Moodle Quiz Attempts: How to Download and Print Blank or Completed Quizzes
How to Download Quiz Attempts in Moodle
Moodle is a popular learning management system that allows teachers and students to create and manage online courses. One of the features of Moodle is the quiz activity, which lets teachers create and administer quizzes for assessment and feedback purposes. Quizzes can be used to test students' knowledge, skills, and understanding of the course content, as well as to provide them with immediate feedback and guidance. Quizzes can also help teachers monitor students' progress, identify areas of difficulty, and adjust their teaching accordingly.
But how can teachers access and download the quiz attempts from their students? And how can they use the data from the quizzes to analyze the results and improve their teaching? In this article, I will show you how to create a quiz in Moodle, how to download quiz attempts from students, and how to use the quiz reports to analyze the results. I will also share some tips and benefits of using Moodle quizzes for online learning.

How to create a quiz in Moodle
Creating a new quiz in Moodle is a two-step process. In the first step, you create the quiz activity and set its options which specify the rules for interacting with the quiz. In the second step, you add questions to the quiz from different sources.
Quiz settings and options
To create a new quiz activity, go to your course page and turn on the editing mode. Then, click on "Add an activity or resource" and choose "Quiz" from the list. Give your quiz a name and a description, and then expand the other sections to select the settings you want.
Some of the important settings you can configure are:
Timing: You can specify when the quiz is open and close for students to attempt it, and whether there is a time limit for completing it.
Grade: You can set how many attempts are allowed, how grades are calculated, and what grade category to use.
Layout: You can decide how many questions are shown per page, and whether to shuffle the order of questions or pages.
Question behaviour: You can choose how questions are graded, whether students can change their answers, and whether they get feedback during or after the attempt.
Review options: You can control what information students can see after they finish the quiz, such as their marks, correct answers, feedback, etc.
Appearance: You can customize how the quiz looks, such as the text size, colour scheme, navigation method, etc.
Extra restrictions on attempts: You can add extra security measures, such as requiring a password or a specific network address, or allowing offline attempts in the mobile app.
For more details on each setting, see .
Adding questions from different sources
After you have created the quiz activity and saved it, you can start adding questions to it. There are three ways to add questions:
Add a new question: This option allows you to create a new question from scratch. You can choose from different question types, such as multiple choice, true/false, short answer, numerical, essay, etc. You can also add media files, such as images, audio, or video, to your questions. For more details on each question type, see .
Select from question bank: This option allows you to select existing questions from the question bank. The question bank is a repository of questions that you or other teachers have created in your course or category. You can organize your questions into categories and subcategories, and use tags to filter them. You can also edit, duplicate, or delete questions from the question bank. For more details on how to use the question bank, see .
Import questions from file: This option allows you to import questions from an external file. Moodle supports various file formats, such as Aiken, Blackboard, Examview, Gift, Moodle XML, etc. You can import questions into a specific category in the question bank, or directly into the quiz. For more details on how to import questions, see .
To add questions to your quiz, click on "Edit quiz" in the quiz administration block. Then, use the buttons on the right side of the page to add a new question, select from question bank, or import questions from file. You can also drag and drop questions from the question bank into the quiz. You can rearrange the order of the questions by dragging and dropping them up or down. You can also assign different marks to each question by typing in the box next to it.

Previewing and testing the quiz
Before you make your quiz available to students, you should preview and test it to make sure it works as expected. To preview your quiz, click on "Preview" in the quiz administration block. This will open a new window where you can attempt the quiz as a student. You can check if the questions are displayed correctly, if the feedback is appropriate, and if the grading is accurate. You can also try different settings and options to see how they affect the quiz behaviour.
To test your quiz, you can ask a colleague or a friend to attempt it and give you feedback. You can also create a dummy student account and enrol it in your course to test the quiz from a student's perspective. You can review the quiz attempts and reports to see how the quiz works for real users.
How to download quiz attempts from students
Once your students have attempted your quiz, you may want to download their responses and grades for offline analysis or backup purposes. There are two ways to download quiz attempts from students:
Export quiz attempts plugin
The export quiz attempts plugin is an additional plugin that you can install in your Moodle site to enable you to export quiz attempts in various formats, such as Excel, CSV, PDF, etc. You can export all or selected attempts for a quiz, and choose which columns and fields to include in the export file. You can also filter the attempts by group, status, grade range, etc.
To use this plugin, you need to have admin access to your Moodle site and install it from . After installing it, you will see a new option called "Export" in the quiz administration block. Click on it and follow the instructions to export your quiz attempts.
Moodle Mobile quiz offline attempts
If you have enabled offline attempts for your quiz in the settings, your students can attempt your quiz using the Moodle Mobile app even when they are not connected to the internet. Their responses will be saved locally on their device and synchronized with the Moodle site when they go online again.
To download these offline attempts from students' devices, you need to have teacher access to your course and use the Moodle Mobile app yourself. Open your course in the app and go to the quiz activity. Tap on "Attempts" and then on "Download all". This will download all the offline attempts from students' devices to your device. You can then view them in the app or export them to another app.
