bank test quizzes written in any word processor. When managing a large
number of questions, this script provides a quick way of bulk loading
This program transforms four types of test questions to the gift format: single answer, multiple answers, short answer and numerical questions.
In single answer mode only one alternative could be marked and there are only two possible ratings: success (100% of the score) or fail (zero points).
In multiple-choice mode questions have at least one correct answer, and multiple alternatives could be checked. The rating of each question will be proportional to the number of correct answers pointed out: if, for example, guesses are only one of two correct answers, the score will be 50%, 33.3% if they were three, etc. Any incorrect answer makes the score will be zero.
In short answer mode answer must be typed and it will be 100% credited if it matches exactly any of the correct responses, or zero otherwise.
A numerical question is like a short answer question in which the answer is a number. Numerical answers can include an error margin, which is written following the correct answer, separated by a colon.
The question formats that Moodle and gift format allow are much wider than the ones presented by this script. You can explore the possibilities offered by Moodle in this link
Instructions for creating a test in gift formatYou can create the questions in any word processor, for example MS Word, with the following scheme: Each question should be expressed in a paragraph followed by the alternatives in each of the adjacent paragraphs. The next question is separated from the previous one by a carriage return (a blank line) and so on. That is to say, the question delimiter is a blank line.
The right choices in each question must be indicated by an asterisk (*) as the first character of the paragraph. Dont number questions or answers since Moodle does it automatically and numeration will be duplicated. (See this image and examples at the end of this page.)
Once you have configured the questions, copy them to the clipboard and paste them into the text area. Make sure you do not spare any blank line at the beginning or at the end of the text. Select question type and press "send". If you wish, you can put an identifier common to the questions to be translated, it is useful to classify and sort them in the Moodle Question Bank.
Save the output file to your hard drive and then import it into the Moodle Question Bank. The text generated by the program is UTF-8 coded and should not cause problems for its incorporation into Moodle. Nevertheless, if text contains some uncommon or exotic characters, is convenient to check them editing the output file and correcting them manually if necessary.
To import the questions log into Moodle--> Question Bank-->Import--> check gift format, select the file you have just saved and follow instructions. (More information about importing questions into Moodle).
