Quizzes and Questionnaires


Exams and Surveys

Moodle allows you to take exams ("Quizzes") or complete surveys ("Questionnaires") online. Your answers are submitted for grading, and the results are recorded in the grade book. Surveys can be used for polling purposes or evaluations, and are not graded (although you may receive points for a submission).

NOTE: Your instructor may choose to password protect an exam. You will need to type the valid password and click Submit to begin the exam. You will be prompted for a valid password until the correct one is provided.


Viewing Your Exam Results

Depending on the instructor’s preferences after you submit your exam, you will be able to review information that may or may not include:

  • Score
  • Submitted answers
  • Correct answers
  • Feedback

Some instructors activate this information after everyone has completed the exam. In this case, to view the information at a later time, simply access the exam as if you were going to take it again and open the Review link to see your results.
