Aims of this learning project[edit | edit source]
- Introduce Wikiversitarians to the quiz extension.
- Provide for discussion and contribution to a methodology of using the quiz extension to enhance the educational value of Wikiversity pages.
- Promote individual and collaborative development of quizzes on Wikiversity.
- Provide feedback to the quiz extension developers.
Schools to which this project belongs[edit | edit source]
Current activities[edit | edit source]
- April 2007: most activity is over at the MediaWiki talk page for the quiz extension, where we are discussing the development of the quiz extension.
- Late April 2007: discussion has started a lot on this Wikiversity now and is currently centered on the talk page for quiz extension documentation.
- There is now a mobile phone program (Occleve) which can download and run quizzes offline. A forthcoming release of the software will enable new questions to be added offline on the phone, and uploaded back to Wikiversity, subject to safeguards. Please see Quiz/Mobile phone software for details.

Timescale[edit | edit source]
This is intended as a permanent project with no specific timeline.
Feature wishlist[edit | edit source]
- Reduce amount of blank space above the submit button.
- The ability to manually number quiz questions. // supported by GIFT format below
- Add a timer to quiz.
- Add "clickable maps", i.e. pointing within a certain region in an illustration for correct answer.
- Make the quizzes compatible with Moodle (an open source learning management system) <question> </question> XML tags, simplifying import and export to/from Moodle. // supported by GIFT format below
- Promote score to a known Variable so that a template can manipulate it
- Can Moodle Tests be implemented as an anchor from a wiki-page? (I.E. write the test in moodle, and link it to the wikipage, then use moodle to manage it?) We could put a link to the moodle into the new Faculty portal? Students would have to register for the course, to get their marks. // supported by GIFT format
- GIFT format and extensions for assessment content in addition to Quiz table markup: import from and export to both formats (discuss)
- A simple way to hide the results for answers not selected, and only show the result for the selected answer. This would allow the user to keep trying till they got the right answer.
- A simple way to refresh the page to clear the answers.
- The ability to create a questionnaire with totals based on response made, e.g., if there are three questions, a respondent might score 2, 4, and 1 respectively, giving a total of 7.
- Add a question type for extended responses, ie. a 3-15 line textarea that students can fill up and compare with a model answer or rubric in the feedback for the question.

- Ryan Lane's memorize extension offers an elegant (but not yet implemented?) pair matching widget for MediaWiki. To see it at its best:
- Go to https://www.edualexa.in/2020/03/gk-questions-for-class-5.html
- Click "memorize".
- Then click "matching mode", which is perhaps the best mode.
