Quizzes are a good way of assessing the students either in a formative or a summative way and to provide instant feedback to the students as they allow for automated scoring and score-dependent feedback.
Go to the course page and Turn editing on. Scroll to the section where you want your Quiz to be displayed, click Add an activity or resource and pick select Quiz.

Tip: Click on the question mark icon next to any setting to display extra help or click on Moodle Docs for this page link at the bottom of each page in Moodle for accessing context-specific documentation.
Grade to pass - set a pass grade, which then would define activity completion.
Attempts allowed – set the number of allowed attempts. Formative (self test) quizzes will usually allow students multiple attempts, summative (exam condition) quizzes only one.
Grading method– which grade of several attempts (highest, average etc.) is recorded.
Use these to control what students see in terms of feedback, marks, correct answer indication (and more) when they check previous attempts at a quiz and during an attempt if using adaptive mode (to be set in Question behaviour).
Shot Show the user’s picture - Showing user pictures during while completing the quiz can be set here, which might be useful if the quiz activity is used as part of an invigilated exam.
In the next section, use One or multiple answers to control whether one or more answer options are allowed. Leave Shuffle the choices selected, if the answer options should be shuffled each time the question is displayed. This is useful in exam situations where students might be tempted to look at someone else’s screen. However, it is also useful if students are using the quiz formatively and viewing the questions repeatedly. Use Number the choices if you want other than the default ‘a, b, c’ for answer options.
Then enter the answers, the grade and any specific feedback. In the example below, there is no feedback. This will result in automatic feedback depending on the grade i.e. the answer marked 100% will get a Correct message and the others Incorrect. The exact text of the automatic feedback is set in in the Combined feedback section.
Explore You can explore the other options but a simple question will not require them. As you proceed with question set up, you may want to regularly Save changes and continue editing.
Unfortunately, there isn't a way to bulk re-upload submissions. Therefore, it is not possible to annotate scripts, as is the case when using the Assignment activity.
