Quiz: Adding Automatic Page Breaks

This is called pagination- it’s controlling how many questions appear on a given page in a quiz, after doing this you can manually add or remove these automatic page breaks. Adding new questions to a quiz after applying this setting will enforce that pagination on all new questions.

Enter the Quiz you wish to modify

Locate the Actions Menu (gear icon) from the top-right corner of the page.

Select the Edit Quiz option.

At the top of the Editing Quiz page, click the Repaginate button

repageBtn

A menu will appear.

Set the value in the provided box (how many questions you want per page)

Click the Go button

Note: We advise that you not put too many or too few questions on any page in Moodle as quiz data on a page is not saved until a student moves onto the next page. It is a best practice to write quizzes that keep a student on a quiz page for no more than 5 minutes, as this will minimize a loss of data (in case of connection loss) and will keep the student from needing to constantly reload Moodle (which can increase the chance of connection loss).
