Usability of Moodle question types by EFL teachers

Abdul Syahid

Abstract


The obvious fact that not all features of a software computer are used has driven the researcher to examine the usability of question types in the quiz activity module of Moodle. To examine which question types were perceived useful, easy to use and learn along with satisfying and the dimensions that made them probably adopted in the day-to-day teaching-learning process, 30 teachers of English as a foreign language having no previous Moodle experiences assessed 23 question types question using the Usefulness, Satisfaction, and Ease of Use Questionnaire. The participants showed agreements on the dimensions of usefulness, ease of use and learning, along with the satisfaction of 10 types in which Random Short-Answer Matching, Multiple Choice, OU Multiple Response, and True/False were most highly rated. Findings also suggest that the agreement levels of usefulness and ease of use were comparatively higher than that of the other dimensions. The adoption of Moodle question types in the classrooms could be motivated by their usefulness and ease of use. This study may help explore the fundamental needs of the teachers when administering online tests in the Moodle-based e-assessment.
