Telling the Time: Multiple Choice Quizzes
This page describes a Qedoc learning module or quiz entitled "Telling the Time: Multiple Choice Quizzes". You can download the module from this page to put on your computer. You can also launch the module straight off the web using the launch quiz link on the right-hand side of this page. Another way to access this quiz is to install the Qedoc Quiz Player and bring up its directory of downloadable quizzes. Whichever way you choose to use it, it's free.
This module uses the Qedoc Quiz Player's clock functions to create a set of multiple choice quizzes which test time telling. The four quizzes are sequenced from easy to hard. Children are tested on progressively more complex expressions of time.
One of the key features of this module is the use of random time and clock problem generators. Every time a quiz is taken, it is automatically populated with a fresh set of questions.
At the easiest level, additional help is given by using easier clockfaces and clockfaces which combine graphical and digital/verbal aids. Hourly intervals are also used, so only the most basic of time expressions are tested at this level.
At the hardest level the following features are included: use of clockfaces with Roman numerals, time-telling down to 1-minute intervals, conversion between digital and verbal forms of expression, conversion between short and long forms of verbal expression.
Multiple attempts are allowed. Questions timers are used to encourage learners to keep up the pace. Results are tracked over time so that parents can monitor progress. Attractive sound effects and graphics are used. A rewards system motivates learners to maintain progress.
The module contains the following activities:
- Telling the time: very easy multiple choice questions.
- Telling the time: moderately easy multiple choice questions
- Telling the time: multiple choice questions with more difficult times.
- Telling the time: hard multiple choice questions.
- Extra conversion tasks for changing am/pm times into 24-hour form.

How to use this module
To use a Qedoc learning module, the following procedure is recommended:
- Really easy: click the click here to launch hyperlink at the top right of the page. Then just wait and click your way (if necessary) through any dialogue screens. The module will launch straight off the web.
- Fairly easy: if you wish to have the module downloaded to your desktop, then start the Qedoc Quiz Player (which you can download and install on your computer if you haven't done so yet) and run through the starting dialogues until it presents you with a list of modules to load. Switch to the online learning modules tab, and the Qedoc Quiz Player will download a list of currently published modules from the web. Choose your desired module (this one) from the list. A local copy will then be kept on your computer for future use.
- Not so easy: click the download link at the bottom of the "quick facts" box and the module's ZIP file will download to your desktop. To actually use this, however, you must move it to the /player/modplay subdirectory of whichever directory the Qedoc software is installed in (usually /programme files/qedoc).
