How Do I Use the Quiz Activity?

Valid for Moodle 2.8.  Updated on 8/3/2015.Creating a quiz is a three part process.  Some question have to be created.  The basic characteristics of the quiz need to be defined. Then questions are added to the quiz.  It is possible to either create the questions at the end of the quiz definition process or as a completely separate step.  Generally, if you create questions with the intention of reusing them in many quizes it may be more logical to do that separately from the quiz definition.  On the other hand, if you tend to create new questions for each quiz, it may be simpler to create them as part of the quiz definition process.
