Quality Assurance

The maintenance of a desired level of quality in a service or product. In education this implies the inclusion of the quality of teaching, resources, assessments, etc., as well as the quality of the institution.

Quiz activity (Moodle)

The Quiz is a very powerful activity that can meet many teaching needs, from simple, multiple-choice knowledge tests to complex, self-assessment tasks with detailed feedback. Questions are created and stored separately in a Question bank and can be reused in different quizzes. They can be graded automatically by the platform, or they may require grading of the answers to some questions by a tutor (for example, short essay questions or open-ended questions).
