MOODLE COURSE ENROL
Can't find your test in Moodle? You need to tell Moodle to enrol you into the right course (A Moodle "course" is a subject)
E.g. To do the test 10201 Free Body Diagrams, you must be enrolled into MEM30005A Forces; (As stated here)
Login to Moodle: Home > Courses > MEM3005A Forces (or )> Click
CHANGING YOUR PASSWORD
After you log in, you can change your password. In the Settings bar on left, click on My Profile Settings > Edit Profile.
If you forget your password you need to use your email to get a new one (or teacher can do it).
Your default email is your educational email: First.Last@tafensw.net.au (you need this if you forget your password)
RUNNING A TEST
You will usually get two attempts at each test and must achieve around 70% (average for each subject). To run a test, navigate to the correct Moodle Course (e.g. MEM30007A Select Materials), then below the assessment table you will see a list of quizzes labelled using Tester ID numbers. (e.g. 10101 Material Properties). It is safe to click the link to the quiz you want, you do not actually run the test until you press the button:
There is no going back from here. The time is running and if you back out the test will continue on the server (even if you turn off your computer). The test will finish by running out of time or pressing the Submit button at the bottom.
The way units are entered in Moodle is different to iTester. You need to type the units after the answer. See instruction below.
- Units must be entered as standard abbreviations.
- Spaces and capitals have no effect.
- Standard accuracy is 1% (3 significant figures)

CHECKING YOUR RESULTS
Once you have completed your Moodle quiz, press
You will instantly record your mark, and you can log in any time to check your marks.
If you want to see the results for each question you will need to go through the quiz with the teacher. Question feedback will not be made available to students to view because there are remote students and various timetables running simultaneously. Any errors in a question can also be dealt with (sometimes on the spot) and if a question needs repair the entire database will be re-marked (i.e. everyone who answered correctly may get more marks).
