Viewing the Quiz Statistics Report in Moodle

Reviewing reports from your quizzes can help identify patterns or issues with specific questions. It can also help you see how well your students are grasping the information. For example, if you see students missing the same question on a quiz. This may mean the question needs rewording, or the material needs more review during class. In this guide I will show you how to view the Quiz Statistics Report in Moodle. This allows teachers to see the results of quizzes they’ve given, and also see the information in a chart form.
