Measure is an instance of Moodle configured specifically for creating online assessments of learning.  Measure can be used for formative (i.e. quizzes) and summative assessments (i.e. examinations).

Measure is used extensively by the summer Language Schools for placement, entrance and exit exams.  Measure is also used by a number of academic year departments for placing new students into particular programs of study.

For a sample assessment, see: Web 2.0 Quiz
