Video: Question Type Plugins for Smarter Balanced Type Questions in Moodle


This video is a presentation by Dave Johnson which highlights school districts struggling to build assessments in Moodle that better suit the needs of a specific content area (Social Studies). The challenge was creating questions which helped to better prepare students for Smarter Balanced questions which are part of the “MSTEP” standardized assessments in the state of MI.
