The importance of formative assessment of students in higher educational institute can be carried out by introducing new tools for the assessment. As the teaching trend is changing due to the technological changes, Learning Management System (LMS) plays a vital role in it. There are so many tools available in LMS and Moodle’s quiz serves as a method for the assessment in lieu of paper based testing. As part of curriculum, a compulsory online test (quiz) is been conducted for the entire final year undergraduate students of a University in India. The quiz covers all the core subjects included from first to fifth semester of the undergraduate course. This paper reviews about the creation of Online Test (Quiz) by using LMS Moodle for Computer Science students and its effectiveness by taking into account the marks of students and also from the attitude of the students towards activities of this kind.
