New Plugin – Active Quiz replaces the old face-to-face Realtime quiz activity

Another new plugin added to the Moodle plugins directory is the Active quiz which was originally started as an update to the realtime quiz module, but later grown into a separate module due to the very large functionality additions/changes.

Using Active quiz activity you can offer in class quizzes on any device using a responsive theme, any question type from the question bank, use timed/not timed questions, grades reported back to the grade book, group quizzing (with a group attendance feature), view student responses in real time to offer in-class discussion about the results, and more!
