The platform has multiple options of assessments.
Calculated offer a way to create individual numerical questions by the use of wildcards that are substituted with individual values when the quiz is taken.
This allows students to write at length on a particular subject and must be manually graded. New feature
in Moodle 2.5!
It is possible for a teacher to create a template to scaffold the student's answer in order to give them extra support. The template is then reproduced in the text editor when the student starts to answer the question.

What the student sees
A list of sub-questions is provided, along with a list of answers. The respondent must "match" the correct answers with each question.
These very flexible questions consist of a passage of text (in Moodle format) that has various answers embedded within it, including multiple choice, short answers and numerical answers.
With the Multiple Choice question type you can create single-answer and multiple-answer questions, include pictures, sound or other media in the question and/or answer options (by inserting HTML) and weight individual answers.
In response to a question (that may include an image), the respondent types a word or phrase. There may be several possible correct answers, with different grades. Answers may or may not be sensitive to case.
From the student perspective, a numerical question looks just like a short-answer question. The difference is that numerical answers are allowed to have an accepted error. This allows a continuous range of answers to be set.
Random short-answer matching
From the student perspective, this looks just like a Matching question. The difference is that the sub-questions are drawn randomly from Short Answer questions in the current category.
In response to a question (that may include an image), the respondent selects from two options: True or False.
