Press release from: Packt Publishing

Moodle 1.9 Testing and Assessment is a new book from Packt that puts together a variety of modules and activities that will help readers to easily create a variety of tests on any subject and assess them using Moodle Gradebook. Written by Jason Myrick, this book will assist readers to develop and assess simple as well as complex quizzes and tests.

Moodle is a free web application that educators can use to create effective online learning sites. It is designed to help educators create online courses with a focus on interaction and collaborative construction of content. Its open source license and modular design allows developers to create additional modules and features.

Moodle 1.9 Testing and Assessment starts off by teaching readers to create different types of questions such as short answer questions, multiple choice questions, and so on. Users will then realize how to integrate all of them in a Moodle quiz and to create a complete test by setting the various options such as Timing, Display, and others. They will learn how to test and assess students through work submitted using Moodle Workshop which also provides an opportunity for self- and peer-assessment of the student's work.

Using this book, Moodle administrators and educators will be able to test their students' listening and comprehension skills for details using audio, video, and forums. They will be able to evaluate students’ reading skills using Timed reading quizzes and Hot Potatoes, assess their speaking ability by recording multiple audio files and tracking their comments by using NanoGong and Voiceboard. Finally, they will also learn to track the progress of the tests and thus, monitor student's improvement by setting up a Moodle Gradebook.

Packed with illustrative examples and screenshots, this book is ideal for Moodle tutors and Moodle Administrators who are responsible for developing and evaluating an online test using Moodle. The book assumes that readers have already successfully installed and set up a Moodle site for teaching. The book is out now and available from Packt.
