Quiz Activity 4.1: Interpreting Quiz Results [Faculty]


Once a student has completed a quiz and it has been graded, the instructor will be able to go into the reports to view the results of the quiz. Quiz grades can be viewed for the entire class or the instructor can look at them individually and make comments, or override a score.

This Guide Will Help You to:

  • View quiz attempts and results

  • Download and save reports

  • Quiz responses

  • Seek further assistance

At the bottom of the table, it will show the overall average and score based upon what you wanted included in the report.

The graph for the reports will show the graded score, the total points possible on the x- axis, and the number of students who received that score on the y-axis.

Download and save reports

Quiz results can be downloaded and saved in a variety of formats including Excel spreadsheet format and Comma separated files. This is a useful function if you wish to use the data outside of Moodle. For example you may wish to maintain an archive of past results or you could use the data as part of a research project.
