This is a pretty neat plug-in for the Moodle Quiz module that allows Music teachers to use Moodle more effectively:
This question type deals with music intervals. The respondent is given a note and is prompted to enter a second note at a given interval. Answers are entered in a graphical user interface.
More information and a screen shot are available at http://moodle.org/mod/data/view.php?d=13&rid=3320

This goes to show the growing flexibility of Moodle for non-traditional uses and it’s ability to support all subjects (including the arts). Important to know also is that there are 31 alternate question types available through the Plug-in/Module database. These plug-ins allow Moodlers to extend the quiz module in order to ask more complicated questions. For a full list of contributed Question Types follow this link: http://goo.gl/ugaD.
Here are a few other question types of note:
- Image Target – similar to the “hot spot” option with other popular quiz authoring tools
- Drag and Drop ordering
What’s your favorite question type?
