Add a multiple choice question to a quiz

Note: This guide assumes you have already created a quiz activity in your Moodle paper and now want to add a multiple choice question to the quiz. The various question types have different editing screens; Multiple Choice is only one example of question setup.

  1. Select Turn editing on in the top right-hand corner of your page.

  2. Select the quiz you would like to add the question to.
  3. Select the Edit quiz button.

  4. Select Add on the right-hand side, then select + a new question.
  5. Select Multiple choice in the types of Questions list and Select Add.

  6. Provide a name for your question which is only visible to you as a teacher (it is helpful to name questions with a meaningful name in terms of the content they relate to, rather than generic names such Question 1, Question 2).

  7. Provide the text for the question which will be seen by the students.

  8. Next, provide the default mark that is given when the answer is correct.

  9. Under the Answers section, provide the answer options.

  10. Allocate grade values for the various options. For example, select the correct answer to 100% and leave the other answers as None (0%).
  11. Finally, scroll down and select Save changes or Save changes and continue editing. The question will be saved to the quiz you are editing.

Moodle and Panopto are unavailable every Thursday 7:00 am – 7:30 am.
