Daniel Thies along with German Valero had shared the Atto Cloze editor plugin for Moodle with the Moodle community seeking the feedback on usability and on documentation and additional features of the plugin.

Feedback Required - Atto Cloze Editor plugin for #MoodleThe Atto cloze editor plugin will add a button to the atto text editor through which you can add the embedded answer (cloze) questions easily. To test out the plugin on your development server, you can download the plugin from this github page.

To install extract the zip file contents into the Atto editor plugins directory your-Moodle-site/lib/editor/atto/plugins and visit notifications to update database.

Then add ‘cloze’ to the list of buttons in Atto toolbar settings at Site administration -> Plugins -> Text editors -> Atto HTML editor -> Atto toolbar settings. The button should appear in the editor only while editing questions.

Click the button while editing a question, select the question type and a form will appear form entering answers. Finally insert into the question text.

A similar plugin has been available for the TinyMCE editor for some time, and has been maintained by German Valero.
