Two useful updates in Moodle Quizzes

You will now find two useful updates to the Moodle quiz question type Essay question: A minimum/maximum word counter and Turnitin’s originality checker is now available, to flag text that has been matched to a source in one of Turnitin’s three databases.

Student view:

  • If the word limits set for the essay are not met, the student will see that their answer is incomplete because the answer is too short or long.

For the teacher:

  • Set word limit to essay-type questions. During grading, the teacher can clearly see, whether the students have followed the word restrictions or not.
  • Turnitin’s originality checker compares the student’s answer to its three databases. See Introduction to Turnitin (Teacher guide)
