The introduction of e-learning into education offers exceptional opportunities for worldwide access to learning resources. It also provides a new environment with tools to deliver study materials and create novel approaches to learning. LMS Moodle is open source software thought to be the key in the future learning strategies, offers a great range of possibilities and can be easily adapted to a particular subject.

We try to enhance quality and attractiveness of mathematical education using Learning Management System (LMS). We wanted that students could repeat and fix their knowledge in different ways. Therefore, created courses include electronic textbooks, lectures, examples with detailed solutions, as well as assignments and links to interesting mathematical websites. The main objective of this paper is to describe using the quizzes module of LMS Moodle in the process of mathematical education and to analyze obtained research data about usage of these modules by students of the Slovak University of Agriculture in Nitra.

We have created two kinds of quizzes. The first type was designed to repeat theoretical knowledge with the possibility of checking the correctness of the selected answer and thus obtaining immediate feedback. The second type contained practical tasks. The students had to calculate the given tasks and then find the correct answer in the offered options. Tests were assigned to them for independent study before written test during the semester. In results we will present the analysis of students’ answers, outputs of psychometric analysis with the identification of the appropriateness of the questions stated in the quizzes, and relevance assessment of applied Moodle module for improving the educational process.

By applying appropriate e-learning methods, we provide students with the opportunity to study independently over time. We try to reduce their stress before credit written exam and increase their self-study activity.
