Self Assessment Engine

Project Description

The aim of this tool is to enable academics and e-learning developers to quickly create easy-to-use, interactive self-assessment quizzes that can be easily incorporated into new or existing projects with a minimal amount of technical knowledge.

One of the disadvantages of the native Moodle quizzes is that they exist as self-contained assessment activities and are accessed from a link on the course page which is separate to the actual educational content. Moodle lesson activities can be used but they are restrictive in format and available question types. A better option is to embed interactive elements such as drag-and-drop activities or simple MCQ quizzes, within the course materials. These simple summative interactions allow students to check their learning as they work through learning materials and keeps them engaged .

A number of question types are available, all of which work on smartphones and tablets and use a clean, modern design which looks better than standard Moodle assessments/quizzes and will fit in with most existing projects.

Software used: Adobe Dreamweaver.
