Quiz is a tool for automatically graded multiple choice and other types of questions, 18 different question types in all, including essays, numerical calculated questions, drag and drop, short answer and Stack for mathematics. It can be used in exams as well.

For maths or calculated problems use the calculated question, simple calculated questions or calculated multichoice question types. Wildcards are the MyCourses/Moodle/Quiz equivalents of variables. These functions can be used to make elaborate calculations in these calculated question types. Note that these calculated question types only verify the numerical value given by the student. Use Stack when you want to inspect intermediate steps. The MyCourses workspace MyMathematics - Mathematical exercises in MyCourses has examples on how to use Stack and the above-mentioned calculated question types.

Questions and choices can be shuffled. You can give students feedback on their answers that is immediate or deferred. In an exam, always use deferred feedback.

Creating a quiz is a two-step process: you first create the quiz and then add questions to it. The workspace question bank contains all your questions. A question bank can be imported from another workspace.
