All assessments are intended to be used as a form of reflective learning as well as preparing students for online assessment in general.

There are no traditional multiple choice questions in these assessments.

Each question is worth one mark unless stated otherwise.

Students cannot move to previous questions during the assessment but are free to do so during the review process.


Students must answer a question to move forward.

When students finish the assessment they can press the review button which will allow them to see their answer for each question as well as the accepted correct answer.

They can then press the explain button which shows them an explanation of the concept(s) tested.

Students can choose to accept a hint or help with some of the questions.

If they do accept that hint or help the marks scored for that question will be reduced.

When reviewing the assessment they will be shown which question they chose to get a hint for and will (if they require this) be shown their answer.

The assessment does not finish until every student has reviewed his/her answers.

In two or three weeks’ time the students can then be given the assessment again in class or asked to do it from home and hopefully their marks and understanding will improve.

For help with uploading these assessments to Moodle please press here:

Please check out the accompanying sufficiency statements for each assessment which includes a scoring guide.

The assessments should work on most devices.

They are fully HTML 5 compatible and should play on android devices as well as devices with iOS (e.g. iPads).

Nevertheless they are fairly resource intensive and a laptop or PC may be preferable.

They have been optimised for Moodle but can be used on other SCORM or Tin Can Learning Management Systems.

Marks are recorded on the LMS and there is additional information available for each question answered e.g. time taken to answer and so on. (Click on the student’s mark in Moodle).

There is a PDF file available with each assessment. This is a fully working version of the assessment (requires the Adobe Flash player as well as Adobe Reader version 9 or higher). This can be used to review the assessment with the students in class without having to log onto Moodle.

I am making these assessments available to all teachers of economics free of charge.
