How Do I ‘Pass’ My Course?


If you scroll down to the very end of the list of modules in the course, the last one should be a Quiz.  Not all modules have a quiz, but most of them do.

If you click on the quiz it will bring you to a page like this one.

The ‘pass mark’ of the quiz is given to you in the instructions, in this case it is 80%.

If you fail to get 80% on both attempts you need to register to take the course again.  This is to stop people from simply trying their luck until they get it right, and making sure you do actually engage with the course materials!

You only get two attempts at a quiz to pass.

The quizzes also have a time limit which is very generous if you know your course material.  It is set to stop you from looking up every answer and ensures you know your course material.

When you are ready click on Attempt quiz now

And just in case you hit the button by accident or the phone rings, you will be asked to confirm that you want to start the quiz. Click Start attempt

Quizzes are Multiple Choice / True or False.  For each question, select one of the answers given.

The Quiz navigation (see below) in the top left of the screen tells you which questions you have answered and which you still need to do.

You can go back to a question later on if you want to skip it and answer the rest and then see how much time you have left at the end to go back to the ‘tricky’ questions.

To pause at any time click on Finish attempt

When you have finished Click on Next at the bottom of the Quiz

Moodle will then present you with a summary of your answers (see below).

Moodle will ‘save’ the answers you have given it until you give it an alternative answer.

On this occasion, you can tell Moodle you have changed your mind and go back and change your answers by clicking on Return to attempt.

Once you are happy with your answer selection, you need to click on the button Submit all and finish at the bottom of the summary screen.

If you don’t do this, your quiz results will not registered and Moodle will not register your pass.

You will be asked to confirm that you do want to submit your answers.  Click Submit all and finish.
