Adding TILT Modules and Quizzes to Moodle Courses
To facilitate the integration of TILT into Moodle courses we have prepared a zipped TILT archive. This file can be loaded into classes to automatically add links to the four tutorial modules and import the quizzes developed for each module.
To begin, download the following file and save it to your computer:
Next, select "Restore" in the Settings menu of the Moodle course where you want to import TILT.
This will bring up an "Import a backup file" screen where you can drag and drop the backup file. (You can also select "Choose a File" -> "Upload a file" and then browse for the backup file.) Once you have the proper file, click "Restore".
On the next page (details about the materials being restored) scroll to the bottom and select "Continue."
On the next page, under "Restore into this course", verify that "Merge the backup course into this course" is selected and click "Continue."
Leave the settings on the two pages, "Restore Settings" and "Course Settings" as they are and click "Next".
On the next page confirm your settings and click "Perform Restore".
Once the restore process is complete, select "Continue" one more time.
You should then see imported components in weeks 3-7 of your Moodle class.
Week 3 will have a link to a page with a brief video introducing the the Hartness Library and the types of resources we have access to.
Weeks 4-7 contain the four TILT modules. They each consist of:
- a brief description of the module,
- a link to the TILT module (opens in a pop-up window), and
- the TILT quiz corresponding to the module.
Note: The quizzes are imported as graded and will show up in the Moodle gradebook. To adjust the grading see Adjusting Grading for the TILT Quizzes.
Once you have imported TILT you can move, edit or delete any of these components just as you do with any other elements in a Moodle course. Feel free to rearrange the TILT components in whatever way makes them work best with your course.
Click on the quiz from the main course page to open it...
...and then, under the "Settings" menu (in the left column) select "Edit quiz".
By default, each quiz is worth 10 points:
- In order to change the number of points a quiz is worth in your class, simply change the "Maximum grade" and select "Save". (You can leave the individual question grades set to "1")
- In order to make the quiz ungraded simply change the "Maximum grade" to "0" and select "Save". (You can leave the individual question grades set to "1") Once you set the maximum score to zero, no grades for that quiz will show in the Gradebook.
Note that you can still change the quiz grading after students have taken a quiz, but you will need to go into the Quiz results page and select "Regrade" to force Moodle to recalculate the previous grades with your new settings.
