The Embedded Answers (Cloze) Moodle documentation page describes the syntax required to embed answers. To create a Cloze question: 1. Select “Embedded answers (Cloze)” from the “Create new question” drop-down menu. 2. Type the question text with embedded answers. 3. Continue to add text and embed questions until complete. 4. Click the “Save changes” button to add the question to the category. 5. Add the question to the quiz, then preview it, using the edit icon next to the question number to make additional edits if required.

Importing Questions If you have questions from a textbook question bank, or if you don’t want to use the web interface to create your questions, you can import them from a text file. Moodle supports a range of formats and provides an easy way to create new importers if you know a little PHP. Once you get to know a format, it may be easier to type the questions into a text file than to use the web interface. You can just keep typing instead of waiting for new web pages to load for each question. The default formats include: GIFT With GIFT format, you can write multiple-choice, true/false, short-answer, matching, and numerical questions.
