There are several ways to administer online quizzes and exams. Whichever method you select, we recommend giving students the option to try out a practice assessment before attempting the real thing so they can get comfortable with the process.

Creating a timed quiz or exam in Moodle - can have students upload a file containing their answers. Students can type their response and upload or handwrite their exam, use a scanning app on their phone and upload the file. It is also possible to administer an auto-graded multi-choice quiz.

GradeScope is an online service to assist with paper-based grading. Students can upload images of their exam to GradeScope for instructor grading. Swarthmore doesn't have a site-license but instructors may receive a free trial for the first two semesters.
For handwritten exams, students can use a scanning app for their phone to take pictures of their papers, convert to a single PDF file, and upload to a quiz assignment in Moodle, or service such as GradeScope. Microsoft Lens, GeniusScan, Scannable (by Evernote), and the Adobe Scan app are all good choices.
