Creating Quiz Questions with AI

Step 1 – Have the content you would like to create quiz questions from ready

Step 2 – Go to ChatGPT

Step 3 – Write your prompt. You want to be as clear as possible when it comes to writing your prompts to get a good result.

Think about:
– What type of quiz question you want (mc, t/f, fill in the blanks)
– How many questions do you want produced?
– How many alternative answers would you like?
– How AI can indicate the correct answer.

Step 4 – Put all these pieces together to form a prompt something like this:

Create a multiple-choice quiz with 2 questions with 4 alternatives each and put a star next to the correct answers. Create the questions based on this content: [copy & paste your content here]

Getting Your Questions from ChatGPT to H5P Quiz

Step 1 – Copy from ChatGPT into Word document. It’s a good idea to review & reformat before putting the questions into the H5P tool.

Step 2 – Once you’re happy with your questions, go to you Moodle course and create an H5P Quiz.

Step 3 – In Moodle, add a new activity/resource and select H5P Interactive Content option (green icon).

Step 4 – For the content type, select Quiz (Question Set).

Step 5 – Now you can start creating your H5P Quiz. Select the question type that you specified in ChatGPT (m/c, t/f, etc.)

Step 6 – From your Word document, copy and paste quiz question content in. Starting with the question and all answer options. Be sure to check mark the correct box for the correct answer.

Step 7 – ChatGPT may or may not have provided answer explanations. These can be added if preferred for immediate question feedback.

Step 8 – One you have inputted your questions, be sure to save and return to course in Moodle!
