What is the Aiken quiz format?
The Aiken format allows you to easily export multiple choice quiz questions from a Word or other text document, into Moodle.
The Aiken format is a very simple way of creating multiple choice questions using a clear human-readable format in a text file.
Creating Moodle quiz questions in the Aiken format
Here are two resources that show you exactly how to prepare your questions for import from a Word file into the Aiken format.
These tutorials also cover how to import the prepared question text file into the Moodle question bank, and adding them into your quiz.
Other quiz question formats
If you have other question types to add, such as True/False, matching, or fill-in the blank, the GIFT format may be a better format to use for importing large numbers of questions into the Moodle question bank. See the Related Resources below.
