>Plugins>Activity modules>Quiz>Autosave period''.
The teacher may allow the student to go back into a completed quiz to see the quiz pages, questions, the student answers, the correct answer and the score the student received on each question.  The teacher can also see each student's quiz.  
 
  
Remember that in some quizzes, the answers and even the questions can appear in a different order for each students.  For those who are used to paper tests, this could require some adjustment in discussing the quiz.   
+
===How students review a quiz===
 +
*In the quiz navigation block
 +
** A correct answer is shown with the bottom half green with a white tick
 +
** A partially correct answer is shown with the bottom half orange with a white circle in it
 +

[[File:quiz navigation review.png]]
  
===Teacher viewing completed quiz===
+
*In the questions themselves, correct answers will be in green with a check mark. Incorrect answers will be in red with a cross. will have a green check mark next to your correct answer
Once the first student has attempted the quiz, the edit screen looks different. It will not be possible to add or delete questions from the quiz.  The teacher can still edit questions.
 
  
[[Image:Quiz Edit 2 attempts.png‎|thumb|center|Here there have been 2 attempts on this quiz.  The preview and edit icons for each question are available on the right.]]
+
*According to your teacher's settings, you might get general feedback, specific feedback on each question and/or overall feedback on your final score.
  
::''Tip:'' After changing the marks on a question, the teacher can regrade a quiz after a student views it. For example, mark more than one answer as being correct. When a student views the quiz after a regrade, they will see the changes to their marks.
+
*Although the quiz may have been split into multiple pages, the review will show all the questions on a single page to make it easier to navigate. You can chose to review the quiz with separate pages as it was when you took the quiz.
  
==What to do after a quiz==
+
===Results in a quiz using CBM (Certainty-based marking)===
It is a good practice to review the quiz after it has been given.  Students may challenge a question, or ask about the meaning of a question during or after a quiz.  After viewing student attempt scores, the result tab will assist the teacher in looking at questions answered by the class, changing scores for specific answers and regrading the quiz.
 
  
The Item Analysis link, on the Results tab, can assist the teacher in finding questions in the test that should be reviewed. Sorting on the Correct Facility will allow the teacher to quickly see the questions that were most missed or answered correctly.  A question where every student missed it, could mean the teacher tagged the wrong answer as correct or made a typing error in the evaluation of the answer. Unintentional trick questions can often be found by sorting by the "Disc" columns.  This might reveal where the worst quiz takers answered the question better than the best quiz takers.  The item analysis might also reveal the material which was not presented well or perhaps not covered.
+
Quizzes using CBM provide detailed feedback relating to accuracy and certainty:
 +
{|
 +
|[[File:26CBM.png|400px|CBM feedback]]
 +
|}
  
The analysis can also point out correct answers to short answer questions that were not included as a potential when the question was created. Teachers can even look for common misspellings in the correct response and, depending on his or her policy, can award partial or full credit to students for the misspelled response.
+
For more information on how CBM works and how students may benefit from it, see [[Using certainty-based marking]]
  
Questions needing correction can be edited by clicking on the question ID number on the item analysis page. While questions can be edited as students are taking the Quiz, it is not recommended. Understand what question you are editing.  For example is it used in other courses or again in another Quiz in the same course?  Do you want the edited question to be used in the future?
+
===Saving questions and returning later to a quiz===
  
Clicking on regrade link,  on the results tab, will immediately update the scores for all students on all questions for that one specific quiz. '''Do not''' use the regrade link if students are taking the quiz. Be sure you want to recalculate the quiz.  You can regrade the quiz as many times as you want.
+
*If you answer a number of questions and then want to complete the quiz at a later time,click "Finish attempt".
 +
*When you return to continue the quiz, Moodle will remember which page you were on and  allow you to continue from there, having saved your previous questions.
  
This method ensures fairness in scoring on the current quiz and future quizzes while it minimizes the need for “Make comment or override grade” in the individual overview of a students attempt.
+
===Retaking a quiz===
  
Regrade is found on the Results Tab of a Quiz. Regrade is used to force Moodle to recalculate points awarded for correct and incorrect responses to quiz questions after the quiz has been taken by students. It is used when the teacher changes a score or evaluation of a question after the Quiz has been completed by one or more students.
+
If your teacher has allowed multiple attempts, when you click on the quiz again you will be informed how many attempts you have remaining along with your previous scores.

In the results table, you can see the number of times that students have taken part in the activity. For the Quiz activity, the difference between the various actions mentioned in the Quiz Views: view, view all, report and Quiz Posts: attempt, editquestions, review, submit lists is pretty meaningless. Anyway, all it means it that those students who are marked No in the All actions column have not submitted their quiz.
