Taking a Peek at “Moodle 1.9 – Testing and Assessment”

1210

From the title it might seem that the Moodle 1.9 – Testing and Assessment book by Jason Myrick is focused solely on the quiz features in Moodle.  That assumption however misses Jason’s coverage of Moodle’s full tool belt of assessment-ready modules.

While this new title by Packt covers the Quiz feature extensively (including a walk through of each quiz question type which is invaluable to Moodlers of all skill level) Mr. Myrick’s chapters also cover some of the lesser featured/known assessment tools like

  • The lesson
  • Workshop
  • Nanogong

The structure and layout of the book is straightforward and easy to follow.  The later chapters exploring specific techniques and ideas for oral, reading and writing-based assessments.
