Quiz Questions From Students Glossary

by Randy Orwin - 

· The same high school science teacher used another glossary to have students create three quiz questions from the research that they did in the organ study glossary. This glossary was setup so that the students were given one of the Moodle quiz format types, and they created quiz questions matching one of the import formats. The glossary was set so that teacher approval was required before any posts were live so students couldn't see each others questions. After all the questions were submitted, the teacher exported them into a text document and imported all the questions into the quiz module and then tested the students. It worked flawlessly.
