StudentQuiz

Gifu-city Moodle has a new activity called 'StudentQuiz'. This new quiz activity if added by your lecturer is a great tool to allow students to collaboratively create and contribute their own quiz questions using a variety of question types. Created questions will be collectively added into a pool of questions which other students participating in the course can then complete. The use of this activity promotes collaboration and allows for a creative and useful source of revision for your course.

If your lecturer has created a StudentQuiz activity within your Moodle course, the below information will outline some of the useful features available to you within the StudentQuiz.
