MoodleQuestionRules

RTEMS has a Moodle which can support quizzes. When creating questions, please follow these rules.

On the file itself:

  • Create them in GIFT format.
  • Name the file "XXXManagerMoodle.txt". Where XXX is the name of the manager
  • Use a plain text editor to create them. vi, emacs, notepad, gedit, pico, etc. are but a few examples of text editors.

On the individual questions:

  • Name the questions something like "XXX Manager Q0n - topic". Such that questions are numbered Q01..Q09 Q10..Q99
  • Provide reasons as to why the incorrect answers are wrong.
  • Make sure there is a blank line between questions. They do not import correctly otherwise.
  • Check your spelling.
  • Write questions in complete sentences.
  • Avoid question types like free form responses that will require human grading.
  • Moodle may rearrange the answers so avoid the answers such as "All of the Above" or "None of the Above"
