Carl LeBlond of the Chemistry Department had four additional question types approved and published on Moodle.org. In total, LeBlond has developed eight question types to date, which are available for free download as a set (EasyOChem Question Types Set) on Moodle.org.
These question types provide unprecedented assessment and evaluation of concepts in organic chemistry. The EasyOChem Question Types can also be test driven on Scimersion. Scimersion is a website dedicated to developing and demonstrating software for teaching science with Moodle. Instructors can build highly interactive websites and courses for teaching science (math, computer science, chemistry, and physics). Scimersion is free for high school science instructors and is administered and maintained by LeBlond.
Drag and drop question that tests student’s knowledge of drawing and interpreting Newman Projections. Ask question such as:
Drag and drop question type that assesses students knowledge of constructing and interpreting Fischer Projections. Ask question such as:
Curved Arrow/Electron Pushing question can be used to test and strengthen student’s knowledge of reaction mechanism, resonance, and curved arrow notation. The instructor builds a reaction scheme/mechanism with all electron pushing arrows, and the student must provide the correct arrows on the reaction during assessment. Note: This plugin requires MArvin Applets from Chemaxon.
You can ask questions such as:
With this question type, instructors can query students to reproduce a single molecule, set of molecules, or reactions. This question type is similar to Structure match with editorand the Pattern match with JME editor, but offers some distinct advantages (see features below). This plugin requires Marvin Applets from Chemaxon.
