The GIFT Format can be a bit overwhelming for those that are not comfortable with learning a new formatting syntax; however, GIFT can be very beneficial for writing or converting questions. GIFT is similar to Aiken format as it must be created/submitted via .txt file type. Before going to the effort of learning GIFT Format, we recommend reaching out to the Moodle Administrator to see if there is a different path of least resistance that will be more convenient for you. You can find some example formatted question types below:
Other than more importable question types, GIFT offers the opportunity to include more complex scenarios, such as programmed feedback, percentage answer weights, multiple answers, and many more.
If you have specific inquiries or questions about GIFT, we encourage you to reach out to IT Services and the Moodle Administrator to learn more.
