Which formats are used for importing questions?

If you want to create questions outside of Moodle these two text based formats might be the most important:

  • GIFT – Moodle ‘proprietary’ text format for import and export. Reasonably comprehensive.
See GIFT format.
Here is a 2-column GIFT format reference sheet: GIFT Reference Sheet
  • Moodle XML – Moodle ‘proprietary’ xml format for import and export. Very comprehensive.

You find the complete list of supported formats under Import questions.
