Here’s how to clone a test in Moodle 2.0 (i.e. make an exact copy so that both appear in the course; this is useful for making practice tests or copying a basic test format so that it can be reused later in the course):
- Backup the test. Exclude all user data but include activities, blocks, and filters.
- Select “Restore.” Your backup should be listed under user private backups. Simply restore the file to create a second instance.
- Treat one of the instances as your clone: move it, edit it, change its titles and questions. It is a completely independent version of the original file.
